After all the buzz and all the hype the season two premiere of Dallas turned in the worst ratings performance of the TNT reboot! The two-hour premiere which included two separate episodes was down over 60% in terms of viewership from the reboot’s season one debut in June of 2012!
According to Deadline.com, “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 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.”
In addition, there was more bad news … the season two premiere episodes took a 32% dip from the season one average of all episodes. 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.”
