"American Horror Story" ( 9 p.m. Oct. 5, FX; 2 stars ) reminds me of a car wreck: It's disturbing and macabre to stare as you drive past, but you just can't help yourself.   The new FX drama is moody, weird and shocking, but creators Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk populate the series with one-dimensional characters, pat story lines cribbed from myriad haunted house and slasher movies, some awful dialogue and a lot of naked Dylan McDermott. McDermott's nudity is a good metaphor for the series: It's fun to look at, but there's not a lot of substance underneath.

A lot of tongues were wagging in "American Horror Story: Coven," Chapter 7, "The Dead. "  Let's get started with THE tongue, the only one that matters - Spalding's. Zoe found it, fresh as a daisy despite being detached from his head 30 years ago, and reattached it with this episodes' very rare hocus-pocus. By now viewers are used to a lot of crazy in each episode, but this one seemed to have more talk than action, which was a bit disappointing. Anyway, back to Zoe, who is getting more daring as well as powerful.

I hope Jessica Lange never ends her collaboration with Ryan Murphy. "American Horror Story" just won't be the same without her. No matter what outlandish acts Murphy and his co-producer Brad Falchuk ask of the Oscar and Emmy winner, she turns them into small-screen magic. That's never been truer than in the scare-fest's latest season, "Coven" ( 9 p.m. CT Wednesday, Oct. 9, FX; 3.5 stars out of 4 ). Lange plays Fiona Goode, the all-powerful Supreme witch of an ages-old coven that fled the Salem Witch Trials for the relative peace of New...

Using the tag lines "This fall, the Coven's wrath will be hard to swallow" and "This fall, the kiss of death is coming," FX on Tuesday unleashed a new teaser and motion poster for "American Horror Story: Coven. " Talk about your deep throats. The new promos expand upon the show's official poster, which shows a snake slithering into and out of the mouths of three young witches. In the "Slither" teaser, a snake goes into a witch's mouth and at the very end, pops his head out again.
