Part 1 of the two-part Halloween episode of FX’s American Horror Story drew 2.2 million viewers in adults 18-49 in Live+Same Day, up 16% from last week and a series high, surpassing the series premiere, which posted 2.0 million in Live+Same Day. AHS was helped by its lead-in last night, the broadcast premiere of Twilight, which delivered 1.5 million 18-49 viewers. It was the second biggest lead-in for AHS behind the Transformers broadcast debut (2 million), which preceded the series premiere. AHS became FX’s second series whose fourth episode eclipsed the premiere, along with co-creator Ryan Murphy’s previous series for the network, Nip/Tuck.
