Empire has passed The Big Bang Theory as this season’s No. 1 rated series on broadcast television. Joe Adalian of Vulture tweeted the numbers out, showing that Empire scored a 6.9 and TBBT a 6.7 in the key 18-49 demographic.
Before Empire came on TV, the Big Bang Theory on CBS was the top rated series on broadcast television in the US. Well, not anymore. That title now belongs to Empire on Fox.
According to the final data released this week, Empire, starring Taraji P. Henson and Terrence Howard, surpassed The Big Bang Theory as broadcast television's no.1 series this season in the coveted 18 - 49 advertising demo.
