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

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. Millions have dared to peek out from behind their fingers, making hits out of The Walking Dead and True Blood. Even when Nip/Tuck dipped its scalpels into overt horror -- terrorizing us with sadistic serial killer The Carver -- it drew record numbers to FX.

But do viewers have the stomach for a haunted house dreamed up by Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk, who gave us both Glee and Nip/Tuck? read more

Heroes Preview: Dana Davis' Monica Is One Cool (Copy)cat!

Yes, some of the many (many) Heroes newbies aren't quite yet dazzling us with their different-ness. But Dana Davis' Monica, introduced last week, perhaps boasts one of the coolest powers of the season: By merely witnessing an actor or talent, she can mimic it near-instantly. TVGuide.com invited the alumna of ABC's tragically truncated The Nine to preview what's to come for her plucky New Orleans heroine. TVGuide.com: Having done the short-lived The Nine and Point Pleasant, were you nervous about joining an established hit/phenomenon like Heroes? Davis: Yes, I was!

Sorkin's mighty pen, and a cast that read more

Pleasant Dreams for Prison Break Exec

A year ago, the TV landscape warmly welcomed two little shows entitled Lost and Desperate Housewives. The insta-success of those newbies — one about supernatural goings-on, the other about suburbia's secrets — appeared to portend the success of a Fox offering that boasted both. Point Pleasant, starring dewy Elisabeth Harnois as Satan's daughter and Grant Show as the Dark Prince's sinfully handsome henchman, debuted amid much buzz, only to be bedeviled by low numbers and, thus, a truncated run. Now, that first season, including a making-of doc and five never-aired episodes, is out on DVD. Series creator Marti Noxon read more

Premise: Eerie events plague an East Coast beach town after the Devil's daughter washes ashore in this occult-tinged serial, which wants to be a hybrid of `The O.C.' and `The Omen.' Brought in to replace the sinking `North Shore,' the mix of sex and scares generated similarly weak ratings and lasted less than a season.
