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.

    maybe a 2.9, i haven’t seen one person that watched the first week say they weren’t interested in the 2nd.

  • Scandalicious

    I think it has some pretty solid positive buzz going for it. I think it will end up getting a 2.7

  • Bee

    don’t the majority of these cable shows that open big fall big in their second week?

    2.7+ would be amazing, but i’ll guess 2.2-2.4.

    Hi Max, I mean Dante!!!!!!!!!!!! Good to see you back again, I enjoy your crazy talk!!!!

    2.5. It feels like one of those shows with a decent drop even if the premiere was well-received. Well I guess that’s almost every show – the drop part.

  • Igwell

    It could be up. It’s not like the networks are putting up a fight at 10pm.

  • eelna

    Make tomorrow predictions table for reign, pls.

    I predict a big drop to 2.1-2.3, which is still very healthy. Lots of people tuned in from curiosity last week, but a lot of scenes last week were hard to take. Black people being enslaved and tortured in an attic? Gang rape? Yikes. Nauseating, gross, yet too transparently trying to be campy to be “so bad it’s good.” And not nearly as promising as season 2, so far. I don’t think there is huge Walking Dead-style mass appeal in this ultra-batsh#t-crazy stuff, but even if it settles at around 1.5-2.0, it’ll still be one of the biggest dramas on cable.

    OTOH if it stays near 3.0, that will infuriate Dante and make him look like even more of an immature, frothing-at-the-mouth troll moron than he already is, so I’m all for that! ;)

    Why do people need to say bad things about the secret circle? Quite frankly I don’t care about acting, if the show is interesting I’m a fan and tbh I don’t understand half the people on this site saying TSC had bad acting cause it didn’t. It was cancelled cause of a bias mark pedowitz. Leave TSC alone. THE SECRET CIRCLE WILL FOREVER BE THE BEST WITCH SHOW EVER. Sorry ahs

    I honestly don’t think this is the same Dante from Chicago Fire. He doesn’t post Lmfao every other sentence or give lists of excuses that people will make about why the ratings aren’t good, not that they aren’t good.

    I believe this Dante is actually another troll who goes by the name Dante because enough people hate the real Dante already.

    This way, he can either:

    A) hate on shows he doesn’t like in secret

    Or

    B) stir up even more hatred for Dante.

    Possibly both.

  • John A

    2.5. It will take a big drop but not huge.

  • Hardline_Pro

    @Wright – No it wasn’t.

  • The Nightman Cometh

    it shouldnt drop too much im thinkin 2.7-2.8, its very interesting. the premiere was MUCH better than what Walking Dead put out there.

  • Pepper

    2.9 – the premiere was good enough that I think people will come back for this episode.

  • Mark

    2.9

  • Jagger Dagger

    People who tuned in to the premiere pretty much got what they were expecting and wanting, so not much of a drop.
    2.7

  • CBSviewer

    Best scenario: 2.8
    Worst scenario: 2.4

  • MC
