Wednesday’s nights airing of FOX’s uber-hit series, Empire continued its unbelievable performance in the ratings department!
The series once again gained viewers and extended its run of unprecedented ratings growth hitting a series high in viewership for the fifth straight week since its premiere and as the night’s No. 1 program in key demos! According to Variety, and the national estimates from Nielsen, “Empire” (4.7 rating/14 share in adults 18-49, 11.9 million viewers overall) was up a tick in the demo while gaining about 400,000 total viewers to hit new highs in both categories.”
Since bowing with 9.9 million viewers on January 7th, the soap has grown with each week: 10.3 million, 11.1 million, 11.4 million, 11.5 million and now 11.9 million.
Last week, it became the first program in the history of Nielsen’s Meters (going back to 1991) to grow in total viewers with each of its four episodes following its premiere. And last night, it added to its record.
