You in Danger, Cookie: Bad News for Empire?

The show just took a major hit.

Published November 10, 2016

Somebody better call Cookie because the Lyon family dynasty is in jeopardy! It's not the end of the world, but it is serious. Hint: did you watch anything other than CNN last night?


According to The Hollywood Reporter, ratings for the popular soap drama took a major dip. Wednesday night's episode had an average 2.9 rating in the key demo (adults 18-49), which was a crazy six-tenths of a point drop from its last original episode aired before the three-weeks long World Series.

The good news is that the show maintained its number-one slot as the most watched program of the night with an average of 8.1 million viewers. Hopefully, folks will feel a little better to watch the Lyons next week as the family's madness will most likely top that of our current national politics.  

In the meantime, check out what new Empire cast member Taye Diggs thinks about being on the hit show.
