Because FX’s “American Horror Story: Hotel” has been enjoying massive gains from time-shifted viewership, the statistics will not hold in the live+3 and live+7 ratings reports.
But from a live+same-day standpoint, Wednesday’s “AHS: Hotel” was the “American Horror Story” franchise’s lowest-rated and least-watched episode yet.
Per Nielsen cable data, the episode drew a 0.85 adults 18-49 rating and reached 1.836 million total viewers.
Series lows, the numbers trail the 0.94 adults 18-49 rating and 1.846 million viewership mark posted by last week’s episode. Last week’s viewership mark was itself a series low.
The “Hotel” installment of “AHS” premiered with a 2.99 rating and 5.807 million live+same-day viewers on October 7, 2015. All but one of the subsequent “Hotel” episodes endured L+SD losses in adults 18-49 and total viewership.
