Empire, the breakout FOX drama has seen a meteoric rise in the short time that it’s been on air. The show’s success, which cames as a surprise to many (ahem) critics, continues to grow in viewership every week.

Entertainment Weeklyreports,

According to Fox, Empire is the only primetime scripted series to grow in total viewers over each of its first five telecasts since at least 1991. This record has almost certainly stood for longer than that, but Nielsen revised its measuring system 23 years ago and so comparisons can only be properly calculated that far back.

The sixth episode of Empire airs tonight at 9pm on FOX, check your local listings. You can catch up on past episodes on Amazon or Hulu+.
