On the strength of 189.3 million TV ad impressions for promos leading up to its Sept. 5 premiere, FX’s American Horror Story: Cult takes our number-one spot. The horror anthology show, now in its seventh season, outpaces The Orville, Fox’s new sci-fi comedy-drama starring series creator Seth MacFarlane, at number two.

Fox is joined by ABC with The Good Doctor in fourth place and NBC with Law & Order True Crime: The Menendez Murders in fifth place to give broadcast nets the edge this week. But HGTV’s Flip or Flop Atlanta, a familiar presence in our top five over the summer, still makes a strong showing at number three.
