Empire Duo Get Their Own Variety Special

FOX’s “Empire” goes on hiatus after the airing of its December 2nd midseason finale, but that hasn’t stopped its two stars from doing something unexpected for the network – a variety special.

“Taraji and Terrence’s White Hot Holidays” will feature series stars Taraji P. Henson and Terrence Howard hosting a holiday hourlong special. Mary J. Blige, John Legend and Jamie Foxx and others will serve as special guests for the one-off in which the pair will also perform a special duet.

‘White Hot’ is scheduled to air in the show’s time slot the week after the finale – December 9th. Though “Empire” has slipped a bit in the ratings, it remains FOX’s most robust new performer in sometime with Howard and Henson’s characters essentially becoming the new faces of the network.
