    I have thoroughly enjoyed Dallas this season. It was great when I was younger and its great now. Great cast writing and visuals on the show as well. Its underrated how well they’ve done by bringing back a show that was wildly popular almost 30 years ago and giving it new life. Nice.Job.

  • fernando

    I really liked Here comes Honey Boo Boo, shes just a funny little girl.

  • Richard Steven Hack

    This Dallas still doesn’t match the original, but the finale wasn’t bad. The twist on Rebecca might finally make her interesting when the show resumes.

    But still, without J.R. and Bobby, the show would be a disaster. To quote Christopher Lee, these young actors are “like looking at air”.

    Dallas was sooo good, slightly disappointed cos really expected Pam to show up at the end, thought they were saving that for season finale twist. Also, a little bit of me thought that they might have Ann reveal herself as Pam after loads of plastic surgery.

    Good bump for it too and against the Olympics, after the premiere double bill and the episode that aired the week after that it was the most watched and highest rated episode of the show.

    Melissa And Joey and Baby Daddy are definitely doing good enough to be renewed and doubt they would promote the numbers if they weren’t going to renew the show.

    Also, loving The Exes, only thing that would make it better is if they just focused the show entirely on Holly, although they would probably have to change the name then.

    Also, they could probably make a hilarious show with just Kristen Johnston doing reaction shots and physical comedy.

  • Martin

    Also any ratings for Retired at 35??

  • Nick

    @Martin

    Have you ever been on this site before. The PR people for the Disney/ABC Television Group (ABC, ABC Family, Lifetime, Disney, etc.) spin the ratings for canceled shows !!!

  • pll fan

    M&J and Baby Daddy staying steady at 1.1 million viewers with a 0.5/0.6 demo during the Olympics isn’t anything special. Both shows have fallen quite hard since they returned in June, especially Baby Daddy. The first 3-4 weeks Baby Daddy was on, it was holding steady at 1.7 million viewers with a 0.7 demo. I believe some here were even predicting it would overtake PLL as ABC Family’s top show. Laughable!

  • Nick

    @pll fan
    Well, Baby Daddy is the third highest-rated show on the network.

  • Nick

    And how is sliding .2 and .1 from their respective season premieres having “fallen quite hard”?

  • Nick

    I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. Viewers. Don’t. Matter!!!

  • Jon23812

    @Nick, the reason why people think that is because Nielsen puts up total viewers instead of only putting up the viewers from the target audience.

  • david

    Thanks Amy as allways for the Hollywood Heights ratings. M and J and Baby Daddy are doing ok up against the olympics. Dallas was way up in the season finale.

  • Jason2456

    @Martin

    I think I read a while back that Pam wouldn’t be showing up in this show because Victoria Principle doesn’t want to do it. Something about not having acted for over 10 year and wanting to keep moving forward with her other projects.

  • s0303

    glad baby daddy did much better this week…hopefully is will go up more after the olympics…dallas did great…now if only it could get that number more often…

  • patti

    Good for Dallas!!! Love JR, Bobby and Sue Ellen! This is a great show and the cast is good. They fight but come together as a family. You go Dallas!

  • MC

    I’m so glad there’s a night time soap back on the air. I grew up in the 80′s so although some think Dallas isn’t a great show, they obviously weren’t around when “Who Shot J.R.?” was the biggest thing since ice cream. I’d rather watch Dallas than all of these crappy reality shows.

  • Rono

    Syfy was good. I enjoyed Paranormal witness

  • Alex Morgan #13

    Revenge on ABC and Dallas’ success so far on TNT will do a lot to help out the soap genre get back on its feet. I think this will not only make TNT more confident but other networks more confident to start getting back in the nighttime soap business.

    Dallas might just be one of the strongest shows on television as its done really well against the Olympics. All that panic a couple of weeks ago was for nothing.

    Nobody does a season finale cliffhanger better than Dallas. I think Dallas will return this winter huge but TNT should get another soap in development for next summer.

    I am very interested to see how Melissa & Joey and Baby Daddy do without the Olympic competition the next three weeks as their seasons come to a close.
