The second season isn't the phenomenon of the first. But no other series on network TV this year has better proven the power of diversity.

Much like its centerpiece, Cookie, this is a show that knows its strengths and flaunts them.

Richard Vine
Empire was dubbed the "hip-hop Dynasty", which isn't far off; but it owes just as much to more recent mono-titled nighttime soaps such as Revenge or Scandal. In other words, perfect American TV.
