has empire ratings dropped?
“Empire” ratings have hit a new low… wow and this is not the 1st time..
The highest-rated scripted series on TV, Fox’s Empire, had a rough re-entry after a month-long hiatus for baseball coverage. In its first airing since October 12, the drama posted series-low marks of a 2.9 Live+Same Day rating in adults 18-49 and 8.1 million viewers. There could be an upward adjustment in the finals, but Empire is well below its previous L+SD demo mark of 3.4. (UPDATE: Empire did not get a bump in the finals.) Fox freshman Lethal Weapon (1.8) handled the lengthy hiatus better, up a tenth from its previous outing. Empire still was the top program Wednesday, securing a nightly victory for Fox in 18-49 and total viewers.
