International Broadcasters

Australia

Australia's Nine Network begun airing Dance Your Ass Off on July 21, 2009. The first episode attained a low 797,000 viewers (compared with numbers of 1.4-1.6 million viewers on the other two major commercial networks) and coming third out of fifth in overall ratings for the night by a substantial margin. Dance Your Ass Off got some of the lowest numbers the network has seen before in prime-time. The Nine Network removed the show from their schedule and replaced it with episodes of 20 to 1.

There was much criticism to the Nine Network airing Dance Your Ass Off, considering that the Oxygen Network is a low-viewed niche cable network in the United States that only targets young women exclusively with their programming, whereas Nine is a major free-to-air broadcaster for the mass-market. Within three weeks the programme was moved to Nine's multicast digital channel Go! from August 15, 2009, ending October 17 with the finale episode.

The show was panned in its reviews as well in Australia prior to its premiere, with websites such as TV Tonight giving it a measly 0.5/5 stars.
