Following its Season 6 premiere last week, “American Horror Story” experienced a major dip on FX from a 2.8 to a 1.8 rating in adults 18-49. The series still managed to grab the top spot of the night.

Episode 2 of “AHS: Hotel” also had a sizable decline last season, falling from a 3.0 for its premiere to 2.2 the following week. That’s smaller, however, than the drop for “Roanoke.”

Meanwhile, the season 2 finale of USA’s “Mr. Robot” ticked up one tenth from its previous 0.3 streak to a 0.4 for the network. OWN’s “Queen Sugar” also experienced its lowest rating to date, falling two tenths from a 0.6 to a 0.4.
