Empire

Last night I watched Empire’s premiere.  And by the overnights, 9.9 million of you were along with me.

I love NPR’s take on it, calling it a soap opera set to music.  It explains why I instinctively knew why I’d love this show.  But once I tuned in I found other reasons.

Like Taraji P. Henson’s eyebrow action.  Epic!!!

How it had more music than Galavant (but less than lead-in American Idol)

And how Gabourey Sidibe is in several scenes and ads – let’s just hope she gets to use those crazy acting chops we know and love.

We’ll see where Empire goes, but they have something special here.
