Lead-in movie, Twilight was very solid, however it fell -22% in P18-49 from last week's stellar Taken (946 vs. 1,208). From there, AHS vaulted +148% (2,350 vs. 946) with W18-49 surging +123% and M18-49, +199%.

Encore Telecast of Note: AHS's first encore repped its most-watched encore telecast to date (1,035/P18-49), outperforming its second most-watched encore by +14% (906, post series premiere on Oct. 5th). For a bit of added perspective to the "stellar-ness" of this delivery ? had this telecast aired in traditional prime (800 - 1100P), it would have ranked as the eighth-ranked program of the night in basic cable.

American Horror Story continues to pace as FX's most watched frosh series ever. With Week 4 of time shifted data added to its season average, AHS is FX's first frosh series to cross the three million P18-49 mark (3,076).
