FOX’s new drama Empire premieres tonight after the season premiere of American Idol. It’s a soapy drama set in the world of hip hop that has Oscar nominees both in front of  the camera(stars Terrence Howard and Taraji P. Henson) and behind it (director and executive producer Lee Daniels). Will the edgy drama prove a good match for the increasingly staid American Idol? Last January, Rake premiered to a 1.7 adults 18-49 rating following the Thursday installment of American Idol.  How do you think Empire will do?
