I believe I posted this in the wrong place before. Here's another try. It’s mentioned how the episode that revealed who shot J.R. received the largest viewing audience up to that time. The shooter was revealed a few episodes into the start of the season. I would have assumed the first episode of the new season and new season in general would have drawn huge ratings. So, in order for that one episode to get such huge ratings, was it advertised ahead of time that the shooter would be revealed on that particular episode?
