Last night Mimi made her appearance on ‘Empire’ .
Kitty, the mega-superstar singer who is clearly based on Mariah Carey, she just isn’t technically playing herself—when Cookie pulled a few strings and got the singer to collaborate with Jamal . Only Jamal’s post-shooting PTSD made it impossible for him to perform.
Unfortunately Mimi’s magic touch could not save the show.
According to fast national data posted by Showbuzz, Wednesday’s “Empire” drew a 3.3 adults 18-49 rating and 9.24 million total viewers. The numbers trail the 3.7 rating and 9.65 million viewer mark garnered by last week’s episode.
They, moreover, rank as the lowest for a non-holiday edition of “Empire.” Only last year’s Thanksgiving Eve episode, which was excluded from the final averages as a “special,” drew a smaller live+same-day audience (3.2, 9.21 million).
This is Empire’s third straight week for ratings slip.
