Empire fans are rejoicing at its return on Wed., Sept. 23 on FOX. But, NBC’s The Tonight Show has released “Jimpire” a hilarious spoof of the hit show.
It features Jimmy Fallon as Luscious Lyon, and his announcer Steve Higgins as a “Cookie” wannabe. The show’s stars Taraji P. Henson and Terrence Howard even make guest starring appearances.
