NEW YORK (CBS NEWS) - TNT’s reboot of the landmark series “Dallas” premiered Wednesday to an average audience of 6.8 million viewers, making it the No. 1 scripted series premiere on cable so far this year, according to reports.

The show, based on the drama first broadcast in 1978, lured in 1.9 million in the most desired demographic, adults 18 to 49, reports Entertainment Weekly.

TNT’s “Dallas” features the next generation of Ewings — John Ross Ewing (Josh Henderson), the son of J.R. and Sue Ellen, and Bobby’s son Christopher (Jesse Metcalfe).
