TNT's "Dallas" Update Premieres Wednesday Night

Peter Larsen/WireImage(NEW YORK) -- The Ewings are back.  TNT launches its update of the popular 1978–1991 drama Dallas Wednesday night at 9:00 p.m. Eastern time with a two-hour episode.

Larry Hagman returns as the scheming oil tycoon J.R. Ewing.  He's joined by his former co-stars Patrick Duffy, who plays his brother, Bobby Ewing, and Linda Gray, who plays J.R.'s wife, Sue Ellen Ewing. The new Dallas series also introduces TV viewers to a new generation of Ewings.

Gray says she had some reservations about the project when she was approached about reprising her role.

She says she wondered, "What was it going to be?  Sleazy?  Tacky?  What were they going to do?  And just drag us in to be these characters that people remember to start off the show and then sort of whittle us away?"

Duffy recalls that he thought the script for the pilot was "brilliant," though he adds that he, Gray and Hagman had "this unspoken agreement that none of us would have done the show if the other two had turned it down."

Dallas also stars Josh Henderson, Jesse Metcalfe, Jordana Brewster and Brenda Strong.

The show, which airs at 8:00 p.m. ET, features performances by a very pregnant Mariah Carey, Glee star Matthew Morrison, opera star Andrea Bocelli, Annie Lennox, and Miranda Cosgrove, and is hosted by Ellen DeGeneres.

The show was filmed at the National Building Museum in Washington, D.C. in front of an audience that included President Obama, Michelle Obama, and their two daughters.  The first family joins all the performers onstage at the end, and watch closely when that happens -- that's when, according to Showbiz411.com, you may be able to see Carey turn to the Obamas and whisper that she's expecting twins,  making the first couple among the first to know the news.

Carey opens the show with one of the original songs from her Christmas album, "One Child."  She also sings "O Come All Ye Faithful" during the big finale.  Annie Lennox performs "Universal Child" from her holiday album, A Christmas Cornucopia, as well as the standard "Gloria in Excelsis Deo."  Matthew Morrison will be seen strumming a ukulele and sang, "Mele Kalikimaka," a Hawaiian Christmas tune.
