KINGSTON, Jamaica - Jan. 27, 2016 - PRLog -- On January 7, 2015 the “Pilot” episode of Fox’s hip-hop drama series Empire aired and since then nothing has been the same.  The show’s ratings soared, increasing every week although the usual trend is for a show to decline as its initial season progresses.

Empire shattered a ratings record that had not been broken in 3 years.  The show was the only primetime scripted series to increase in total viewers over each of its first five telecasts since 1991.  The record has stood for a longer period of time yet Nielsen’s measuring system was revised 23 years ago therefore comparisons can only be accurately calculated that far back.

In one short year the series was able to earn 35 nominations making it the most-nomination television show of the season.  In addition, Empire was included on The American Film Institute’s ‘Top 10 Television Program’ list.

Gary Newman and Dana Walden, Chairmen and CEO of Fox, announced that the company has renewed Empire for a third season.  The show’s second season will return on March 30, 2016 and fans will finally find out #WhoPushedRhonda!
