Eric Stonestreet Is a Patient Afraid of The Piggy Man on 'American Horror Story' (VIDEO)

Eric Stonestreet, 'American Horror Story' - 'Piggy, Piggy'This week, we learned that there are horrors that have nothing to do with the supernatural lurking around the corners of 'American Horror Story' (Wed., 10PM ET on FX). While the secret history of Tate was the driving focus of the episode, Eric Stonestreet appeared as one of Ben's patients tortured by his fear of urban legends.

One legend in particular, about "The Piggy Man," is reminiscent of the classic "Bloody Mary" legend. Ben gets him to recite the words into a mirror that would summon The Piggy Man on two separate occasions throughout the episode, and neither of them turn out well.

Frank Makes a Viral Video on 'It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia' (VIDEO)

Danny DeVito as Frank ReynoldsWould you trust Frank Reynolds (Danny DeVito) to make a video to advertise your establishment? If the answer is yes or even maybe, feast your eyes upon the surreal, random and downright dishonest video he created on this week's 'It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia' (Thu., 10PM ET on FX) before any money changes hands.

Realizing that it's far better to lie in order to get your way, Frank presented the gang with his homemade commercial, which boasted that Paddy's was "the oldest pub in America," frequented by celebrities (but only the fun ones, like Snooki, Charlie Sheen and O.J. Simpson) and offering strippers, Motley Crue and cake for customers, among other, equally unappetizing things.

So much lying, and Paddy's still doesn't seem even vaguely appealing to visit. Don't give up the day job, Frank.

Hayden Returns With Secrets to Reveal on 'American Horror Story' (VIDEO)

'American Horror Story' - 'Halloween, Part 2''American Horror Story' (Wed., 10PM ET on FX) wrapped its two-part Halloween special last night, and arguably delivered its tensest moments, truly establishing itself as a horror show worth reckoning with. On Halloween night, the spirits were free to roam the city freely, which made them even more dangerous and unpredictable than usual.

But one ghost didn't need to leave the house to cause trouble. Too bad for Ben that Larry killed his mistress, Hayden, on the property because it allowed her spirit to rise up and spill all his secrets to Vivien.

'Sons of Anarchy' Season 4, Episode 9 Recap

by Maureen Ryan, posted Nov 1st 2011 11:00PM
['Sons of Anarchy' - 'Kiss']

Oh, Jax. You stepped up and showed some very savvy leadership in this episode. Much of what was good about 'Kiss' stemmed from Charlie Hunnam's terrific performance and from the ways in which the episode showed that Clay isn't just reckless these days, he's also not a good leader for the club. Jax is clearly the right man for these troubled times.

But does Jax really think a sitdown with the Irish, the cartel and the club is just one of "a few details" he has to take care of, a simple errand to be disposed of quickly? Has he learned nothing from being involved in the Sons of Anarchy Motorcycle Club since he was knee-high to a Harley?

FX Renews 'American Horror Story'

American Horror Story RenewedAfter scoring record ratings for the network, FX has renewed 'American Horror Story' for a second season.

"It's one thing to have the ambition and guts to reinvent a genre in a way that makes it captivatingly fresh for a broad audience -- it's something else entirely to have the craft to back that ambition up," John Landgraf, president and general manager of FX Networks, said in a statement. "Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk have hit the trifecta with 'Nip/Tuck,' 'Glee' and now 'American Horror Story,' which will be scaring FX's viewers to death for many years to come."

Why Getting Into Business with Charlie Sheen Is a Terrible Idea for FX

by Maureen Ryan, posted Oct 28th 2011 2:30PM
Television is a business. Some days, it feels like 95 percent of television exists to remind us of that.

Many shows are made for cynical reasons, by cynical people, in order to rake in the cash that props up multinational corporations. So much of the time, making money is the name of the game and creativity and originality are afterthoughts, if that.

But I've staked my career on the idea that television is more than a business, that it can be an art as well. Those of us who approach this gig with that belief -- with anything other than a cynical attitude, that is -- are liable to get blindsided by pointed reminders that cynicism and opportunism are the standard operating modes in Hollywood.

Yesterday, we got one of those reminders. I suppose I shouldn't have been surprised that FX got into business with Charlie Sheen via his new show, 'Anger Management,' but it was hard not to feel disappointment.

Dennis Faces the Darts Firing Squad on 'It's Always Sunny' (VIDEO)

'It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia' - 'Chardee MacDennis: The Game of Games'This was a bit of an odd installment for 'It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia' (Thu., 10PM ET on FX) as there was genuinely nothing happening. Usually they get up to some kind of crazy shenanigans, but this week all they did was play a board game.

Nevertheless, it was probably one of the most entertaining installments yet, as 'Chardee MacDennis: The Game of Games' is easily one of the most insane and entertaining games yet. It incorporates the best aspects of drinking games and board games into a crazy mish-mash of experiences.

Charlie Sheen FX Anger ManagementIs Charlie Sheen's winning streak back on? The former 'Two and a Half Men' star just got a new job.

Sheen will return to TV next summer in 'Anger Management' -- a small-screen adaptation of the Adam Sandler/Jack Nicholson comedy from 2003 -- FX Networks president John Landgraf announced today.

FX has ordered 10 episodes of sitcom 'Anger Management,' with production set to begin in early 2012. Writer-producer Bruce Helford will act as executive producer and showrunner.

But we're not just talking about one season -- if the show is a hit, FX will pick up an additional 90 episodes under a unique syndication model crafted by Lionsgate-owned distributor Debmar-Mercury for multiple Tyler Perry sitcoms and Revolution's and Ice Cube's 'Are We There Yet?' The series will air exclusively on FX until the off-network episodes start airing in broadcast syndication in fall 2014.

"We think that Bruce Helford, Joe Roth and Charlie Sheen have come up with a wonderful, hilarious vehicle for Charlie's acting talents -- and a character we are very much looking forward to seeing him play," said Landgraf, President and General Manager, FX Networks. "'Two and a Half Men' has been an outstanding component of FX's schedule for the past 14 months, and we have every confidence that 'Anger Management' will soon be as well."

Addy's Halloween Night Takes a Shocking Turn on 'American Horror Story' (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Oct 27th 2011 6:30AM
'American Horror Story' - 'Halloween, Part 1'Adelaide has been one of the more intriguing characters on 'American Horror Story' (Wed., 10PM ET on FX). It appears that most of the people the Harmons encounter in the house are ghosts, but Addy was always very real. And yet she was in the house almost constantly.

She's been connected with it dating back to the 1970s when she was a child, but the spirits don't seem to wish her any harm. Of course, they don't seem to mess with her mother, Constance, either but that could be because Constance may well be scarier than any of them.

The Gang Argues Over When It's Okay to Go Looting on 'It's Always Sunny' (VIDEO)

'It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia' - 'The Storm of the Century'Everyone was in full panic mode as 'the storm of the century' was reportedly bearing down on 'It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia' (Thu., 10:30PM ET on FOX). It gave the gang a chance to open back up their old Y2K bunker, which was a pretty frightening-looking place.

With the supplies depleted, the guys head out to the local superstore to stock up, while Dee barricaded the bar. But when Frank accidentally shot Cricket, they were forced to go out in the storm to take him to the hospital. Only they took a detour to the supermart when Mac bailed on the guys and their supplies.

Things Get Even Worse When Larry Meets Ben's Mistress on 'American Horror Story' (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Oct 20th 2011 7:00AM
'American Horror Story' - 'Murder House'I know we're only three episodes in, but it feels like we really need some things to start making sense on 'American Horror Story' (Wed., 10PM ET on FX). More and more questions and mysteries about who and what all these people are keep being thrown at us, with very little explanation of motive or intentions.

For example, when Ben's ex-lover showed up suddenly announcing that she'd decided not to abort the baby, that was certainly going to cause chaos in Ben's life. She was demanding he be involved and help pay for the baby. So that's bad for Ben.

Frank's Brother Returns, Firing Up a Decades-Old Dispute on 'Always Sunny' (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Oct 14th 2011 7:00AM
'It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia' - 'Frank's Brother'Frank took center stage this week on 'It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia' in an episode that took us back to his wayward youth when he somehow still looked like a 66-year old Danny DeVito. It was triggered when his brother showed up and Frank smashed a bottle over his head.

Probably one of the funniest things about the flashbacks was that both he and character actor Jon Polito played their younger selves, with terrible 1960s wigs. Even better, everyone around DeVito kept insisting he looked 12, instead of the 19 he supposedly was.

Spirits Aren't the Most Dangerous Thing in the House on 'American Horror Story' (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Oct 13th 2011 6:15AM
'American Horror Story' - 'Home Invasion'It looks like the threats that aren't supernatural are just as dangerous on 'American Horror Story' (Wed., 10PM ET on FX). The question of why the Harmon family just doesn't move out were addressed head on -- or at least the conversation has begun -- in this week's installment.

Ben discovered he wasn't quite done with the very young woman he cheated on his wife with, as she's pregnant and wants him there when she gets an abortion. That left Vivien and Violet alone in the house, though both Tate and Addy seem able to come in whenever they want.

Juice Must Think Fast to Save Himself on 'Sons of Anarchy' (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Oct 12th 2011 5:45AM
'Sons of Anarchy' - 'With an X'Juice was in a very tough spot with the Mayans and the Sons when we left things off last week. He stewed in it through most of this episode of 'Sons of Anarchy' (Tue., 10PM ET on FX), as both clubs started pointing fingers at who might have taken that kilo of cocaine.

Jax stood up for Juice immediately, and because of his long standing in the club, no one questioned his loyalty or possibly complicity in the theft. That left the newer recruits, who'd been on guard duty without even knowing what they were guarding.
