Classic Dallas TV Intro Starring Iowa Women’s Basketball [WATCH]
If you're old enough to remember the TV show 'Dallas' you remember how HUGE of a hit show it was. The prime-time TV soap opera aired from 1978 to 1991. The show followed the life of the Ewing family, an affluent Texas family that owned Ewing Oil and the cattle ranching land of Southfork. The show was filled with drama, feuds, and of course, one of the best cliffhangers in television history. Who shot J.R.? J.R. Ewing was portrayed by the legendary Larry Hagman, and the cliffhanger episode featuring him being shot still ranks as the second-highest primetime broadcast in history!
'Dallas' came to an end in 1991, but the show still ranks as one of the longest-running shows in primetime TV history with 357 episodes. It also spawned the spin-off series Knots Landing in 1979. That show lasted 14 seasons on the air! So what does a TV show from the 1980s have to do with the Iowa women's basketball team? The Hawkeyes are in the Final Four and this year's big event is being held in, you guessed it, Dallas, Texas.
