American Horror StoryScares Up Its Best Ratings Yet

Quote:
Last night's episode was the show's highest-rated yet among the network's target demo of adults under 50. It averaged a 1.7 rating in that category, better than anything else on cable Wednesday and one-tenth of a rating point higher than the show's premiere. Very few highly promoted cable shows demonstrate growth from their first to fourth episodes, and when they do (think AMC's The Walking Dead , Season 1), it's a pretty good sign said series is clicking with viewers. Even more impressive for AHS is how it's doing when data from DVR usage is figured in. FX earlier this week released stats showing that the aforementioned October 3 debut rose 54 percent when seven days of recorded viewing was tallied, making it the No. 1 series premiere for the network in the DVR era.

What I think is happening is the gestation of the baby is being accelerated. Thus, it's now able to kick when it should still be a tiny embryo. I think the nurse fainted because she was shocked at how big it is - and how impossible that should be. Of course, it could have a tail & horns too.

That will be the point where the next episode picks up, or they'll just cut to the aftermath.

Based on the "rules" that we think we know so far in terms of who gets trapped in the house when they die and who doesn't, will Adalade not be coming back as a ghost because she was killed out in the street? Is she off the show for good now?

It also seemed to me that they got the call from the daughter right after the nurse started napping, and that became the priority after the last home invasion.

1st born takes precedence over not born.

I wasn't buying that Quinto (Spock/Sylar) as a gay person. It seemed so fake in his acting came across as acting instead of believable. Other then that, awesome episode. Interesting about the whole get her back to the 'Lawn" after the accident. Hmmmmm.

I think she may be gone or at least "free" since she died.before she was brought back to the property. If I had to.guess this isn't the last we've seen of.her

Um, I think Zack Quinto was probably being pretty authentic in those scenes.

He came out this week, possibly due to the timing of this episode going to air. His "official" reason was another recent incident involving a gay kid's suicide due to bullying.

That's actually pretty funny considering he recently announced that he is indeed gay

I guess even if you're gay it's hard to pull of gay . Tough business they have there wonder what would have made him more "authentic" lol. At least to me I didn't see anything wrong with his performance.

I didn't have a problem with his performance, either. He seemed appropriately "fussy".

Yes, I've seen enough interviews with him to know he's not nearly that flamboyant in real life. He was embellishing the role for effect, probably having a lot of fun with it since it's totally different from the roles he normally plays.

John Berryman(Torchwood) was supposedly angry after being turned down for Will and Grace for not being gay enough."They gave the role to a straight guy!" was his comment. (Berryman is gay)

John's last name is Barrowman

"Being" gay and "acting" gay are two different things.

I know a lot of straight people who appear gay and a lot of gay people who appear straight, so there aren't very many gay people who actually appear gay in real life which is the reason why many skilled actors can actually act gay better than many lesser skilled gay actors who have to try to act more gay than they actually are in real life.

This makes absolutely no sense.

FX has officially ordered a second season of American Horror Storyno surprise here, considering that the Ryan Murphy/Brad Falchuk series is on its way to having FX's highest-rated first season of any show in the history of the network. The renewal calls for another 13 episodes of the showthough FX president John Landgraf sounds optimistic for more, saying that AHS will be scaring FX's viewers to death for many years to come. Of course, both the network and the show's creators are keeping mum on whether it will follow through with its original plans to kill off its current cast and bring in a fresh family with each new season.

Great news for my favorite show on TV. I'm so excited for the second half of the Halloween episode this week, it's going to be crazy.

I know, that is what makes it worse, he is and he couldn't even pull it off in those scenes. Sad because I loved him in Heroes and Star Trek.

I think some of us might be overthinking it here. Quinto was playing the part of a flamboyant gay guy, which makes an interesting contrast with the more straight-acting gay guy. It was probably a directorial choice; could have gone the other way. Maybe they tried it the other way and Quinto gave a better performance as the flamer so that's the way they filmed it. It's also the bigger role, and Quinto's the bigger star, and that's the way those things usually work. I don't even recognize the other guy.

Whether or not his performance is more convincing because of this new-found knowledge of his personal life is irrelevant. He's a good actor; he gave a convincing performance based on the requirements of the script.

Awesome how Homeland and AHS were renewed. Great television.
post #172 of 486
Just found this show. It's now on the DVR can't wait to see how it develops!
post #173 of 486
While I've like this show I've found it a little confusing and disjointed. The last episode has really brought it together. I happy its been renewed and can't wait for the next episode.

You're right about that. It's OK, I read the thread and people help explain. ha
New episode in 1 hour!! (I gotta watch it on the 10:00 replay)

AHS and 'Sunny are my most highly anticipated shows during the work week. I think.
Edit: Both on FX

I was disappointed this week because I thought it was too straightforward!

Normally every week ends with me going "what the f ..." but this week it was too easy to follow what was happening and lacked the weirdness of previous weeks. It all seemed uncharacteristically sensible.

I thought the microwave scene was initially shocking but then I thought it was funny. I was disappointed the show wimped out and didn't break the "no children or dogs" rule.
post #176 of 486
Never found it confusing, but then again I did watch the first 3 episodes back to back.
post #177 of 486
It's confusing. It's disturbing. And I LIKE IT!
post #178 of 486
So one thing we learned on this episode is that it appears ALL of the ghosts of the people who died in the house are trapped on the grounds. Originally it seemed like only those buried there were stuck at the house, but seeing all of the ghosts walking back into the house the morning after Halloween seems to indicate otherwise. I wonder why the gay couple and the doctor's wife waited until Halloween to show themselves, though...

Also, it seems strange to me that ghosts can apparently harm each other. Otherwise why/how would the group of high school ghosts be able to threaten Nate? It seems he has no memory of his "living" life, or at least the things he did.

There was a point about 35 minutes in where it looked like all kinds of crazy stuff was going to happen, but then all the stories just died down. The "Home Invasion" episode was definitely more extreme.

Killing a fluffy little dog would bring the worst kind of attention to this show from the animal rights activists, and would only drive audience members away.

Well, I can see him having dual or even multiple personalities. Maybe the "nice kid Tate" doesn't know what "evil Tate" did. Maybe another personality is him as The Gimp (we have already seen him in the suit). There is also the chance that he was possessed by the spirit of another when he did the killing.
