Yooooooo. From last night’s episode of Empire.
Will be taking over your television screen, Facebook feed, and Twitter timeline next month.
In other news water continues to be wet. Empire star Jussie Smollett sits on a tore up couch and tells Ellen what I myself suspected since the show became the biggest thing on television.
This has been Sharpton and NAACP’s game for eternity. Sell out to multi-national corporations who see paying them as away to keep black people at bay, and to permanently skirt changing racist policies that have been in effect for decades upon decades.

A lawsuit against Comcast, Time Warner Cable Inc., Rev. Al Sharpton and the NAACP alleges that the media companies discriminated against black-owned businesses and paid activists like Sharpton to “whitewash” its practices. The complaint alleges that Comcast gave large donations to Sharpton, the NAACP and other civil rights groups to make it appear that the cable company was promoting diversity, even while it was failing to follow through on a promise to do so.
The lawsuit, seeking $20 billion, was filed in Los Angeles federal court Friday by Entertainment Studios, a television company founded by black producer and comedian Byron Allen and the National Association of African-American Owned Media (NAAAOM).
Love it or Hate it, this is a juggernaut.
If your guess was: “Empire’s ratings just defied all the laws of broadcast television to once again rise to a record number” … then you would be right.
Wednesday’s episode hit 12.9 million viewers and a huge 5.1 rating among adults 18-49. That’s up 6 percent from last week in the demo (which, of course, was a record rating too).
In total viewers, Empire has gone up every single week – six total – since its premiere.
Terrence Howard still has a perm in 2014? Based on this trailer I am giving this show a half a season at best. Lee Daniels has once again created some stereotypical coon shit that he masks as a movie. Taraji has got to stop accepting these kind of roles, she is way too talented to settle for this type of bullshit.
