Did the Dallas reunion movies even do that well in the 1990s? I don't remember but I don't think they were huge.

I think the first one " J.R. Returns" had huge ratings, but the second " War Of The Ewings" tanked.

JR Returns ranked in the low teens - better than CBS was doing with regular series on Fridays, but a far cry from the high ratings the series got at its peak. CBS was happy enough with it to order a sequel. Which tanked as SoapDope pointed out.

Thank you both for clarifying. I know I watched the first one. I don't remember watching the sequel.

I watched both and I thought the second one was better "War of the Ewings".  I think I have both on dvd.

The ratings weren't great for either one. The show ended with 22.0 for the finale. Only 13.4 returned five years later. I didn't think the script was that great for the return episode.

Was KK ill during the filming of the first reunion movie? I remember his voice sounding strained/shaky.

It took me out seeing J.R. rolling around with Monica Colby. I mean, God bless Tracy Scoggins, but for a reunion movie of an iconic ‘80s primetime soap, I didn’t like them mixing brands.

If you mean her, it is "Laurie" (actress: Dawn Cody), Michael's pregnant wife

In the Knots reunion, the Laurie character was a strange addition. At the anniversary party at Val's house when Karen said Hi to her, she made a face and then Diana walked up and it cut to their conversation. At the end Laurie is pregnant. Her character really was a nothing burger.

You could tell just by the title, “JR Returns,” that the producers were making the same mistake that they did in the last few years of the series: making JR the exclusive focus as opposed to the ensemble. They only had four returning original cast members: Larry Hagman, Patrick Duffy, Linda Gray, and Ken Kercheval. And it was essentially “The JR Show” by that time.
