Much like The Wire and Mad Men, critics rave about Damages, though a relative few actually watch it. Damages second season premiered to an underwhelming 1.8 million and a .5 rating among 18-49 year olds. Meanwhile, also on Wednesday night, according to James Hibberd, Top Chef averaged 2.9 million and a 1.6 rating with the 18-49 crowd. Also, TNT’s Meet the Browns premiered back-to-back episodes that averaged 3.9 million viewers.

The one hundred and fifty-first season premiere of MTV’s The Real World (ok, it’s only the 21st season) averaged 2.3 million and a 1.3 rating among 18-49 year olds, up 18% from last April.

Damages was off 44% from its season one premiere and 58% from the premiere of Sons of Anarchy according to Hibberd.

The series finale of Stargate Atlantis airs tonight at 9pm on SciFi. I’ve seen the episode and thought it a fitting finale, but as I’m not a fan of spoilers myself, you won’t find any here.
