empireFox has to be regretting that it ordered only 12 episodes of “Empire,” because the impressive drama is still growing eight episodes into its run.

It hit another series high last night, posting a 5.3 adults 18-49 rating, according to Nielsen overnights, up a tenth from last week.

“Empire” became the highest-rated regularly scheduled drama on broadcast since a September 2010 episode of “Grey’s Anatomy.”

It has increased 39 percent since its premiere, growing more than any other broadcast drama since “House” in 2004, though that show was helped immensely by being moved behind “American Idol” at midseason.

“Empire” also posted another series high in total viewers, 13.8 million, up from 13 million last week.
