Tate Donovan and Glenn Close in Damages by Larry Riley/FX Tate Donovan and Glenn Close in Damages by Larry Riley/FX

It's a bone, but hey, we'll take it. With the premiere of Damages' sophmore cycle still months upon months away, FX is offering up a marathon of the entire 13-episode first season, on Saturday, Aug. 9, starting at 7 am/ET. (Who else is praying for rain that day?)

Damages, which currently is slated for an "early 2009" return, grabbed much Emmy love a few weeks back, including a drama series nod, a best actress nom for Glenn Close, and a pair of supporting actor bids (for Ted Danson and Zeljko Ivanek). - Matt Mitovich
