Dance Your Ass Off – Channel Nine’s New Show

No news on when Channel Nine will show a season of Survivor, but they are quite prepared to show their new reality TV show they have bought called Dance Your Ass Off.

The show is about 12 fatties dancing to lose weight. Each contestant is paired with a professional dance partner who will train him or her for weekly stage performances – ranging from Hip Hop, to Ballroom and even Pole Dancing! Then they shake and rattle their rolls in front of a live studio audience and a panel of expert judges. The judges score the routines, and then the contestants weigh in to reveal their weekly weight loss. The dance score and the weight loss are combined for an overall score, which determines who is sent home each week.

I am excited. NOT. I don’t even think it will be in the ‘it is so bad it is good category’ of TV shows.

Injera has done some research and found this article on Jezebel which shows that Channel Nine might yet again have a mega dud on its hands. It also has a routine from the first episode on it if you cannot wait to see what it is all about. Or watch the trailer below.

Looks like something I’d probably laugh my head off for the first episode then not bother with it ever again.

Oh, Nine. How crass. Exactly what demographic is this aimed at?

Why screen this crap when you could be screening the missing series of Survivor?

Whoever looks after reality tv at Nine needs to be ‘given the Eddie’.

Sounds like total shite. Who did Nine buy this off? The Shopping Channel?

I will only watch if the theme music is Funkadelic’s Get Off Your Ass and Jam….”Shit, Goddamn, Get of Your ASS and Jam”. But somehow I suspect this wont be the case.
