ABC cancels 'Dance Machine' reality series with two episodes left


By Christopher Rocchio, 07/17/2008 

ABC has decided to cancel Dance Machine with only two unaired episodes of the reality competition series remaining, a network spokesperson for the show confirmed to Reality TV World on Thursday.

ABC currently has no plans to broadcast the final two episodes of the self-contained reality series either on air or online, the spokesperson told Reality TV World.

Replacing Dance Machine in the Fridays at 8PM ET/PT time slot on both July 18 and 25 will be repeat episodes of America's Funniest Home Videos.

Each one-hour Dance Machine episode featured six "real people from all walks of life" as they faced off against each other in a series of one-on-one dance offs set to popular songs -- with contestants eliminated based on votes cast by studio audience members. 

At the end of each episode, two finalists challenged each other one last time for the chance to take home Dance Machine's $100,000 cash prize.

Dance Machine premiered June 27 and averaged only 3.370 million total viewers and a 1.2 rating over its first two broadcasts.

Its most recent installment on July 11 drew a 0.7 rating in the Adults 18-49 demographic -- making it the least-watched program on the night across the five major broadcast networks.
