    I think the subject matter will turn viewers off where AHS is concerned. I didn’t stick with it since I found it very confusing.

  • iMember

    I thought Max was banned from here?

  • Mark

    AHS was better this week than last week! Still not as great as season 1, but it can get there!

  • Mark

    Then why do you watch it Max?

    Get outta here.

    Ban him PLEASE!

  • Joe

    Max is just desperate for attention. He has no life.

  • Desperate Houseboy

    Too bad for AHS it was such a great episode.

  • silvit

    Unrelated, but since we are talking about Wednesday cable ratings, I put it here: Dallas has been canceled in my country after 2 (in reality 4, since they aired 2 episodes back to back) episodes due to extremely low ratings. :D

  • Dave

    Can’t people just stop reacting to Max? Haven’t seen a troll as apparent here in a long time, call it Bondoel 2.0; it may even be possible that he is actually a fan of AHS and enjoys provoking so much defense and positive statements for the show.

  • KS

    There seems to be a few AHS fans here. So, guys whom do you think bloody face is and do you think aliens are real or are they some creatures created by some genetic manipulations by the doctor.

  • Joao

    that AHS episode was perfect!

  • Jonny C…. formerly Jon

    @ Mark

    He’s banned…but they’re been copycats ( in fact this one is the first to actually respond…so yea)

    So just ignore the troll that doesnt know about the ratings system.

    Though I feel like sometimes this might someone on staff messing with us cuz isn’t it wierd that Max/ Intensity/ whatever he was before that… is always the first post when it comes to Revenge and AHS?

    @Amanda…Any comments?

  • Mike

    why is Life After Top Chef never on here???

  • Jon

    How people can watch Family Guy repeats(Or even originals) over South Park is beyond me. Guess American’s like dumbed down shows. Actually, I know they do.

  • JR

    Was hoping for a little more for AHS, but when it’s the top-rated show of the night, can’t really complain too much.

  • Katie

    Someone commented saying the first episode of American Horror Story was bad and most people hated it. I didn’t hate it, neither did other people that I’ve talked to. The second episode was VERY good and pretty damn creepy. People don’t understand that lot of times first episodes aren’t the best because if it’s a new show then you get getting to know the characters so there isn’t going be a ton of stuff happening. Why give up after just one episode? Those people that did missed out.

  • Richard Steven Hack

    Watched episode 3 of Cinemax’s Hunted last night (late to the game, missed it last week). Episode four on tonight, I believe.

    They finally got Indira Varma completely on the show – starting with a nice sex scene to boot! Made my night! :-) She plays an MI6 officer tasking one of Byzantium’s operatives as a mole (and screwing him on the side.)

    This show is pretty good for a spy show. Melissa George gets to beat people up in every episode. For a private intelligence agency, though, Byzantium sure kills a lot of people.

  • Dan

    AHS is so dark and twisted. What a fantastic show!!!

  • Serial Rocker

    Never really understood the mentality of the “I love show ‘A’ so I must piss all over the fans of show ‘B’ even though it in no way makes any difference to the success or failure of the show I like!”.

    I mean, to use the shows already mentioned as examples, I love American Horror Story, The Walking Dead, Alphas and I adore Justified but I can’t stand shows like Dallas. Just a personal taste thing. Even so, I feel absolutely no need to slag the show or its fans off in some wasted effort to make me look special. Do the likes of Max and the other trolls really have nothing better to do? It amazes me how they have the free time in their lives to waste on stuff they don’t like.

  • Max

    @Jonny C…. formerly Jon

    No, I was not banned because I am the original Max and my ISP has been checked and it did not match any of the “Max” impersonators or this Intensity person you folks keep claiming I am/used to be.

  • Tony

    @Max

    You’re an idiot. It’s a great show.
