TNT sees big drop-off for ‘Dallas’ debut

Season premiere down significantly, draws only 2.98 million viewers do

TNT’s “Dallas” saw a huge drop-off for its season premiere of “Dallas” Monday night.

Without going against any signficant competition, the two-hour second-season debut drew 2.9 million viewers overall, and just over 1 million in the 18-49 demo. Last June for the series debut, the episode drew 6.8 million viewers and 1.9 in the demo.

After that very strong start, the show has been trending downward. The season-one finale on Aug. 8 garnered 4.2 million viewers and 1.6 million in the demo.

Before the start of Monday’s episode, there was a short tribute to Larry Hagman, who passed away a few months ago. Hagman, of course, played the iconic villain J.R. Ewing both in the classic 1970s “Dallas” and the current TNT reboot.

He passed away during production, so his death won’t be featured until later in the season.
