The Unstoppable Ratings of Empire

TV Ratings: 'Empire' Finishes Unstoppable Season With More Growth

The meteoric rise (and rise and rise) of Empire's first season concluded during Wednesday's two-hour finale. And though it appears to be again steady in the targeted demographic of adults 18-49, the show, as is its habit, added even more viewers.

Two hours of Empire averaged a 6.5 rating among adults 18-49 and 16.7 million viewers. As for its audience, that's up 800,000 viewers from the previous week. The tune-in during the regular 9 p.m. hour was even more impressive. In its time slot, Empire fetched a 6.9 rating in the demo and 17.6 million viewers. (The nightly total gave Fox broadcast's highest-rated night of regular programming since American Idol in 2012.)

Empire premiered Jan. 7 to a 3.8 rating among adults 18-49 and 9.9 million viewers. It subsequently grew its viewership every week for each of the 11 episodes that followed — and, with the exception last week's penultimate outing, Empire also managed the same feat in the key demo.
