It’s a good witch not a bad witch.

FX’s American Horror Story: Coven launched Wednesday night to the anthology franchise’s biggest audience ever. The debut was seen by 5.5 million viewers, up 44 percent from last year’s American Horror Story: Asylum. The episode also delivered a 3.0 rating among adults 18-49 — up roughly 90 percent from last fall and topping everything on broadcast last night except ABC’s Modern Family. If you add the show’s first encore, AHS had a total of 7.8 million.

Peppered with humorous dialogue and structured with surprising discipline for the typically feverish horror-drama, AHS:C also garnered a rave from EW critic Melissa Maerz (and be sure to check out Darren Franich’s detailed recap here).
