It's the #1 cable show for its night and it's generating a lot of buzz for FX as being shocking and edgy, which seems like exactly how FX wants to be buzzed about (good for brand building).

I think it's perfectly safe unless the ratings crash.

However, I checked Sons of Anarchy's recent demo, and it is higher - 1.9 vs 1.6 for AHS - (it's also #1 for its night, excluding sports which really doesn't count). FX must be pretty pleased having two shows ranked so high, and both good for their brand.
Well, I hope it maintains or perhaps can improve its ratings. I wonder how the ratings will fare for the second episode? I would like to see it hang around long enough to see if it can rein in its excesses and produce something genuinely unsettling.
