This will come as tremendous news for fans of TNT’s Dallas reboot! The primetime sudser has officially been renewed for a third season!

According to Deadline.com: TNT has ordered 15 episodes for the third season, which is slated to launch in early 2014. “Although we said goodbye to Larry Hagman and his iconic character J.R. Ewing this year, Dallas has many more stories left to tell, and the Ewing clan will continue to honor J.R.’s memory by keeping its audience surprised and delighted,” TNT’s head of programming Michael Wright said.

There was concern that after Dallas’ freshmen season where ratings were high, the show suffered ups and down in the ratings in season two that the Ewing clan might not see a third season! After a slow start in the new slot on Monday’s in season two, the show rebounded.  The episode in which Larry Hagman’s character J.R. was laid to rest drew 3.6 million viewers, rising to 4.9 million in Live+7. For the entire second season, Dallas has averaged 3.8 million viewers in Live+7, with 1.6 million adults 25-54 and 1.4 million adults 18-49.

So are you thrilled at the news that Dallas will continue in 2014?  Let us know!

DALLAS is one of the few series currently in production that is must-see for me, so I’m happy to hear it will continue. Such a long wait for the next new episode, though…!

Very happy this show is renewed for a 3rd season. This is a great show, very entertaining. Since this will be premiered in the summer, I’m sure the ratings will be better. This past season was on Monday nights during the winter, which faced more competition. I’m looking forward to seeing what’s up with the Ewings and new feuds.

Oops, just realized that it’s for first part of 2014, I remembered reading another article and it was originally predicted to be summer 2014. I’m sure the ratings will be good and looking forward to another exciting season.

Awesome news! I thought Dallas was on fire in Season 2, and even though the ratings weren’t as good as the first season, I’m glad TNT decided to keep it around. I just hate having to wait until 2014 to see what happens next, lol.

“Thank God” – “Amen”

The whole cast is delivering.

save for sometimes…. Jordana Brewster… but that could be because she’s obviously playing supporting act.

I’m happy! for Bobby – Sue Ellen – Cliff – have to acknowledge the stalwarts…. the younger brood is all the greater for them.

for the first time in a long time…. watching the whole cast ACT is easy to do.

Awesome news!!!

Looking forward to seeing John Ross return to his evil ways, and watching Christopher figuring out the only way to fight is to do it dirty.

Nope to dallas. The only soap from tnt worth watching is the NBA! Traditional soaps can’t compete w/ the drama and excitement from NBA games. Practically everything is reality tv now. And the NBA is reality tv that is real. The off court and on court drama! Trading between teams! Injuries affecting rosters! The trash talking between coaches and athletes. The hilarious fashion from NBA athletes! The competition between teams! These athletes are very talented and disciplined of course. They wouldn’t reach the elite level of competing at the NBA if they were not disciplined. It’s not like w/ actors where some of them make it bec they used to model and have the right look for roles. Some are related to a hollywood figure and use that to get roles. None of those factors matter w/ NBA. And that makes the NBA all the more entertaining and admirable. And the NBA is even more racially diverse compared to hollywood tv shows bec an NBA game is a tv show. The “leading men” of the NBA are majority African american. But of course there are white athletes and foreign athletes. There are Latino american athletes and the NBA has its Asian american athlete. The racial diversity from the NBA is superior to hollywood’s racial diversity bec sports is a meritocracy while “acting talent” is opinion based. The NBA is very soapy. And it’s at its soapiest now w/ the playoffs!

Yes I am enjoying the show , like to see someone brought in with that roughneck cowboy attitude like JR and his daddy had, but great show.

The writers have done a fantastic job in season 2! Love how the characters are developing. Great selection of music at the end of last show. JR was said to be “The man you love to hate” hope John Ross will be “The son we love to hate”. Looking forward to season 3. Keep up the good acting! Terrific selection of actors visiting and permanent. Thanks.

I can’t believe I will have to wait that long to see all my Dallas faves again. I adore Pamela and John Ross but can really root for the other characters like Ann, Emma, Sue Ellen, Bobby, Drew, even Bum.

Y&R and Dallas Alum, Oscar Winner George Kennedy Has Died

Photo Credit: WireImage

George Kennedy,  the Oscar-winning star of 1967’s Cool Hand Luke, which also starred Paul Newman has died at age 91, his grandson, Cory Schenkel confirmed.

Kennedy died in his sleep at his Boise, Idaho home early Sunday morning, the day of the Academy Awards.  He had been in failing health ever since his wife Joan died a little over a year ago. George had been under hospice care for the past month.

In the soaps, Kennedy is most remembered for his guest stints on The Young and the Restless playing Victor Newman’s despicable father, Albert Miller.  Kennedy first played the role in 2003 and then reprised it again in 2010.   Victor’s relationship with his father gave Eric Braeden some of the finest material of his career as the complex Victor.  Albert had abandoned his family, causing his son to be raised in an orphanage.

CBS original primetime soap Dallas also featured Kennedy as Carter McKay, one of the Ewing families bitter enemies from 1988 to 1991.  Geroge also played the role in two follow-up TV movies, 1996’s Dallas: J.R. Returns and 1998’s Dallas: War of the Ewings.  In addition, Kennedy appeared in several of the 70’s major disaster films including the original Airport and several sequels, as well as in Earthquake.  In the 80’s, he would appear in The Naked Gun franchise of films along with Leslie Nielsen.

After the jump, watch George Kennedy as Albert on The Young and the Restless in scenes with Eric Braeden and Joshua Morrow (Nick).  Then share your thoughts on the passing of this talented actor in the comment section below! (more…)

Courtesy/TNT

We all loved Josh Henderson’s portrayal of John Ross Ewing on TNT’s defunct revival of the classic primetime soap, Dallas.

Since Dallas was never able to find a suitable home at another network, Henderson had teased via social media some time ago that he had something big in the works.

Now it is revealed! On Friday, E! announced plans for its second scripted series following The Royals.  The new show is called The Arrangement and stars Henderson alongside Christina Evangelista. The story revolves around a young actress named Megan Morrison (Evangelista), who auditions for a huge summer movie alongside top Hollywood action movie star Kyle West (Henderson). When Megan’s audition leads to a first date with Kylie, she’s presented with a contract that could change her life forever. But will she accept The Arrangement?   Michael Vartan and Lexa Doig also star in the series.

On his official Instagram account, Henderson shared his enthusiasm for the reveal of his next role: “Been waiting for bout 4 months till it became official.. And So excited today cuz I can finally announce I’ve got a new show coming !! 1st season will be 10 episodes on E! More to come soon.” (more…)
