J.R. Ewing will be memorialized on the revitalized Dallas series on the TNT network. While no air date has yet been set, there will be a funeral for the iconic character that had been played by Larry Hagman until his unexpected death from cancer in November. Fifteen episodes will comprise the second season of which Hagman appears in six. The show returns in late January.

ABC shelved Weird Desk, an anticipated summer series of the paranormal investigation variety. Reasons are not clear but speculation surrounds some unhappiness from Marvel about the project.
