What To Watch


October 20, 2007

Damages gets an all-day marathon today; its season finale airs Tuesday. While the intricately plotted legal thriller starring Glenn Close and Ted Danson has garnered a passionate following, the viewership has not been as sizable as FX had hoped, putting the show's return in doubt. But network executives promise there will be a satisfying conclusion. And one factor that could persuade FX to give the program a second shot: the possibility that the drama will rack up some major awards. (8 a.m.-8 p.m., FX)
