The new TNT runaway hit series, Dallas is back with its third episode ( following last weeks two-part season premiere) with its next installment titled “The Price You Pay!”

Here is the lowdown: Just as John Ross sets out to claim his birthright and make his father proud, J.R. decides to move back to Southfork, much to Ann’s dismay.  Bitter Ewing family enemy Cliff Barnes (guest star Ken Kercheval) returns and tries to reconnect with his nephew, Christopher.  A startling family announcement offers an opportunity to heal old wounds.

Watch a great teaser of the new episode and the new season of Dallas  that originally aired right after last week’s season premiere after the jump, and let us know what you are looking forward to most when the series continues tonight!

I am LOVING new Dallas!! I would like to see more of Sue Ellen. Welcome back Cliff Barnes and his portrayer, Ken Kercheval. I’ll bet he’s never gotten over Sue Ellen… and he did seem just a little angry last night. Maybe a roll with SE and news that JR is up and about will stir some ire. Just saying.

I loved seeing Ken Kercheval’s Cliff Barnes! He was and will always be my favorite Dallas character. I hope he becomes a major player on the new Dallas. I’m really enjoying the new show. I love the old and new characters.

Dallas is good isn’t it? I am really surprised most of the old shows that they bring back never work out but dallas was good it’s like we never left South Fork, And having all the originals with the new characters are perfect. Can’t wait till Wednesday.

Love to see Cliff Barnes on the show. He looks good but his bad teeth are SO distracting. If he is supposed o be wealthy on the show then he doesn’t fit the part with rotten teeth!

Agreed. They are disgusting. Wealthy men in Dallas are very looks conscious and with the amazing plastic and oral surgeons in town it does not make sense. He looks like a cadaver that was dug up 20 years after being buried.

‘Dallas’ star Ken Kercheval Dead At Age 83

Sad news to report for fans of the iconic primetime soap, Dallas.  Ken Kercheval, who played the thorn in J.R. Ewing’s (Larry Hagman) side, Cliff Barnes, has passed away.   The actor was 83 and died at his home in Indiana on Sunday.   The cause of death is under wraps.  He had been previously open about being a lung cancer survivor after years of smoking.

Kercheval was on Dallas for its entire run on CBS from 1978 to 1991, and returned to the TNT reboot from 2012 to 2014 to reprise his signature role.

On Dallas, Cliff Barnes was always the perennial loser when he went toe to toe with ruthless J.R, but in the final season, Cliff beats J.R at his own game and takes over Ewing Oil.  Cliff was also hopelessly in love with Sue Ellen Ewing (Linda Gray) and was the brother to Pam Barnes, played by Victoria Principal.

As for Ken’s first big acting breaks, that came on daytime soap operas when early in his career he appeared on Search for Tomorrow and How to Survive a Marriage.

Later, he appeared on episodic dramas such as Starsky & Hutch, and Crossing Jordan.  His final role was in a movie, 2019’s Surviving in L.A. said to be a comedy/drama in which he plays the business manager of a former teen sitcom star who trashed her life through drug abuse and is fresh out of rehab.

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.
