Dance Your Arse Off – A Ratings Disaster

This is not the news Channel 9 executives wanted to hear this morning – that their new reality TV show Dance Your Arse Off, did not go as well as they thought.

Crikey writes viewers rejected Dance Your Ass Off as it averaged 797,000 for the 90 minutes last night … a distant third. It helped Nine run third nationally and fourth in Adelaide and Perth behind the ABC.

Personally I think they should let it run for a few weeks before putting it into a later time slot, as the Twitter chatter would indicate the concept of the show wasn’t as grotesque as would be believed.

I surprisingly quite enjoyed it see post Dance Your Arse Off – More Like Laugh Your Tits Off as the dancers were good, with engaging personalities and the host and judges managed to appear genuine.

Well if Nine does decide to pull it can they replace it with another reality TV show in their stable – Survivor?

I didn’t watch the ‘Dance your Ass off’ thing. Seems a bit freak showish to me, although you say it doesn’t come across like that at all. But, Survivor, yes please!

I’d rather watch The Mole at least you got to see a bit of the countryside, problem was it got a bit easy to pick in the last series, but that should be easy to fix. the other thing was it gave the viewer a chance to win something for a change

I never saw The Mole and I kind of wish I had. Sourkraut if you have Foxtel – Arena is commencing Survivor – the Cook Islands starting from tonight. this was the season that got me back into the show.
Intelligent casting and not the ususual dumbo’s and page 3 models running around. Highly recommended.
