‘Empire’ hits lowest ratings ever following Jussie Smollett scandal


The “Empire” strikes out.

Jussie Smollett‘s TV drama crashed and burned Wednesday night, when 3.97 million viewers tuned in – the lowest ratings in the show’s history, according to TVLine.
Jussie Smollett, Terrence Howard, Taraji P. Henson, Bryshere Y. Gray and Trai Byers on "Empire."
A day earlier, Smollett told reporters that he was ready “to get back to work” after Chicago prosecutors dropped all criminal charges against him for allegedly fabricating a racial and homophobic attack.

Fox has not said whether “Empire” will be renewed for another season.

Lee Daniels, the show’s co-creator and executive producer, has said that the past few weeks have been “a freakin’ rollercoaster” for the cast and crew.
