“THE STREETS AIN’T MADE FOR EVERYONE, THAT’S WHY THEY MADE SIDEWALKS”

– Cookie Lyon.

Fox has given his hip-hop soap opera “Empire” an 18 episode second season after just two episodes, Fox Television Groups co-chairman and CEO Dana Walden announced during Saturdays Television Critics Association press tour in Pasadena.

The show will return to its same Wednesday 9 p.m. time slot next season. Co-chief Gary Newman said:

“We’d be crazy to move it,”

Fox Television Group Co-Chairman/CEO Dana Walden told reporters on a Monday morning conference call:

“We don’t want to be greedy, if we came back with the audience we left off with we’d be thrilled,”

Joe Earley adds:

“We do believe there is an opportunity to grow the show, so we have been focused on catch-up,”

If this wasn’t good enough, there are some new editions to the show. Coming on board for Season 2 will be singer/songwriter Ne-Yo, in addition to Timbaland, will also add to Empire’s show music and “authenticity.”
