Last week American Horror Story: Coven premiered with a strong 3.0 adults 18-49 rating, a record high for American Horror Story. Will those numbers maintain in week two, or will the show's performance decline like American Horror Story: Asylum did?  This season seems to be well received by most fans, and, according to trendspotters this is the TV Year of the Witch. (Sorry Secret Circle fans, You were ahead of your time!)  So how do you think the show will do tonight? Make your prediction then discuss your reasoning in the comments.

  • Dante

    It will drop like a stone.

    <2.3 for sure.

  • Mitchell

    You know that Secret Circle fans still aren’t over being cancelled, right? Stop riling up the poor things, Sara! They’ve suffered enough!

  • queeneeuq

    Yes :-)

  • Kevin

    Luckily for us, The Secret Circle was terrible to watch. So many bad actors all put together in a bad show. (Sorry, Kevin Williamson. This was your only failure.) Glad it’s gone.

    I expect a 2.5 at the lowest.

  • Jon

    Lets have a vote how much of a laughing stock can Dante get :-)

  • Chicco

    Asylum premiere was way better and Asylum was amazing anyway and i dont expect this season to match it so i think it will decline reaching 2.5 ot something


    I think it should stay around 2.9-3.0

  • Dan S

    I say steady & voted 2.9-3.0 but not 2.3 as Dante hopes for. It’s definitely edgy & very disturbing hence the restrictive MA rating it carries.

  • DenverDean

    The REAL poll should be whether Ironside breaks below 1.0! LOL

  • cimmer

    Oh yeah it will do well, I’m still betting for greater than 3 – Kathy Bates, Jessica Lange and Angela Bassett doing the b*tchy witch thing, you bet (Sarah Paulson’s not bad either). I know it’s a little CW with the girl’s school for witches but I’m guessing those three ladies alone are going to keep bringing the viewers back.

  • Jared

    2.6 to 2.7 is what I’m thinking, but I went with the former.

  • Wright

    2.5. AHS is overhyped.

  • JR35

    A drop-off is likely; will go with 2.7-2.8.

  • NBC Fan


  • PurpleDrazi

    I think it will drop a bit but stay in the high 2s. This season has enough pop culture buzz to keep people tuning in.

  • RJ

    American Horror Story always drops in week two. I’d say between a 2.1 and 2.4.

  • buttondiet

    What show doesn’t drop in week two? I’m gonna guess 2.5 at the very lowest, depends how many people tuned in just because everyone was talking about it and how many are real fans of the show.

  • EatMorePez

    Hey Dante,

    Remember last week when you angrily predicted it would get less than a 1.0? Good times!

  • Sierra

    2.3 at most

  • Dave

    2.9. LOVE this show.
