It was a disappointing return for the folks at Southfork. The season premiere marked a series low in viewership and nearly matched a low in the demo.

Reference point: The first season of the new Dallas averaged a 1.1 rating in the 18-49 demographic with 4.42 million total viewers.

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 still like the new Dallas TV series? Are you hoping that it’s renewed for a third season?

    I don’t know what it is about this show, but it is so damn addicting. There is so much going that I can not wait to see what happens next. Keep this show going for a long time. Team Bobby

  2. Jay Ellis says

    Yes Dallas needs at least a 3rd season! They have many story lines included with the “old” Barnes-Ewing feud. I have been a fan since 1978 and many of us older ones have wished for someone who understood the original Dallas and could write a reboot of Dallas. Cynthia Cidre understands and has some tremendous episodes so we need a few more seasons of Dallas just for closure and to honor Larry Hagman!

  3. jeff says

    Give Larry Hagman the respect he deserves..This man lived 2 do this awesome show..please make him happy 2day and watch wat he yearned 2 do..play J.R.Ewing like no one can

  4. Carol Olley says

    We love dallas in the UK and as a child of the 80’s, its great to see JR and the Ewings back on screen. My 25 yr old daughter loves it and can’t wait each week. But Channel 5 in the UK have killed viewing figures by moving the show from 9pm-to 11pm-please please get them to change this as it is dire-so many people love this show-but have to work and can’t stay up that late-also Channel 5 Player is extremely poor-it has just taken me 2 1/2 hrs to watch the show becasue it kept freezing-please sell the show to another UK Channel who care-I remember when Dallas who shot JR had the largest ever UK viewing episode and the tapes were brought to the UK under armed guard!! . I can’t bear to think i will miss Larry Hagmans last episodes-I met him in real life in 2003 and he is an amazing guy-transplant recipient-please please don’t cancel and help us to get good access here in the UK. Thank you.

    I love the show too. It’s fast paced and keeps you engrossed the whole hour. It builds upon the old show perfectly. I think it may need to move back to Wednesday nights as it seems to do better there!!!!

    • Jay Ellis says

      Very good idea! It did seem to do better on Wednesdays! Get the TNT machine behind it and it will have great numbers

      • Kimmy says

        Yyyyyeeeesssss!!! I think ratings dropped when they moved it to Monday nights otherwise the show is excellent & I will watch it any night it’s on… There are few good shows on TV & this is one of them! Hope it goes to season 20, or 30 :). Like Patrick Duffy said ” he wants to play Bobby for another 15 years & why not!!!

    I love Dallas TNT. As a youngster I always watched original Dallas & remember being gutted when it ended. I’ve always said to people since then, they should bring it back or have a show like it. I was so chuffed to hear it was coming back & here it is. It has been updated to the 21st century & has the bones of the original series & more plot twists than a ride on the rapids. It is well written, acted & the cinematography is outstanding. Well done TNT. There needs to be more positive comments by people, press & media to promote Dallas and not the negativity I keep reading. In the UK, Channel 5, without warning moved it from 9pm to 11pm on a Tuesday evening, apparently due to low viewing figures. This decison was premature & ill concieved, as the premiere episode of season 2 had 1.24 million viewers and was equal fifth most watched programme on the channel. It needs to be moved back to 9pm, promoted properly & a lot more people will watch the trials & feuding of those Texan Ewings!.

  7. stewart zemsky says

    the new dallas is great the writing is tremendos.the way its done with new charaters and the old updating it 20 years later is brillant. I suggest the show be moved back to wednesday night at 9 pm where the ratings were a lot better.monday nights have to much competiton. i would hate to see the show canceled.

  8. beverley says

    I am loving the new Dallas, please keep it going. Not sure this one was advertised in advance enough. a lot of my mates who watched the last series did not know
    series 2 had even started.

  9. Pauline says

    Have been watching since the first Dallas aired! I watch the first generation and now hooked on the second generation. I am so sad for Larry Hagman’s death but the show must go on. Please keep Dallas going love it.

  10. dallasfan says

    love this show! hoping it goes for season 3! gotta keep larry hagman’s spirit alive! athough the show moves too fast and doesn’t allow build-up or time for viewer to invest in storyline/character…however excellent writing on Cynthia Cidre’s behalf bridging the old with the new..

  11. Stephanie says

    There better be a third season! I’ve started watching all the original Dallas shows too – I can’t get enough!

  12. Ryan S says

    Awesome show, I think it truly does what it should. It helps to tie the old series and the new together and I believe they are interwoven perfectly. Defiantly want to see more.

  13. Edward says

    Too much swearing and too many stupid “gotcha” plots. Pretty soon, the show will be attracting the “Lizard Lick Towing,” and “Hardcore Pawn” trashy audiences. It’s turning into typical tv crap!

    • says

      It could be worse!! It’s better then the other garbage on TV now a days. Smash and Dallas is the only decent shows to watch on TV now a days. I’m 21 a year old going on 22 who grew up with old TV shows reruns like I Dream Of Jeannie, I Love Lucy, Green Acres, Father Knows Best, and The Andy Griffith Show. So what if there is some swearing in it? Which show on TV doesn’t have some swearing and I dont think the show has anymore gotcha plots!! It’s keep it more thrilling and exciting and waiting for the next episode to find out what happens next. Even Patrick Duffy thinks the writing of the new Dallas is better and so does my mom who watched the original when it first came on with her mom who no longer living!! I dont like to hear swearing either but so what? I love old movies and My Fair Lady had more swearing in it then Dallas I think. Trust me I’ve been watching that movie since I was 4 or five and I know the whole movie by heart. How many times does Henry Higgins swear and use the word, “Damn!” At least five or ten times or more throughout the movie. My mom doesnt like cussing either but I do think they used some cussing in the original Dallas too. This is the 2000s and though I prefer the 50s to this generation, you’re not going to change any of the writers and producers from cutting down on the swearing only you form a protest which probably wouldnt go over so well. Just saying. :)
