Fif went to Instagram Saturday (September 24) and promised an end to Henson’s “Empire” was on the horizon.
Both Henson and “Empire” co-star Vivica A. Fox both went at 50 this week over him bashing their show’s season three premiere ratings.
Taraji and “Empire” co-star Jussie Smollett also showed love to “Power” actress Naturi Naughton amid the TV rivalry.
Yesterday (September 23), Fif acknowledged “Empire” experiencing a lower premiere rating than its previous season’s opener.
The series suffered a big drop in its 18-49 demographic in comparison to last year’s season two premiere.
These “Empire” Season 3 premiere numbers are big — the problem is, they’re not “Empire”-big. The Lee Daniels hip-hop soap opera tumbled 39 percent last night in the key 18-49 demographic versus its sophomore season start. It still handed Fox an easy Wednesday win, however, and was essentially steady with its Season 2 finale. “Empire” followed a decent debut from the new cop show “Lethal Weapon.” Last year, lead-in “Rosewood” fared better in the main demo, but worse among overall viewers.
