​Fox’s �Empire” season three premiere ratings has been hit with a blow! However, the must-watch show’s return this week still managed to bring in a respectable number of viewers. The series suffered a big drop in its 18-49 demographic in comparison to last year’s season two premiere.

These �Empire” Season 3 premiere numbers are big � the problem is, they’re not �Empire”-big. The Lee Daniels hip-hop soap opera tumbled 39 percent last night in the key 18-49 demographic versus its sophomore season start. It still handed Fox an easy Wednesday win, however, and was essentially steady with its Season 2 finale. �Empire” followed a decent debut from the new cop show �Lethal Weapon.” Last year, lead-in �Rosewood” fared better in the main demo, but worse among overall viewers according to The Wrap.

Despite the dip, �Empire” still managed to bring in over 10 million viewers.

�Empire” was the night’s top show, drawing a 4.1 in the demo and 10.8 million total viewers, but was down significantly from last fall’s season-two debut (6.7, 16.2 million). The series premiere of �Lethal Weapon” at 8 p.m. drew a 2.2 and 7.8 million viewers, down 8% in the demo, but up 4% in total viewers from the series premiere of �Rosewood” last fall in the same time period.
