Last season of Damages?

I normally don't post on cable ratings because cable shows are renewed much easier and aren't as competitive week to week, but I'll make an exception for Damages because it is a show that never got off the ground ratings-wise.

The third season premiered with a meager 1.428 million viewers, higher than the season two finale but lower than the season two premiere. As history tells, the viewers will drop off until the end of the season when there might even be less than a million viewers.

Damages is one of the most expensive shows on FX and it's ratings had been bad throughout the three seasons to say the least (with the exception of the beginning of the first season). Damages does get lots of critical success and has picked up a number of awards. With the ratings dropping, Damages may not be able to stay on air despite the quality of the show. Keep your fingers crossed!

Doubtful it will return. The only reason it came back for a third season was because FX ordered seasons 2 & 3 at the same time. If they had only ordered season 2 by itself, there would not BE a season 3. Too bad though. The show is amazing!
