Fox's New Series Empire

Empire is an American musical drama television serious that debuted on January 7, 2015. The show is based on a hip hop music and entertainment company, Empire Enterprises, and the drama among the members of the founders of the company. They are all fighting to control the mass music company. It is shown every Wednesday for an hour, and has done so well that it is already renewed for a second season on January 17, 2015, only seven days after its television debut. The hit series is getting a lot of buzz on both music and television blogs.  Every show has a hook and ends in a nail biting cliffhanger that makes you wanting more!  It is only five episodes in and has quickly become my favorite television show. 

Empire is Fox's number 1 new show due in large part to Henson's captivating and unbelievable performance as the scorned and sassy ex-wife of music mogul Lucious Lyon (Terrence Howard), who returns to the picture after a 17-year jail stint to claim a stake in the entertainment empire she helped launch.
"She's the truth. She is the walking truth!" Henson said when asked what she thinks draws viewers to Cookie. "She spent 17 years living with some of the most horrible humans on earth. She has nothing to lose."
Fans immediately embraced Cookie for her honesty and fearlessness.  I also admire her determination and ambition, she is truly a role model- minus the jail part.
"You can't scare her," Henson said. "She's not scared of anything or anyone."

I would definitely recommend watching this show, it's very well made and there is a character for everyone to relate to!
