Who comes up with this nonsense--show disappointing Black??? TV shows are not real. They are make believe and a "brain" escape from real life...called Entertainment. I'm more than entertained with this show. It's got everything...COOKIE is the greatest creation since sliced bread. The acting is great. Andre going nuts was unbelievable and Cookie drunk...too fabulous. I believe this is real life in the entertainment business...just watch TMZ and the entertainment news shows and Social Media. All thumbs and fingers up for "EMPIRE".
