If you frequent FX’s late night programming block, you’ve probably encountered promos for their latest, American Horror Story, peppered into reruns of It’s Always Sunny and Wilfred. The weird, off-putting commercials that feature a man on fire, a sexy French maid and a gimp in full leather indicate the new series looks like a cross between The Shining and The Adam’s Family with a little Tarantino quirk thrown in and there’s no way in hell anybody with a cable package should miss it.
Can we all just agree that FX is the best channel on television? Their comedy stable is top-notch and they really cover every base having seen success with past dramas like The Shield, Nip/Tuck and Rescue Me. FX pretty much owns me at this point with shows like American Horror Story being the reason why.
American Horror Story premieres Wednesday, October 5th at 10PM on FX. For additional details, visit the show’s official Facebook.
