On this day in 1978, Dallas premiered on CBS. It began as a miniseries but was quickly turned into a regular series for the fall season after folks got a look at the ratings.
The series became a cultural touchstone, lasting the entire decade of the Eighties before concluding a long run in May 1991.
It's available on DVD and in streaming on IMDB Freeview. Would anyone like to see us devote an episode of the podcast to this iconic nighttime soap?
