Dallas 2012  (c) TNTPrimetime soaper, Dallas 2.0 (aka the reboot of the 1978 primetime soap, Dallas) premiered on TNT last night to 6.86 million viewers. It is the the top scripted series premiere on cable in 2012, according to TNT, but a still a far cry from the 33 million who tuned in to the CBS series finale back in 1991.

But that was then. This is now! And 6.8 million viewers is music to TNT's ears.

Dallas is TNT's third series in as many years to premiere as the most-watched scripted cable debut year-to-date, following 2011's Falling Skies and 2010's Rizzoli & Isles.

Dallas stars Larry Hagman returning in the role he created, J.R. Ewing, and Patrick Duffy (Stephen, The Bold and the Beautiful), as Bobby Ewing. Jesse Metcalf (John, Desperate Housewives; Miguel, Passions) stars as the young upstart, Chris Ewing and Jordana Brewster (ex Nikki, As the World Turns) as the beautiful Elena Ramos.

If you missed the 2-hour premiere, you can see it on line.

Past Blast

Days of our Lives' Brendan Michael Coughlin enjoys playing Tad and being a new dad

When asked what it is like to play Tad on Days of our Lives, Brendan Michael Coughlin shouts exuberantly, "I love him!"

Coughlin has been playing the so-called behind the scenes instigator for the last two years. He has no family that is ever mentioned on the show, but he is there. He came on as Will's (Guy Wilson) best friend, but when it became clear that Will was gay, Tad did everything but bash and degrade and mock him. The irony? At the recent wedding of Will and Sonny (Freddie Smith), he was best man. Go figure!

"I know. It has been a wild ride. I did a whole turn around, and I cannot tell you how much I enjoyed doing the wedding. I really enjoy playing this guy. He is a total goof-off. He means well, but is always on the wrong side of the rope." Coughlin said. "I have grown to love him. He is comic relief. I always had dramatic roles, so this is fun."
