Two of the questions I hear most often are: When is "Nip/Tuck" coming back to FX? And how about "Damages"?
FX has finally provided the answer. "Nip/"Tuck" returns for another season at 10 p.m. Tuesday, Jan.6. The guest list this season includes Sharon Gless, Portia de Rossi and Morgan Fairchild. Yes, Morgan Fairchild.
And "Damages," which stars Glenn Close, premieres the next night at 10 p.m. Wednesday, Jan.7. This season, William Hurt, Marcia Gay Harden and Timothy Olyphant ("Deadwood") have joined the cast.
These FX moves undoubtedly will make it more difficult for the broadcast networks to get more viewers to watch their 10 p.m. shows. This season, the ratings for 10 p.m. series on broadcast networks have fallen sharply.
