    Dallas 9 p.m., TNT

    He has been shot a number of times, But last week, J.R. got shot for good, now that Larry Hagman is gone. This week, “Dallas” is airing the funeral episode, with a number of faces from the series’ past on hand, including Charlene Tilton (Lucy Ewing), Ken Kercheval (Cliff Barnes), Ted Shackelford (Gary Ewing), Deborah Shelton (Mandy Winger), and Steve Kanaly (Ray Krebbs). Of course, after Monday’s episode, the rest of the season will dwell on an old question: Who shot J.R.?

    Edie Falco’s series returns for season 5 on April 14, and so Showtime is re-airing season 4 in preparation. And it is a great season that finally gives viewers some relief after three seasons of Jackie’s downward spiral. I’ve written about how “Breaking Bad” has made character change believable by showing us each small step in Walt’s development. “Nurse Jackie” has been almost as good, as it has resisted any quick fixes for Jackie’s addiction issues, even after she gets sober. Bobby Cannavale and his son, Jake Cannavale, put in powerful performances as Jackie’s nasty new boss and her rehab buddy, respectively.
