Damages (FX): Ratings Recap

FX's 'Damages' premiered July 24, 2007 to a 0.9/3 adults 18-49 rating and 3.66 million viewers, and despite rising in the demo in its second week (to 1.0/3), it lost about 600K viewers to 2.93 million. It slowly continued losing viewers throughout its first season, falling as low as 1.16 million, but ended up averaging just under 2 million and was renewed for a second season. The second season premiered in January 2009 to a solid 1.72 million viewers, but fell nearly 1 million viewers in its first two weeks, down to 761,000 by week 3. From then on, it remained fairly stable the rest of the season, averaging about 956,000 viewers and a 0.3 in the demo. A third season premiered in January 2010 and pulled virtually identical numbers as the second season among viewership (down only slightly to 928,000), but lost a bit among adults 18-49 (0.2 in the demo). A fourth and fifth season of the show aired on DirecTV's Audience Network which is not rated by Nielsen.
