Amended: TEN will also replay Puberty Blues this Friday night at 9pm.

“It is not unusual for television networks to change programs. For some time now, we’ve talked about creating more programming options for TEN and moving away from the ‘one bet, one punch’ mentality of old,” Network TEN Chief Programming Officer, David Mott, said.

“These changes highlight that strategy. We are re-setting Everybody Dance Now. But it clearly remains part of the TEN schedule, along with other exciting new local programs such as Puberty Blues, I Will Survive, Don’t Tell The Bride, Class Of, Reef Doctors and Come Date With Me.

“We believe in the Everybody Dance Now format. We have listened to the feedback from viewers and we are working with production company FremantleMedia to reset the show and make it more engaging for viewers.”

Changes to Everybody Dance Now format will see the show shortened to one hour playing once a week only. It will now have three dance duels. The studio audience will choose one winner on the night to take home $10,000. The remaining two teams will enter a Wild Card vote by the viewing audience.

  1. Ten needs to fix itself up.You had Taken Out and Project as the first steps in ditching the done to death sitcoms at 7pm.They need to find something long term at that hour and not fall back into old habits(Modern Family won’t last forever and then what they have to start again from scratch).Their after school schedule needs a fix too 4:30pm when I was a preteen in the eighties was Wonder World or Double Dare Time None of this Bold and the Beautiful nonsense Move that back to 1pm and think of the younger generation and those with school aged kids too.
