Feeling Meme-ish: <i>Empire</i>

Like Cookie, Empire arrived on screen last year and took the TV world by storm. The show broke the norm, gaining viewers every week, rather than dwindling (as almost all shows do) and reaching an impressive 14.7 million viewers. Audiences can’t get enough of the larger than life drama, the plot twists, and the amazing music. Glee paved the way for musical TV shows, but Empire has fans buying original soundtracks and jamming to them on their way to work.

Indeed, the plots gets a little whacky and don’t always make sense (Chris Rock as a terrifying gangster? Really?), but that’s completely overshadowed by those goosebump-inducing moments and superb acting from the likes of Taraji P. Henson. Everything we love (and hate) about this wild and crazy show has been meme-ified, so sip some tea and enjoy these 25 hilarious #Empire memes.
