Jennifer Lopez’s “World of Dance,” which was the #1 regular timeslot premiere of 2017 on the broadcast networks in the 18-49 demo as well as the most-watched summer alternative series debut on cable or broadcast in nine years, has been renewed for a second season!
“I am so proud to not only star, but produce a show that is so close to my heart,'” said Jennifer Lopez in a statement. “I am so happy that ‘World of Dance’ has resonated with audiences and we are able to put dancers on the pedestal they deserve. I cannot wait to continue this journey and my partnership with NBC.”
“World of Dance” is averaging a 2.8 rating in adults 18-49 and 11.0 million viewers overall in “live plus seven day” results from Nielsen Media Research, making it the #1 10 p.m. series on any broadcast network for the full 2016-17 season to date in 18-49. It’s also easily the #1 first-year series of the summer in 18-49 and total viewers, as well as the summer’s #2 entertainment series in both measures, behind only NBC’s “America’s Got Talent.” In 18-49, it’s the highest-rated first-year summer series through its first five weeks (“most current”) in four years, since CBS’ “Under the Dome” in 2013. In total viewers, it’s the most-watched first-year summer alternative series at this point in nine years, since ABC’s “Wipeout” in 2008.
