Sunday’s episode, titled “Omega,” averaged a 1.7 rating in the key 18-49 demographic, down 15 percent from the prior week’s midseason premiere and slightly below its previous all-time demo low of 1.8 last fall.
This week also marked the show’s worst-ever performance in total viewers with 4.54 million people tuned in for Sunday’s episode. That’s down 12 percent from last week and less than the previous low of 4.71 million for the show’s second episode in 2010.

“Today we witnessed an organized law enforcement spectacle that has no place in the American legal system,” read a statement put out on the actor’s behalf following his release from custody Thursday afternoon. “The presumption of innocence, a bedrock in the search for justice, was trampled upon at the expense of Mr. Smollett and notably, on the eve of a Mayoral election. Mr. Smollett is a young man of impeccable character and integrity who fiercely and solemnly maintains his innocence and feels betrayed by a system that apparently wants to skip due process and proceed directly to sentencing.”
Smollett was released from Chicago police custody after posting bail and surrendering his passport during a bond hearing in front of State of Illinois Circuit Court of Cook County Judge John Fitzgerald Lyke Jr.
Smollett was arrested early Thursday on a felony charge of filing a false police report. He was released after a court hearing on $100,000 bond, walking past a scrum of cameras as he returned to the set of “Empire.”

Veteran sound mixer Greg P. Russell earned his first nomination for 1989’s “Black Rain.” He almost earned a 17th nomination, for 2016’s “13 Hours,” but his nomination was rescinded after he “violated Academy campaign regulations that prohibit telephone lobbying.”

The Matthew Shepard Foundation, which helped expand the federal hate crime law to include offenses motivated by sexual orientation, gender or disability, said 410 hate crimes have been documented since Smollett’s case came to light.
“While we are absolutely dismayed that somebody with such a high profile would fake a hate crime, we want to remind everyone that false reports are the exception, not the rule,” the foundation tweeted Thursday.
