'American Horror Story' renewed for third season

As weird as American Horror Story has been this year, you can't accuse it of being unwatchable television. FX seems to agree, because they've renewed the show for a third season already. Maybe this year is just a sophomore slump.

"With American Horror Story: Asylum, (producers) Ryan (Murphy) and Brad (Falchuk) have raised the bar in every way from Murder House, the first American Horror Story miniseries," FX president and general manager John Landgraf told Entertainment Weekly in a statement. "And their original idea — the notion of doing an anthological series of miniseries with a repertory cast — has proven groundbreaking, wildly successful and will prove to be trendsetting. We can't wait to see what deviously brilliant ideas they come up with for their third miniseries."

Here's to hoping Jessica Lange can get her accent right next season. And they bring back Connie Britton. And leave out the aliens stuff altogether. That was a bit much.
