    Doubtful anyone is complaining that it's coming back and for 2 more seasons, at least...I think the bigger concern about the late start date (Yes, everyone knows it's due to the writer's strike) is that it will surely be a 'kiss of death' in terms of trying to hold onto not to mention increase the viewers for the show (And hence help the show live on)...It can be a complicated storyline and many regular viewers had a hard time staying with the way they dragged out the first season...And now to have it pushed back even further, I think, does not bode well for the future of the show


    The fact that Nip/Tuck is pushed back to about the same time Damages comes back (as of now anyway), makes it a lot more likely that the ratings will still be strong enough (People are curious). The creators also talked about making it a friendlier show to jump into in the middle, since that was FX's main complaint.

    It's got some Emmy nominations, so I am confident the show will attract some curious people.

    They do need to re-air season 1 again to re-fresh everyones memory since the show will have been off the air for almost 2 years.

    The emmy nominations and critical acclaim sure attracted me! I Bought the first season without even watching one episode and I loved it! Hopefully there will be more people like me attracted to the show because of awards attention.

    Also you never know they could be planning a huge ad campaign......

    Very cla$$y promo airing on FX about Damages Wed Jan 7th start date:

    (voice over by Ellen) "Last year I was fresh out of law school - buried in student loans. Today I cashed a bonus check for 2 million & I sit at the right hand of Patty Hewes. She's ready to teach me everything. There's only one problem - she tried to kill me."

    Go to FX Damages home page, after the intro shots, click on "videos" at the bottom of the page to see the promo. It's titled Stepping Stone.

    There are two more videos up on the website. One of Which they played during "The Shield" last night. They have actual scenes and dialouge in them but I still can't tell much of what will happen except that Frobisher seems to be in it deep.

    from tvbythenumbers: Damages 2nd season premiered to an underwhelming 1.8 million and a 0.5 rating among 18-49 year olds. Damages was off 44% from its season one premiere.

    From an Oct 2008 Variety article: FX topper John Landgraf believes the standard cable industry operating procedure of publicizing overnight numbers featuring total viewer counts for a series' initial run should give way to reporting the metrics that advertisers care about. For starters, that means combining the viewership of the various encore presentations.

    "What we actually sell to advertisers is a multirun cume," Landgraf says. "In my view, I could care less if somebody watches "The Shield" at 10 p.m. on Tuesday or an encore several days later, because what I'm selling is the cumulative rating of its runs. ... If you're a cable show and you're on four times a week, that's your weekly viewership."

    So numbers will probably be higher after the encore showings are counted.

    actors must be stoked about the number of shows now using flashbacks, time travel, and ghosts. No longer does being killed off mean you're out of a job. But I'm getting pretty sick of getting "Lost" on every show.

    Damages is great but I'm switching right to that after LOST and it's alot to process in one night. So I guess from now on I'm going to leave it to my DVR and watch it later.

    tvbythenumbers Top 20 Cable Shows for week ending Feb 15, 2009:

    Ep 2.6, Feb 11: 941,000 viewers (stats for 1st airing only)

    There was an increase in 18-49 viewing attributed to DVR (from 497,000 for the initial airing to 828,000 via the live+7 numbers)

    The Biz: Damages' Audience Much Larger Than Ratings Would Indicate by Hilary Lewis

    ...While the season-to-date average for first-run airings of the show is 1.1 million viewers, according to FX that number jumps up to 3.1 million when you factor in viewers of the four repeats of each episode the channel airs throughout the week. And when you add the number of people watching new episodes via DVR, the audience for the show's original airings increases by 55% to 1.7 million. FX claims that most of their shows experience a 20%-25% increase in viewership via DVR, so Damages' numbers are "extraordinary."
    ...the percent of the show's audience that comes from people watching DVR'ed episodes is 35% of Damages' total viewership
    ...An FX spokesperson told us last week that the third season is already locked in, it's not contingent on ratings for this season, and the channel won't back out of producing it.
