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 absolutely love the new Dallas! The show is very well written and is the best show on tv right now. I will miss JR, but I think the show will do well without him. JR wouldn’t want the show to end. Besides, there isn’t much on television anymore for mature audiences. Memo to the networks…”We hate reality tv shows!”

  2. Kuffs says

    It’s GREAT! I think the new actors are excellent! TNT and the writers keep it coming. Season 3, 4, 5,……keep it going!

  3. Ann says

    Love Dallas and so does my Dad!

    Please keep it on for season 3 . We still watch reruns of the original Dallas but love the new one!

  4. Kathy says

    We love this show. Every week gets there is more suspense and mystery. Love the story line and seeing the older actors weaved into the new generation. The younger cast is excellent also. Please keep this show going on!!!!!!!!!!!!!! We watch every episode and I think Season 2 is even better than Season 1.

    This is a great great show. It’s the fault of the network moving it to winter schedule from the summer. Please renew for a 3rd season its a great show

    I think that Dallas is picking up momentum. Year one was a good start but a little awkward. Year two continues to build. Bringing in the old cast periodically helps – Dallas has a rich history which they should mine a bit more but all told, I think it’s addictive. Ratings are a rough tool to use to determine interest – I have three things I like to watch on Monday – all at the same time – I definitely watch Dallas as a first priority or the next day with On Demand. I think it’s going to take the die-hard Dallas fans to yell, shout, e-mail, blog but mostly WATCH, to keep this going as it continues to improve – GUILT OR INNOCENCE – the best yet!

      Oh and yeah – is it just me or does Sue Ellen/Linda Gray look amazing – WOW! And Afton was no slouch on Monday!

    This show has great story writing, and actors just as the orignal. It just needs to build a larger audience, which could be done with maybe a new timeslot. Season 3 is a must.

    Keep Dallas on, but move it to a better time slot. There are some good actors on the show that have the ability to carry it forward – they just need to be given a fair change to play ball!
