CSI: Cyber Ratings Drop After Bow Wow Says Empire Is Stereotypical Of Blacks

Yesterday, we reported rapper and perpetual hater Bow Wow recently signed onto star in CBS’s hit “CSI” spin-off, ‘CSI: Cyber.’

The rapper now admits that FOX’s “Empire” is a blockbuster series but reveals that he would have turned down the role because it’s filled with stereotypes about Black people. Shad tells Global 14

“When we were still filming Cyber episodes, Empire‘s first episode premiered. Fans were saying, ‘Man, you should have been on the show.’ But we all don’t rap or play basketball. We can do so many things. There are young African-Americans who are intelligent enough to work at the FBI. That’s what’s so bright. Hopefully, I can help start a new wave of young black actors who don’t want to stereotype themselves.“

Well, according to ratings site TVLine CSI: Cyber ratings dropped 17 and three tenths percent this week pulling in a total of 8 million viewers.

Fox’s Empire wrapped its supernova-like freshman season on the highest of notes, averaging 16.7 million total viewers and a 6.5 demo rating across its two-hour run (per finals) — rising 12 percent to easily deliver season highs.
Hour-by-hour, the show did 15.8 mil/6.1, and then 17.6 mil/6.9.

TVLine readers gave the twisty-turny, sexy, deadly season-ender an average grade of “A-.”

You might want to STFU Shad because your new show isn’t looking too good out here!
