1980: The Nation Discovers Who Shot J.R.
November 21, 2017
| By TV WW
This day in 1980 marked the resolution of one of television's most unforgettable cliffhangers: Who Shot J.R.?The previous season of the soapy primetime drama, Dallas, ended with an unseen gunman shooting Larry Hagman's J.R. Ewing — twice. Viewers were left wondering which of Ewing's many advisaries had pulled the trigger (not to mention whether J.R. had survived the assault). Over the summer, "Who Shot J.R.?"
Baltimore Rising finds little rays of optimism and hope in the case of Freddie Gray (below), a place where few people would even think to look. Sonja Sohn’s 90-minute documentary, which premieres Monday at 8 p.m. ET on HBO, has dozens of Baltimoreans talking about the man who suffered fatal injuries in police custody after his April 2015 arrest, and the street rampage his death triggered. Sohn works hard not to take sides, which puts her in a distinct minority where the Gray case is concerned.
The Big Hero 6 team will add a seventh hero, in a way, when it moves from theaters to television. That seventh hero, say executive producers Mark McCorkle and Bob Schooley, would be science. Big Hero 6, the TV series, launches Monday at 8 p.m. ET on the Disney Channel and Disney XD with a one-hour animated movie appropriately titled Baymax Returns.
Super underdog Pitt punching unbeaten Miami in the mouth all game long. Looking like they've got this one as color drains from Hurricanes. Would leave door wide open for alma mater #Badgers to vault into top 4. But can never take a rivalry game for granted. At Minnesota tomorrow.
From atop the Acropolis on last day of sojourn. Coming soon: the marathon 4 airport, Thanksgiving Day trip back home. Hoping not to again encounter one of lower forms of life -- the start to stop seat back recliner. Or am I just being churlish? 🤓 https://t.co/tVYrXmgx3F
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
