Also, is it just us, or has it been too long since we've been terrified by Ryan Murphy? Not to worry — premiere date info has been released for the latest season of "American Horror Story." This season (the "Hotel" season) will premiere Oct. 7. 

And mourning "Sons of Anarchy" fans: There's a light at the end of the tunnel. "SOA" creator Kurt Sutter's new show, "The Bastard Executioner," will be on Sept. 15. And if you're enjoying the new season of "The Strain," you're in luck, because FX has officially ordered a third season of the drama.

If you've enjoyed Pamela Adlon's appearances on "Louie," you'll be pleased to hear that her show, "Better Things," which is co-created by Louis C.K., has been officially picked up to series, though no premiere information is available just yet.

Is that enough to overwhelm your DVR yet?
