The hot new scripted series which features fan favorites Taraji P. Henson and Terrence Howard, closes on a series ratings high after a record breaking 9 consecutive weeks of growth.
The two-hour season finale of Empire earned a gigantic series high 6.4, up 10 percent from last week’s series high 5.8 adults 18-49 rating.
The first hour notched a 6.0 while the second hour, which Nielsen will count as the part of the series overall average rating, rose to a 6.8.
It was the highest rated night for a broadcast network airing regular entertainment programming since the January 18, 2012 season premiere of American Idol, which garnered a 7.4 adults 18-49 rating. (source)
