Dallas: Should the TNT Series Be Renewed for Season Three?

Dallas cancel or renewed for season 3?This evening, TNT airs the final two episodes of Dallas’ second season and, unlike the price of oil, the ratings have been down. Will the TV series return for a third season or will it be cancelled instead?

The new Dallas picks up several years after the original show ended. Time has passed but the Ewings and the Barnes are still at each others’ throats. And, though Larry Hagman passed away, there’s still plenty of drama at Southfork. The cast includes Patrick Duffy, Linda Gray, Josh Henderson, Jesse Metcalfe, Jordana Brewster, Julie Gonzalo, Brenda Strong, Mitch Pileggi, Emma Bell, Kuno Becker, and Judith Light.

Last season, the new Dallas was one of TNT’s most-watched dramas, averaging 4.42 million viewers and a 1.1 rating in the 18-49 demographic.

This time around, the ratings weren’t so hot. The second season has averaged 2.64 million with a 0.8 demo rating. The numbers spiked for the JR Ewing funeral episode but they went back down the following week.

While the ratings admittedly haven’t been as strong this time around, Dallas is still TNT’s best performing show right now. Both Monday Mornings and Southland have only been averaging about 1.4 million viewers.

The cable channel also knows that the show is facing a lot more competition at this time of year — compared to when the first season aired last summer.

While TNT hasn’t cancelled or renewed Dallas yet, it seems very likely that the Ewings will return for another round of in-fighting and deception.

What do you think? Would you like to see Dallas return? Is the show as enjoyable as it once was? Should TNT move it back to summer?

My wife and I love the show. We even went out and bought the dvd’s of the original.
The season 2 was more intriguing than season 1. We sure are wanting a season 3.

We have just loved this past season of “Dallas!” Too bad for the viewers who failed to pick up on this season. The writers have been EXCEPTIONAL in delivering each episode with jaw dropping twists and turns delivered by a very talented cast. We had to visit Southfork last week just to get a feeling for the ranch film location. We were not disappointed by guides that were there to answer all our questions and let us know how they loved working with the cast and crew. When they play the Dallas theme song, we turn up the sound and feel the pride of living in the great state of Texas! PLEASE, please bring it back for another season. And John Ross, you really are your father’s son.
