"Dance Your Ass Off" Sets Oxygen Record As Network's Best Series Premiere Ever

"Dance Your Ass Off," Oxygen's new dance/weight loss competition show, set a network record Monday night when it debuted to an average of 1.3 million total viewers. That's the largest audience ever for a series premiere on Oxygen and a 249% increase over the network's previous four Mondays' average.

"Dance Your Ass Off" is hosted by "Hairspray" star Marissa Jaret Winokur and features "talented full-figured contestants who struggle with their weight and through dancing unleash their inner thin." The contestant who scores the lowest combined dance and weight loss score is eliminated each week.

The show performed equally strong in Oxygen's key demos, averaging 614,000 Adults 18-49, 432,000 Women 18-49, and 173,000 Women 18-34 viewers.
