Jussie Smollett's Arrest Is Trashing 'Empire' Ratings

Ratings for Fox's "Empire" dropped dramatically when the show returned from a hiatus last week.

According to Business Insider, it was the first new episode to air following actor Jussie Smollett's arrest.

However, Nielsen ratings clocked just 4 million viewers-- 13% down from the last episode in December, and 35% from the comparable premiere last year.

Smollett was arrested when Chicago police determined the actor had staged a racist, homophobic assault on himself as a publicity stunt.
