USA Network TV series don’t earn the kind of Nielsen ratings we see from the broadcast networks. With a spin-off in the works, there are signs that the successful Suits series will end sooner rather than later, so the cabler could use another breakaway hit. Have they found it in Tony Tost’s Damnation TV show? Will it be cancelled or renewed for season two? Stay tuned.
A 1930s USA period piece, the first season of Damnation stars Killian Scott, Logan Marshall-Green, Sarah Jones, Chasten Harmon, Melinda Page Hamilton, Christopher Heyerdahl, Joe Adler, Teach Grant, Dan Donohue, David Haysom, Arnold Pinnock, and Rohan Mead. The heartland labor drama centers on Seth Davenport (Scott). Although he poses as a small town Iowa preacher, he is actually an incognito labor agitator. Seth’s goal is to incite an all out revolt against the status quo. Little does he know a captain of industry has hired professional strikebreaker Creeley Turner (Marshall-Green) to squash the insurrection at any cost. What’s more, Davenport and Turner have a history — one that’s dark and bloody. **Status update below.
The ratings are typically the best indication of a show’s chances of staying on the air. The higher the ratings, the better the chances for survival. This chart will be updated as new ratings data becomes available.

Note: These ratings are collected by the Nielsen company and are the final national numbers. These are different from the fast affiliate numbers which are just estimates of the actual ratings and are reported on by most other outlets. The final nationals are typically released within 24 hours of the programming or, in the case of weekends and holidays, a couple days later.
