If you're a fan of riveting television, chances are you're watching FOX's hit series "Empire."

The show, which averages around 15 million viewers per episode, is quickly becoming one of TV's most talked-about programs — and for good reason. With a cast led by Terence Howard and Taraji P. Henson, "Empire" follows the thrilling story of hip-hop record company Empire Entertainment and the drama-filled family that runs it. 

"I read the script, I knew it was amazing," said Henson, who portrays Cookie Lyon. "I knew that if it was handled properly, it would change the face of television."

Grace Gealey, who plays Cookie's rival Anika, claimed that even she is surprised at where the show is headed. 

"In the finale, everybody goes berserk," she said. "Everyone."
