Terrence Howard‘s Lucious Lyon isn’t the most popular character on Empire. Taraji P. Henson‘s Cookie is. But Lucious is one of the show’s central figures, so his reduced role this season after being sent to prison will be felt. However, the reason for his reduced role might not be just a plot device. The auspicious first season of Empire revived Howard’s […]

It looks as though there maybe some legal trouble on the horizon for FOX’s hit television show, Empire.

Empire‘s Jussie Smollett is a singer and actor, and now he can add model to his ever growing resume. He’s just been named the face of Sean John’s fall/holiday 2015 ad campaign, “Dream Big.” He will join Diddy‘s son, Quincy Brown, for the ads which will debut in September, according to The Wrap. It will first appear in GQ […]

Lee Daniels knows to strike while the iron is hot. The Empire creator and executive producer is bringing another musical drama to Fox very similar to Dreamgirls. Thanks to the success from Empire, it seems Daniels will get the green light for whatever project he brings to the network. According to Entertainment Weekly, the title of the show […]

Empire is still on our minds even though the season one finale wrapped up in March (anyone still listening to the soundtrack like us?), and it turns out we’re not alone as the show was named “Program of the Year” at the TCA Awards on August 8, according to The Wrap. The TCA Awards represent excellence […]

  Fox has released the first official trailer for season two of Empire, and it looks juicy, scandalous and delicious. There are so many things going on, so let’s break them down as best we can. Lucious Lyon is still locked up, but it looks like Cookie is still going to ride with him, despite […]

That doesn’t mean they aren’t good for each other in real life, though. The castmates are getting ready to become husband and wife. Byers and Gealey have become officially engaged, according to US Weekly. The news comes the two just spent some […]

The Emmys nominations featured noticeably less backlash than last year, probably because it was less white and Tatiana Maslany got her nomination (you try playing multiple personalities on one show). However, there’s no such thing as a perfect nomination list. The clearly flawed category was Outstanding Drama Series. The nominees were: Better Call Saul (the Breaking Bad sequel/prequel) Downton Abbey (people watch […]

Everybody and their mama will appear on the second season of Empire, and now you can have your shot at it, too. Fox will charter a bus across the country to find the next Empire superstar, according to Entertainment Weekly. Here’s how it works. If the bus stops in your city during the 15-stop tour, fans will be […]

Kelly Rowland is going to be adding some throwback fab to season two of Empire! As if we weren’t already waiting on the return of Empire like it was the next train, there’s word that Kelly will be playing the mother of all Lyons! According to E! News, she will pop up on season 2 […]

50 Cent is nowhere near done with his one-man vendetta against Empire, and now he’s picking one against the BET Awards, which just aired last Sunday (June 28). 50 is crying foul for the network picking Terrence Howard as best actor over Power‘s Omari Hardwick. “It’s a damn shame what happened to the BET Awards. Fox bought the whole g-ddamned […]

When you’re the co-creator of a show that arguably saved a television network when it comes to the ratings race, good things tend to happen to you. So, Lee Daniels is reaping the benefits of Empire, his runaway hit. Daniels has signed a muti-year deal with 20th Century Fox Television that allows him to direct, write and supervise television […]
