Critic’s corner: What’s on TV tonight

American Horror Story: Asylum 10 p.m., FX

The flashy series — excuse me, miniseries — returns for season two tonight. This time, the thrills are set in Briarcliff Manor, the largest tuberculosis ward on the East Coast, where 46,000 people died. Yeah, that’s a lot of ghosts. The Catholic Church bought Briarcliff in the 1960s and turned it into an insane asylum. Adam Levine, Jessica Lange (pictured), Chloe Sevigny, Joseph Fiennes, and Ian McShane are among the stars this season. Plus: Best. Typeface. Ever.
