Ah, "American Horror Story: Freak Show." You really are going to be disgusting; at least if these brief teasers are any indications.

The latest teaser, after the claw-handed ditty from last week, features a man licking a lollipop. Okay, kind of weird you say. Maybe it's a fetish thing. But then you realize that the reason the man can lick the lollipop so vigorously is because he's got a forked tongue. You know, like a lizard. Say it with us now: ewwwww!

Besides the forked tongue freak show guy, this teaser is also notable for the first one to have the actual date of the premiere: Wednesday, October 8th. This is very good. October 8th isn't that far away.

"American Horror Story: Coven," last year's installment of the anthology series, is up for six Emmy awards tonight, including best mini-series and nominations for Jessica Lange and Sarah Paulson (both of whom will return for "Freak Show").

Also included in the "Freak Show" cast: Evan Peters, Frances Conroy, Denis O'Hare, Jamie Brewer, Emma Roberts, Kathy Bates, Angela Bassett, Gabourey Sidibe, and Michael Chiklis, with recurring cast members including Wes Bentley, John Carroll Lynch (as Twisty, the "clown killer") and Patti LaBelle. The Hollywood Reporter also noted that the almost supernaturally adorable Matt Bomer will appear in one episode of the fourth season of the series, in an unspecified role. Spooky!
