    Bring back AHS!

  • JFC

    This is most likely not a good idea!

  • James

    Yea, maybe not a good idea because it comes on so late. Probably will mean less people to catch the encore.

  • Shepherd

    You mean it will run for 97 min, or that they’re airing it commercial free. Grammar, it’s your friend.

  • Michael

    I’m gonna be watching anyways, but wow, that isn’t a great idea…

    SOA didn’t have many problems maintaining its audience. 11 pm repeats on USA do the same as 10 pm repeats, so people still check out the network after 11.

  • Dan S

    I always DVR these late night shows regardless of running time. I’m guessing it’s with commercials but will definitely check it out.

  • Shepherd

    lol, it obviously has commercials or they wouldn’t make any money. Not to mention the fact that they’d be touting lack of, or even limited commercials like there was no tomorrow. My guess is that the show will be 66min long, +/- 2 min.

  • Greg

    FX drama pilots are always longer than average. It probably has 70 minutes, give or take.
