* ActorShipping: This show has huge amounts of actor shipping, the most notable of these being Parmiga (Creator/EvanPeters and Creator/TaissaFarmiga) and Raulson (Lily Rabe and Creator/SarahPaulson). The former has mostly come about due to the pair's portrayal of Season 1's highly popular couple [[AxCrazy Tate Langdon]] and [[EmoTeen Violet Harmon]], as well as the fact that they played a couple once again in Season 3. [[LesYay Raulson]] was about even before American Horror Story started, and was present all throughout the first two seasons, finally coming to a head during Season 3 with their portrayals of [[CloudCuckooLander Misty Day]] and [[TheSmartGirl Cordelia Foxx]], who are an immensely popular ship.

* ActorShipping:
** A lot of fans ship Creator/SarahPaulson and Creator/LilyRabe, despite both being in happy relationships with Creator/HollandTaylor and Hamish Linklater, respectively. This is mostly due to the fact that the two seem quite close in real life, Sarah seeming to openly flirt with Lily, [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SpquoFV17UU such as the time she grabbed Lily's butt during an interview]], and to their chemistry on screen, especially in ''[[Series/AmericanHorrorStoryCoven Coven]]'', where their characters make up what might be the most popular ship in the whole fandom. The pairing, often called Raulson, is very popular on Tumblr, and is almost as popular as pairing their characters together.
** Plenty of fans ship Creator/SarahPaulson and Creator/EvanPeters. This started in ''[[Series/AmericanHorrorStoryFreakShow Freak Show]]'', where Peters and Paulson played love interests, getting to show off their chemistry. This is despite the fact that Peter's was with Creator/EmmaRoberts at the time, though they broke up in 2019.

* BrokenBase: The general consensus is that the show suffered from SeasonalRot. But where the show went wrong, and if it recovered, is up for debate. While ''Asylum'' is regarded as the pinnacle of the series, ''Coven'' is either the start of the quality drop, or stands up with the first two seasons as the show's best seasons.
** Likewise, while almost everyone agrees the show [[SurprisinglyImprovedSequel got back on track at some point]], almost no one can actually agree when that was, though it's usually considered to be ''Hotel'' or ''Roanoke'' for most viewers.

* BrokenBase: BaseBreakingCharacter: More of a case of Base-Breaking Recurring Actor. Creator/SarahPaulson's recurring role through the series has divided opinion. Some people like her due to playing TheWoobie only to be shown to be as manipulative and controlling as the show's villains, but on the other hand, some people have grown very tired of her often being the heavy focus of the show regardless of the season or character she's playing, and beyond that, for coming up on top almost all the time, to the point where some fans have dropped the show outright because they know Sarah Paulson will have a big role and, after much woobeing, will come up on top, again, once more.

* EnsembleDarkhorse: '''Creator/JessicaLange'''. To the point where she's considered the best actress of the entire series. Fans have shown sadness following her departure from the series following ''Freakshow'', which is considered the lowest season of the series and not a good SwanSong for her.

* FriendlyFandoms: With ''[[Series/RuPaulsDragRace [=RuPaul's=] Drag Race]]'', due to numerous Shout Outs in both challenges and on the runway, not to mention AHS's huge queer fanbase in general. Plenty of cast regulars have been guest judges on the show, vice versa season 7 alum Creator/TrixieMattel had a cameo in ''Roanoke''.

* DarknessInducedAudienceApathy: The show ''tends'' to have this for some people, whether the characters are just unbearable {{Jerkass}}es, the constant usage of YourCheatingHeart, the BlackAndGrayMorality the characters have, or even the fact AnyoneCanDie ruins any interests some have with the show.

* EvenBetterSequel: The show is considered to have [[GrowingTheBeard Grown The Beard]] in ''Asylum''. The fact that ''Murder House'' focuses on a fairly conservative upper middle class family while subsequent seasons focus more on people who are marginalized for whatever reason and have strong feminist, LGBT and anti-racist themes may have something to do with the show's increase in quality and its popularity with women, African Americans, and LGBT people.
