TV audiences aren’t tired yet of the annoying moms on Lifetime’s Dance Moms as the season three premiere scored a new viewership record for the series. Lifetime says the season three premiere of Dance Moms with Abby Lee Miller had 2.8 million total viewers, up an impressive 33% over season two’s premiere in June 2012.
Season 2 of Dance Moms set the viewership bar high, earning the top spot on the list of unscripted cable series in its time period. It’s also the network’s youngest skewing series, with season two viewers averaging 32 years old (season one’s viewers average 37).
The Details:
Dance Moms follows children’s early steps on the road to stardom and their doting mothers who are there for every rehearsal, performance and bow…all under Miller’s discerning eyes. Presenting a powerful cast of characters that has inspired water-cooler talk across the country, the show immerses itself in the highs and lows surrounding dance competition season, delivering a captivating and dramatic look at the cast’s intense pursuit of National Dance titles. Centered on the devoted Miller, who runs her school and instructs her young, talented students while also dealing with impassioned mothers who go to great lengths to help their children’s dreams come true, Dance Moms poses the tough questions many people have been asking since the show’s launch about what really goes on behind-the-scenes in the fast-growing and controversial sport of competitive dance.
