Will American Horror Story Be a Hit for FX? A Look at the Recent History of Horror on TV

The Walking Dead, True Blood, Supernatural

Historically, horror hasn't scared up a great track record on TV. Supernatural series? Yes. Terrifying ones? No. The good news for FX, which on Wednesday launches American Horror Story, is that audiences seem to be growing braver.

But "creepy" doesn't begin to tell it. There is a barrel of bizarre going on here, and it's all delivered fast and furious in the first episode (premiering Wednesday, Oct. 5 at 10/9c) when the Harmons meet their peculiar neighbors. They include bigoted Southern mother next door Constance read more
