P18-49 advanced +13% (2,350 vs. 2,073) to rep its largest weekly percentage gain to date [eclipsing a +12% gain from Week 2 to 3]. Increases were driven by women (+9% to +22%).

In W18-49, American Horror Story @ #1 (1,391) outperformed #2-ranked Psych by more than triple (668).

AHS Median Age/Audience Composition

· Median Age: Week 7 was 31, same as last week and two years younger than its norm (33).

· Gender Skew: percent (%) male/female split was 42/58 ? its most female-skewing telecast yet (47/53 norm).

Vs. Lead-in

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%.

American Horror Story and Twilight ranked FX #1 or #2 for the night virtually across the board: #1 in P/W 18-49, P/W 18-34, and W25-54 and #2 in M18-49/18-34.

· In P18-49, FX (1,350) ranked #1 with a robust +38% advantage over #2-ranked TBS (979); +50% over #3-ranked A&E (903); +50% over #4-ranked USA (899).

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).
