Good news! DALLAS is not only the NO 1 ranking cable show (beating even "Rizolli & Isles", which took the title in the last couple of years) with an avarage rating of 6.9 million viewers (+3 & +7 ratings included), But TNT also announced earlier this week that it has RENEWED the succesful continuation of the series with a 15-episode order so far! The second season will air in 2013 (date TBA).
It looks like we'll be seeing a lot more of Elena Ramos (however, we have no idea on contract lengths so it could all depend on that as well.)
These are the Wednesday/Thursday ratings (not incl. +3 & +7) for the episodes that have aired so far:
Episode 1 "Changing of the Guard" - airdate: June 13, 2012: 6.86 million viewers (US)
Episode 2: Hedging your Bets" - airdate: June 13, 2012: 6.86 million viewers (US)
Episode 3: "The Price You Pay" - airdate: June 20, 2012: 4.76 million viewers (US)
Episode 4: "The Last Hurrah" - airdate: June 27, 2012: 4.08 million viewers (US)
As you can see, the day-ratings have dropped slightly over the past 3 weeks, but not to worry. It's normal for new shows to start very high (because people want to see what it's about) and then drop slightly - especially for a show that was so popular in the first 14 seasons.
We're happy to inform you that "The last Hurrah", still tied for the NO 1 cable show on June 27th.
Also, if you've missed any of the episodes so far - TNT is airing episodes 1 to 4, back to back on the 4th of July. The Dallas-streak will end with an all new episode (episode 5: "Truth & Consequences") at 9/8C.
