American Horror Story Renewed For S5

A month ago the seventh and final season premiere of biker drama “Sons of Anarchy” became the FX’s network’s highest rated telecast to date with 9.25 million total viewers in Live+7 ratings.

That record has been broken with “American Horror Story: Freak Show,” the fourth season of the anthology series premiering last week to a whopping 10 million viewers in Live+3 ratings and 6.54 million in the key 18-49 demo.

Live+7 ratings for the episode, when they become available, are expected to push that record even higher. Unsurprisingly, FX has used the news to announce that they have renewed the series for a thirteen-episode fifth season due to air next Fall.
