“666 Park Avenue” on ABC
If you think combining “Melrose Place” with “American Horror Story” sounds like a great idea, then you’re not very creative. You are, however, creative enough to be a programming executive at ABC.

ARIES (March 21-April 19): Ten percent of all sexually suggestive text messages are delivered to the wrong number. Take precautions to make sure you're not among that ten percent in the coming weeks.

Togetherness is likely to either become more intensely interesting or else more intensely confusing—and it's largely up to you which direction it goes. For best results, express yourself clearly and with maximum integrity.
