  • Skylar James

    AHS is amazing this season

  • THE OLD MAN

    The last two ep’s of AHS have been outstanding! Double digit Emmy nods again this year. Really glad the ratings are this good. Looking forward to S03.

  • silvit

    @Michael

    You don’t know Ryan Murphy then. That’s the trademark of his shows.

  • Mark

    AHS has been really good ever since the episode where Bloody Face was revealed. It’s been feeling like season 1 since then. The season as a whole is not as good as season 1, maybe season 3 will be better.

  • THE OLD MAN

    @ rob60990

    Didn’t know Whitney Cummings had a talk show. Like where & when?

  • James

    Damn. AHS might not recover after so many people missed it on Thanksgiving Eve. They need to take that Wednesday off next year.

  • Silvio

    @THE OLD MAN

    Whitney’s talk show premiered yesterday at E!

    “Love You, Mean It With Whitney Cummings” premieres at 10:30pm ET/PT on Wednesday, November 28th following “The Soup” only on E!

  • THE OLD MAN

    @ Silvio

    Thanks!

  • RJ

    Max,

    It didn’t bounce back? Too bad it was up three-four tenths from last week. Do some fact-checking next time!

  • Oliver

    I wouldn’t expect LYMIWWC to be in the top 100 given neither The Soup nor Chelsea Lately makes the list.

    That said, I do wonder how it did…

  • mike

    I wish the challenge was higher that episode was crazy.I tthink MTV may have two female stars in Marie and Nany to take down JEK.

  • smgpugfaw

    Add me to the list that thinks this season of AHS pales in comparison to the last. Not even close.

  • Daw Johnson

    The comments here bug me every week.

    Since when was American Horror Story season one “good.” There were a few moments (around episodes 3-5) where the show had some promise, but it was ultimately a trainwreck show–something you watched for laughs. Connie Britton and Dylan McDermott, as good as they have been in other things, did not fit the campy nature of the show at all.

    The show has a lot going on right now, but it’s simultaneously so much more focused (it seems like they actually have a story to tell–by the last few episodes last year, any semblance of a story was gone), and the tone is so much more consistent.

  • BxActor

    AHS yeah not shocked …. Last night was special lol

  • rob60990

    “It didn’t bounce back? Too bad it was up three-four tenths from last week. Do some fact-checking next time!”

    You expect Max to check facts before he makes himself look stupid? Max makes himself look like a fool every week so don’t expect that to change. :D

  • sam

    any word on The Soup and Love You, Mean It?

  • r0ckmypants

    This season of AHS is 90% pointless. Meaningless new characters every week, no motivation behind any characters’ actions, dozens of plotlines disappearing and reappearing without any resolution… it’s bad. I actually laughed out loud at Lana’s scenes last night, that’s how ridiculous her story is.

    The acting is the only reason so many are blind to the show’s shortcomings. Jessica Lange can make anything work, and the supporting cast is all universally strong. But that doesn’t make up for the fact that the show doesn’t make sense or have a focus.

    And this time last year, AHS was at a 1.7. That decline in ratings is definitely indicative of the decline in quality.

    Anyway, rant over… I’m also disappointed that Love You, Mean It didn’t crack the list. Whitney yelled too much, but it was really funny.

  • Joe

    @ Michael is a Ryan Murphy show so it will get worse as the show progress althought it getting a whole new cast and storyline every season could help for the show to flop more slowly.

  • Hugh

    Wow its the new Pawn Stars.

  • Nick

    Nice for Hot in Cleveland. I would’ve liked 0.5, but 0.4 is OK.
