    !!! So disappointed !!! I'm an avid Dallas fan but haven't been able to watch all the episodes. So, here I am hoping to have a much looked forward to Dallas catch up as stuck in doors due to the snow, only to find episodes 3 etc 'no longer available' - POOR! PLEASE someone - has anyone YouTubed it??? Come on Channel 5 "ON DEMAND" - please extend the viewing times?

    So jumping on the badwagon with everyone else, I can't watch Dallas at the new time, I come on here to catch up with it from when the viewing time changed, and it is "no longer available for viewing" so unless I only want to watch last nights, and not the previous episodes to actually know whats going on its fine. Why change the time, its quite clear nobody is happy with it and nobody can watch it or catch up with it on here ! 5 on demand is actually pointless when its clearly not ON DEMAND !

    This is the first time I have tried to use demand 5 and what a waste of time. I wanted to catch up on a couple of episodes I missed in February of the fantastic show Dallas and can't get them. What's the point if they are not kept on for at least a month. Why did they change the time slot, dallas is great both old and new series. Sad about larry hagman, he was a fantastic actor as JR. Won't be bothering with demand 5 again though.

    This Channel 5 on Demand is absolute rubbish!! It never lets me watch the full programme without it either crashing or buffering for at least 5 minute! I love Dallas and Channel 5 definitely made the wrong decision of putting it on at 11! Very disappointed!

    I cant believe I am only half way through and it has crashed 6 times, and why do you have to sit through the adverts every time it reboots! I loved this programme and am very disappointed the only way that I can watch it is by using this shoddy service because it has been moved so late.

    True, 5 should've advertised the scheduling change better. However I've just watched the episode from 26 Feb with NO ads and only about 30 seconds of buffering. So 5 must've been listening to your complaints. Come on 5 you're half way there. Back to 9pm please and don't forget to advertise when Jr's last episode is! Virgin Media's series catch up (not 5 OD) is great - when you can find it.

    This demand 5 is pants. firstly Channel 5 couldn't of advertised well that Dallas was back on?? Only found it by chance last night. Thought great get the catch up on 5 OD - NO CHANCE! WHYis other channel like the BBC and ITV you can get the series catch up but not here? Not good business sense to me or keeping your viewers happy. Channel 5 I am very disappointed.

    funny how five say dallas had no viwers however if you look at barb.co.uk the first 2 weeks it was on in the NORMAL 9PM slot it had more than 1.2million however when it was moved they vanished as its clear five nor barb count the online viewings, thats if you can view it with demand five being built by a moron at five that had his or her training in 1871! it really is the worst on demand service available, thats if it is available of course, most of the time its useless just like fives customer service department!!!! no one at five gives a stuff, a ten year ols could run this channel better!

    Dallas has made a fantastic come back - but why did Channel 5 change to the later time?? I was a big fan, but the time change means a lost customer . I have tried numerous times to watch episodes on Demand 5 - but it never works. Please Channel 5 change the time back and fix Demand 5.

    Any chance we can have this back at 9pm? It's bad enough that the US is a week ahead but I've just seen on twitter that JR is missing from his hotel in Abu Dhabi. How long will we have to wait to find out what happens? I have to get up at 6am for work so staying up until midnight isn't an option.

    I can't watch anything on Demand 5 without having to refresh the page every 5-10 minutes which means sitting through the adverts over and over again. It's taken almost 90 minutes to watch this episode of Dallas! Put it back on at 9pm so I can watch it on TV!!! I HATE DEMAND 5.

    Channel 5 - your schedulers are clueless as to what the viewers want to see ... Dallas has a huge fan base and should be on at a prime time slot instead of the constant repeats and rubbish currently showing. Airing the first run of the show so late on a Tuesday, and even the 'second chance' repeat on a Sunday night is again on so late it really beggars belief. Sort it out!

    channel 5 you have it wrong about jr's final scenes being broadcast this tuesday at 22.55. America is broadcasting them in episode 7 tomorrow which we'll see next week! I've already seen episode 6 and it's a brilliant episode; true Dallas style! You're all in for a treat.

    It is really surprising that Channel 5 are trying to kill this show. Maybe internal politics re: some idiot thinking that the show relies on the 2 mins that Larry Hagman was capable of doing? Dallas should be on Friday at 9pm, or even 8pm with the occasional 5 seconds of cuts! As for Demand 5 weaknesses, the BBC should be forced to share iPlayer technology. I don't think it is fair to ask Channel 5 to compete with a public money-funded channel in this respect.

    Had a bit of trouble, 3rd time lucky getting to view whole episode in one sitting. Still would prefer to watch on my tv than the laptop, as we all know 1055/11pm is too late for working people. The series is great though, and im glad i have the ability to watch on demand but i hate having to watch the 2nd and 3rd attempt from the start, i have to schedule 1hr 30min to watch a 40 minute progamme. please show at an earlier time on c5

    Goodness me! I've never come across so much moaning! The good thing about missing brilliant programmes like Dallas is that one can catch up any time they like via PC or mobile. So what if the time has been changed to 11pm? Switch on your pc on Wednesdays at 9pm and watch it then. Job done!

    presumably we are completely wasting our time putting comments on here about the way the programme keeps freezing. these are the same comments I saw after the first episode. No doubt C5 will blame us for using old hardware or our broadband providers for their slow service. The fact that the adverts change every time we 'refresh' the page, suggests otherwise. There is one good thing about the freezing, at least it allows us plenty of time to give our comments and feedback. Come on Channel 5 - stop winding us up and sort your site out.

    I agree with all the above comments. 11 pm is a rediculous time to put Dallas on as most people have to get up for work. I used to look forward to Dallas on a Tuesday evening at 9pm as there is nothing else worth watching. This was the best show on Channel 5 and you've gone and messed it up. Put it back on at 9 and listen to us!!!

    i read recently that Dallas is only brinng in 300,000 viewers this series compared to 3 million last series. Do all the comments above mean nothing, does this not tell you that b putting it on at such a late hour is affecting your viewer numbers. Inow have to watch it on the internet on catch up instead of when I used to watch it at 9pm. My friends and I used to look forward to it and to chat about it but a number of my friends have had to stop watching it completely due to the time change, no recording facilities and being unabe to watch it on an iPad. Use your common sense Channel 5.

    OK, it's very disappointing, but show Dallas at 11pm when few fans are still awake to watch it if you must - but at least provide a decent catch up service for us to watch it on. I CANNOT get past the initial advertisements without it freezing. AND if we are lucky enough to get it playing you only post the first 40mins of the show. Why have you bought the series if you're not committed to showing it to the viewing public. I suppose I'll have to wait until Christmas for the DVD! Thanks a lot Channel5. What a shower!

    I agree with all viewers comments. Channel 5 have not responded as to their motives for shifting the programme to 11pm, even when the consolidated viewing figures for episodes 1 & 2 were over a million. It's become, clear the idiots at Channel 5 are not fans of the show. In the USA the viewing figures are increasing week on week. Channel 5 - i think you need to job shadow with another major tv station. Listen & act on what people say.

    It is a stupid decision to put the show on at 11pm.

I understand you dont want to compete against tthe football thats why Friday is a good option. Do you agree?

Wow channel 5 you really messed up by moving the timeslot because the ratings were low, I bet they are even lower now! Also the fact that so many people are compaining about the move is very telling of the awful online catchup service you provide! If BBC moved my favourite show to 4am it wouldnt bother me as I know I could easily and efficiently watch it on BBC iPlayer when an dhow I wished with no technical problems! SORT IT OUT CHANNEL 5!

    Just wanted to add my agreement to the above. It is definitely part of Channel 5's plan to axe it from the schedule. Am wondering/fearing that this will be after next week's episode (the last with Larry Hagman). Dallas is an institution, I have watched it from the start (i.e. since it first aired in 1978)and it deserves more respect than this. Most galling is that it is now placed behind CSI. There are so many versions of CSI, but only one Dallas. Shame on you Channel 5 for not listening to our comments.

    Incredible to think that after all the marketing and hype before Dallas returned to our screens on Channel 5, some half witted TV scheduler would move the slot to 11pm on a week night! Larry Hagman must be turning in his grave... Even Chelsea give their managers more time to see how they go.

    Its bad enough that the show is now on so late but if Demand 5 was any good it would have made it a bit easier to swallow. However, Demand 5 - what a joke - it is impossible to watch due to crashing/freezing every 10 seconds, lasting for 1 min at a time - Bad joke, Demand 5 you should be ashamed of yourselves.

    Thanks channel 5, I missed the last couple of episodes as the move to a "twilight zone" timing on a different day wasn't advertised.Maybe I'm wrong but it doesn't appear as a catch up on another day or time on the regular channel so I am forced to use the on demand service. So, the new series had lower ratings, lets make the matter worse by not advertising it and moving it to when most working people are asleep!

    For goodness sake Channel 5! Move Dallas back to 9pm. Not even a repeat before 11am. Very angry and disappointed with this channel.

    so have attempted to watch last nights episode on demand and it has already crashed two times. I've complained the last two weeks about the programme being moved to 11pm without notice and it not being replaced by anything outstanding. So FYI - FROM NOW ON I WILL NOT WATCH ANYTHING ON 5 AS A MATTER OF PRINCIPLE!! Fed up Dallas fan that pays her TV licence!!

    I mailed them and complained and got the expected response that it's been moved because of poor ratings. Don't know about anyone else, but I didn't see any promotion of this new series ahead of it being aired, and when I saw it in the TV listings I thought it was a re-run of the first series of New Dallas. I caught on from the second episode, but then it was moved for the third. How many others didn't know this series was a new one?

    please put back Dallas back on 9pm or even 10pm, why move it to this ridiculous hour when folk are going to bed for work the next day. doing this will surely make the ratings go down.

    please put Dallas back on at 9.00. its the best programme on tv at present. it beats nashville anyday. ive been watching dallas since the early days and the new dallas is just as good, apart from the day and time. and please dont cut the programme. ive had to watch it on catch up as its on too late. please rethink and give your audience what they want.

    I really enjoy Dallas as I remember watching it as a young girl with my parents I am sad they are taking it off air over here to do with ratings but with the time it is on and changing the day to Tuesday no wonder they have lost ratings. I record it so that I can watch it the next day.. Change it back to Wednesday at 9pm and watch the ratings go back up.

    Me again. Thank you Channel 5 for making the show available on Demand 5. You have saved a VERY SMALL bit of your bacon. Oh, and I have come back on here to say thanks. What have you done to respond to your viewers. NOTHING. SHAME ON YOUR COMMUNITY MANAGER. What amuses and shocks me more is that you haven't bothered to respond to ANY of the comments made. That is very poor community management. You clearly DO NOT CARE ABOUT YOUR VIEWERS. Let me help you: 1) listen to what your viewers want 2) respond to show that you understand and care 3) then find a way to give them what they want 4) if you can't give them what they want, then work with them to work out a way to satisfy them DON'T just make the show available on Demand 5 and not acknowledge your viewers. At the end of the day, viewers are what provide the ratings which is what tour channel needs to show success. Get it right and you will have a loyal following. Get it wrong and watch people switch off.

    I agree with everything said in the above comments, this show used to air on Wed at 9pm, why not change it back, it was obviously working? To change it to a Tues night airing at 9pm it clashed with Vampire Diaries on ITV2 which is a very popular programme, and then to bump it to 11pm when the majority of people are in bed at that time including me is just utter bonkers, no wonder its losing viewers - to make matters worse I can't even catch up with last nights episode!

    no one at channel 5 listens to us, funny how they listen to all big brither viewers tho, so if anyone here , a dallas fan also watches big bruv, then lets not watch the one in the summer, im not watching five ever again except for Dallas, i hope the advertisers desert the channel in theyre droves, as no one else watches five do they? funny how five customer service say no one is watching dallas yet barb's official top ten for five have dallas always in the top ten, i think they need to employ someone that can count at five, shame they didnt promote dallas more , five will always be the loser channel, even sky has more viwers than five hahahahaha

    Sheer insanity moving Dallas from 9pm to 11pm (OK 22.55!) and now not even making it available on Demand5! Hopefully the next series rights will be acquired by the BBC (or ITV) and shown at a sensible time!

    This is not very impressive Channel 5. You're not thinking of your viewers at all....if you are going to change the time the show airs on TV to an anti-social time, then you need to make sure that it is made available to watch on Demand 5. That way you save face a little bit and don't lose viewers or reputation. I am hoping that we will be able to watch the programme later in the day? It would also help if someone from Channel 5 actually responded to these comments. Gone are the days that you can get away with not responding to your complainants. Very poor show Channel 5.

    I am so disappointed that I can't watch Dallas this morning on Demand - I have 4 kids and a full time job and airing Dallas at 11pm so that working folk cannot get to bed until midnight is very inconsiderate. I don't have this problem of not being able to catch up with BBC or ITV programmes the next day!

    I agree with all of the above comments. I couldn't stay awake last night to watch at 11 so thought I would watch it today on catch up and it's really frustrating to find it not available although last weeks was. What is the reason for putting it on at 11? It's not like it has been bumped to make room for some other super amazing new show. You must be losing customers over this stupidity.

    OMG. I watched last weeks episode on demand on my laptop the next morning. I have just tried to do the same this week and have got some load of rubbish about some programs not being able to be shown on demand 5. Well it was watchable on demand 5 last week so what has changed? I am so so annoyed right now. Unbelievable that you put it to 11pm and then stop us catching up on demand. There is only 1 more episode (next weeks) with the great Larry Hagman and Dallas will never be the same without him so maybe your plan is to axe it forever after this series. Fair enough if that is the case but at least you could have waited until his final episode to make it harder for fans to watch, out of respect for Larry the great JR Ewing if nothing else!!!

You wonder why people do not stay loyal to your viewings. Are you proposing to re-run it over the weekend at a proper time!!?? Someones head should role!! Come on Channel 5, re-think!

    what was the point of bring dallas back to then bump it to 11pm to watch and taking it of the demand service !!! its a brilliant made show which is now going to loose all of its fans kinda waste if all the expensive hype and of making it really if your shunting it to an 11pm slot and removeing it from demand you would be better removinmg all the crap programmes nobody watches that or all the teleshopping hours to fill slots and sort out the demand service otherwise theres no point in having that eitha !!!!the films are aleady on there 4 12 months or more just get it sorted channel 5 !!!

    If Channel 5 wish to transmit this series later due to guidance reasons then why not show it at 2200 rather than 2300 when folk are going to sleep? I have a series link set on my Tivo box, but this is not the same as watching it as originally broadcast.

    I suppose the shooting scene, the blood and the use of guns by a 'sympathetic' character have contributed to the decision to reschedule to a later time. It's taking me weeks to work out where the new episode is and when the repeat is shown, though. I think season two has picked up more of the spirit of the original and it's about the only TV I follow weekly now.

    Last week's episode of Dallas was watched by the lowest audience figures since the show returned. Could this be because of the idiotic decision to broadcast the show at 11pm. Try 8pm on Wednesdays similar to the bbc when the original series was shown.

    Apparently this episodeof Dallas is scheduled for 22.55 now! Does that mean that at least one Channel 5 scheduler has been noting comments and has 4.17% of a brain, I wonder!
