What’s This TV Show About?
Airing on the FOX television network, Empire stars Terrence Howard, Taraji P. Henson, Bryshere Y. Gray, Jussie Smollett, Trai Byers, Gabourey Sidibe, Ta’Rhonda Jones, Serayah, Andre Royo, Rhyon Nicole Brown, and Nicole Ari Parker. The series revolves around the Empire Entertainment company, founder Lucious Lyon (Howard), his three sons (Gray, Smollett, and Byers), and their mother, Cookie (Henson). The Lyons lost the company in season four and season five finds the clan still trying to reclaim Empire two years later.
Season Five Ratings
The fifth season of Empire on FOX averaged a 1.35 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 4.52 million viewers. Compared to season four, that’s down by 27% and 20%, respectively. Find out how Empire stacks up against the other FOX TV shows.
Will FOX cancel or renew Empire for season six? Though they are down, the ratings are still the strongest of FOX’s shows. Given the state of the rest of FOX’s slate, I have no doubt it will be renewed (despite the controversy surrounding Smollett). I’ll keep an eye on the Nielsens and update this page with breaking developments. Subscribe for free Empire cancellation and renewal alerts.
