Fans of the reboot of “Dallas” are asking TNT to reconsider its cancellation of the soapy drama, reports The New York Times.
An online petition has been started in an effort to round up fans of the show. As of Tuesday morning, more than 54,500 people had signed the petition, more than the goal of 44,505 signatures.
The Times notes: “TNT based its decision on declining ratings for the series, which brought the tale of the oil-rich Ewing clan into the next generation. The show rode interest in the old series to an enormous premiere audience of seven million viewers. This season’s finale dropped to 1.7 million. The show also fell 38 percent this season among the younger viewers preferred by advertisers.”
