TV Notes: ‘Dallas’ bids farewell to J.R.
“DALLAS”: Larry Hagman may have died late last year, but his TV alter-ego, the dastardly J.R. Ewing, will be laid to rest this week. And, fittingly, it promises to be a grand farewell for one of prime time’s greatest anti-heroes. The warring Ewings, including Bobby (Patrick Duffy) and Sue Ellen (Linda Gray), set aside their differences long enough to mourn. They’re joined by several original “Dallas” alums, including Charlene Tilton, Ted Shackelford and Steve Kanaly. But, it’s J.R., of course, who has the last word as a shocking revelation about him surfaces. 9 p.m. Monday, TNT.
SUNDAY: “Army Wives” gets a major reboot as Season 7 opens. Kim Delaney is out and several new cast members are in, including Brooke Shields, R&B star Ashanti, Torrey DeVitto, and former teen heartthrob Jesse McCartney. 9 p.m., Lifetime.
MONDAY: Decision time is finally here for hunky Sean Lowe on “The Bachelor.” Does he propose to either Catherine or Lindsay? Or does he just continue to fall in love with his own alluring abs? 8 p.m., ABC.
