It looks like fans were waiting for the return of "Dallas."
The Wednesday night premiere of TNT's updated version of the '80s smash scored 6.8 million viewers, which makes it the top scripted cable series debut of the year, according to Entertainment Weekly.
"If you were a fan of the original 'Dallas,' once you hear that iconic theme song start in the new TNT iteration — complete with split-screen images — resistance may be futile," Boston Globe critic Sarah Rodman said of the show.
