Taraji P. Henson is back, bitches — and from the latest trailer for Empire, the erstwhile Person of Interest star (and Emmy/Oscar nominee) is going to be infinitely quotable in Fox’s new hip-hop drama (premiering Wednesday, Jan. 7 at 9/8c).

Also on the agenda: Furs, cars, guns, music, boxing and a little bit of prayer. (I’ve already set a series recording, ’cause I’m succeptible like that.)

    Taraji is a force of nature. I would prefer Carter were still alive & on POI, but I understand. Is Cookie (albeit very loosely) based on Kimora Lee Simmons – at all? Just getting that same sense and vibe from her. She will be what makes this show worth watching – I can almost guarantee.

    Can’t wait!

    I love Taraji, but I don’t think you could pay me enough to watch that.

  6. Can’t wait! Taraji brings it in all of her roles! She is a force to be reckoned with! Take that CBS-Sony, Nolan and Tassler and every other studio executive who tried to marginalize her!

    I like Taraji P. Henson, not sure if it will be a hit or miss. Overall good luck to her on this show.

    No doubt this show has great actors and the action and music should be great, but we will see how well it does. This is another FOX show that they have put A LOT of money into. It is hard to say a show is garbage before you really see it. FOX really needs to have this show work, they are getting beaten badly this season.

  10. I for one don’t think a Black experience is garbage, its a story if you don’t want to watch its not your cup of tea there’s other shows out here but I’m willing to give it a chance before I start hatin’

    IT WAS OFF THE CHAIN! TARAJI KILT IT!!!! All the acting and music was great. It won’t appeal to everyone; nothing ever does. There are shows I would never watch. Again, Taraji is killin her role as COOKIE!

  13. All the Haters the show was excellent just saying don’t watch there is 500 other channels
