  • Max

    Piss poor numbers for the AHS finale, as expected.

  • Hubert R. Wentland

    AHS didn’t grow at all :o such an excellent season. a lot about God, Satan, death. second half was so much better than the church-mocking first.

  • GG

    ^ no its not. What are you retarded? Do you sleep here? lmao

  • xoxoxblondie

    Does anyone know How Washington Heights are doing ratings wise?

  • Bryan

    American Horror Story lost its mojo. Well, on to the next one.

  • Ike

    American Horror Story may be completely bonkers and bats**t-insane, but it is still one of the top-rated cable dramas on TV. I’m not sure, is it still in the top three? Top five? Definitely in the top six or seven cable dramas, anyway.

    At first I disliked this show, but now I have accepted its maniacal gonzo go-for-broke lunacy.

  • xoxoxblondie

    Ratings for last night episode of Washington Height?

  • John A

    AHS didnt do great for its finale. Still it beat overhyped Justified.

  • Dillan

    Disappointing numbers for AHS final. Either way, it was a fantastic season!

  • Max

    As I have said since day one, AHS is the REVENGE of cable.

  • Bee

    i think FX needs to keep the show in the fall. breaking it into 2 parts is not a great idea.

    but either way, the show is still a major success. maybe next season’s story will click more than this year’s did. anyway, great finale and great season. can’t wait for next year.

  • THE OLD MAN

    Moonshiners & AHS top two original scripted–as it should be!

  • Michael

    Ryan Murphy mocking Catholicism is getting old! He needs to find another shtick. With that being said, hopefully season 3 of AHS is better!

  • Ryan

    Such an amazing season (better than the first) and finale for AHS. Can’t wait for next season!!!!

  • Joe

    @Max

    Look everybody. Max is on here right away, saying the same thing, for the millionth time in a row. You seriously have no life. Pathetic. Max stares at the computer all day, waiting to post the same comment every week.

  • DenverDean

    CSI:NY has been doing really well lately at 11 and Midnight.

  • silvit

    Ouch for Necessary Roughness!!! It did worse than NCIS, Granted it had to go against the finale of AHS, but it’s still bad.

    As for AHS, it must be noticed that the FX movie preceding it got lousy ratings for being on FX.

  • silvit

    @DenverDean

    CSY:NY is getting the same ratings it was getting last year. And maybe the years before (don’t know since they weren’t published)

  • rob60990

    I don’t know why USA even bothered with Necessary Roughness. It didn’t do that great this past summer.

  • silvit

    @rob

    Hence they ordered only 10 episodes to fill the summer holes. After that, bye bye.
