Jessica Lange is taking home the Golden Globe for best supporting actress on TV for her work on American Horror Story. She beat out Kelly Macdonald, Sofia Vergara, Maggie Smith, and Evan Rachel Wood. Do you agree with this win?
New FX series American Horror Story has had an incredibly successful first season, getting picked up for a second run and recently receiving a Golden Globe nomination for best drama series. If you haven't jumped on the bandwagon yet, the frightening plot, well-developed characters, and stunning mansion are all reasons why you should be watching. Fans of Lost will especially appreciate the part horror/part mystery theme, as well as the flashbacks, which uncover details of the past lives of the house's occupants.

Halloween is finally here, but FX is prepared to offer viewers scares long after the holiday is over. The network has announced that it will renew American Horror Story for a second season. The drama focuses on a family that moves into a new home only to discover it has a dark history. The show delivers frights in each episode by revealing the vicious series of crimes that have occurred in the home, but the real intrigue for me lies in finding out what the handful of ghosts that haunt the Harmon family want from them — as well as who (or what) Connie Britton's character will give birth to! I'll definitely be tuning in to watch the mysteries unfold, but if you've missed American Horror Story, you can get caught up on the home's sinister history when FX airs a four-episode marathon tonight.
American Horror Story premiered on FX this week, bringing the horror genre that is usually reserved for the big screen to TV. The show wasted no time bringing the frights, giving viewers a quick look at a bloodthirsty creature lurking in the basement of the new home of principal characters Ben (Dylan McDermott) and Vivien (Connie Britton) before the opening credits had even rolled. While I'm a fan of scenes that make me jump in my seat, I'm more interested in finding out the details behind some of the mysteries the premiere episode set up. Why did the neighbor refer to killing the living maid again, and who exactly was the masked man Vivien slept with? I'm tuning in to find out, but what did you think? Will you keep watching or are you done after the pilot episode?
