American Horror Story: Asylum stories

It was a big year for sci-fi and fantasy television with Walking Dead chewing up the screen, with The Vampire Diaries killing off its heroine ... kinda, and with American Horror Story getting its freak on. But what TV moments made us laugh or gave us the chills or broke our hearts. And what was our number one favorite moment of the year?
The holiday season is upon us, and that means our TV schedule is slimming out a bit. Most of our shows had Thanksgiving week off, but there's still plenty to talk about. American Horror Story tried to brave the holiday week and paid for it, while Once Upon A Time got a big rebound and Revolution stopped falling. And you can probably guess how The Walking Dead did.
We're about two months into the 2012-2013 TV season, and it's getting easier to tell which shows will be sticking around and which ones probably won't make the cut. On ABC, both 666 Park Avenue and Last Resort are struggling, while Elementary is making a case for another season at CBS. Meanwhile, there is no question at all about the futures of The Walking Dead and The Big Bang Theory.
Think season one of FX's American Horror Story was over the top? Well, when season two premieres tonight under the title of American Horror Story: Aslyum, you'll find there are whole new levels of "extreme," "shocking," and "terror" to explore, said stars Zachary Quinto and Sarah Paulson in an exclusive interview with Blastr. And no, this one doesn't have ghosts.
