Dallas: Season One Ratings

TV ratings for Dallas on TNTCan the sons of J.R. and Bobby Ewing attract big ratings like their daddies once did with the original Dallas? On the new TNT series, there’s certainly more family fighting at SouthFork than ever before. The cast includes Josh Henderson, Jesse Metcalfe, Jordana Brewster, Julie Gonzalo, Brenda Strong, Larry Hagman, Linda Gray, and Patrick Duffy.

The TV show ratings are the best way to tell if Dallas will be cancelled or renewed for a second season. The first season of TNT’s Dallas airs Wednesday nights. There are 10 episodes.

The TV series may have debuted on the 13th but it certainly wasn’t an unlucky day for the cast and crew of Dallas. It was the most-watched TV show in its timeslot on both broadcast and cable. It had the best demo number at 9pm and, at 10pm, was tied for first place in the demo with a CSI rerun on CBS — the original Dallas’ network.


Cable ratings are typically released within a day or so of the show’s airing, except for in the case of weekends and holidays. They are sometimes harder to come by so there may be occasional delays or gaps.

What do you think? Do you like the new Dallas TV series? Do you think that it should be cancelled or renewed for season two?

    Love it, Love it, Love it!!!!!!!!!! I have watched them since I was a kid and re-watched them when I got older and could better understand it and my husband and I are so loving the new twisted and demented schemes. Can’t wait each week for it to come on. PLEASE DON’T CANCEL IT!

  2. Chris Calvin says

    Didn’t watch it then, ain’t going to watch it now. What are they going to do, shoot JR again? When will Hollywood put out something NEW. Let’s bring back I Love Lucy, or The Andy Griffith show, maybe Gomer Pyle USMC. Nothing new, all rehash, been done, reruns, remakes, ……I am sick of it.

      You definitely dont know what your missing! This is good T.V, not the crap that is mostly on like reality shows.

  3. Haidi Della Penna says

    I love every minute of it, I cant wait till next week. I used to watch Dallas when I was little. This one is even better. Keeps you sitting on the edge of your seat!!!!

  5. Valerie says

    I like the new show. I would like to see some of the older characters like Pam’s sister, the lifeguard who had an affair with Sue Ellen or Lucy’s ex husband. And what about Gary and Valene? What happened to JR’s original secretary? It would feel real seeing old cast members.

  6. Debbie says

    Love the new Dallas TV show! Thank you TNT! Can’t wait until next week. I’ve seen every episode of the original Dallas and this is just as good or maybe even better.

  7. Ash says

    Will definitely be watching all 10 episodes. That Christopher Ewing is just too hot to miss! And John Ross is just like his daddy.

    There are always new under-handed tricks at Southfork. I have all watched all three episodes twice, please renew! How did JR and Bobby get so old? They are both still magical. I love Annie as Bobby’s wife, what a breath of fresh air from Pam.

  9. Sk says

    Dallas is really good! The show started very strongly and does not disappoint. I do think it should be renewed!

  10. Stacey Larkin says
