    After months of negotiations, DirecTV has reached a deal with Sony Pictures Television to acquire Damages from FX. Under the terms of the pact, DirecTV’s 101 network will air two additional seasons of the drama—each consisting of 10 episodes—beginning in 2011.

    Unlike DirecTV’s arrangement with NBC for Friday Night Lights, Damages will only air on DirecTV.

    Cool deal though. I wish they would save King of the Hill. :D

    When I watched Damages I enjoyed it. Great cast and very well done. The problem was that at the end of each episode that I watched, I was not left with a "I can not wait until next week to see what happens" feeling. Maybe that is why it did not catch on. IMHO

    Excellent. My wife and I really like this show. The article says the 101 will air seasons 4 and 5 (10 episodes each). Have there been 3 seasons, and did I miss a season? Or is F/X going to air 1 more season? I only remember season 1 and 2.

    A dissenting vote or at least an "I don't care" from me.

    I watched the first season and part of the second. The myriad flashbacks just got too confusing to follow.

    This is the reason I quit watching after the first season. Not that I thought it was a bad show just a bit much for me to keep following.

    GREAT news. I love this show but the ratings were just GODAWFUL. I heard the rumors but I never thought DTV would actually rescue this show. The 101 is turning into a seriously good channel. Airing "The Wire" in widescreen HD, Friday Night Lights and now Damages.

    Sounds like it. Here's a listing of all three season's episodes: http://www.tv.com/damages/show/58333/episode.html?season=All&tag=list_header;paginator;All

    I remember them as the Ted Danson, William Hurt and Martin Short seasons.

    Those were 13 episodes each, BTW.
