About this Article

"Dallas" viewers, however braced they are for J.R. Ewing's demise, will have to reckon with the loss of arguably TV's greatest villain, and bid farewell to the actor, Larry Hagman. This double loss would be a burden for any show. "Dallas," returning at 8 p.m. Monday, comes fully loaded. "I think viewers want closure," said Linda Gray. "They want to mourn Larry Hagman and J.R. Ewing." But all that comes later.
