American Horror Story Premiers tonight at 10 on the FX network. The show stars Connie Britton, Dylan McDermott, and Taissa Farmiga as the Harmon Family who have moved from Boston to Los Angeles in the wake of an affair. Unknown to them the house that they move into is haunted.

I’m very hopeful for this series because It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia also airs on FX and is nearly as twisted as any horror story could be. According to Ken Tucker of Entertainment Weekly, “AHS is pretty much all scare, all the time: a whole lotta screams, sex, jolts, mashed faces, psychotic behavior, and dead babies.” The trailers seem to give the impression that this might be one of those “you might want to sleep with the lights on” horror shows. See the trailer below.

If you haven’t heard, The Walking Dead is coming back this October 16, 2012. Last year, it premiered on October 31, or Halloween and I was hoping for a similar situation this time around. However, this might be beneficial since I had to watch my DVRd episode the next day due to all the wonderful Halloween activities I had on my plate.

See below for one of the many new trailers released in anticipation.

What do you think is going to happen this season; I’ve noticed it isn’t quite following the Comics panel for panel anyway. If you haven’t seen the first season, it’s available on Amazon on Demand  Here.
