Dallas was one of the first television series to be distributed globally. It was eventually translated or dubbed into 67 languages and has aired in over 90 countries, which is a television record.
Dallas holds the record for highest rated episode internationally -- 360 million viewers tuned into to the infamous "Who Done It?" episode in which the "Who Shot J.R.?" question was answered.
Dallas was spun-off into Knot's Landing which aired from 1979 to 1993.
The Dallas miniseries was shot on location in Dallas, Texas. Subsequent seasons were filmed in Hollywood with exterior shots from Parker, Texas.
The Southfork Ranch location where the miniseries was filmed was destroyed in a fire.
During the reign of the communist government in Romania during the 1980s, Dallas was broadcast in order to show citizens of Romania that capitalism and democracy were terrible concepts.
Larry Hagman (J.R. Ewing) is the only actor to appear in all 357 episodes. Patrick Duffy (Bobby Ewing) had the second most appearances, with 327 of the 357 episodes.
When the infamous Bobby in the shower scene was filmed, Patrick Duffy filmed a national advertisement for Irish Spring soap in order to keep the shocking plot line a secret.
David Jacobs, the creator of the series, originally created Knots Landing prior to Dallas. However, CBS wanted a primetime soap opera so Dallas was produced first. Once Dallas became a success, Knots Landing was revisited and produced.
