  • Max sucks

    go away max you troll!

  • Max

    LOL @ AMERICAN UN-HORROR STORY a.k.a. – the REVENGE of cable television.

    Presenting a show the network would like you to believe is a hit when it is only mediocre- at best.

    Continue the slide… :)

  • Deny

    @Bill and @Robert

    Couldn’t you just ban Max from the site somehow? He really irritates me! I would really appreciate it.

  • Max

    Actually, scratch that. I just watched an episode and I’m addicted!!! I LOVE AHS!!!! Ignore everything I ever say after this comment! :)

  • Justin

    Surprised by the low premiere of Top Chef – any insights?

  • Dillan

    Sucks AHS isn’t #1, but I’m glad it didn’t drop.

  • Max

    *NOTE* Max sucks and the Max above Justin’s comment is not me.

    Also- banning me for what Deny? Speaking my mind? I am not insulting any other posters or participating in sock puppetry.

  • Max

    AHS is so amazing. I only make fun of it because I love it.

  • Michael

    I’m probably in the minority, but I simply don’t care for AHS this season. The first season was so good!

  • Max

    NOTE: THE COMMENT ABOVE IS NOT ME!!!! DON’T LISTEN TO HIM. I LOVE AHS WITH ALL MY HEART. PLEASE IGNORE THE COMMENT ABOVE! EVAN PETERS FOR EMMY 2013!!!!

  • Max

    @Michael

    You aren’t in the minority. People all over the net are saying the show is garbage this season. Terrible plots, horrid writing, jarring editing, and a complete and utter mess.

    The ratings reflect that as well. FX knows this show isn’t a keeper. Don’t expect a third season.

  • Max

    HE’S AT IT AGAIN ^^^ NOT ME! ZACHARY QUINTO GOLDEN GLOBE 2013!!!

  • Max

    Just wanted to say that AHS is a juggernaut in the ratings. Loving it. James Cromwell SAG Award!!!

  • r0ckmypants

    The Top Chef premiere BOMBED. It can be excused partially because it wasn’t a real episode (it showed 21 chefs “auditioning” to get to the actual competition), but it was advertised as the premiere… I guess the weakness of last season, the over-saturation of cooking competition shows, and a competitive timeslot got the better of it.

  • The Real Max

    ^^^ I’m super serial guys… I’m the real MAx.

    This show has to be cancelled, it just has to. A 1.5 rating is a HUGE disappointment. All those nominations don’t me sh*t if it can’t beat Sons of Anarchy each week…. bla bla bla.

  • silvit

    I’m losing faith in humanity once again: why duck dynasty why? :cry:

  • Flarikker

    Ever notice that 6 out of 7 top cable shows were on between 10 and 11pm. What does that say about the networks future at that time slot?

    Also a shout out to Storage Wars Texas…numbers keep rising. The 9:30 episode (cat fight) had me laughing in stitches.

  • LT

    WTH is going on here? Weird………

  • Bee

    WTF. how did duck dyansty go from 0.8 or whatever to 1.8 in one week!? AHS was awesome as always. glad it didn’t fall.

    and lol it is definitely a minority that isn’t on board with AHS this season. too bad for them cus it’s great. but they’re still hung up on the first season’s stories, which were wrapped up. but most love it so i’m hoping it goes back up.

  • Jared

    This season AHS has been so over the top and campy with its characters and story..and I LOVE every minute of it.
