'American Horror Story' renewed for fifth season after setting ratings record

American Horror Story Freak Show


It’s very good to be a Freak: FX has just announced that the premiere of American Horror Story: Freak Show has set a record as the most-watched TV episode in the network’s history(!), with 10 million total viewers (6.54 million 18-49), according to Live+3 numbers. That bests last year’s Coven premiere of 7.27 million by 38 percent.

Based on the success of AHS: Freak Show, the network also announced that it will deliver a fifth installment of American Horror Story in October 2015. Co-creator Ryan Murphy told EW last week that he’s already planted clues for next year in the first two episodes of this current season.
