Axed: Everybody Dance Now

TEN has axed Everybody Dance Now from its Sunday night line-up following dire ratings.

James Warburton, Chief Executive Officer, said, “As part of the renewal of Network TEN’s creative content, we are trying new formats and creating more programming options. Unfortunately, we didn’t get the Everybody Dance Now format right. Kelly, Jason and Sarah are fantastic presenters. Their professionalism and commitment to Everybody Dance Now was remarkable, and the many talented dancers on the show were amazing. Although we worked with FremantleMedia to reset the program, clearly it has not struck a chord with viewers.”

TEN has again revamped its Sunday night line-up as follows:

6.00pm – The Project
6.30pm – The Simpsons rpt
7.00pm – Modern Family rpt
8.00pm – Graham Norton Express rpt
8.30pm – NCIS rpt
9.30pm – Moto GP – Live from Czech Republic, round 12.

This post updates.


  1. There’s one reality show ch10 could produce that would rate its bum off. A show about the inner workings of a failed network showing the day to day failings as bumbling staff can’t seem to do anything right!

  2. Total Disgrace.I am old enough to remember the Seinfeld,Everybody Loves Raymond,Friends,Will and Grace and Taken Out Era before the 7pm Project replaced all of them and think what 10 is doing to us is a joke.This is the same network that dumped it’s 4:30pm Kids Shows of all sorts it had for many years for Bold and the Beautiful way back in 1996 by the way which is totally unacceptable.

  3. Dear Channel Ten – three words for you. Good News Week. Admit you were wrong and bring it back. Give it a regular timeslot and duration, don’t mess with the format and pretend you care by starting it (and everything else) at the advertised time. Your viewers will start to forgive the atrocities of the past year if you ‘fess up to having lost the plot and give the audience back the sharp witty comedy you took away by sending GNW to late night purgatory then cancelling it.

  4. jezza the first original one

    Unfortunately ch10 are just a One Trick Pony…Masterchef. They do produce some other very good shows, but no one will bother to watch them.

    Advertisers with a single brain cell or more will abandon them in droves as they can not be trusted.

    Financial ruin and possible collapse or foreclosure will follow. The landscape is movimg rapidly, a couple of big mistakes and you are gone…

  5. The new schedule seems a a bit erratic. Maybe keep it simple and go with this:

    6pm The Project
    7pm Modern Family rpt
    7:30pm The Paul Henry, Steve Price, and Andrew Bolt Happy Hour!
    8:30pm NCIS rpt
    9:30pm Moto GP/Formula One

    Jokes, but an hour of The Project into MF would give the schedule more consistency for the week.

  6. As someone else said, everyone on this site when these shows were announced all said how crap they were and would fail. The Shire, Bingle, EDN, I Will Survive, Don’t Tell The Bride. And we were all right, yet Ten somehow thought they’d be a hit.
    When Breakfast was announced most seemed interested, but then they announced Paul Henry as host and majority said it was the wrong call and decided not to watch then and there. How can Ten just get it so wrong all the time.

    Rush was the best Aussie show on tv and they axed it. All their hit shows have now been screwed by the network that even they don’t rate anymore.
    NCIS, House, NCIS LA, Modern Family, The Good Wife, L&O SVU all terrible in ratings lately.

    And even if they do fastrack all those shows ryan mentioned, they’ll start at 8.43 anyway. If they want to win viewers back, fastrack shows, and show them on time, and leave them in the one slot. Ten used to be the most trusted network, now it’s the worst of the lot.
    I watch most shows that air on Ten than any other network, yet i don’t watch any of them on Ten.

  7. Gotta feel sorry for the poor contestants who pinned all thier hopes on this show they were let down by some idiot who had the bright idea to launch it up against the final night of a major sporting event that only happens once every four years as I have said before the audience need to connect with the contestants from the start

  8. The honeymoon is over for L.M. Surely the past 12 months has demonstrated he has no credibility or ability to run a television network. He should step down.

    Mr Warburton’s probation is also passed. Great potential, but no runs on the board in over 8 months.

    However neither will be leaving soon.
    A scapegoat will emerge in the next week or so.
    The blurb will read “xxxxxxxx has left to pursue other opportunities……..etc etc”

    Watch this space

  9. The saddest thing about this is that Foxtel cancelled their dance show because it would air at the same time as this. Now there’s no dance show for dancers until next year.

  10. Given its improvement last Sunday I thought it may have got another week to improve more Really feel for the crew and dancers. But I suppose the cost of production each week made it not viable. Its Not like the whole series was shot within one week. I actually don’t have that bigger problem with the tighter format(last Sunday) It was the host and the 2x US judges that lost me. But these problems should have been recognized prior to going to air!!!

  11. Ten has major Super Sundays now lol, just look @ that lineup, David didnt you say ncis was going to sundays 8,30 new eps? Hopefully they listened and now have it where it belongs! Tues 8.30
    Ten has alot of shows to use coming up and they cant come quick enough here are some
    Glee new eps start sep13th/ Ncis new eps sep 25th/Law and order svu sep 26th/Modern family-sep 26th/Homeland-sep30th/Simpsons-sep 30th- needs to go back to ten.
    Ten need to fasttrack all of these shows so they can atleast have a good end of yr but they also need to be smart about where they put these shows:)

  12. That is sad. People work hard on shows and it’s always a downer for the industry when something gets canned, especially something like this which had great elements – the dancers were terrific. But Ten don’t seem very creative at all, Mr Warburton – you just seem to rehash tired formats and make a lot of trash. Why? I know it’s cheap(er) than say doing a drama but in the end it’s worse for your brand when they all tank. Ten becomes an untrusted laughing stock.

  13. What a massive disappointment all around.
    For those people, like me, who wanted to see a show back on TV showcasing dance. But mostly for all the dancers involved working to have their turn.

    Channel 10 has been pretty disappointing for quite some time. While I’m hating on them right now, I’ll just say it, bring back Good News Week.

  14. Oh god! Now Ten might listen to us and bring back a new season of So You Think You Can Dance!! It was a bloody awesome dance show that was killed off simply by The change in days, from sun/mons to wed/thur!!
    I say bring back sytycd and ask gretel if she wants to host??

  15. Well, this is sad actually – all those people out of work and so many dancers’ dreams shot.
    I personally love watching dance of any type – how can you not enjoy beautiful bodies in motion, but EDN really seemed to miss the point.
    (I’m also going to miss Secret Squirrel’s “corpse” & “turd” metaphors over the past week about this show!)
    Have you got a parting shot for EDN left in you, Secret? 😉

  16. Unfortunately not funny !

    Another $20m lost down the drain but at least they still have The Shire, Lara Bingle 2, The Bolt Report, Breakfast and those great rating morning format – and Don’t Tell the Bride of course.

    Utter disgrace Ten. The Board should wake up to themselves and get a real management team like they used to have.
