On March 4, 2013, Dallas fans once again found themselves asking, “Who shot J.R.?” But this time, they knew he wouldn’t survive. How did exec producers Cynthia Cidre and Michael R. Robin orchestrate J.R. Ewing’s final scene without their beloved star, the late Larry Hagman? How did they decide to alter the show’s iconic theme song for the following episode to honor both the character and the actor? They revealed all to EW.com last winter. Revisit the conversation below.

Entertainment Weekly: What was the actual »

Various networks have begun ironing out their midseason schedules and have started locking down premiere dates.
First up, TNT has set the this season of "Dallas" for a debut at 9Pm on February 24th. Patrick Duffy returns as Bobby Ewing, now the senior member of the clan following the death of J.R. Ewing (Larry Hagman).
Then there's ABC. Taking a break over the holidays, dramas "Grey’s Anatomy" and "Scandal" are scheduled to return on February 27th. "Once Upon a Time" and "Revenge" will be back on March 9th but the latter will be moved to the 10pm slot.
Their schedule kicks off early in the new year starting with cooking competition series "The Taste" and the eight-part Cold War-set limited series "The Assets" which both debut on Thursday January 2nd.
The following Monday January 6th sees the return of "The Bachelor", followed the next day by the eight »

“Dallas” will return for its third season on Monday, Feb. 24, TNT announced. The third season will find Bobby Ewing (Patrick Duffy) taking on the role of patriarch after the death of J.R. Ewing. The actor who played him, Larry Hagman, died after a fight with leukemia last November. Linda Gray returns as Sue Ellen Ewing, with Josh Henderson, Jesse Metcalfe and Jordana Brewster among those rounding out the cast. The show averaged 3.8 million viewers for its Season 2 episodes.

A bit later than anticipated, "Dallas" still will restart all the usual drama at Southfork reasonably early in the new year.
Season 3 of the TNT reboot will begin Monday, Feb. 24 -- marking the first time in the history of the franchise, including the original 1978-91 CBS run -- that a year of the serial will begin without J.R. Ewing present as a major character. He died last season ... as did his portrayer, Larry Hagman, a year ago while those episodes were in production.
That doesn't mean there still isn't enough scheming to go around, though. The sons of J.R. and Bobby (Patrick Duffy), John Ross (Josh Henderson) and Christopher (Jesse Metcalfe), remain at odds with each other -- reinforced by their romances with the woman who's now an ex of both of them, Elena (Jordana Brewster).

TNT's Dallas will kick off its third season — the first without the late Larry Hagman as J.R. — on Monday, Feb. 24 at 9/8c. The season will start with a run of eight episodes before going on hiatus and returning in the summer with seven more.
"We will have two season openers and two cliffhangers," teases showrunner Cynthia Cidre. "We have tried this season to make the show more about Ewing family conflicts — secrets, lies and betrayals. And I think we have succeeded."

The country music superstar headlines a live, three-hour NBC telecast of the Rodgers & Hammerstein musical Thursday, Dec. 5. Oscar, Emmy and Grammy winner Andrews -- whose classic 1965 movie version gets its traditional ABC holiday airing Sunday, Dec. 22 -- says she's interested to see how the new production goes, particularly because of the live aspect (in the eastern half of the country).
"Fifty years later, it's time somebody had another crack at it," Andrews tells Zap2it. "I had the best time of my life doing it, and it did wonderful things for me. I think it's great that it's being done again, but doing it live must be so daunting for Carrie.

Another new face is about to collide with the Ewings at Southfork.
Best-known for roles in Spanish-language movies and TV series -- though he also was seen in NBC's summer show "Camp" -- Argentine performer Juan Pablo Di Pace will be a regular on TNT's "Dallas" reboot when it makes its return for Season 3, expected early in the new year.
He's likely to be a real force for Bobby (Patrick Duffy), Sue Ellen (Linda Gray) and company to contend with, since his character is a stylish and sexy billonaiire who apparently has two sides: one loaded with charm and humor, the other reflecting more sinister tendencies.
Di Pace also appeared with such notables as Meryl Streep, Pierce Brosnan and Colin Firth in the 2008 movie of the hit musical "Mamma Mia!" Adding him to "Dallas" as a powerful Ewing foe likely is a move to maintain the type of conflict that »
After last night’s Glee, an emotional tribute to Finn Hudson (without revealing his cause of death but rather focusing on his life), we decided to look back at how other television shows have handled a death in the family. The scenario can be traced back to Dan Blocker’s unexpected death before filming began on Bonanza’s final season. As a result, Bonanza was one of the first (if not the first) television show to address an actor’s death, and it did so by killing off Hoss, Blocker’s character. Many shows have followed that same path, while »

While Cory Monteith, James Gandolfini, Jean Stapleton, Jonathan Winters and Gary David Goldberg were memorialized with individual segments during the 2013 Emmys, the late Dallas star Larry Hagman was seen for only a few brief seconds during the show's In Memoriam slide show. "How I felt last night watching [the Emmys] was not anger, it was disappointment," Hagman's son, Preston Hagman, told Entertainment Tonight.

As much as we cherish the memory of the departed stars, I can’t imagine that signature line was the producers’ intention.
The fact that sorrow and even anger overshadowed the separate tributes to James Gandolfini, Gary David Goldberg, Jean Stapleton, Jonathan Winters and, most controversially, Cory Monteith, was the product of several miscalculations, and as gloomy as the subject might be, it’s worth analyzing where things went wrong.
1) The downside of advance notice
The uncomfortable, often nasty and therefore decidedly unfortunate angst centered on the special tributes would have been avoided had the Academy and CBS chosen not to publicize them beforehand. And the only reason to publicize them is for precisely the reason many people objected »

Sunday night's Emmy Awards telecast tried to do something a little different by singling out five stars who had recently passed away and independently eulogizing them with anecdotes from their respective former co-stars and friends. The choice courted controversy from the start, especially with Glee's Cory Monteith being one of the stars chosen to be remembered, since many believed that more established stars -- such as Dallas and I Dream of Jeannie favorite Larry Hagman -- were passed over. Et exclusively sat down with Hagman's son, Preston Hagman, to get his take on the matter, and he declared, "If you're going to respect and recognize them, then do it correctly."

The stars remembered with a special moment on last night's telecast were James Gandolfini, Jonathan Winters, Jean Stapleton, Family Ties creator Gary David Goldberg, and Monteith. Other stars fondly remembered in the In Memoriam montage included Hagman, [link »
The Emmys snubbed legendary TV stars Jack Klugman and Larry Hagman, but included Cory Monteith and that has raised some ire from Klugman's son and many TV viewers sounding off on social media. Cory Monteith's resume is fairly thin compared to Jack Klugman and Larry Hagman, he appeared on 81 episodes of Glee, a series that was renewed for a fifth season by Fox. Glee finished last year at number 50 overall in the ratings and averaged just over 8 million viewers per episode. With that in mind, Jack Klugman's son said he didn't believe Cory Monteith deserved to be honored at the 65th Primetime Emmy Awards in Los Angeles held on Sunday night (Sept. 22, 2013) if his father wasn't. The late 'Odd Couple' star's son Adam Klugman has criticized organizers of the ceremony for planning a special tribute to the 'Glee' star, 31, who was found dead in his hotel room in »
From the moment it was announced that this year’s Primetime Emmy Awards would handle the annual In Memoriam segment differently, by singling out certain fallen stars for special remembrance, many cried foul.
And in its actual execution, the new approach didn’t earn many fans either.

The good news is that the Emmys remain the same as ever, a paradoxical mix of predictability and left-field choices that only the voters themselves seem to understand. The bad news? Well, this year the ceremony seemed to get a little dark.
The show started off with host Neil Patrick Harris in a room full of TVs to binge watch a whole season’s worth of shows, the majority of which seemed to air on CBS and affiliated cable channels (obviously, since this year the Emmys were on CBS). The bit was about as interesting as it sounds, with only one good line (“There’s no eye-stabbing in show business, only back stabbing”), so I was actually grateful when I got to see the Emmy stage itself and heard what was sure to be the usual awards’ show opening monologue patter.

Well, that was… oddly somber!
Though the 2013 Emmy Awards gave us more than a few unexpected triumphs, the Twitter consensus is correct: The ceremony felt sad, and that’s because the otherwise rapid-fire award handout was stopped in its tracks every 15 minutes by a new “In Memoriam” tribute.
Edie Falco toasted James Gandolfini and cried. Jane Lynch (looking fabulous) toasted Cory Monteith and teared up. Robin Williams trembled through a Jonathan Winters memorial. Michael J. Fox told us about the Family Ties creator who changed his life. Rob Reiner lamented Jean Stapleton‘s death by comparing it to her character Edith Bunker‘s demise in the early ’80s. That was like a double death. Then we had a full-length “In Memoriam” reel on top of it all where we had to think about Larry Hagman‘s late studliness too. Oh, mortality! Because we could not stop for Death, He kindly »

The 65th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards, hosted by Neil Patrick Harris, aired on Sunday evening and now we have the list of winners (in red) and nominees from the event. Check it out below and let us know if you agree with the results. "Breaking Bad" took home the award in the best drama series, beating such shows as "Downton Abbey," "Game of Thrones," "Homeland," House of Cards" and "Mad Men." But the biggest surprise of the evening was that "Breaking Bad" star Bryan Cranston didn't win for best actor in a drama series. That award went to Jeff Daniels for "The Newsroom." Claire Danes won for best actress in a drama series for her work on "Homeland." The actress won the same award last year. And this year marks the first time a show not airing on television has received nominations. That show is "House of Cards," which is exclusive to Netflix. »
In a year that found a lot of unexpected upsets, Breaking Bad, Modern Family and Behind the Candelabra were the big winners at The 65th Primetime Emmy Awards Sunday night, airing live from the Nokia Theater in downtown Los Angeles. Read on for the recap…

A true victory for a series in its final season, AMC's Breaking Bad was named Outstanding Drama over Mad Men, Game of Thrones, House of Cards, Homeland and Downton Abbey. Show creator Vince Gilligan gasped, "I did not see this coming. I thought it was going to be House of Cards..." Meanwhile, HBO's Behind the Candelabra was named Outstanding Movie or Miniseries. The Liberace biopic earned its star Michael Douglas his first Emmy in the title role and also gave director Steven Soderbergh his first shiny lady. Upon winning »
Special tributes during the Primetime Emmys to Cory Monteith, James Gandolfini, Jean Stapleton, Jonathan Winters and Gary David Goldberg, each of whom passed away in the past year, came as leadouts to commercials, beginning nearly 30 minutes into the ceremony.
“I’m here to say that all that warmth and that charm, that open-hearted quality we loved him for, was no act,” Lynch said, adding that his death was a reminder of the “painful” effects of addiction.
“For a generation that loved Cory so, this gifted and wonderful young man was worthy of your love,” Lynch said.
“His portrayal of Tony Soprano had such depth and dimension that a lot of people had trouble believing that’s not really who he was,” Falco said. “Jim was quite different. »

While her son was chosen for a special remembrance, television personalities such as The Odd Couple's Jack Klugman and Dallas' Larry Hagman were not.

The suits who run the Emmys had to make a hard choice in deciding which dead actor to honor-- a TV icon who has won multiple Emmys, or a young actor with no Emmys who is now as famous for being a drug addict as a TV star. They chose door number 2. It's interesting. We've spoken with several people who have won Emmys who are upset with the decision to give a special honor to »
