The American Horror Story: Roanoke premiere is FX's fifth most-watched ever

American Horror Story Roanoke Sarah Paulson

One of my favorite things about American Horror Story season ?6, which premiered last Wednesday, is that people still don't know what to call the season. The mystery continues... AHS: Roanoke? AHS: My Roanoke Nightmare? AHS: Not Really What We Were Picturing? At any rate, what we can all agree on is that we're watching the damn thing.

Although the premiere episode was down slightly in ratings from last season's premire, that hasn't stopped it from being the fifth most watched episode in FX history. No fewer than 8.3 million viewers sat down to be confused by the show's alternative format, just barely being beaten out by two episodes of Sons of Anarchy and the premieres of AHS: Hotel and Freak Show. So far this episode has been more promising than the previous high-rating premieres, so maybe they can get those numbers to stick around thanks to this seasons ineffable quality keeping viewers on their toes.

Lady Gaga, Kathy Bates, Denis O’Hare, Angela Bassett, Sarah Paulson, Finn Wittrock, Wes Bentley, Cheyenne Jackson, Leslie Jordan, Jacob Artist, Cuba Gooding Jr., Lily Rabe, Chaz Bono, Evan Peters, and Matt Bomer also star in American Horror Story: ?6, which airs on FX Wednesdays at 10PM.
