Empire Premiere

The two-hour season finale of Empire airs tonight on FOX. The show has become such a phenomenon that it’s hard to believe that it launched just two months ago. Its ratings growth has been unprecedented. It premiered to a 3.8 adults 18-49 rating, then growing for eight consecutive weeks. Two weeks ago it hit a 5.8 adults 18-49 rating, which was the highest adults 18-49 number for a broadcast drama since 2009. Last week, with daytime savings time sinking its teeth into most show’s ratings, Empire had to “settle” for tying its series high 5.8.  This week, the cast has hit almost every talk show on television to promote the finale and its earlier start time. ABC and NBC are airing repeats — not that The Mysteries of Laura would have been much of a threat to its dominance. So will ratings climb to The Walking Dead territory tonight, or has the show maxxed out at 5.8? Make your prediction then speculate wildly about what you think will happen tonight in the comments.
