From “Nip Tuck” to “Sons of Anarchy,” FX has had its share of popular dramas over the years — but none quite as big as “American Horror Story.”
The premiere of the anthology miniseries’ fourth installment has become the most-watched telecast in network history, FX announced on Monday. And as a reward, the net has ordered a 13-episode fifth season of Ryan Murphy’s award-winning show for next fall.
With three days of DVR playback included, last Wednesday’s series premiere of “American Horror Story: Freak Show” surged to all-time highs in total viewers (10 million), adults 18-49 (6.54 million) and adults 18-34 (4.08 million). VIA
