Erratic Schedule
21 March 2017 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I can see now why I pulled the plug 6 years ago on cable and satellite TV. I have quit watching Empire just based on the Fox network's viewing schedule. These clowns like the rest of the networks start a show for a few episodes then it's gone for 2 weeks or more than it comes back. This show started with 8 episodes and hasn't been seen since the first week of December. I don't even know what was going on in this show anymore. It is supposed to come back this week but I'm no longer wasting my time with it anymore.

For Fox and the rest of the loser networks you start a show then finish it. Don't just throw some other garbage show in the same time slot for 2-3 months. Then expect us to come back to the show we were watching. Hollywood has gone in the toilet. Just a matter of time before we all just push the flush lever for good.
