'Damages' in trouble

Bad news, "Damages" fans. It appears the only thing that might save the FX mystery/thriller show is a partnership with DirecTV, Entertainment Weekly reports on its Web site.

The deal with DirecTV, if it happens, would be similar to the current one with NBC's "Fright Night Lights."

For FX, it's a major blow, considering the critical acclaim the show, which stars Glenn Glose, garners during the Emmys. Glose has won two Emmys for her role as ruthless lawyer Patty Hewes.

Ratings, however, have been dismal for the show, and in this business, those numbers, for the most part, are what keep shows afloat.

"Damages" is currently in its third season. Whether it survives to a fourth season remains to be seen.
