The bleed continues for FX’s “American Horror Story: Hotel,” which again slipped in adults 18-49 and total viewership.

Per Nielsen cable data, Wednesday’s episode drew a 1.48 adults 18-49 rating with 2.867 million total viewers. Both numbers trail those of the previous broadcast, which posted a 1.60 and reached 3.045 million total viewers.

Not simply down from the previous week’s episode, Wednesday’s “Hotel” was the lowest-rated fifth episode in the franchise’s five-season history. It was #3 in total viewers (below “Freak Show” and “Coven” but above “Asylum” and “Murder House”). A breakdown of each season’s fifth episode is included below.

Like this week’s episode, the fifth installments of “Freak Show” and “Coven” faced competition from ABC’s annual CMA Awards broadcast. The 2013 and 2014 CMA Awards, moreover, drew stronger ratings than this year’s edition.

The presence of the CMA Awards does not, therefore, excuse the year-over-year decline.

Following the October 7 premiere, each “Hotel” episode has suffered week-over-week losses in adults 18-49 and total viewership.

Season 5: 1.48 rating, 2.867 million viewers
Season 4: 2.11 rating, 4.220 million viewers
