Empires Viewership Hits New Record
‘Empire’s Ratings Match High, Viewership Hits New Record – Update
UPDATE, 1:14 PM: Looks like Empire held its ground after all and even grew a bit more viewershipwise. With the final numbers in, the Lee Daniels, Danny Strong, Brian Grazer and Ilene Chaiken executive produced hip hop family drama has scored a 5.8/17 among adults 18-49. Up from the 5.6/17 of earlier this morning, the penultimate episode of Empire’s first season now matches last week’s demo high for the Fox show. And as one category rises for Empire so it seems does another with viewership now at 14.9 million – a new high for the series and a 4% bop up from last week. This morning’s preliminary numbers had the show’s audience at 14.7 million, which was the new high for just over 4-hours.
