As the sole journalist invited to Texas for the shooting of TNT's new Dallas pilot, I've had to keep my big mouth shut for two agonizing months as the series awaited an official pick-up. Now that Dallas has finally been ordered to series — premiering in summer 2012 — I can drop a few details about what I saw down at the Southfork Ranch in this continuation of the 1978-1991 prime-time soap.

As the TV season comes to a close, TV Guide Network takes a look back at the best finales of all time.
From the cut-to-black ending of The Sopranos to the vaguely spiritual final act of Lost, Jason Alexander counts down the most unforgettable finales. The special also features interviews with stars of these talked-about finales, including Will & Grace's Megan Mullally, Dallas' Patrick Duffy and Larry Hagman, M*A*S*H's Mike Farrell and The Shield's Walton Goggins.

TNT is currently negotiating deals with veteran Dallas stars Larry Hagman, Patrick Duffy and Linda Gray to head down south in early February to join a cast of hot, younger Ewings for a continuation of the 1978-91 primetime soap. And a lot has changed since we last visited with the Ewings in CBS's 1996 and 1998 reunion movies.

He was a prime suspect in the famous "Who Shot J.R.?" plot on Dallas. Now Patrick Duffy is returning to CBS' The Bold and the Beautiful for another big shooting. His character, gadabout dad Stephen Logan, will be paged back to town in November by his daughter Donna (Jennifer Gareis). "The Logan clan is being horribly abused by Stephanie Forrester [Susan Flannery] and Donna wants her father to stir the pot," says exec producer Brad Bell. Stephen has no idea that his eldest daughter, Brooke (Katherine Kelly Lang), was recently raped or that sicko Stephanie had a hand in it. So expect fireworks. "For years this family has been ashamed to be Logans," Bell notes. "Now they're going to rise up proudly and combat this oppressive woman." Can we safely assume it's Steph who takes the bullet? Bell is mum except to say, "It's a shocker." Reporting by Michael Logan
Dont laugh, but in the summer of 1981, I lived for three things: the birth of MTV, the Royal wedding and the identity of the bitch in the big hat who stormed Blakes murder trial at the end of Dynastys first season.As you can probably tell, I wasnt a normal kid. Didnt even climb a tree until I had to outrun the cops in high school. Dont ask, dont tell, OK?Anyway, for the kiddies among us, MTV used to show things called music videos and had veejays with gigantic hair. Now, not so much. Chuck and Di? Please, if I never hear Candle in the Wind again, Elton John would still owe me. And the hat ho? Lets just thank the TV gods that some people have stood the test of time. Even if this one did make me wait until November for the new season to begin.Alexis Morell Carrington Colby Dexter Rowan, I love you.And not in the being her for Halloween way. More like, I love you for being the first character to show me how t...
