Dallas: J.R. Ewing - The Memorial

All Hail J.R. Ewing

The iconic CBS television show "Dallas" is experiencing a fine rebirth during its second season on TNT, which I believe is a part of the same parent company. 

As all fans of the series know, Larry Hagman passed away in November 2012. With that in mind the producer had to make a choice as to how to handle the J.R. Ewing character's future. 

No one could ever supplant Hagman's portrayal of the ultimate bad guy and so it was determined to have another cliffhanger where J.R. is shot. This time it appears to be fatal, as a memorial will be held at 9 p.m. EST. 

Before anyone passes judgement on this plot line choice, let's see how it plays out. Also keep in mind that Hagman himself likely had a hand in deciding the fate of his character. 

Here is my most recent Yahoo feature article on Dallas and the Legacy of J.R. Ewing.
