Empire’s Ratings Sink Lower Because Of Jussie Smollett!

The most recent episode of Empire may have been the lowest view count in Empire history.

This week’s Clement Virgo directed “in Loving Virtue,” bagged the lowest ratings in the show’s history, according to Complex.

The episode premiered March 20 and scored a 1.1 rating in the 18-49 demographic with just under 4 million viewers. The show fell 11 percent in the ratings and 10 percent in total viewership when compared with last weeks episode. The series’ previous ratings low was a 2.1 rating with 4.2 million viewers back in 2018.

It is no surprise the path Empire is on due to the recent developments in the Jussie Smollett case. Lee Daniels discussed the mood of the team following Smollett’s arrest in a recent Instagram video, though he did not mention any names.

 

“These past couple of weeks have been a freakin’ roller coaster,” Daniels said. “We have, me and my cast have, experienced pain and anger and sadness and frustration and really don’t know how to deal with it.”

Last week, Smollett did plead not guilty after being indicted on a 16 felony count of disorderly conduct in connection with a Chicago attack police are now claiming to be a “hoax.”
