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?

    Yes I want to see the series renewed-the writing is masterful, the blend of old cast with new is great.
    The younger performers have shown a real depth in their acting and Linda and Patrick have had some of the best scenes in their careers in this return to Dallas.

  2. Lala says

    Tnt totally blew it…the show did well in summer and the original time as the original Dallas. Plus, up against the Bachelor and DWTS? Return it to its original time or it will be gone.

  3. Harley Alderson says

    put the show back on wednsdays where it was doing great. putting on monday nights was a horrible mistake on tnt’s part its up against so much and the fact mondays are a day that people have other things to do other than watch tv

  4. Sophia says

    I love this new series, so much like the original. Defenately a season 3 & 4!. I do however believe pam ewing is dead. I think christopher will inherit her third of the company. I also remember the mentioning of katherine being dead but how? I dont recall her death in the original series. The only time she died was in pam’s ‘dream’. Curious to know how they will discover pam is dead or alive…love this show

  5. Dorothy says

    Yes I miss JR Ewing but I still love to watch Dallas. The new generation mixed with the old is a great combo. I am hoping for a season 3. Please don’t disappoint!

    I think that emma is really ‘pam ewing’, after extensive operations from the car explosion. I think she was hired by harris to pretend to be his daughter and fool ann. When ’emma’ had her car accident and left dallas, she. wa s bitter and now wants total control of barnes global. I emma will reveal herself too be pam soon…i also believe harris and his ‘mother’ are actually brother and sister

      That would be quite a feat, but I love your creativity. I’ve seen some crazy stuff on soap operas, but never an old woman (Pam) turned into a young woman (Emma), although John Ross and Christopher have been made younger than they should be. Maybe that could have been a story on Dark Shadows! I think it’s silly we are supposed to believe that Judith Light is old enough to be Harris’s mother, so you could be onto something there. I was thinking Harris could turn out to be a Ewing or a Barnes. They mentioned Digger the other day. Harris didn’t think too highly of him. If Harris is a Ewing, that means Emma has fooled around with her cousin. That wouldn’t be so strange, considering Lucy used to roll around in the hay with Ray before she knew he was her uncle. Funny how they never talked about that again! Love this show!

    I think the show must go on. I really am not a t.v. buff, but I really enjoy the actors. they are great. I hate it that J.R. or Larry is gone I am a old fan from back when it first was on in the 70’s. I didn’t think it would hold my attention , but it did and I have a bipolar problem ad I am A.D. H. D and it keeps me focused and want to stay in my seat. SO I Say Don’t get rid of the show. It’s rather good!!!! I think keeping Patrick is a good thing. I meant him back in the 80’s and thought he was a very nice person plus a wonderful actor and Sue is great As Well. Great cast if you ask me. God Bless you Larry , but the show must go on

    I watch this show every week and really enjoy it. Tonight I noticed the first product placement (Miller Lite). I hope that’s not a sign of desperation. I would love to see a season three. I was originally hoping that the ratings for the new Dallas would be so good that they would also try an updated Knots Landing. Knots was so good and would make a great series again even. This version of Dallas feels like a cross between the two shows. It has the family battles and corporate intrigue of Dallas but with a more heartwarming style, like Knots had. Sadly, I think prime time soap operas today will naturally have a hard time competing with all the self-contained story procedurals on the air. The premium channels have been successful with serial story telling, but they have huge budgets. It’s very hard to get people to tune in week to week to watch a story unfold today without some time of a gimmick. In today’s Prime-Time TV landscape, Dallas doesn’t fit in with any other style of show. It’s strictly a soap opera. It’s not a soap opera/medical drama. It’s not a soap opera/police procedural. It’s not a soap opera/big budget period piece. It’s not a soap opera/humorous satire. It’s just a soap opera. I say this not to condem it, but to point out why I think the ratings are low. I hope I’m wrong and people will see it as something that’s not just anything. I want to see keep seeing these characters for several more years.

    Yes please keep it on for a third season. But put it on a TV station that everyone can get.
    Like 2 or 7 or 9 or 12

    • KansasGuest says

      IMO, DALLAS has done great against the broadcast networks in a season when it’s going up against new episodes of more popular shows, awards season, and sports events like March Madness. It has the same ratings RIZZOLI & ISLES did during the summer without all that competition. So, that’s actually very impressive. Since R&I is now on its 4th season, I hope TNT takes that into consideration and also renews DALLAS…only this time putting it back in the summer where it won’t be lost in the shuffle. LOVE DALLAS!

  10. Jackie says

    Please, Please bring Dallas back for a 3rd season,
    Only don’t wait so long this time for season 3. You will start to loose your audience. Love this show!!!
