The Hip Hop drama Empire rises against all odds.
Its rivals, ABC's Modern Family and Black-ish were both on repeat the night tuesday.
American Idol which airs before it had 11.5 million viewers which could have help.
About 10.9 million of viewers tuned it wednesday with an neat score of 4.3 among adults aged of 18 - 49 years old.
The executives at Fox were so in awe about Empire's performance last week they gave the series an early season two renewal. We'll see if it can keep it in the following weeks.
Timbaland posted the picture above on his Instagram account sided by Yazz and Jussie Smollet also known as Hakeem Lyon and Jamaal Lyon from Empire.
Perhaps it could be a sign that he could appear in it.
