“Empire” producer Lee Daniels recently revealed his interest in getting Hollywood icon Denzel Washington to appear on “Empire.”
Last month reports claimed “Empire” broke new ground with season-high ratings.
The hip-hop drama’s third episode climbed to 10.9 million viewers and a big 4.3 rating among adults 18-49. That’s up 8 percent after the show already shocked the industry by climbing in week two from its strong premiere. This just doesn’t … hardly … ever … happen. (Entertainment Weekly)
