The farewell to J.R. Ewing and Larry Hagman last night on Dallas pushed the TNT reboot to a season high. The series rose 23% among adults 18-49 and 28% in total viewers from last week’s episode, where the evil oilman was killed off. The star of the original Dallas and the reboot, Hagman died in the Texas city on November 23 while filming the second season of the show. Dallas pulled in 3.559 million total viewers and 1.099 million in the key demo Monday night. The older-leaning network also pulled in 1.377 million in the adults 25-54 demo, up 26% from last week’s show. While not nearly the 6.9 million total viewers who tuned in for the series premiere of the new Dallas last summer, that’s a nice rise from the average 2.6 million viewers who have been watching the series’ second season since its January 28 debut. Hagman appeared in the first seven episodes.
