    Congratulations Fil Eisler, on the simply amazing debut season of Empire. The Fox show completed its first season this week and the numbers were staggering: 17.6 million viewers tuned in to watch the season finale. When the show debuted in January, it was watched by 9.9 million viewers. Empire proceeded to gain viewership every single week to the finale, a feat Nielsen stated was unmatched in their history of estimating viewership.

    Fil’s score was an unexpected and brilliant counterpoint to the songs featured on the show – recorded by a full orchestra, it was full of heightened drama, with the occasional melding of hip-hop beats into the mix. Congratulations and continued success to Fil and to everyone involved in the making of Empire. We can’t wait for next season!
