Network Ten Axes Everybody Dance Now

Everybody Dance Now is no more. Poor ratings since the show’s debut two weekends ago has had viewers wondering about its fate — would it get the chop? Would it move to Eleven? What about the dancers? — but yesterday afternoon Network Ten announced that it had been axed. James Warburton, CEO, said in a statement that Network Ten had been “trying new formats and creating more programming options. Unfortunately, we didn’t get the Everybody Dance Now format right . . . clearly it has not struck a chord with viewers.” He made note of the “professionalism and commitment” of host Sarah Murdoch and ‘Dance Masters’ Kelly Rowland and Jason Derülo, who had been flown in from the US to give the show some added star power. The worst part is that while the format hadn’t worked, the dance talent did, and they worked hard, and now many of them won’t have the opportunity to perform. The cast and crew are also out of work. Did you watch Everybody Dance Now?

I watched the first show as well and caught bits of the second episode. Codework, I agree that the "battle-speak," which at times got a bit "gangster," didn't quite work and didn't translate for an Australian audience. And we had just seen the acts dance - either audiences would've been impressed or not! Maybe the lack of back stories made the Masters feel like they needed to give more context? In a weird way I thought not having a judging panel would mean more dancing, less talking, but it didn't turn out that way. The Red Man of Alcatraz - not sure what's happening with ANTM! Sarah was a good host/fit for that.
