Dallas J.R. Ewing Funeral RatingsMonday’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.

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.

  • I am 29 and my wife is 27. We have seen every episode of the original series of Dallas,all the movies, and the new Dallas. The new series writers and cast are spot on in continuing with the original series twists, turns, and and cliff hangers.

  • Just watched the two hour finale and the acting and plot lines were getting even better towards the end of the season. I am 61 and was a huge fan of the original series. I find this show to be better written and acted than any other series on TV right now. It would be a shame for it not to be renewed. Dallas is TNT’s best shot at competing with the major networks in my opinion.

  • Dallas and Monday Mornings are two of the best shows on Monday night. I loved the season finale on Dallas and I can’t believe TNT would cancel it. I watched Dallas in the 80′s, loved it and I love the new generation of Dallas. TNT have a season 3. After that finale there has to be another season. 2.5 million viewers agree for a season 3 and I am one of them. Listen to the viewers.

  • This show is the best on television. I watched the original Dallas and I loved this one as much. I think they have written a great story line and need to continue. I think it should run in the summer. I hate most other shows on television and do commit to watching this particular show. Please renew. Great cast.

  • Please don’t cancel Dallas! I was a little girl when the original series aired 20 + years ago, but by mom was a huge fan. Now that I am old enough to understand the family saga, I am completely addicted!! I will not know what to do with myself if the show is cancelled. There is so much junk on tv nowadays. Finally a show that has some depth; and you mean to tell us it is threatened to be cancelled! DON’T DO It. Do whatever it takes to bring it back for a 3rd season and many more to come!!!
