'Damages' leaves FX for DirecTV

Unless you've got DirecTV satellite service, you can say goodbye to legal drama Damages. The show, which Close was just nominated for five Emmys (including a best dramatic actress bid for Glenn Close) is leaving FX and will only air on DirecTV. And unlike Friday Night Lights, which airs on DirecTV first and then repeats on NBC, Damages will be seen only on satellite.

The deal, announced Monday, begins in 2011 and extends for two seasons. Damages drew decent ratings when it debuted on FX in 2007, but by the season that ended this April was pulling less a million viewers per episode.

Wow, that stinks. I don't have DirectTV. I hope they decide to at least repeat it on NBC, but its not sounding too likely. Thanks for the heads-up Glenn!


Damages seemed like a good show on FX. I think FX has a lot of good shows like Sons of Anarchy. I wouldn’t be a happy DIRECTV customer hearing about the FX dispute. As a DISH employee I can tell you that DISH has a long-term contract with FX.
