The renewal is hardly a surprise, as “Empire” is one of the biggest hits to come to network television in the past decade. In its third season, the primetime family soap ranks as the top broadcast drama among adults 18-49 — a title it has held through its entire run. Though its ratings dipped this year, “Empire” still finished out the first half of its third season with nearly 8 million overnight viewers for the midseason finale. For the 2016-2017 season, the show has averaged almost 16 million total viewers, becoming the show to nab Fox’s largest total multi-platform audience.

images (61)“Empire” has received numerous Emmy, Grammy and Golden Globe nominations through its three seasons, including a Golden Globe win for star Taraji P. Henson, who has received back-to-back Emmy nods.

Along with Henson — who plays the breakout character Cookie — “Empire” stars Terrence Howard, Jussie Smollett, Bryshere “Yazz” Gray, Trai Byers, Grace Byers, Gabourey Sidibe, Ta’Rhonda Jones, Serayah, Bre-Z, Xzibit and Morocco Omari. The series is known for bringing on notable guest stars, including Mariah Carey, Taye Diggs, Phylicia Rashad, Chris Rock, Alicia Keys, Marisa Tomei, Naomi Campbell, Ludacris, Adam Rodriguez, Rosie O’ Donnell and Andre Royo.

Taraji-P-Henson-Terrence-Howard-Fight-Instagram-Video“Empire” was co-created by Lee Daniels and Danny Strong. Ilene Chaiken serves as showrunner. Executive producers are Daniels, Strong, Chaiken, Brian Grazer, Francie Calfo and Sanaa Hamri. Imagine Television produces with 20th Century Fox Television.

Also worth mentioning is the fact that “Empire” had its fair share of celebrity appearances like Mariah Carey appearing as a guest star and stars like Taye Diggs and Phylicia Rashad had recurring appearances on the series. It has also been speculated that Rumer Willis will show up in multiple episodes of “Empire” season 4.

Watch “Empire” in Australia on Fox8 channel. The show can also be streamed online on Channel Ten.

 

“Empire” has over time proved to a critical hit with multiple Emmy Awards to its name. It is also Fox’s largest total multiplatform traffic magnet with an average of 16 million total viewers for the 2016-17 broadcast session, according to a Deadline report.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, “Empire” season 4 will consist of 18 episodes, much like the previous two seasons. The show is currently under a three-month pause, as music drama “Star” has taken over the time slot, which prevents “Empire” from returning until March 2017.

The THR further reports that NBC’s debut family drama, “This Is Us” could prove to be a competition for the show. “Empire’s” ratings fell to a 2.5 low during the early phase of the last season before making a rebound in the final episodes.

Kendrick Lamar Replaces Himself at No. 1 on Billboard + Twitter Top Tracks Chart 4/7/2017 by Trevor Anderson

kendrick-lamar-humble-twitter-2017-billboard-1548

Kendrick Lamar scores his fifth No. 1 on Billboard + Twitter Top Tracks as “Humble” storms in atop the chart dated April 15, knocking his own “The Heart Part 4” from the summit. With the new No. 1, he becomes the fourth act to succeed himself at the top, following Zayn (who completed the feat twice), Justin Bieber and Ed Sheeran.

In addition to “Heart,” Lamar previously reigned on Top Tracks with “I” (one week in 2014) and his featured turns on Taylor Swift’s “Bad Blood” (three weeks in 2015) and Maroon 5’s “Don’t Wanna Know” (one week in 2016).

Billboard + Twitter Top Tracks is a weekly ranking of the most shared and/or mentioned songs on Twitter in the U.S., ranked by the volume of shares over a seven-day period (Monday to Sunday).

“Humble” and its accompanying music video premiered on March 30, and the clip has soared to more than 33.1 million global views on YouTube through April 4.

The release of two new tracks within the past two weeks had lead to speculation over an impending new album from the rapper. He ended “Heart” with the prophetic line – “Y’all got ’til April the 7th to get y’all sh*t together,” which some interpreted as a possible release date for his fourth studio set. However, on Apr. 6, an iTunes page for a new Kendrick album — titled, at least tentatively, as ALBUM — appeared, with Apr. 14 listed as the expected release date.

One last note on “Heart”: Though the song departs the Top Tracks peak, dipping 1-16, it arrives on other Billboard surveys, including a No. 11 start on Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs and a No. 22 debut on the Billboard Hot 100.

Also in the top five on Top Tracks, Cheat Codes makes its chart debut as “No Promises,” featuring Demi Lovato, arrives at No. 4. With the debut, Lovato earns her seventh top 10 hit and the first since “Body Say” last August. Cheat Codes posted the song’s official audio clip to their YouTube channel on March 30; the clip has climbed to 465,000 global clicks.

Joining the above cuts in the top 10 is The Chainsmokers‘ “The One,” which zooms to a No. 10 debut. The duo posted the song — the first track on their first-full length album Memories: Do Not Open, arriving April 7 — on Facebook on March 27. The clip has 1.9 million views on Facebook, and more than 10.5 million global plays on Spotify through April 6.

“The One” is the fifth top 10 hit for the EDM pair on the Top Tracks chart, following “Closer,” featuring Halsey (No. 1 for one week), “All We Know,” featuring Phoebe Ryan (No. 4), “Paris” (No. 5) and “Something Just Like This,” with Coldplay (No. 10).

Just underneath “The One,” Selena Gomez sprints to a No. 11 entrance on Top Tracks with “Only You,” from the soundtrack to the Netflix series 13 Reasons Why, which she co-executive produced. The tune is a cover of Yaz’s 1982 song, which reached No. 67 on the Hot 100.

Gomez’s official YouTube audio for “You,” released March 30, has clocked more than 4.2 million global plays. “You” continues a busy week on the charts for the pop singer, as her collaboration with Kygo on “It Ain’t Me” jumps 19-14 on Top Tracks and completes an identical five-spot rise (from 20-15) on the Hot 100.
