The show everyone is talking about just maybe one of the most popular shows in recent TV history. Empire has broken a ratings record that stood for more than 23 years. According to Fox, Empire is the only primetime scripted series to grow in total viewers over each of its first five telecasts since at least 1991.

So far this season for the first two weeks with total DVR data available, Empire is averaging 14 million viewers and a super-strong 5.6 rating among adults 18-19. That’s not as big as the zombie show, but there has been nothing in the adult demo since 2008 that has been.

Interesting that no shows have really been that popular in the past couple of year I thought I was the only one who thought TV sucked.
