|'Dallas' Renewed for Third Season|

TNT is staying in Dallas. The cable network has renewed the series for a third season.
And despite a significant ratings dip in January from its inaugural run in summer 2012, the network plans to stick with a winter premiere. A 15-episode season is slated to kick off in early 2014.
"Dallas has built a passionately loyal following with its expertly woven storylines, clever twists and turns, and numerous outstanding performances by a cast that spans generations," said TNT, TBS and TCM president and head of programming Michael Wright. "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."
Hagman, one of the returning actors from the 1978 series, died in November at 81.
Produced Warner Horizon Television, Dallas relaunched last year to a massive 6.9 million viewers. Its second season, which saw it facing much more competition in broadcast network, returned just short of 3 million.
It did see growth over the course of the season, however. The farewell to Hagman's character fetched a season high of 3.6 million viewers. All told, the second season averaged 3.8 million viewers in Live+Seven Day returns, with 1.6 million adults 25-54 and 1.4 million adults 18-49.
Southland, from Warner Bros. Television, is awaiting news on a possible renewal after recently finishing its early 2013 run on TNT. Dallas' time slot neighbor Monday Mornings, David E. Kelley's medical drama, has also yet to be renewed -- though it's considered a long shot after ratings further fizzled from its 1.34 million premiere.

|IMO Dallas is barely hanging on. Renewing for a third season isn't really a good idea.|

||My guess is that it will be the last renewal the show receives unless it performs a miraculous turn-around.|

||That's all I watch on TNT so I'll be back on Southfork Ranch when the show returns.|

|It's too bad they didn't have someone from the original show running things.|

||Or at least have someone on in a consulting capacity. I'm sure David Paulsen (the original series' best writer, IMO) would have been willing.|
