'Empire' Lost 3m Viewers Over 'Gay Stuff'
There’s no doubt that Empire has been a success story for Fox. The show has been a ratings juggernaut for the network, and for an entire season, the show continued to show increases in overall viewership on the night the show aired. However, over the course of its Season 2 return, those numbers have dropped a wee bit. Many believe the surge in ratings each week was not sustainable over the long haul, but 50 Cent believes there’s another reason the numbers have dropped a bit: There’s too much gay stuff.
In an Instagram post that was later deleted, 50 Cent laughed at a post talking about how 3 million less viewers tuned in for this week’s episode, a post that also noted that the “extra gay stuff” likely turned viewers off.
