    Smollett looks like the Jack Ass that he truly is~~good of him to lawyer up and let Foxx blow in the wind, aint it?

    Not that I'm defending her in any way at all.

    I think that this particular case is political dynamite. Maybe with nitroglycerin added. We haven't even begun to see all of the potential layers here.

    Agreed. I bet all the players involved are eating bowls of Xanax for dinner every night.

    @Snoods I don't think that the Cook County legal community understands normal vocabulary.

    After all, Kim Foxx, "recused" herself from the Smollett case, and then turned around and arranged a full dismissal of SIXTEEN FELONIES, set by a Grand jury.

    What kind of ratings was Empire getting before this whole thing started?

    I am assuming the show was successful before this happened and would have continued and been renewed. So, look at all of the people that have lost jobs because of this fiasco. Jussie has left a long and wide trail of destruction from his little stunt, and he continues to refuse to accept any responsibility for it.

    The show has been dropping in the ratings for the last couple of years. It was on life support as it was, then JS came along with his nonsense.

    It should have been cancelled but probably was kept due to the 'event'.

    Interesting. I saw just a part of one episode probably a year or more ago. It just wasn't my type of show. You may be right that the controversy maybe brought a little uptick in viewership but thats all. Fox would have cancelled anyway, but sure as hell will now. And they arent about to be blackmailed by a couple of actors over it.

    A little bit, huh? The show probably would have limped along a few more years.

    Jussie says, “Look at how famous I am, I have stalkers and people who want to lynch and anthrax me! I demand a raise!”

    The stars of the show puff out their chests and say, “We are The Famous Stars of Empire and we demand Jussie’s return to the show, posthaste!”

    Fox says, “Eh. Who needs this? Cancel the show.”

    Oops.
