American Horror Story: Coven premiere scores 5.5 million viewers!

So apparently all of the crazy as hell promos we've been seeing for the last two months have really paid off as FX's "American Horror Story: Coven" sees its premiere break the series' record. The show, which hit small screens everywhere on Wednesday night was seen by 5.5 million viewers, up 44 percent from last year's "American Horror Story: Asylum". Now, if you look at the numbers from the show's first encore, it scored a total of 7.8 million viewers. Not too shabby! It's great news seeing horror doing so damn well on TV and hopefully it opens even more doors in the future.

Looking forward to the next episode already? Here's what it's about:

Fiona (Jessica Lange) helps Zoe (Taissa Farmiga) and Madison (Emma Roberts) deal with a horrible tragedy. Meanwhile, Delphine LaLaurie (Kathy Bates) struggles to adjust to modern life. Cordelia (Sarah Paulson) faces a dark decision about her family. Written by Tim Minear and directed by Michael Rymer.
