According to new reports, “Empire” producer Brian Glazer hinted at the possibility Tuesday (April 7) on “Good Morning America.”
“Eminem, I know, loves our show. And I produced 8 Mile. I’m going to beg him to get on our show. He and Oprah Winfrey. Somehow I’m going to get one or both them on our show.” (“Good Morning America”)
Based on recent reports, the show’s finale scored a 6.5 rating among adults 18-49 and brought in 16.7 million viewers.
First of all, that’s a record for the TV ratings rule breaking series and up 71% and 69% respectively from the results of the show’s debut back on January 7. Secondly, compared to the series’ March 11 1-hour show that’s a 12% rise in both categories. It’s a 2% bop up from earlier demo numbers this morning and a 1% rise viewershipwise.
