[SPOILER ALERT: The following story reveals major plot points from Wednesday's Dallas season finale.]
Everything's bigger in Texas, and the first season finale of TNT's Dallas was no exception...
With the Ewing family in crisis (are they ever not?), Bobby (Patrick Duffy) is forced to make a difficult choice about the future of Southfork on tonight's Dallas (9/8c, TNT). So who does a cowboy turn to at such a crossroads? His late mama, naturally.
As this first look video clip shows, Bobby brings a simple bouquet of flowers to the woodsy grave of Miss Ellie, a.k.a. Eleanor Southworth Ewing Farlow, who passed away in 2001. Keep an eye out for other Ewing headstones in the gated family plot, including...
Question: I hope you'll mention the passing of one of my favorite shows, Eureka. With all the hoopla around the finale of The Closer and the buzz about new and returning summer shows, the final episode of this quirky and creative Syfy gem will probably go unnoticed by most. Over the years it's become one of my favorites, serving up some high concept sci-fi stories with a healthy dose of humor and heart. Although I knew it was ending, the announcement last week of the July 16 "series finale" made me sadder than I expected. It's like nothing else on TV and I will miss all these wonderful, eccentric characters and this charming, if sometimes dangerous, town. Thanks for your insightful columns and recommendations! — Lenore
Please tell me Modern Family will time jump nine months next season to avoid covering up sexy Sofia Vergara in pregnancy padding. That would be a crime! —Ted, Norfolk, Va.
Sorry to disappoint, but...

It's one of TV's biggest cliffhangers: Can the soaps survive? In daytime, the outlook is murky at best for what is becoming an ever more endangered species. At night, though, the genre is once again thriving.
On ABC, where daytime soaps as legendary as All My Children have been unceremoniously retired and General Hospital hangs on by a thread, the lurid nighttime potboiler Revenge was last season's breakout guilty pleasure — and has been rewarded the plum Sunday night time period vacated by Desperate Housewives. Taking over Revenge's Wednesday slot is one of the fall's most buzzed-about pilots: the delicious Nashville, a country-fied "All About Eve" pitting veteran diva Connie Britton against scheming crossover upstart Hayden Panettiere.
Who shot J.R.? That was the question that plagued millions of Dallas viewers during the summer of 1980. But that famous phrase may also be the only thing today's advertiser-coveted youths know about the veteran CBS nighttime soap. However, it's both of these groups, the obsessive former fans and those unacquainted with the Ewing family, that TNT hopes to win over with its reboot, which premieres Wednesday at 9/8c. Just in case, TVGuide.com has devised a handy cheat sheet to catch newbies up on all the romance, backstabbing and, of course, who actually killed J.R. (Um, spoiler alert?)....
Pass the ribs, kick up your heels and get ready to hoof it till the cows come home. As far back as the '70s, the annual Ewing barbecue has been the hottest ticket in Texas, and this year TV Guide Magazine scored an exclusive invite. While the land down at Southfork looks remarkably untouched, time has changed the Ewings since CBS aired the last of Dallas' 357 episodes back in 1991, after 13 sudsy seasons.
Taking center stage on the dance floor...
J.R., Sue Ellen, Bobby, Ray, Cliff and Lucy will be back at Southfork when TNT's Dallas premieres June 13, but one original cast member will not return. Barbara Bel Geddes, who played beloved matriarch Miss Ellie, passed away in 2005, and the series will explain that her...
It's gonna get hot and steamy on Dallas.
