Will DALLAS Return For A Third Season? Patrick Duffy Believes So!



With so-so ratings for its second season and amidst the passing of Dallas’ central star Larry Hagman (J.R.),  many long time fans have found it extremely appealing and riveting!

In a piece out from the New York Daily News, series star Patrick Duffy addresses the ratings lag, but that the show is really stronger than ever relating,  “A network like TNT and Warner Brothers look at the trend. … They are ecstatic with what ‘Dallas’ is doing and as long as we continue that in the demographics of 18-40, we are their golden child.”

In addition Duffy believes the show will even get better in its third season ratings,  “The summer is the perfect time on cable television because none of the other networks are premiering anything.”  As Dallas fans know, the second season launched this winter, while the first season reboot launched in the summer.

Sources also told the NY Daily News that executives at TNT were “nervous that show icon Larry (J.R.) Hagman’s death in November combined with subpar ratings could spell trouble.”

OK, Dallas fans, do you think the series will have a third season?  If so, what do you think would help increase ratings to ensure its staying power?  Share your thoughts below!

    YES! I love the pacing of the storylines and with Pam coming back (whoever plays her, it doesn’t matter…. they can recreate flashbacks with Margaret Michaels if they have to) it will great. She was very believable in those 1988 clips… she can do the job if she gets it. That character is pivotol with Cliff and Pamala # 2 .. and with another generation of a barnes/ewing couple.. we need that first generation couple back! it’s perfect!
    I love the pacing of these storylines.. much better….moves faster…Cynthia is doing an awesome job!

      ITA. Dallas is better than ever & deserves a third season! Please renew Dallas, TNT! I want to see more. Loving Sue Ellen being in power at Ewing Energies, loving the chemistry between John Ross and Pamela – those two are sizzling! Loving the Pam references – I would love a Pam recast. This show is in fire right now. Must have a third season!

        i have always watched the old Dallas episodes with ms Elle , and i have started watching the new ones with the grownup boys. hated the fact that we lost JR, but we still have Bobby, and Sue Ellen, so lets make the 3rd season happen waiting to see

      Can Pam (Victoria Principal) not return to the show as other past Dallas actors have done?

      I love Dallas as much if not more than the old series. I hated to see it end and couldnt wait to see it each week. I sure hope there will be a third season, if not , it sure did end odd.

    Dallas must have a third season! It’s too good not to. I would move it back to Wednesday nights like it was on season one.

      April 11, 2013 at 7:49 am

      I agree!! But either night I plan on watching it again next season, I love this show!! Even more now than it’s earlier years.

    It should definitely come back in the summer so it’s not competing with a million other shows.

    I definitely hope it comes back. I did not watch the original series but have grown to love this one. Please TNT!!!!!!!!!!!!! It’s a great show.

    Its one of my few primetime favorites…its gotta return for another season!

    Patrick Duffy must come back to b&b! I wish he could at least manage to play in both shows!

    • Cathy4017

      April 22, 2013 at 2:38 pm

      IMO, Patrick Duffy just never did fit at B&B, especially paired with Alley Mills (Pam). She’s a total goofball, even though they need to find someone else for her.

    Loving having Dallas back. Miss Larry Hagman, but show is still very riveting and both my husband and I hope that it will continue. I believe it has a fan base from both the baby boomer generation as well as the current generation of young people.

  10. Jeff

    April 10, 2013 at 11:39 am

    I think it’s been fantastic! The younger cast has been great, not just the vets. It deserves to be renewed.

      I agree with Jeff!

      I also agree with Jeff. I watched the original show and my daughter (19) both love the new show.

    April 10, 2013 at 11:54 am

    YES to a a season 3. The show is so good. I can’t wait to hear its been renewed so we can all relax about it!!

    April 10, 2013 at 12:09 pm

    I love Dallas, just the music makes me feel better..Larry Hagman will definately be missed but the writers are smart keeping him in storylines constantly..I loved the original & the new one..I think this is what TV programmers need to look at..people love continuing stories & drama & good writing..not a bunch of reality nonsense..

    • gloria

      April 10, 2013 at 7:44 pm

      From one Gloria to another-yes the music when it comes on excites me to no end & takes me back baby! LOVE DALLAS. Miss Larry Hagman-cannot believe he is gone. Dallas must live on for him. We cannot wait to watch every week.

    I was a huge fan of the original Dallas and I have become a huge fan of this Dallas. The acting and writing is excellent. This is the best show to come along in years. I hope it stays around as long as its predecessor.

    • Debby

      April 10, 2013 at 4:27 pm

      I agree completely!! I love it!!

      April 10, 2013 at 11:25 pm

      I agree also! Loved the original and love this one! Please continue with another season!

        I also watched the original..I enjoy just listening to the opening music as well. the story line is fantastic..having John ross take over in his daddies footsteps. Having Bobby step up into the big boy shoes..I really hope Dallas is renewed for a 3rd season. Best show on tv

      • Danny

        April 25, 2013 at 8:02 pm

        Dallas is the best show on tv. TnT has not done a great job of advertising the show, If CBS had jumped on this for round two of Dallas It would have been just as strong as in the eighties. TNT is missing the boat with a potential gold mine. Come on TNT figure out how to get the word out that this show is the real deal and bring it back for many more seasons. I have watched this since the beginning and was so happy for the return. I look forward to this show every week and will be very dissapointed if I have to give it up.

    • Terra

      April 11, 2013 at 5:14 am

      Ditto! This Dallas is fast paced and the actors of this new generation are excellent. Wondered if there could be a Dallas without Larry Hageman but I believe the cast they have will keep Dallas the show it was and is now. Please TNT keep it going!

    • Sharon

      April 11, 2013 at 2:40 pm

      I agree also. Loved the original and love this one! The pace of the storyline is awesome, you sure don’t have to wait for things to happen!

    • Janice

      April 22, 2013 at 5:55 am

      It IS the best show on television. I wish more viewers would give it a chance. The writing is absolutely fascinating. I absolutely LOVE the new Dallas!

      I agree 100%!!!

  15. James McDonald

    April 10, 2013 at 12:39 pm

    Season 2 of the new Dallas was much better and improved over the first season. I liked that Audrey Landers and Deborah Shelton returned. Hey, even Lee Majors did a couple episodes. I stopped everything to watch him. The story so far is finding “Pam Ewing” and if Victoria Principal would have returned that would have brought the ratings up, but she has turned down the offer. I suggested on the internet Teri Hatcher could play “Pam”. The mystery woman could be “Pam”. Some think it may be Morgan Brittany as “Katherine Wentworth”.
    I would like Lee Majors to return in Season 3 to help the Ewings.
    I would like to see Priscilla Presley return as “Jenna Wade” to offer some comfort to Bobby.
    I would like Audrey Landers to return. She sure was a scene stealer in Season 2 and her character was a hot pistol.

    • Mark Cairns

      April 10, 2013 at 5:00 pm

      James has summarized pretty much every I thought about this season.

      It would be a travesty for TNT to dynamite it out of existence, especially on the, uh “cliff” hanger.

    • Vicki

      April 11, 2013 at 9:08 am

      Oh wow, would love to see Priscilla Presley come back as Jenna Wade. Give Bobby’s wife a run for her money! lol

    I so hope so.

  17. Don

    April 10, 2013 at 1:10 pm

    I hope it comes back. I agree it should be on in the summer. And let’s go for at least 20 episodes. It is definitely “must see” tv for me!

  18. emtk

    April 10, 2013 at 1:55 pm

    I am amazed at how good the new Dallas is. They have done a phenomenal job! I can’t wait to see each episode. I really hope there is a 3rd season!!

  19. Philippe Maarek

    April 10, 2013 at 1:56 pm

    Dallas deserves a 3rd season at no doubt !!! Actors are excellent mostly Josh Henderson within the new generation .
    GRAY and DUFFY Are just AMAIZING and has never been that good in the early days from 78 till 91!!

    Linda was as its best in episode 8 when she entered JR s bedroom looking and searching for him and remenbering these days…drinking…. For that particular scene she deserves an Emmy,Golden G or what so ever… i loved too DUFFY s :”I love you brother” Linda Gray is just AMAIZING in everything she is ..

  20. Philippe Maarek

    April 10, 2013 at 2:07 pm

    Please GO TNT for a 3rd Dallas season… To be aired in summer 2014.. This way no useless cliffhangers to wait for season 4 and beyond!……..U have the audience … just air it right…..and believe us all CIDRE is doing just a great job!!!….. Now at everyone request and expectation s have some breakfast patios back with some good old JR JOCK and ELLI be aise from where they are they CAN just see and approve!…..!….!!!!!!

    As a 42-year-old man who watched “Dallas” from the day it premiered in April of 1978 until it ended in May of 1991, I can easily say it is my No. 1 fave TV show of all-time (and I’m a TV junkie).

    But I completely lost interest after the third or fourth episode in this revamped version. Just didn’t have the same pop that the original had.


    • Debby

      April 10, 2013 at 4:25 pm

      I’m suprised you feel that way.. I personally didn’t think it could ever be as good as the orginal Dallas, but I have to say I was plesently suprised! I love it!!

      • Cindi

        April 10, 2013 at 11:29 pm

        I am surprised too! I also watched all episodes of the original and I think this one is just as good. They have done an excellent job of casting John Ross, Christopher and the new Pamela Barnes. I look forward to every Monday evening!

    • Barbara

      April 11, 2013 at 3:20 am

      I’m not surprised by Joshua’s response. I completely agree with him. Compared to the original, this version is lacking.

    • Vicki

      April 11, 2013 at 9:12 am

      I loved the original Dallas and I was a bit wary of a reboot. I liked the first season, but season 2 has definitely turned it up. Really good season and I’m enjoying the Ewings actually getting along with one another to fight outsiders rather than each other! 🙂

    • Kris

      April 12, 2013 at 12:40 pm

      I too watched every episode of the original Dallas and absolutely love the new Dallas! The only thing I don’t like is having to wait a whole week to see what is going to happen next! If they bring back Pam I hope it’s not Victora Principle, she’s not a very good actress.

  22. j.q

    April 10, 2013 at 2:24 pm

    i think a third season would be worth it but prelonging it further would make the series a bit tired looking it would have to be top class for that to happen but i dont think the mordern dallas will last more than two years as hagman will always be remember as jr

  23. c.t.

    April 10, 2013 at 2:26 pm

    I’ve gotten so hooked this season, never got into the younger set first year, but now I’m loving both ages groups.

    wish it had started a year earlier so Larry Hagman would’ve been around two whole seasons but glad he got to come back at all.

    I think it would be good if Bobby and John Ross become closer, a little on the gray side of things and Christopher and Pam get in conflict with them (still think Victoria Principal will return?? maybe, and if she won’t I’d cast Jaclyn Smith in a minute.)

  24. Jacque

    April 10, 2013 at 3:17 pm

    This season and the passing of Larry Hagman has not missed a beat. I hope there is a third season. I am an avid fan.

  25. Cathy

    April 10, 2013 at 3:19 pm

    I was a fan of the first Dallas, but this one is by far a great return, I would be very disappointed if it didn’t go one for several more seasons, LOVE!! LOVE!! LOVE!! Should have the attention of several age groups..

  26. Judy Battles

    April 10, 2013 at 3:28 pm

    I think Dallas is one of the best shows on television! I love this show. I was always a fan of Dallas since its beginning. It is so great to see the actors from the past, but also the new actors. It is action packed…you never know which way things are going to turn…it is full of surprises and suspense. I think it is so sad that Larry Hagman will not be part of this…but the show is still great…and they continue to honor his memory and carry out things in his name! Love John Ross and Christopher…..and Bobby is as great as always! Ryland makes me want to punch the screen…as well as Cliff Barnes! lol Please don’t cancel this show!!!!

  27. April Ryder

    April 10, 2013 at 3:32 pm

    Love the show! My family is addicted to it! It has to have a 3rd season! Please keep it going….full of twists and turns!

    i don’t see why the ratings are down? I love the show and look forward to watching it every week…i love the story lines and some of the episodes shown were better than some of the original episodes i think the writers for this show is brilliant….on the edge of my seat every week, please renew it!

  32. Jo

    April 10, 2013 at 3:54 pm

    Well, we survived the passing of Jock and Miss Ellie, so we can survive this. I’m hooked on this one, as I was the first Dallas. Keep it on! My 31 year old son never watched the first one, and he’s hooked on this one as well. It’s given us something to watch together at times, and it’s great. Mother and son……watching Dallas. Can’t beat it.

    I was not a fan of the show before.Who shot JR I didn’t care. have always loved Bobbie and now he has to get tough. It would have been fun if John R osswas sweet and good like Bobbie and Christopher was like JR Scheming and just evil enough.No one beat JR.
    I like the show and I watch it every week even going so far as to changing the channel from Dancing with the stars for it.
    The Ewing’s together should be able to take on these little schemers.

    I’d like to see more elegance at Southfork, it just looks like a big ranch ol’ ranch. Spruce that place up for God’s sake, those folks are rich and can afford it. It looked more classy in the 70’s.

    We need a third season of Dallas. I’ve watched it since 1978 and it was always my favorite show. The new one is great. Wonderfull storylines and the writing is terrific. I still feel like JR is still there with the flashbacks and his picture everywhere. Keep it going!!!

  36. Vickie

    April 10, 2013 at 4:20 pm

    Please come back for a 3rd season, it’s the only good show on right now with the drama that I like, just like the old Dallas. I have always loved Bobby and Sue Ellen, they really make the show. John Ross and Pamela are a hot item, and add a lot of heat to the show. Larry Hagman will always be missed by me, and I like the fact that they show pictures of him, so it really is like he is still there, in spirit and photos. Please come back for a 3rd season, and I agree about moving it back to Wednesday night if possible.

  40. Debby

    April 10, 2013 at 4:28 pm

    I thought Dallas would be a disappointment because I didn’t feel it could be as good as it was the first time.. I loved it when it came out in the late 70s. I couldn’t wait to watch it each week. Now, I feel just as excited. I can’t wait to watch it. It is fantastic. It’s wonderful they brought it back. It was around for years the first time. It will be around for years this time. It’s rare to like the new characters as much as you did the original. I’m so happy they pulled it off.

    As a loyal fan of the original series, I am beyond thrilled with this reincarnation.

    It is a shame that the season will end next week, to be sure!

    April 10, 2013 at 5:49 pm

    Yes I certainly hope that Dallas returns for a third season. The new Dallas has not lost a beat. They still have you on the edge of your seat with all of the cliffhangers. I love it.John Ross is a chip off the old block. I like how Sue Ellen has become a force to be reckon with. Bobby is wonderful. I will always be a LOYAL fan.

  50. Cindy Shaft

    April 10, 2013 at 6:10 pm

    I watched The 1st Dallas & LOVED IT. I have all the seasons on dvd & have started buying the 1st season of the NEW Dallas. It is already that good that you want to add it too your collection. The second season is just as GREAT as the third season will be. The actors are doing a GREAT job. It would be nice if Victoria Principal did come back but the team of actors that they have can survive without her because they have a GREAT story line. PLEASE KEEP IT GOING!!!!! The world is still waiting to watch, this DALLAS!!!

  53. Steph

    April 10, 2013 at 6:13 pm

    The best show…EVER!! I am having withdraw already till it comes back and we haven’t even seen the finally!!
    The Ewings will conquer!..I hope!

  54. deb

    April 10, 2013 at 6:16 pm

    Loved the original, was thrilled when I found out about the new one…have watched since day one and love it! I think one ratings problem may be that there are still a lot of people who don’t even know that it is on! I have one friend who knew it was coming on but figured it wouldn’t be any good…then 2 weeks ago she decided to watch the first season on Netflix and was hooked from the first episode. The word just needs to be spread. TNT PLEASE bring it back for a third season…and fourth…fifth…you get the idea!!

  55. Joany

    April 10, 2013 at 6:23 pm

    Please keep Dallas on, this story is getting very good. I have never missed one show , old or new.

    April 10, 2013 at 6:24 pm

    I love DALLAS and hope for a 3rd AND 4th season. 2nd season has been great, and while I miss Larry Hagman, the writers have really used JR’s death to the show’s benefit. I hope Victoria Principal returns as Pam.

  57. Marzia

    April 10, 2013 at 6:39 pm

    I think this Dallas series is “fantastic”. Non stop drama from week to week. I don’t think I’ve seen a show with such mystery as to what is going to happen and to who. Writers are great. Also, love all the actors. The only thing I would change: go to Thursday nights vs being on Mondays.

  58. Pam

    April 10, 2013 at 6:42 pm

    I hope Dallas stays for a third season! I enjoy it even more than I did the original show. I still enjoy seeing the original stars come back.

    April 10, 2013 at 7:04 pm

    I sure hope Dallas does come back for another season – I’ve been sitting on the edge of the couch hanging on every minute! Whoever says the ratings are so so should turn off the video games and watch the series! I like it as much as the original and I can see the former Ewing competition between JR and Bobby emerging between Christopher and John Ross. Perhaps they could do a little less with the love triangles though – I think they have milked that for all that it’s worth.

    Are you kidding? This is like heaven, watching Dallas again! I watched it the first time around and loved it and have watched it gleefully upon its return. Why they put it up against the ACC Basketball I will never know – if ratings are the issue – but we taped the games and watched Dallas. That should give the advertisers a clue. Even though we are in the 50 to 60 age market, our opinion should surely count.

    I also want to say the “tribute” to JR that touched me deeply was the music when that show began. It was, of course, the DALLAS music, but a little slower and almost haunting. It was a fine way to embrace the bittersweet passing of an old friend who you loved to hate and hated to love but did both.

    Finely, the new folks under the guidance of Bobby (Patrick Duffy) will do just fine… the cast has already blended well and as relationships evolve, DALLAS (returned) will be as big as ever.

    My husband and I are devoted fans of Dallas! We would love for Dallas to continue for many seasons’s to come. Yes, JR (Larry Hagman) will be missed he was a huge part of our lives growing up on I dream of Jeannie and then as JR on Dallas, we cried as we found out of his passing. JR was a villain / gentleman but he never did the kind of bizarre and awful things that Cliff and Rowland do. We can’t wait for Monday night’s to come around for Dallas it is the high light of our week! We grew up watching Dallas and now we get to see the torch passed to the next generation, we can’t get enough of it an hour is not enough to satisfy the crave, the last two episodes are two hours we would love to see it continue to be a two hour series from start to finish as the seasons continue!!! Devoted Dallas fans!!!!

    I love the show. I do agree that maybe they could make the ranch a little fancier inside. Have Anne decide it needs it maybe. Also, may sound silly but maybe a beautiful garden in front or back, whichever will be seen more by viewers. Appeal to the eye is important. Love the plots, it’s doing great.

    April 10, 2013 at 7:47 pm

    I love ‘Dallas’ and loved it the first time around. Yes, Larry Hagman is missed but I love the second generation and think it is going to be just as entertaining with Bobby taking the reins. I hope they will have a third season. If Pam could at least show up for a short time, it would make things even more interesting.

    Personally, I wouldn’t miss it! It’s my favorite show of ALL TIME! Maybe it should air on a different night and do some more promotional work! I would be devastated if the show is cancelled!

  72. Michele

    April 10, 2013 at 8:41 pm

    Don’t even think about cancelling Dallas. I think that this show is just as good as the original. I am sooooo into what is going on. We all need to know who killed JR. Cliff has to get his and I would be so stoked if Christopher and Bobby finally caught up with Pam.

    April 10, 2013 at 8:56 pm

    Season 2 has been much better then season 1..While it took some time to get to know the new cast members, they now are familiar and have brought a lot of appeal to the show. I hope TNT will give it another season..

    April 10, 2013 at 9:32 pm

    Love Dallas! Will miss JR but the writers did an excellent job from Day One in introducing the younger characters & making them a primary part of the show. Ryland is a better villain than Cliff Barnes ever was. And I hope Judith Light returns as Ryland’s mother. Awesome job! Also like how Christopher is being more manipulative and John Ross has a conscience (at times). Always knew Bobby had steel inside him & now we get to see it.

  76. GrannyD

    April 10, 2013 at 9:47 pm

    Loved the old Dallas and really love the new show! I was worried about where the story line would go with Larry Hagman’s death. But the show is fantastic and I am also baffled about the low ratings they say the show is having! I hope they make Pam a regular on the show and I am sure they can find a actress to fill the spot. Looking forward to many more seasons of Dallas!

  77. Janet

    April 10, 2013 at 9:57 pm

    I absolutely love Dallas. Have been a fan since the original series was on TV. I love the twists in the storyline. JR’s death shouldn’t change the viewers thoughts since there are so many dirty handed characters. Move it to another time slot and night so it isn’t opposite DWTS. That may help.

  78. Dogs4Pete

    April 10, 2013 at 10:06 pm

    I was just saying tonight that I think Larry Hagman would absolutely approve of the job the actors are doing, the show is rockin, so with all the garbage shows on TV now, PLEASE keep this coming, the story lines are great can’t wait for Monday Night’s finale. Also if it was to move to a different night, I remember Dallas (CBS) was on Friday nights, I had to learn how to program my VCR in the early 80’s.

  79. Elaine Riedy

    April 10, 2013 at 10:14 pm

    I love the new Dallas almost as much as the first series. I am impressed by the acting and writing and look forward to the show each week. The second season of Dallas is even better than the first was. I miss J.R. but the way the writers have included his memory in the show has really knocked my socks off. I hope there will be a third season. I can’t understand why the ratings are sub par. I wonder who’s keeping track of that because for me this show is my favorite one on t.v. now.

    The ratings are bound to improve if Dallas was shown regularly at a sensible time. It is now on a tuesday night at 11-00 Pm. The old show was peak time at 8-00PM on BBC1.Channel 5 have done well to secure the show but should realise it is an honour for them and put it in peak viewing with advertising and stories in newspapers to remind people and make them want to watch it. As for showing it in the summer, great summer 2013 but to wait till summer 2014 would be madness

  87. Diana

    April 11, 2013 at 2:21 am

    Yes, it will be back for a 3rd season; but, it may not survive a 4th. The network has to stop changing the time of the show being televised because 1 week it starts at 8pm then the next it’s 9pm then back to 8pm; as well as, stop changing the day that it will be broadcast. Last year it went from Wednesday to Saturday then back to Wednesday and this year it’s change to Monday. Make up your mind. Shuffling a show around makes a person lose track of their favorite show & lose interest.

    I really hope Dallas gets another season and another 100 seasons after that! I am loving seeing Patrick Duffy again tho my top fav is Linda Gray. It has been interesting to see how so many of them have aged yet Linda Gray retains her youthful sexy look. I would also love to see Knots Landing come back!

  89. Bill - Canadian Dallas Fan

    April 11, 2013 at 3:14 am

    I loved the original Dallas; I am a long-time fan. I missed many episodes of the first couple of seasons, but was hooked just before JR got shot. Great writing, acting, stories, and sets from most of the original series. Intensely disliked Charlene Tilton and her Lucy Ewing character though, and I still do.

    I watched the series through the original run mid-Season 2, and again in 1995-1997 when it aired on CMT. I bought the seasons as they were available and watched it again. I agree with those who believe the show “jumped the shark” with the dream season, but I also think there would not have been another way to write the recently departed Bobby successfully into the series.

    It took a few episodes for me to become comfortable with the new generation of Dallas in the continuation series. Initially it was great to see Hagman, Duffy, and Gray to reprise their roles and Brenda Strong was absolutely dead on as Ann. Brewster was dead on in her role as Elena from the first episode, but it took a while for Metcalfe, Henderson, and Gonzalas to grow into their roles. I wasn’t crazy about “sweet Rebecca” from the first season; she’s wonderful as the “devious Pamela” form the second season.

    Within a few episodes, I saw actors Metcalfe and Henderson make their roles their own. I was originally favouring Chris Demetral as Christoper Ewing (JR Returns, c1996) instead of Metcalfe and wasn’t sure if Henderson had the acting chops for John Ross. I was wrong – both actors succeed in their respective roles. I just wish they would lose the all facial scruff or grow attractive facial hair. Mabye it’s a modern style, but both men look unkepmt much of the time.

    This show has definitely become a new favourite. It’s darker and more gritty than the original series, but with less characters it would have to be less like a true soap-opera format series. I like the return of orginal characters, but teel some of them are just window dressing: Gary, Valene, Lucy, and Ray and really don’t add much to the show. Cliff and Afton should be given more to do – it would be wonderful to see them in Dallas providing support for Pamela and clashing again when they disagree. Cliff Barnes just never gives up the Ewing feud!

    The role of Pamela Barnes Ewing should be recast for the short-term if Victoria Principal is not interested in returning. However, I strongly believe that Pam should not become between Bobby and Ann. The love and commitment of this new couple is very strong; I believe the love boat for Pam and Bobby has long ago sailed.

    I’ll be disappointed if Dallas is not renewed for a third season. Sometimes the networks forgot these types of series need time to build and audience and many of them are cancelled too soon before they had a chance to succeed. The recent GCB series with Leslie Bibb and Annie Potts is an example of one that should have continued.

    • Don Roseville

      April 20, 2013 at 3:43 pm

      I totally agree. Dallas on TNT is better than ever. It is growing in popularity, my friends and I can’t wait to replay the show every Tuesday morning and try to predict the next series of plots. I will definitely miss JR but I am positive he would say “The show must go on”. Bringing back players from the original series really sparks the intensity of the show. I positively can’t wait for season three. I too was a avid follower of the GCB show which had the same level of intrique that the new Dallas series has created. When GCB did not return I was extremly sad and disapointed in the network and the producers lack of fan appreciation. GCB was filling the void created with the loss of Desparate Housewives and Sunday TV as not recovered yet. Please do not make this mistake again and bring on Dallas for Season Three. Thank you.

    Don’t change a thing! I am a long time fan and follower and am impressed with what you have done this seasons story lines since the passing of Larry Hagman. actors are amazing. I love the show so much that when we dropped our cable that only thing I new I would miss was Dallas on TNT. I fixed that with a Y membership and every Monday night I go to the gym and walk on the treadmill and tune in to Dallas. Clocked over 6 mile this past week with the 2 hr. show!

    I agree with moving it to another day. This past Monday’s episodes were competiting with Dancing with the Stars, The Voice and the NCAA basketball championship. You can only DVR so many shows. I was recording 2 shows and watching another TV to see basketball!

    Love, love, love the new Dallas! The original Dallas was a Friday night staple…..I truly hope the network considers bringing it back on Friday nights. This was up against the Bachelor, And the premiers of DWTS & The Voice…tough competition. Whatever day…..I’m there, and my kids love it too. So much so that I’m getting the original on DVD so they can see the back stories, especially the Ewing/Barnes feud. Thanks TNT!!

    April 11, 2013 at 5:26 am

    I think the show is getting better all the time! I can’t imagine they would stop it now just when its warming up! And yes I was a fan of the original series too. I would suggest however that the cameraman pull back some to avoid all the motion in the picture. I feel the need to take Dramamine sometimes with the jerking around of the cameras when they swing it around so much and so fast.

    I would hope Dallas will be on for a long time. I also watched the original series, which was good. This new Dallas will miss J.R. may he rest in peace. This show has the ability to run a long time. It has a good young cast with alot of energy and more mature actors for the older audience. This show is more riveting than the original and leaves one wanting more each week. Great all around cast. Don’t change nothing.

  101. EJB

    April 11, 2013 at 6:26 am

    April 11, 2013 at 6:29 am

    Dallas is the best show on television. I watched it back in the old days and loved it but thought it had “jumped the shark” after the “dream” season that “didn’t exist.” However the new series sizzles. The young cast is fantastic. Patrick Duffy has brought a new dimension to Bobby’s role. The action is extremely fast paced where if you slip out of the room for fifteen seconds, you could miss a key piece of the puzzle. The writing is better than the old show. TNT shouldn’t turn its back on this. Cheap reality television has made it hard for strong scripted shows to survive. I don’t watch reality TV, and it is only well written and well performed shows like Dallas that keep me watching TV at all. Don’t blow it, TNT.

  103. Suzanne

    April 11, 2013 at 6:34 am

    It shouldn’t even be a question! Of course it should come back! Fantastic storyline! Surprises every week. Actors are wonderful. Love this show! My husband and I are also included in the many viewers that watched the “old Dallas” we enjoy every minute of the “new Dallas” as well. I truly hope the right decision is made and Dallas returns for not only one more season but keeps on going… Larry Hagman was an incredible loss to not only the acting community, he is missed by everyone. The show must go on…

    I hope that TNT will continue the Dallas series. I have been a Dallas fan since the beginning and was excited that it was coming back. I have not missed an episode. I think having JR, Sue Ellen, Cliff Barnes and Bobby back on the new series has been good for it and kept it interesting. Even though JR has passed, I believe the other characters they have cast on the show are really good actors and keep it interesting. John Ross will carry the torch for JR and Bobby will for the Ewing family. There are not any night time soaps on now and I never liked the show Desperate Housewives, so it’s been a long time since there wre any good night time soaps on. Even though I am in the over 40 demographics I hope they keep Dallas on for a few more years. I love the show.

  106. Lynn

    April 11, 2013 at 7:03 am

    I think the show has hit the target perfectly! It is riveting! I am astounded at the brilliance of the writers being able to recreate this drama. I think the biggest issue is getting the word out. I have told several people about Dallas being back on and they had known nothing about it. An amazing cast!!!! Could not have cast it any better! I had the pleasure of working with Patrick Duffy a few years ago and he is an amazing individual with a genuine heart and soul! The key people are in place, I think it will just take time for people to ‘find’ the show. Helping us, the fans to post it on social media is great! It is the ONLY show I watch, it consists of REAL actors, I hate the reality shows. Acting is becoming a lost art, and this show if full of artistic ability. Keep it going! Bless you all.

  108. Bob Parte

    April 11, 2013 at 7:23 am

    I was an avid fan of the original Dallas. So much so, that about 2 years ago, my wife and I watched the entire series on DVD. I would always say to her “I wonder what Dallas would be like in today’s time, with cell phones, the internet, etc.”. Then, when I saw that TNT was bringing Dallas back, I was very excited! From the first episode, when I found that they kept the original theme music, and showed the NEW Cowboy’s stadium in the opening credits, I was hooked. When Larry Hagman passed away, I was saddened, as I’m sure many people were. But what TNT did in honor of Larry was amazing. The opening credits, and music, of the episode “J,R,’s Masterpiece”, was touching, and actually brought tears to my eyes.
    As the second season continues, I have realized that TNT’s cast picks for the new series is spot on. Josh Henderson, as John Ross, is supurb! He definately has J.R.’s DNA.
    As with the original Dallas series (which was the pioneer of the “season ending cliffhanger”) I find myself anxiously awaiting the next episode. As long as the series continues to excite, and keep us in suspense, I believe (and hope) it will do well.
    I suppose TNT is shooting for the 20 – 40 year old demographic, but I’m sure that myself (I’m 54 years old) and anyone else who was a fan of the original series, glued to their TV on Monday nights! What is also amazing, is that TNT was able to bring back so many of the original cast members.
    Keep up the good work TNT, I hope this new generation of Dallas is as successful as the original!

    Back in the day, I was a Dallas fan and today I am just as riveted as I was then. I find the new Dallas series is just as good as the original,,.which is difficult to accomplish! The acting is supurb and engaging and it would be disheartening if the series does not continue. Yes, it is sad that J.R. has died, but as long as their is a character who is just as devious as J.R. was, then the show will continue to be engaging! Perhaps if Bobby’s son takes J..R’.s place as the “evil” one, that would be a surprising twist to keep the fan base interested!!!!

    Sure hope the show returns for a 3rd season and more! Our entire household has been fans of Dallas forever! I’m not sure there could ever be another J.R. but it could make the show even more fun if John Ross ‘channeled’ the essence of J.R. Ewing…he’s not quite there yet…he needs to really own J.R.’s comment of “Your are my son, tip to tail”. Just go for it!

    This is one of the best shows on TV. What would help the rating would be if it were on one of the big 4 networks. TNT is OK however the ratings would be much higher if the show was on CBS like the original. Good for TNT to take the chance though!

    I believe it will returrn or I sure hope it does. I miss JR but Bobby and the rest of the cast are doing an exceptional job. I love the story lines which keep you guessing. There is a lot of unanswered questions out there and I know we are all waiting for the answers and you know some answers will cause some more questions that will need to be answered later.

    It has to come back. I like it better than the original version that watched from the beginning in 1978 till the end in 1991. We all will certainly miss Larry Hagman…knowing him he would want the show to go on and on. I love Sue Ellen (Linda Gray) more than ever…keep her powerful. Bobby has certainly gotten stronger and love his loyalty to his family. TNT keep it on. Thanks.

    Dallas has not yet come full cycle. I loved the first Dallas and the new Dallas is just the icing on the cake. I think all the new actors are just the younger vision of the the first Dallas stars. I believe even if Larry Hagman has left us he will never b gone. Please keep this show on .It is as great as the first THANKS

    I sure hope it comes back for a third season! Story line is fascinating!


    April 11, 2013 at 11:33 am

    I for one love watching Dallas on TV. I will miss J.R. Ewing, but will love to see the show continue. I used to watch it so much that I had a son and we named him J.R. He is 26 yrs old and we still remember waiting on Friday nights to see that show. All the stars on that show are such great actors. I watched the new show Dallas and it kept me interested and waiting on the next week for it to come on. I hope it will start coming back on soon. You all stay strong and let’s do it.

    Sincerely yours

  137. Rozeena

    April 11, 2013 at 1:54 pm

    I love new Dallas!! I loved it as a child, it was sooo exciting and shiny and glamourous, I thought Pam was so beautiful, and wanted to grow up to look like her, and loved Bobby, JR and Sue Ellen, they felt like family. And now the show has returned, it feels like long lost family. Its wonderful to see Bobby and Sue Ellen, JR is sadly missed, but will never be forgotten, and it has been lovley to see old characters Gary, Lucy and Ray make appearances. My favourite character now is the new Pamela, she’s gorgeous and strong. I hope new Dallas runs and runs, I don’t know how we have managed without the Ewings all those years the show was off-air.

    I feel the 2nd season has been stronger than the first. Very well done to all of the actors and writers, keep it up. Have enjoyed seeing the family coming together and closing ranks. Very unhappy Channel 5 screens it at 11 pm!, graveyard slot, it deserves better, but I stay up every week to watch it as soon as it airs, even though I have an early start the next morning.

    April 11, 2013 at 3:51 pm

    One other thing I want to say about Dallas is the Schemers are delicious!!!!! Judith Light was great I wonder if she is going to come back because I really believe Dallas will be renewed…what would be good if Judith Light came back & gave Harris Ryland a run for his money since he turned on her..& ended helping the Ewings..I love that family comes first even if they disagree amongst themselves..I agree with most of the posters who think the original “Pam Ewing” should be recast if Victoria Principal doesn’t want to do it..Christopher might have some hidden issues in regard to his mom abandoning him..& maybe he could have a little bit the “JR” in him even if he is adopted..

    • Betty

      April 28, 2013 at 12:41 pm

      Having Pam come back & Judith turning on Ryland would be delicious. I just had another thought instead of John Ross being exactly like his father in his cheating what if him and Pam a true pact & understanding that they will both do whatever it takes to get what they want.

    This Dallas remake has all the ingredients that made the show great in it’s golden era. I can’t WAIT for the next episode, just like before. Truly one of the best shows on TV! I sincerely hope it’s on for many more seasons!!

  143. Deb

    April 11, 2013 at 5:01 pm

    I watched the original series and was glued to the TV every Friday night. I was so excited when they brought the series back again. I ABSOLUTELY LOVE IT! The young actors are wonderfully talented and seeing the original cast members are like a family reunion. This is the only TV show that I must watch each week; my kids have even started buying the original series DVDs for me to watch again. PLEASE, PLEASE CONTINUE THE SERIES!! It gets better every week—wouldn’t change a thing except make the seasons longer (more than 15 shows for sure). Every time I hear the opening music my heart skips a beat.

  144. Sue

    April 11, 2013 at 5:09 pm

    We have been Dallas fans since the beginning and really enjoy the new seasons. Yes, it is different without Larry Hagman (JR), bu the cast is doing a great job and we really are hooked! Can’t believe next week is the season finale all ready….looking forward to Season 3! Don’t disappoint us…….

  145. Kathy

    April 11, 2013 at 5:29 pm

    and is an evil, scheming, rotten son of a gun. Will make for a great villan for Bobby, John Ross and Christopher to play off of. Really enjoying the show!

    Growing up I watched the original Dallas and it was engaging every week; I remember every one was on pins and needles for the next episode. The new version of this show is falling right into the footsteps of the original and I am positively obsessed with it. I was telling my co-workers in my office at DISH that I’m not really one for soap operas but this one has pulled me in like no other. There is just something about being familiar with the evil doings of some characters on the show and seeing their adult children buck what seems to be a family curse. This truly is one of the best shows on TV and I sincerely hope that TNT will renew the show. I’m not always home when Dallas airs on Monday nights so I catch up on what I’ve missed by using DISH Anywhere. It allows me to turn my tablet into a TV anytime and anywhere.

    April 12, 2013 at 5:19 pm

    I love Dallas..I hope it is renewed for a 3rd season.. It has to be one of the all time great TV shows..I watched the original and was so caught up in it..The same for the new Dallas..I am very sad that JR is gone….No one could replace him..However I live close to where he was raised and buried and we have a little part of JR still with us…I hope the show continues on for a long time..It is great…

  151. JJ

    April 13, 2013 at 8:45 am

  152. Glenda

    April 15, 2013 at 7:13 pm

    I am hopeful that Dallas will return for a third season……it seems the plot now thickens….and is better than ever.

    The ghost of JR will always be a part of Dallas, but the second generation is great.. Same greed, lust, liquor, money, power and excitement……. Keep Dallas for a third season …

  161. Patty

    April 16, 2013 at 2:27 pm

    I definitely believe Dallas should continue for another season. I cannot think of anything they need to do. I believe the show is riveting and I for one look forward to seeing it each and every week. Splendid acting and the writers are doing an awesome job of keeping the show exciting.

  162. Kim

    April 16, 2013 at 6:40 pm

    Please bring back Dallas for a 3rd season. Im a huge fan. I was a lil girl when the original was on and I remember my Mom and Grandmother watched it faithfully every Friday night. I got hooked on the show because of them. Please give it a fair chance.

  163. Tracy

    April 16, 2013 at 7:11 pm

    As soon as the music comes on it’s like I’m going back in time and I can’t wait for the show to start! Love the having the duel generations, the in fighting and standing as one. Dallas is great, a good pace of the stories. There better be a 3rd season! I can’t wait for it!!!!!

    April 17, 2013 at 1:28 am

    My husband and I have been Dallas fans since its inception many years ago. When Dallas came back last year we were thrilled, like having old friends with us again. When Dallas is on it is the one evening we spend at home alone….WITH NO COMPANY to distract us. We wouldn’t miss an episode. J. R. will be missed but the young generation’s story line will give interesting twists and turns like days of old. The older characters (whom we love dearly), will be a wonderful foundation for the younger characters, cementing the series for a long time to come. John Ross and Christopher remind us so much of J.R. and Bobby from years ago. Do keep the series going. It would be such a shame to lose Dallas again.

  166. Rusti

    April 17, 2013 at 9:18 am

    Yes. I love it. I doubt I missed an episode of the original Dallas and was skeptical at this “catch-up” series. It had me on the first episode! Though Larry Hagman will be missed, he was gifted enough to leave us with a character that can live on. John Ross is truly a J.R. wannabe, and he is fantastic at it. To see the old characters and the new is a rare and wonderful treat. I hope this series goes as long as the original!

  167. Yalem

    April 17, 2013 at 9:58 am

    Dallas is wonderful-acting, writing, production is superb.
    The acting of Patirck Duffy is top notched and Henderson has really excelled also.
    Perhaps bringing back a couple more of the original cast would add a little more for some of the people who recall the original show, right now the new cast outnumbers the original members by a wide margin.
    Other than that I think just keeping the writing as good as it has been is a key to holding the audience.

  170. Jayne

    April 17, 2013 at 3:20 pm

    The whole family loves Dallas and hopes it returns for season 3. There is something for everyone in the weekly episodes.

  176. Mike Schroeder

    April 21, 2013 at 7:59 pm

    I really believe a Victoria Principal return would do it. Another angle the show could use is the offspring of either Jeremy Wendal or Carter McKay as villains

  177. BR

  179. John Walden

    April 22, 2013 at 5:23 pm

    YES!!!! Dallas has been my favorite show for as long as I can remember (I grew up watching the original with my parents) and having the show back on and my old friends has been awesome. I really miss Larry Hagman, but I think John Ross has the potential to become just as big a character in his own right. I hope the show gets a third season, and a fourth, fifth, sixth, seventh, eighth, ninth, tenth, eleventh, twelfth, thirteenth, and fourteenth like the old show. I only wish these seasons were longer. 10 and 15 episodes per season just aren’t enough!

  180. Marquel

    April 22, 2013 at 5:42 pm

I LOVE this show, it’s what I look forward to every monday night and would hate to see it go!! I am anxiously awaiting season three!! The other actors and actresses are doing an awesome job at carrying on!!!

    If Pam can come back from the dead so can JR. Tommy Lee Jones as JR Ewing, perfect recast, a slim ball country southern man, he could pull it off wonderfully!

    • Betty

      April 28, 2013 at 12:28 pm

      Matt you took the thought from my mind but I just couldn’t think of who would play JR. Tommie Lee Jones is an excellent choice.

  189. Betty

    April 28, 2013 at 12:25 pm

    Please Please bring Dallas back for a 3,4 etc. season. I love it as it is. I was a big fan of the orginial Dallas & was thrilled when I learned last yr it was coming back.I have just ordered the first & second season on DVD. Dallas is 1 of the only 2 tv series I watch, Scandals being the other. I am a avid reader so when a show is good enough for me to put my book down and look forward to Monday night it is GOOD. Although JR is gone your cast of characters are more than strong enough to carry the show. I love to see the Ewing pulling together perhaps putting them in conflict with another super family would be good.I don’t know I am just throwing out ideals because I so want this show to continue. I know it will all depend on rating,as a fan I will continue to do my part in spreading the word.LOVE LOVE LOVE DALLAS.

  192. Chris

    April 30, 2013 at 7:41 am

    Ok then since everyone wants it back they better bring it back. It has to improve though as I can only watch half an episode at a time. They should look at reducing episodes to 25 minutes and doing 2 per week. It happens with soaps in the UK.

Besides with the cliffhanger that they had for the season finale, it wouldn’t be right to leave all the fans hanging like that. PLEASE COME BACK FOR ANOTHER SEASON AND MORE SEASONS TO COME.

    Yes I would like to see a third season of Dallas because i’m trying to watch the very beging season but it not working out to well. and I got really into Dallas because my mom watch I was excited to see booby again. I cant find the second part of when pam falls and losses the baby I liked the part when bobby punched jr for making fun of pam and and calling her trash when she was not. my favorite couple was bobby and pam because they had a love no can break. for example they will break up and get back together. my another favorite couple was bobby and ann because they also made a cute couple like bobby and pam. how come cliif was nice In the first series but in the second season when they brought dallas cliff was mean to bobby and christionfer and making him believe that pam was dead or alive but I think pam is not dead because she was trying to make it back to bobby and christionfer so please bring a third season and please bring pam back

  199. David Simpson

    May 28, 2013 at 10:10 am

    Although I enjoyed watching the new series the plot lines were too much intertwined
    and I will be ‘pleased’ but surprised if they commission a 3rd series with the viewing
    figures they have been getting. From 20 years again and multi million viewing figures
    on BBC 1 to now televised on Channel 5 and lately a late night slot and JR shot again
    – hardly an original story line.

    The old Dallas was good, and I admit I had my doubts but I really want to see more of the new one the new charcters are just like their dads and Bobby is at the helm, just like Jock and Miss Elly would be proud. Somehow I just knew Sue Ellen would slip, I can’t wait to see season 3 and season 4 and 5…
    I hated it when it cancelled so long ago. Bobby will always be my favorite.

    true it seemed like JR made the show but it seemed like the kids were more involved so I figured it was going to be about them now since JR was getting older anyway and Patrick Duffy was eventually going to die in the series so that it could continue with the kids after they grew up, it seemed like the show was on them anyway and I would like it to continue with the series where it left off.

    I watched the original Dallas and I am now hooked on the New Dallas with the boys all grown. Story lines are great. But please don’t make Sue Ellen a drunk any more. I liked the idea of her in a power position and in control of herself. Linda Grey and Patrick Duffy are still as great as ever. Keep bringing back Ray into the show.
    I’ll watch this show always.

ABC and PEOPLE’s ‘The Story of Soaps’: What Was Your Review Of It?

Tuesday’s night airing of ABC and PEOPLE’s two-hour special The Story of Soaps featured many notable daytime and primetime soap stars, past and present, clips from backstage to classic memorable moments, and some participants who were providing commentary on the erosion of the daytime soaps in our culture.  Still others, maintained and realized that everything today is serialized from the news we watch, to some of Netflix’s most binge-watchable series, and of course, the birth of reality-programming.

Throughout the airing of the special, The Story of Soaps was trending on Twitter and social media either at the #2, #3 or #4 spots for the entire duration of the broadcast presentation, and the cancelled and beloved All My Children was also at one point trending.

However, known soap writers, journalists, ardent fans, and actors of the genre, were all on Twitter last night live-tweeting their thoughts as the special went down, and there was definitely mixed reactions and reviews, when all was said and done.

What the special did not shy away from, but tackled, was Luke’s rape of Laura at the campus disco on General Hospital. and how that moment now, as Genie Francis (Laura), so eloquently put, would be considered as ‘date rape’ in our culture.  The series even included a pivotal moment where Laura addresses Luke (Tony Geary) about the rape years later, after helping Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) through her rape ordeal.

John Stamos (Ex-Blackie Parrish, GH) got a bevy of “Right On’s!” for his comment that the soaps do not get the credit that they deserve and clearly came through as one of the soaps greatest supporters, as did former The Doctors and Knots Landing star, Alec Baldwin.

However, throughout the two-hours, Andy Cohen’s commentary was thread throughout; mostly citing soap’s demise and the creation of reality-programming and his “Real Housewives” franchise, that the special touted as the new soap operas.  It continued on the narrative that people preferred to see real-life drama then made-up drama on a fictional soap.  And while, that has been a trend in American culture for decades, the commentary came off as often out of place in a celebration of the soaps; and bringing in a lot of negativity to the special that soap fans were tired of hearing.

In a lighting rod moment, Cohen stated: “I know Susan Lucci doesn’t agree with me, but I think that the Housewives have replaced soap operas because truth is stranger than fiction. Soaps became kind of unnecessary because you could do it with real people, and they’re writing the drama themselves.”

The special did also address the cancellations of All My Children and One Life to Live, (which many were not sure they were going to do – given this special was airing on ABC), where One Life’s leading lady and six-time Daytime Emmy winner, Erika Slezak (Ex-Viki) said what we all wanted to sa ywhen the ax fell on the towns of Llanview and Pine Valley, “People were horrified”.

Clearly, OJ Simpson and his murder trial and reality-programming were also given a chunk of time to show where the once mighty landscape of daytime soaps which once had 13 shows on the air, dwindled town to 4.  But, it would have been nice to see more time spent on how in this day and age, the people in this current landscape of the genre work so hard to get episodes done at an unbelievable pace, and how in that climate the performers still deliver gut-wrenching performances.

Former Loving, OLTL and Breaking Bad star, Bryan Cranston, did point out how the once powerful soaps, just don’t have the dollars they used to, and need to, to help with production costs and their taping schedule.

Viewers were reminded of soaps’ socially relevant storylines including hankie-inducing moments from: Robin (Kimberly McCullough) and Stone’s (Michael Sutton) HIV/AIDS storyline on General Hospital, to Billy Douglas being a gay teen coming out on One Life to Live, played by a young Ryan Phillippe.

There also did not seem time spent on the contributions of William J. Bell; one of the most prominent writers of the soap genre of all-time.

For many commenting on social media last night, there seemed to be a feeling of some glaring omissions of participants who could speak on this genre, who have been in the trenches as soap producers, soap writers, pundits, actors, and more, who were not included in the special.

So, what was your review of The Story of Soaps? How would you grade it? Do you feel it accurately reflected the history of the genre?  Were you happily surprised,  or when it came to the end where you over it, or somewhere in between? Sound off in the comment section below.  Below are some tweets from notables who have worked as an actor, a writer, and a journalist in the soaps.

‘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.

Share your thoughts on the passing of Ken Kercheval in the comment section below.   But first, watch him as Cliff Barnes in this scene from TNT’s Dallas when he sees J.R. for the first time in years!
