FX president John Landgraf totally called this!
After the initial ratings came in for American Horror Story's series premiere, the FX prez had the following to say about it:
"We’re really thrilled by the premiere ratings performance of American Horror Story. We know that when the Live+7 ratings come in, that of the 13 drama series FX has premiered, AHS will rank at least No. 2 all-time in Adults 18-4 and there is a possibility that it could be our highest ever."
He was right! The Live+7 ratings are in and thanks to people watching the AHS premiere on DVR, the show landed a total of 3.14 million viewers, making it the highest rated series premiere for FX ever!
Very exciting! Between this and the renewal of The Walking Dead, it's become quite clear that Americans are LOVING the horror genre more than ever!
