Falsely adding non-existent viewers to failing or plummeting television or radio shows to keep or gain advertising dollars is a scam Hollywood uses that is wholly illegal. I have broken stories on this before "New Nielsen Ratings Scandal Confirms This Site's Previous Claims That The System Is Not Accurate."
The initial report on "Empire" read, "Per Nielsen Metered Market Data, Wednesday’s episode drew an 8.2 overnight household rating. While down from the previous week’s 8.5, the number still ranked as broadcast television’s best Wednesday night." Then the next day, Murdoch fraudulently had 400,000 non-existent viewers falsely added to the ratings for "Empire" due to the industry scandal on the show's massive decline and angry advertisers taking their money elsewhere.
Hollywood simply is not thinking any more. Gone are the times when people actually came up with original items in Hollywood. The financially declining Hollywood industry is now under the control of incompetent, idiotic, ignorant thieves stealing everything in sight. Hollywood lost its edge and sees criminal copyright infringement and copyright infringement as the answer to its problem. However, if they'd hire people with talent, instead of deranged, depraved thieves in Hollywood cults such as Kabbalah and Scientology, these things wouldn't be happening.
Ratings: FOX’s “Empire” Rises, Repeats as Wednesday’s #1 Show (Updated)
Wednesday’s episode drew a 4.8 adults 18-49 rating with 12.281 million viewers. The numbers narrowly top the 4.7 and 12.223 million marks posted by last week’s broadcast. “Empire,” predictably, ranked as television’s top-rated and most-watched Wednesday show. Its closest adults 18-49 competition came from ABC’s “Modern Family” (2.7). Its closest viewership competition came from CBS’ “Survivor” (9.103 million).
