Forget eye of newt. With a record-breaking premiere audience of 5.5 million viewers, Coven, the witch-centric third season of FX's American Horror Story franchise, is casting a spell on viewers. And no wonder: It's campy, creepy and "the cast is completely off the hook," says executive producer Tim Minear, who sums up the show's ability to attract major...
American Horror Story: Coven has reunited dynamic duo Taissa Farmiga and Evan Peters for a love story that's even weirder than Season 1's ghost-on-ghost romance.

The CW's beyond-generic The Tomorrow People feels like yesterday's news — and not just because it's adapted from a '70s British sci-fi series. Turns out this isn't as durable a property as Doctor Who, or maybe the reboot is just that bad. Cut from the same angsty pattern of so many CW supernatural shows, Tomorrow (Wednesday, 9/8c) offers up a duller than usual gaggle of pretty, overripe CW teens-in-their-20s with superpowers. The "Tomorrow People," we learn in an endless prattle of exposition, are a cluster of genetic mutations whose special gifts emerge upon adolescence. Forget pimples. This subculture specializes in the "three T's": teleportation, telepathy, telekinesis. They forgot "tired," "tepid" and "too too derivative," which much better describes the experience of meeting these lost kids.
Another year, another version of American Horror Story. This season, Ryan Murphy transplants viewers to New Orleans in Coven.
The anthology series' third chapter is set in present-day New Orleans, where young witches coming of age learn their craft at Miss Robichaux's Academy for Exceptional Young Ladies.
