RATINGS: Fox's 'Empire' Ratings Nearly Beat 'The Walking Dead'

Ratings for Fox's 'Empire' continue to grow.

According to reports, 'Empire' has maanged to grow their ratings for the 11th straight week. The ratings for the hip-hop drama rose to 16.5 million viewers and a colossal 6.4 million in the important advertising demographic 18 to 49. That means the 'Empire' Finale had more viewers than any season finale of Bing Bang Theory. Whenever a show is described as bigger than The Big Bang Theory it's usually a good sign. Currently, the stars on 'The Big Bang Theory' are getting paid a million dollars an episode. Expect Terrence Howard and Tarji P. Henson's agents fighting for a pay bump in the next few weeks. Meanwhile, co-creator Danny Strong, doesn't know when the second season of 'Empire' will premiere, but when it eventually does, it may overtake 'The Walking Dead' in the number of viewers, fans, and cult following.
