They did not have a good night at Southfork last night. The season two premiere of Dallas on TNT was down Monday almost 60% in terms of viewership from the reboot’s season one debut last June. Starting at 9 PM, Dallas pulled in just 2.98 million viewers compared to the 6.9 million who welcomed the return of the Ewings in the less crowded summer. That’s a series low for the new Dallas. Last night’s two-hour premiere was also significantly down from the 4.3 million who watched the season one finale on August 8. Among Adults 18-49, the season two premiere brought in 1.02 million viewers, down 27% from its season one average. Dallas pulled in 1.22 million viewers in the Adults 25-54 demo on Monday. That was a big drop from the 2.5 million in the demographic who watched the series premiere on June 13, 2012. It was also a 32% fall from the season one average. For its first season, Dallas averaged 4.5 million viewers in live plus same day delivery, with 1.4 million adults 18-49 and 1.8 million adults 25-54. The second season of Dallas has a 15-episode run, much of which will likely be without its villain J.R. Ewing played by Larry Hagman. The actor passed away on November 23, 2012 while filming the second season in the Texas city. Hagman is expected to appear in only the first six or so episodes of Dallas’ season two.
