|Empire This Season|
|3.8 -> 4.0 -> 4.4 -> 4.3 -> 4.6 -> 4.8 -> 5.2 -> 5.4 -> 5.8 -> 5.8|
For a show that has grown almost every week, it's hard not to expect it again for the big finale. What could hold it back is the extra episode at 8:00, an hour that is lower-viewed and, probably more importantly, not Empire's regular timeslot. Many a show has underachieved in these out-of-timeslot airings. But in the case of a finale for something as hot as Empire I think "underachieve" means it just goes very close to last week's rating. Then it'll be up a good bit in the 9:00 half.
Over/Under: 6.15. (If the finals separate the 8:00 and 9:00 episodes, the over/under for the sum of the two will be 12.35.)
