'Empire' will live on!!! That's right, the HIT Fox show has been RENEWED for season 4! Even after a SLIGHT dip in the ratings, the prime-time, hip-hop soap has the GREEN LIGHT to go on...
While it has slipped from its early meteoric ratings heights, Empire continues to rank as the No. 1 broadcast drama among Adults 18-49 for the third consecutive season and is the No. 1 broadcast entertainment program among Adults 18-34, Teens and young women. Empire also commands Fox’s largest Total Multi-Platform audience, averaging almost 16 million Total Viewers for the 2016/17 broadcast season, up +82% from its Live + Same Day delivery.
NOW I EQUATE some of the drop in ratings to the CONSTANT pre-emptions. I mean each time we got IN TO THE SHOW, it was taken off the air for WEEKS for The World Series and other events, so the airing was a bit ROCKY. AND with our attention spans set up the way they are today, we will QUICKLY find something else to do or watch. The 2nd portion of season 3 returns March 22nd, so HOPEFULLY they can RAMP UP the EXCITEMENT to carry us into season 4!!
