‘American Horror Story: Apocalypse’ Premiere Viewers Dip More Than 17 Percent From ‘Cult’ Debut
“American Horror Story: Apocalypse” premiered last Wednesday, down 17.5 percent in total viewers compared to the start of “Cult” — the Ryan Murphy anthology series’ previous installment — marking the least-watched of all “Ahs” debuts, according to Live+3 numbers.

Season 8’s 10 p.m. premiere telecast scored 5.7 million total viewers and 3.5 million viewers in the advertiser-coveted adults 18-49 demographic, when counting three days of delayed viewing from Nielsen. Adding in two encore telecasts and all linear and non-linear data available (not including VOD), “Apocalypse”s premiere rose to 7.8 million overall sets of eyeballs in L+3 numbers.

The FX series was the No. 1 show for the evening in the 18-49 range and the most-watched basic cable program of the night. The season opener was also the second-most-watched program of 2018-to-date in the key demo and in total viewers, coming in behind “The Walking Dead.”

‘Ahs: Apocalypse': Here’s Your First Look at Jessica Lange’s Return as ‘Queen Constance’ (Photo)
You better sit down, “American Horror Story” fans, because Ryan Murphy just gave you something that’s definitely worth fainting over: Jessica Lange back in character as Constance Langdon on the set of “Apocalypse.”

“To celebrate 300 k followers, here’s a first look at the return of Queen Constance…the one and only Lady Lange…being directed by that dynamo of wit and talent Sarah Paulson. Love them both!” the FX anthology series’ creator captioned a shot he posted to Instagram Wednesday of Paulson (who is leading the cast and directing this season) and franchise alum Lange, laughing on set.

Lange left the series after Season 4 aka “Freak Show.” And though she previously said she would not be returning, Paulson revealed in July that Lange would in fact be back for Season 8, aka the “Murder House”/”Coven” crossover.

American Horror Story: First Look at Jessica Lange's Return as Constance

The queen… has returned. As a thank-you for hitting 300,000 followers on Instagram, American Horror Story creator Ryan Murphy shared the first photo (above) of Ahs fave Jessica Lange on the set of Apocalypse. What’s more, the photo — which could easily be mistaken for the cover of a Mother’s Day card — features Lange interacting with director (and fellow Ahs queen) Sarah Paulson.

Once a staple of the FX franchise, Lange hasn’t been seen on American Horror Story since Freak Show (Season 4) ended in 2015. But she’ll be back for one episode this season, reprising the role of Constance

Updates on The Conjuring 3, Annabelle 3 and The Crooked Man

With the latest chapter of The Conjuring Universe, The Nun, proving to be another solid hit for Warner Bros. at the box office (and taking the series beyond a combined $1.4 billion at the worldwide box office), producer Peter Safran and writer Gary Dauberman have been providing an update on several planned future instalments in the horror franchise.

Bo Report: ‘The Predator’ reboot lacks venom while ‘The Merger’ hangs on

The Predator’ (Photo: 20th Century Fox).

Does the world need another iteration of the Predator franchise, 31 years after soldier of fortune Arnold Schwarzenegger first tangled with the extra-terrestrial creature?

That’s debatable in light of the soft launches in the Us, Australia and other territories last weekend for Fox’s $88 million-budgeted The Predator.

Here Shane Black’s action-adventure was beaten by the third weekend of Warner Bros’ blockbuster Crazy Rich Asians although it outpaced the other openers, Roadshow’s A Simple Favour, Disney’s Christopher Robin, WB’s Teen Titans Go! To the Movies and Sony’s Searching.

Meanwhile Mark Grentell’s football-themed comedy/drama The Merger eased by 30 per cent in its second weekend, making $66,000 on 77 screens, playing just one session a day at most locations. The Umbrella Entertainment release starring Damian Callinan, Kate Mulvany and John Howard has scored $301,000 including festival screenings.

Receipts for the top 20 titles totalled $13.5 million,

‘The Nun’ Raps ‘Predator’s Knuckles, Repeats At #1 – International Box Office
Refresh for latest…: Warner Bros/New Line’s The Nun conjured a $33.1M second weekend in 62 markets at the international box office. That’s a 58% drop from her record-breaking opening and brings the offshore cume to $143.6M for $228.7M global.

In total, the Shane Black-directed reboot stalked into 72 markets on 12,121 screens and saw No. 1s in 25 debuts including Russia which leads at $4.73M (The Nun has not yet blessed Russia with her presence). The starts in most markets are better than the previous Predator films, but there have been vast changes in the offshore landscape since.

Tiff 2018: ‘What They Had’ Review: Dir. Elizabeth Chomko (2018)

What They Had review: Hilary Swank and Michael Shannon play brother and sister in this light-hearted though sometimes hard-hitting drama about a family who pulls together when their mother’s battle with Alzheimer’s takes a turn for the worse.

What They Had review [Tiff]

Swank leads the cast as Bridget Ertz, a mother living with her teenage daughter (Taissa Farmiga) and husband (Josh Lucas) in California. A call out of the blue sees her rush back to the family home in Chicago where her ailing mother, Ruth, played by Blythe Danner has disappeared. Her father, Burt (Robert Forster), is clearly distraught, and it is the consensus that Ruth belongs in a home, something that he is unwilling to commit to after the fifty or so years that they haven’t left one another’s side and the retirement that are both trying to enjoy.

‘American Horror Story: Apocalypse’ Premieres to More Than 3 Million Viewers

“American Horror Story: Apocalypse” didn’t come in with a Nielsen ratings bang Wednesday night — at least not compared to the FX anthology series’ previous season openers.

The first episode of Season 8 scored 3.08 million total viewers in live-plus-same-day numbers, meaning Ryan Murphy’s “Apocalypse” started down in overall eyeballs against the debut of “Cult” (Season 7), which brought in 3.93 million total viewers in L+Sd last September.

That makes “Apocalypse” the lowest-rated “Ahs” season opener, below “Murder House” (Season 1), which landed 3.18 million viewers in 2011, and “Asylum” (Season 2), which put up 3.85 million viewers in 2012.

Mind you, these are all still solid numbers for a cable show’s premiere and the Live+3 ratings, which will include three days of delayed viewing and streaming numbers, will give you an even better idea of how “Apocalypse” stacks up against the other installments.

Be Patient: Your Favorite American Horror Story Characters Will Appear on Apocalypse

Be Patient: Your Favorite American Horror Story Characters Will Appear on Apocalypse
In the months leading up to the debut of American Horror Story: Apocalypse, all the buzz around the series centered around one particular tidbit: that the eighth season of the horror anthology would actually be a crossover between Murder House (season one) and Coven (season three). If you watched Apocalypse's first episode, though, you might be feeling a little confused right now, because none of the characters we know (with one evil exception) show up. Was it all just a big ploy by Ryan Murphy and company?

Not quite. The confusion stems from the fact that a couple of American Horror Story regulars - namely Sarah Paulson and Evan Peters - appear in the first episode of Apocalypse, but not as their Murder House or Coven characters, just as new characters. But that doesn't mean those are the only characters they'll play all season long. Consider the press around
