31 Day TV Challenge: Day 5
Day 5 of the 31 Day TV Challenge: The Greatest Moment in TV History. The one that started it all. It took a popular nighttime drama to the heights of world-wide acclaim. It led to months of speculation, gamblers betting on the outcome, TV and media coverage looking at every angle of the story. It has been parodied, copied, and built upon. The nighttime soaps would never be the same as each tried to outdo the others for years to come. It grew beyond the nighttime soaps, because even other dramas, sitcoms, and animated shows have left us with summer cliffhangers that wouldn't be answered until the following fall. They all owe a debt to the shot heard 'round the world. DALLAS gave us "Who Shot J.R.?"
