I was certainly excited to see the Asylum open last night, and obviously others agree!
- The Wednesday night premiere of American Horror Story: Asylum, the second chapter in Ryan Murphy’s spookfest, delivered insanely good numbers for FX — a total audience of 3.85 million viewers, with 2.8 mil landing in the 18-49 demo (based on fast nationals). Those tallies best any episode of the original American Horror Story miniseries, and mark gains of 20 and 40 percent from AHS‘ year-ago launch. Asylum currently stands as the 10 o’clock hour’s No. 2 program in 18-49, behind CBS’ CSI and ahead of ABC’s Nashville and NBC’s Chicago Fire, and trounced all time slot rivals in the Adults 18-34 and Women 18-34 demos.
We'll have the full numbers soon, but I'm sure the site had a spike, too. We had an awesome chat while watching together. Be sure to join us next week for more chat, more realtime recapping, and more special features in store.
"What you put out into the world comes back to you." And clearly, the AHS staff has put out something great; now it's your turn!
