American Horror Story Premieres Tonight on FX

True Blood fans are left waiting for something else to satisfy their need for new “blood”. Perhaps the new show that is premiering today on FX “American Horror Story” will satisfy that need. TV Guide posed that question today in their online article “will American Horror Story be a hit for FX?” Their article also took a look at the recent history of horror on TV. (and yes True Blood was featured) The image above shows 3 images from 3 different horror shows- Walking Dead, True Blood and Supernatural.

Here is an excerpt of their article:

[box] Historically, horror hasn’t scared up a great track record on TV. Supernatural series? Yes. Terrifying ones? No. The good news for FX, which on Wednesday launches American Horror Story, is that audiences seem to be growing braver. Millions have dared to peek out from behind their fingers, making hits out of The Walking Dead and True Blood. Even when Nip/Tuck dipped its scalpels into overt horror — terrorizing us with sadistic serial killer The Carver — it drew record numbers to FX.

But do viewers have the stomach for a haunted house dreamed up by Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk, who gave us both Glee and Nip/Tuck? American Horror Story’s got veteran actors Connie Britton, Dylan McDermott and Jessica Lange, but also a homicidal basement-dwelling creature, angry twin redheads, an enigmatic, er, spirit in a fetish suit, demonic murals, a grotesque burn victim… and that’s just in the first episode.

To gauge the show’s chances, we look back at the last 20 years of horror TV: Dark Shadows revival (1991, NBC), Nightmare Café (1992, NBC), American Gothic (1995-96, CBS): The prime-time reboot of cult melodrama Dark Shadows revived conflicted Barnabas Collins (whose comrades included a young Joseph Gordon-Levitt) as a more feral lovelorn vampire. Fans fell, and hard, until the onset of the Gulf War and erratic scheduling cooled ratings.

A year later, NBC tried out Wes Craven and Robert Englund’s Nightmare Café, a weekly cross between Nightmare on Elm Street and The Twilight Zone that lasted just six episodes. Something more sinister arrived in 1995, when CBS unleashed the bone-chilling, genre-bender American Gothic starring Gary Cole as an immoral sheriff — read: murderous maniac — of a creepy small town in South Carolina. Critics raved, but a too-small audience forced the network to drop it after a season. [/box]

For the full article please visit TVGuide:

American Horror Story will air on FX 10/5/11 at 10pm. I will be watching! They have an interactive online site here where you can explore the home. It has been quite a lot of fun checking out their site to see if they have opened up new “rooms” on the site. Getglue also has limited edition stickers fans can earn based on their check-ins to the show.

Here is a review of the show from Trubookies:  Waiting for season 5 of True Blood sucks but at least with this new show and the premiere of Walking Dead coming soon the waiting will be less painful. American Horror Story site has a full set of clips and behind the scenes videos here:

True Blood’s very own Denis O’Hare has a role in the new show. He will play the role of “Larry the burn guy” in the season premiere. (screencaps above are of Denis in his role from a trailer from FX)
