A lot of people couldn't wait to welcome back the Ewings.

6.9 million viewers watched the premiere of TNT's reboot of the '80s nighttime soap "Dallas" which, according to the network, not only made it the most-watched show on basic cable, but beat out all network shows in its time slot.

Former "Dallas" cast members Larry Hagman and Patrick Duffy star in the remake, along with new cast members Jordana Brewster and Jesse Metcalfe.
