The wait is over! Tomorrow night, Monday January 28th ( at 9PMEST/8PMCST on TNT), kicks-off the second season of the Dallas reboot, and with it all the drama, backstabbing and double-crossing, plus all the heat at Southfork! Monday’s episodes also begin the countdown to Larry Hagman’s final episode as the iconic villain J.R. Ewing!

Dallas begins its new season with a special two-hour premiere, and in the second episode, Daytime Emmy and Tony winner, Judith Light debuts as Harris Ryland’s mama in which she said to be even more vindictive than her on-screen son played by Mitch Pileggi!

In fact, in the latest issue of TV Guide on newsstands now, they revealed: “Early in the season, Ryland opens is home to his diabolical mother”.  Pileggi described to TVG his Oedipal relationship with his mom as “about as weird and creepy as you can get,” with one scene finding Light tending to her hospital-bed-bound son with too much affection!

Now after the jump, we have a mini spoiler-alert! We have provided the tune-in information for the two-hour premiere! If you don’t want to read it, you can skip it and go right to the newest Dallas teaser promo below for the season opener! Then let us know, what you are most excited about when Dallas starts up tomorrow night?  Are you looking forward to seeing Judith?

Hour One – “Battle Lines” – Monday, January 28, 9 p.m. ET/PT

The battle for Ewing Energies heats up as Christopher and John Ross clash over opposing visions for the company. As Christopher seeks to gain the upper hand in his divorce from Rebecca Sutter, a game-changing revelation turns everything on its head, causing the entire family to put their differences aside and rally together — except for John Ross, who uses J.R.’s dirty little tricks to take revenge on Christopher and Elena. Meanwhile, Ann is blackmailed by her ex-husband, Harris Ryland, forcing her and Bobby to confront a shocking secret from Ann’s past.

Hour Two – “Venomous Creatures” – Monday, January 28, 10 p.m. ET/PT
With Christopher and Bobby at the helm of Ewing Energies, and Elena working to gain a stronger foothold within the company, J.R. and John Ross strike a deal to wrestle control of Ewing Energies away from them. Meanwhile, Pamela Rebecca Barnes schemes with John Ross to take half of Christopher’s shares in Ewing Energies to fulfill her father’s desire for revenge against the Ewings. And Ryland’s mother, Judith, (guest star Judith Light) proves to be just as evil as her son.

Love Judith Light and already loved Dallas! BRING IT ON!!!

Finally something to watch on Monday’s nights — can’t wait.

I can NOT wait. BEST primetime show in years…..I believe TNT is doing last season during the day for those who want to start watching.

Love Judith Light, but she does not seem old enought to play the mother of Harris.

I was thinking the same thing – maybe they should have made them brother and sister instead, but I’m still so excited for this season to start already!!

I thought so too.
Judith Light is too young to play Mitch Pileggi’s mother.
But we’ll see.

Horrible casting – they should have been brother and sister.

I can’t wait to see how Judith’s character plays into this. It’s going to be interesting.

I can’t wait for Season 2 tonight!! Big fan of Judith Light’s 🙂

I have to be reading this wrong. Judith Light playing Ryland’s mother???? She is THREE years older than he is. This is pushing the limit even for a soap. Major turn off & I am as big a Dallas fan as they come. Haven’t watched tonight yet but DO NOT like this.

Loved the episodes! So glad it’s back!

What an opportune time for Harris to “man” up… step up to the plate… and “mirror” JR’s quality(s)…. The guy you loved to hate….

Dallas… relationship between JR and Bobby… cannot be matched…

Anns ex…. Harris… caught on immediately… as a potential “bad” guy…. his scenes with Ann and Sue Ellen, and Bobby were on par.

imagine if Harris got to Sue Ellen… he’d be a figure in Anns life… and nemesis for Bobby…

he’s already an established character from season 1… this would lessen the blow, if you will… on the dearly departed Mr. Hagman.

It was FABULOUS, and Judith fit right in. I am going to love seeing her take swings at the Ewings. Lol

Watch the show last night- love it. So many twists and turns, double dealings and secrets revealed- a jam packed two hours. Thought Judith pulled off being the matriarch of the Ryland clan beautifully. Looking forward to next week-

It always amazes me how much of a womanizer and manipulator John Ross is. In the first 10 minutes he’s already charmed the pants off of a woman that is getting married and turns out to be the daughter of the man who owns the truck fleet he wants to buy. I shouldn’t even be surprised that he’s still trying to get back at Christopher and Elena. My DISH co-worker says that J.R. is just fueling the fire by reminding John Ross that the “other” side of the family is always against him. I’m just excited about the drama this season and I’ve got my DISH Hopper set to record the newest episode of the show while I’m away from home. With the Hopper I can take advantage of the large hard drive which will let me record up to 2,000 hours of my favorite TV shows and movies anytime I want. That way I can watch TV on my terms.

Love,love,love Dallas!!watched it years ago and it is still the best!!! What a surprise to see Judith Light!! She plays a great evil character. I agree with others that she’s too young to be playing a 60 year olds mother!!! Can’t wait to see upcoming episodes!!!

Lifetime’s ‘Ladies of the ’80s: A Divas Christmas’ Brings Epic Food Fight and “Slapfest Coup de Grâce”

Get ready for the feuding soap opera divas, when five actresses known for their signature primetime and daytime roles are brought together in Lifetime’s new holiday film, Ladies of the ’80s: A Divas Christmas.

Saturday night, December 2nd on Lifetime (8pm ET/7PM CT) marks the highly-anticipated holiday movie premiere featuring: Donna Mills (ex-Knots Landing), Nicolette Sheridan (ex-Knots Landing), Morgan Fairchild (ex-Falcon Crest et al), Linda Gray (ex-Dallas) and Loni Anderson (ex-WKRP in Cincinnati).

Here’s what we do know! In story, five alums from the long-running soap, The Great Lakes reunite for a live Christmas finale. Uh-oh!  Now take a look at the backstory of the colorful cast of characters (pay special attention to the clever twists on the actresses names!)

LAUREN EWING (Linda Gray) “Everyone thinks I’m so damn good all the time,” confesses the junk food-loving Lauren of her second act as a lifestyle guru. “I don’t know how Gwenyth Paltrow does it!”

DANA CUNNINGHAM (Donna Mills) Now a sitcom mom, she’s yet to make amends to ex-bestie Juliette after abruptly leaving the soap back in the day. Not that she hasn’t tried: “When I thought the world was going to end in Y2K,” Dana says, “I reached out to her, and she never called me back.”

LILY MARLOWE (Loni Anderson) After replacing Dana on ‘Great Lakes’, Lily never again found a role to win her acclaim. “What do I have to show for (my career)? An arc on  For the People – Shonda Rhimes’ only flop!”

JULIETTE MATHESON (Nicollette Sheridan) “She left me for L.A.,” the party girl turned fashion mogul recalls of Dana’s betrayal. Will their feud derail the entire event?

MARGEAUX ROBERTS (Morgan Fairchild) “Fasten your face-lifts, ladies, it’s gonna be a bumpy weekend!” The sassy grande dame of ‘Great Lakes’ sees the Juliette-Dana beef as the perfect escape from her own domestic drama.

Now, making this all the more hysterical is the director of The Great Lakes reunion special, which makes the five women live under the same roof, is its former child star Alex, who has gotten his ex-girlfriend, Nell to direct the finale. Meanwhile, in the subplot. the ‘Ladies of the ’80s’ come up with a plan to get Alex and Nell back together.

As with any good soap opera, there is a major food fight. Linda Gray shared with USA Today ,”The food fight was one take. And it was fabulous.” And of course, their is a bitch-fest slap-fest. Morgan Fairchild revealed, “Oh honey, we all got ours in. Mine was a simple, ‘How dare you?’ with a slap. But I was hoping for a punch.”

The movie’s EP, Larry Thompson, who is a Hollywood manager and has Donna Mills as a client, said that the entire scene peaks with the”slapfest coup de grâce.” What is that exactly? That is when Donna Mills pushes Nicollette Sheridan into a pool in a nod to Dynasty’s Lily bond battle between Dynasty’s Alexis (Joan Collins) and Krystle (Linda Evans).

In case you missed it previously, check out the trailer for Ladies of the ’80s: A Divas Christmas below, also starring Patrika Darbo, Alec Mapa, Mills real-life daughter, Chloe Mills, and Christopher Atkins with theme song by Tiffany.

Now let us know, will you be tuning in to the movie for a premise that should delight many a longtime soap fan? Share your thoughts in the comment section.
