See, there was more than came out of the 2013 SAG Awards than just big-name actors winning awards; we also got a brand-new tease at the upcoming season 2 premiere of “Dallas.” The show is returning to the air on Monday night for what will be the grand farewell to Larry Hagman as J.R. Ewing, and we anticipate it being an especially emotional send-off for those who have seen his character grow since the original show’s beginning.
While this is surely going to be a sad moment for the drama, TNT is making a bold move in its advertising and not just trying to create the impression that we are in for a sappy several episodes. Rather, there will be scandal, drama, intrigue, people sleeping with surprising men and women, and of course greed running amok. This is the sort of stuff that “Dallas” has really been known for, and Hagman would not want it any other way.
So what sort of ratings will the show pull now? This is one of the questions that we are most curious about, as it was a very bold move to take a show that was doing well in the summer, and suddenly move it to the colder months. “Dallas” will be up against the likes of “The Bachelor,” “2 Broke Girls,” “The Following,” and “The Biggest Loser,” which is far more network competition than it had during season 1. Ewing’s funeral will be aired on March 11, and it would be a stunner if this is not the most-watched episode of the revival’s history.
