  • Dillan

    Really hope AHS doesn’t fall anymore.

  • Matt

    What’s the low for AHS?

  • Seth

    Duck Dynasty is an absolute powerhouse.

  • Brandon

    @ Matt – 1.89 on November 21, 2012.

  • John A

    AHS always goes down alot. But it repeats so well. The 11.15 repeat beat almost every episode of The Americans and The Bridge lol.

  • Jasef

    @Matt & Brandon

    The series premiere was a 1.6, so it’s definitely gone lower than 1.89. smh

  • bagaha

    @Jasef

    1.89 million viewers smartass. smh

  • j

    I said last week I expect AHS to average around a 2, and I stand by that.

    Last season the average was 1.48 (putting aside the ill-advised Thanksgiving ep), and the third episode was a 1.46. So the trajectory seems similar.

  • Jon

    @John A
    I actually think the repeat of AHS beat every airing of Americans and The Bridge :-)
    AHS is doing impressive ratings for FX at 10pm. This season is the best ratings the show has gotten.

  • Don

    It’s funny how John A is making fun of The Americans with a Charmed avatar. Hahahahahaha

  • Patrick Ausgewahlt

    Last year American Horror Story premiered to a 2.2, fell as low as a 1.0 and had a 1.3 for its finale. So if it follows the same path, it will get as low as a 1.4 this year and finale at 1.8 rating.

    It seems like a show that gets a lot of hype in the first few episodes, but then people just lose interest.

  • Hardline_Pro

    Ouch for AHS. It was such a good episode too. :(

  • Samunto

    FX’s shows are debuting massively only to drop the same way in consecutive weeks.
    But wasn’t last night the season finale ‘Duck Dynasty’?!

  • Dochas

    AHS deserved that drop and more. Last night’s episode was horrible, but for Jessica Lange’s emmy reel performance. I think they forgot the show is called American Horror Story, not American Depravity Story. It wasn’t scary, it wasn’t fun. It gave no thrills and chills. Only nausea inducing imagery. Where is the “horror” in that? Ugh.

  • CPG716

    The Live +7 for AMH has been huge the past two weeks.. it seems more people DVR it…. I think the second episode did even better then the first.. both with Live +7.

  • Hardline_Pro

    @Dochas – I can’t tell if you’re trolling or just nit picking.

  • Dochas

    @Hardline_Pro – I don’t troll and stating my issues with last night’s episode is not nit picking. They are my issues, not yours. I don’t expect or even want other’s to agree with me. I don’t need that validation. Also, if you’ve seen me post at all, you know I am a fan of AHS and was very excited for this season. Last night’s episode though was pure disappointment. Thanks, have a nice evening.

  • Zach

    Last night was the season finale for Duck Dynasty; American Horror Story’s ratings will likely raise

  • THE OLD MAN

    Figured AHS would drop some, but I’ll use Baseball for my Fan Excuse & agree that Duck D was the finale, so AHS should gain some ground next week (hopefully)

  • Alan

    Is Duck Dynasty renewed. I’d like FX to schedule Americans for a different time in January because Duck Dynasty hurt it last season. I’m glad DD’s ratings have fallen, it’s for idiots.
