The third episode of the drama starring Larry Hagman, Patrick Duffy and Linda Gray saw ratings hit a new low. Dallas has been moved from its 9pm slot by Channel 5, to 11pm, following disappointing overnight ratings for the first two episodes of its second season.
If the move to 11pm was designed to increase ratings it failed; just 327,000 viewers watched Dallas last night. Given its late time-slot a large portion of the audience will have recorded the episode or may have been unaware its time-slot had changed.
Yesterday it was revealed that the season two premier of Dallas on Channel 5 had a final rating figure of 1.24 million viewers – up considerably on its original overnight figure.
