We're yelling 'timber'!

Now it's time to talk about Lady Gaga's newest project, American Horror Story: Hotel.

While it may have started off strong, the ratings have been going down, down, down the past few weeks.

By the numbers:
Week 1 – 5.807 million viewers
Week 2 – 4.061 million viewers
Week 3 – 3.202 million viewers
Week 4 – 3.045 million viewers
Week 5 – 2.867 million viewers

It looks like a pretty steady decline... but that's not all. 

According to Headline Planet, it seems that this has been the lowest rated ‘episode 5’ of any of the previous seasons of the show.

Season 1 (Episode 5) – 2.745 million viewers
Season 2 (Episode 5) – 2.779 million viewers
Season 3 (Episode 5) – 3.799 million viewers
Season 4 (Episode 5) – 4.220 million viewers
Season 5 (Episode 5) – 2.867 million viewers

Notice how every season saw an increase in viewership for episode five except this one?

It’ll be interesting to see where this ends up going, especially since Gaga’s been nominated for a People’s Choice Award (Favorite Sci-Fi/Fantasy TV Actress) for her role in the show.

Luckily for Lady Gaga, the award is not based on skill or merit.
