Hundreds join FOX 5 for 'Empire' Season 2 premiere party

Pope Francis wasn't the only one creating some buzz in Washington D.C. Wednesday night. Hundreds of people joined FOX 5 for the Season 2 premiere party at the Howard Theatre.

FOX 5's Tony Perkins, Shawn Yancy, Allison Seymour, Tucker Barnes, Kevin McCarthy and DC radio legend Donnie Simpson were all there for the highly anticipated first episode of the new season.

And what a show it was. It was a star-studded affair that included cameo appearance by Chris Rock, Marisa Tomei and Al Sharpton.

"It was electric," said Simpson. "It really was and the show delivered."
