TV Watch List: Wednesday, Oct. 5
‘American Horror Story’
DRAMA. This drama from Ryan Murphy is much more “Nip/Tuck” than “Glee.” The haunted house tale kicks off when a troubled family moves into a mansion where it seems not all former residents have left. Check out our interview with the show’s creator here.
Series premiere, 10 p.m., FX

Season premiere, 10 p.m., Comedy Central
COMEDY. It’s cousin Delilah’s (Amy Sedaris) big day in Vegas, but the Chances are going to try to give Virginia (Martha Plimpton) to wedding she always wanted too. (Please, please let it involve a drive-thru and Elvis.)
