Though there are currently no plans for the show to return to NBC, the Universal Television Alternative Studio — a division of Universal Studio Group — still owns its format, which has been adapted all over the world in countries like Thailand, the Philippines and Poland.
NBC has firmed up its schedule for the rest of the broadcast season, setting late winter and spring premiere dates. The slate includes two new series, drama The Enemy Within and The Village, and two returning sophomores that debuted last midseason, comedy A.P. Bio and comedic drama Good Girls. Additionally, NBC has set premiere dates for reality series The Voice and World Of Dance.
World of Dance has been renewed for Season 2 at NBC, the network announced Thursday. The series gives dancers the platform to showcase their talents and compete for a $1 million grand prize. It features a judging team composed of Jennifer Lopez, who also serves as an executive producer, Derek Hough, NE-YO and host Jenna Dewan Tatum.
The launch of NBC’s new competition series World of Dance went over big in the Tuesday overnight ratings. The new series, which features host and executive producer Jennifer Lopez, opened to a 2.4 rating in adults 18-49 and 9.8 million viewers, airing at 10 p.m. That puts it on par with the Tuesday airings of The Voice. World of Dance was also the most watched summer alternative series debut on broadcast in seven years, since the launch of ABC’s Wipeout in 2008.
