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?

    Please, bring Dallas back. The cast, outstanding and I believe the writers can come up with another villain to step in and do what Larry Hagman did or more. Dallas is the best thing on television.

    YES>>> YES>>> YES. DALLAS..I waited to watch each week to see what would happen next on Monday nights…I even watched the reruns during the week…I have really gotten interested in the drama..so many of the new shows are so dull, and the comedies are foolish… I put aside all that I am doing to watch this exciting and captivating show… do not deprive all of us..I even gave up the Monday version of DWTS to watch this… Let us at least keep something good, and full of life…No more talk shows, and foolishness…Give us good shows with a story line and decent dialogue… I hate Southland…too, much profanity, and sometimes boring stories… Monday Morning was starting to grow on me and was well written and well cast…Some of us are over 45 and still are watchers…We are your more reliable audience…We are not hunting partners, or party nights…We are faithful..Think about us … We’ll give you ratings , if you give us something worth rating…Thanks
