Lady Gaga, Accused of Racism, Can’t Save ‘American Horror Story’ As Ratings Drop Sharply

Lady Gaga is an iconic singer, fashionista, and an inspiration to a lot of young gay men. However, she isn’t an actress. At least her role in American Horror Story: Hotel isn’t doing anything to save the show. According to Headline Planet, the ratings have dropped sharply again for the third week.

“FX’s ‘American Horror Story: Hotel’ again suffered steep declines in adults 18-49 and total viewership. Wednesday’s episode, which was the third of the current season, posted a 1.67 adults 18-49 rating with 3.202 million total viewers.”

Headline Planet notes that the ratings are far behind those of last week’s broadcast and even further behind the series premiere, which was on October 7. So, what happened? IGN points to a possible problem with the show.

“Again though — to bang the same drum — the episode’s length prevented this chapter from being a concise work and led it down the same sprawling anything-goes path this season has been on.”

The responses on Twitter have been brutal.
