Monday’s farewell to J.R. Ewing gave TNT’s Dallas a shot in the arm ratings-wise.
The emotional hour drew 3.6 million viewers, a 28 percent boost over last week’s episode and the show’s largest audience of the season.
In the target demos, the episode corralled 1.4 million adults 25-54 (up 26% vs. last week) and 1.1 million adults 18-49 (up 23%).
The impressive numbers are nonetheless a far cry from the nearly 7 million who tuned in for Dallas‘ premiere last summer.
TNT has yet to make a decision on renewing Dallas for a third season.
