Ratings: FOX’s “Empire” Falls To Another Series Low, Still Leads Night In Demo

Empire [FOX]

For the second straight week, FOX’s “Empire” set new series lows in adults 18-49 and overall viewership.

According to fast national data posted by Showbuzz, Wednesday’s “Empire” drew a 2.2 adults 18-49 rating and averaged 6.31 million overall viewers.

The numbers trail the 2.4 rating and 6.91 million viewer mark garnered by last week’s episode, which ranked as series lows at the time.

While “Empire” data sometimes receives an upward adjustment in the final report, the adjustment will doubtfully be enough to close the gap. On a live+same-day basis, this episode will rank as the worst-performing installment to date.

Despite that distinction, it still won the night in adults 18-49. It took fourth place — below “Survivor,” “Criminal Minds” and “Chicago PD” — in overall viewership.

— FOX led into “Empire” with “Shots Fired,” which drew a 0.9 rating and 3.64 million viewers. Last week’s episode posted a 1.0 in the demo and 3.77 million in viewership.
