Critic Reviews for Chimes at Midnight

Hold up. Are we entirely sure Empire's late white hope would applaud hubby Andre's fedora-sporting, abandoned-warehouse lurking, mama's tatas-exposing power-grab? Actually, of course she would.

This show is a mess. The writers need to focus more on the music industry and less on stupid plot points that do nothing for the overall story.

Episode 6 is a welcome shock to the show's system.

Nov 17, 2016 | Full Review…

This episode is all about Empire getting "hacked" by a "hacker" who "hacks" into their private server.

He seemed quite at home in the role of broad-shouldered head honcho this week. Did Andre find his true calling?
