Dallas Lays J.R. Ewing to Rest — What's Next?

Larry Hagman and Patrick Duffy

When Josh Henderson landed the role of J.R. Ewing's son on TNT's reboot of Dallas, his TV dad Larry Hagman had one piece of advice: Have fun.

"I was a little nervous and he said, 'Hey, they cast you for a reason. Have fun,'" Henderson told TVGuide.com at Sunday's Paleyfest panel, moderated by TV Guide Magazine's William Keck. "He had fun every day. People had... read more

Dallas Bosses on the "Difficult" Final Farewell to J.R. and the "Delicious" New Mystery

Dallas

Monday's episode of Dallas marks the show's final farewell to J.R. Ewing, and the reboot's first episode without the late Larry Hagman. But behind the scenes, the man behind TV's most famous eyebrows was still a very strong presence. "The property department set his chair out every day and wardrobe would put his hat on it and he was still No. 1 on our call sheet," executive producer Michael M. Robin tells TVGuide.com. "So he was still kind of there with us every day."

On the Set: Dallas Says Goodbye to J.R. Ewing

Larry Hagman

A banquet hall in the posh Dallas Petroleum Club, high atop the city's Chase Tower, has been decorated with lavish floral bouquets and framed photographs of TV legend Larry Hagman in his sweet, smilin' heyday. "This is the episode where we honor Larry, as well as his character," Patrick Duffy (Bobby) says of Monday's Dallas, which addresses Hagman's untimely November death by murdering, ­memorializing and burying J.R. ­Ewing — all within... read more

Josh Henderson, Larry Hagman

In tribute to the late Larry Hagman, and in celebration of Monday's hotly anticipated memorial episode to his legendary character, J.R. Ewing, TNT's Dallas is issuing a series of J.R.-themed Internet memes.

Monday Playlist: Silence Is Golden on Switched at Birth

Switched at Birth

Alarms are sounded several times, but we never hear them, in a tremendously effective and thematically overdue episode of ABC Family's best-of-network Switched at Birth (8/7c), which unfolds almost entirely in American Sign Language. By necessity, actions speak louder than words — all in subtitles, or sometimes tweets — as the deaf and hard-of-hearing students at Carlton School for the Deaf rally to protest the school board's decision to shutter their campus. (The hearing students, whose integration into the student body has caused some friction this season, also pitch in.)

Review: Diva Night at the Oscars

Seth MacFarlane

The trend of so-called "hate-watching" is hardly a new TV phenomenon. We've been doing it with the Oscar show for years: picking apart the fashions, groaning at the witless banter, griping as we drift through the seemingly endless midsection where no awards of major consequence are presented, and nearly always regarding the unlucky host as a piñata ripe for the bashing.

This year's tuneful but torturously overextended production (ending just past the three-and-a-half-hour mark) was much the same. With one major exception: The musical numbers were no joke, especially when mighty divas as legendary as Barbra Streisand and Shirley Bassey and as electrifyingly current as Adele and Jennifer Hudson took the stage. No Rob Lowe-Snow White fiascos this time.

Keck's Exclusives First Look: Dallas Lays J.R. to Rest

Dallas

You have to give Deborah Shelton credit for being honest about her reaction to Dallas star Larry Hagman's death last November. "Selfishly," says Shelton, 1970's Miss USA, who played J.R.'s mistress Mandy from 1984 to 1987, "I thought, 'Well, there goes.. read more

Dallas Season 2 Burning Questions Answered: J.R.'s Farewell, Hiccups for Ann and Bobby

Dallas

Christopher's petition for annulment was rejected! Ann's long-lost daughter hates her guts! Sue Ellen lost the election! It was an eventful return to Dallas on last week's two-hour season premiere. After five months off the air, the Ewing clan & Co. wasted no time answering some of fans' biggest burning questions from the first season finale, and raising some new ones for Season 2 (Mondays at 9/8c on TNT). Although she did her best not to spoil what's to come, we turned to showrunner Cynthia Cidre for answers:

1. Could Elena and John Ross be the real deal? It wasn't a complete surprise to see brokenhearted bad guys John Ross (Josh Henderson) and... read more

The Monday Playlist: Dallas, RuPaul, Following and a Foster Brother on Bunheads

Dallas

It's hard to imagine Dallas without J.R. — a sentiment shared by many when Larry Hagman passed away last Thanksgiving, midway through production of the rebooted soap's second season. Even harder not to contemplate that sad future while watching TNT's two-hour premiere (Monday, 9/8c), where once again the veterans wipe the floor with the young whippersnappers. None more gleefully than Hagman, whose gaunt frailty can't mask the devilish glint beneath those statuesque eyebrows.

The Tuesday Playlist: Finales, a Salute to Primetime Soaps, White Collar, The Taste

Lauren Graham, Jason Ritter

It's another ridiculously busy night of TV, with premieres and finales jousting for attention amid other distractions. It's just as well that CBS' top-rated lineup is taking a breather with repeats.

First, the farewells, going head to head. Once again, NBC sends away its reliably tear-jerking Parenthood (10/9c) earlier in the TV year than we'd like, but a limited run of 15 episodes beats the alternative. Shows like this don't tend to repeat well, and if a shorter run makes business sense — while freeing up the time period in the back half of the season for something else (in this case, a retooled Smash in two weeks) — then so be it. This fourth season has been Parenthood's strongest and most emotionally charged to date, especially in the storyline involving Kristina's breast cancer ordeal, providing Monica Potter and Peter Krause (as husband Adam) with their strongest dramatic material to date. Emmy voters, wake up and take note.
