Is it 9 pm EST yet? I do not know how I am going to make myself wait until the second installment of Fox's sexual chocolate soap opera, Empire, tonight!

This week, Cookie (Taraji P. Henson) isn't trying to hear it when she learns Lucious (Terrence Howard) is refusing to let Jamal (Jussie Smollett) perform at the opening of his new nightclub — especially since Hakeem (Bryshere Gray) is on the roster. Check out a clip of Cookie reading A&R exec Anika (Grace Gealey) and Lucious after the jump!

Lucious Lyon is such a homophobic douchebag. Would it kill him to love all three of his sons equally, in spite of Jamal's sexuality and eldest son Andre's (All My Children's Trai Byers) lack of musical talent? It might not kill him, but it would definitely make this game-changing soap less juicy and true to life!

Oh and Miss "Halle Berry" needs to keep her tired mouth closed. Go get 'em, Cookie! Watch a few more teaser clips below and don't forget to tune in tonight at 9 pm EST on Fox.
