'Dallas' episode reaches for a record in ratings

Based on overnight Nielsen ratings from New York, Chicago, and Los Angeles, it appears certain that the episode, which revealed that "Kristin" (Mary Crosby) shot J. R., is certainly the highest-rated episode of any regularly scheduled TV series, a record previously held by the final episode of "The Fugitive" in 1967.
