Dancin' The Morning Away on Daybreak

Alright I don't think anyone could have made this one up BUT I just saw a promo on KATV promoting beginning next week on Daybreak a dancing contest will begin. Apparently several different couples will be dancing the morning away every morning next week. Then everyday viewers will be able to go online and vote for their favorite. THEN on Friday a championship dance off will be held between the daily winners.

A dance contest at five o'clock in the morning, on LIVE TV.........What else are they gonna subject the viewers they have left too before they totally drive them all away? Oh well, we'll see how it goes. Just for the heck of it I'll record it on Monday and see what it is all about.

UPDATE: Ok, KATV is playing the heck out of the Dancin' on Daybreak promo during tonight's Everybody Loves Raymond, and it seems 5 couples will start out dancing on Monday and each day one couple will be eliminated leaving one couple standing on Friday.

The dancing show will work... people said the SAME thing when the national show aired... but it was the biggest hit of the summer.

This will be a good show to watch.

YES. I AM SICK OF THE HATING, TOO. I THINK IT'S SMART TO CAPITOLIZE ON THE NUMBER ONE SHOW ON TV.

Perhaps the above three posts were contributed by the same KATV employee? Maybe they had input on that show? By the time that train wreck show "gels," if it ever will, there won't be anyone left watching. I think it won't be long before KATV will be a solid third in that time slot.

That was just a National contest and it might not work for this station, because people don't have to time to rise up 5:00 AM to see people that ain't worth a dam to make a fool of themselves in state wide TV,TABLOID TV is a better title for it.

SO KATV has the mentality of "it worked for them, it will work for us." Example: The all female gma daybreak, copied off of The View. And now a dancin' contest. Come up with something original. I Wonder if this was Nicole Capri's idea?

Folks, Folks...stop calling it GMA Daybreak! They have already changed the name back to just 'Daybreak'. Too bad they haven't returned to the old format. Apparently, 7's excuse for the low ratings were that folks didn't see 'Daybreak' on the ratings diary, so we the viewers filled out the score cards wrong? Say it ain't so!

Hey here's an idea: Get folks to send in pics wearing their Channel 7 clothing. I'm sure everybody would love to see themselves on TV.

If they are copying shows, they should copy Survivor. Put the girls on an island and have them fend for themselves. Each week, viewers from Arkansas can cast of the girls into the ocean leaving the rest to host the show/survive. The final one standing wins the right to return to civilzation and can anchor Saturday Daybreak.

To the poster who said, "stop the hating," you are too sensitive.
And, to the one who said it was Nicole Capri's idea, you are giving her too much credit.
And, has anyone else heard of these local "stars"?
It is sad they can't come up with some really local personalities.

Smart to capitolize (sic) on the number one show? I'm confused. Surely they're not talking about that prime time dance contest? Hating? Are we in the 5th grade? No one here "hates." That poor KATV employee must have ulcers by now. The majority of us just want a decent morning show.

"Dancing with the Stars" worked because of the "STARS"!!! People tuned in to see stars try to dance. People will not tune in to see folks they don't know dancing.

I think the poster who used "train wreck" in the above posts is Mike Francis from KARK. He uses that phrase a lot, and, he wishes his show was as good at KATV.

KATV already has a decent show... KTHV and KARK are also decent. If the above posters can't find something genuinely nice to say about KATV, they are either jealous or closed-minded.

The national show had stars? They were all "B List" people so it's not about star power. You didn't see J-Lo up there dancing.

J-Lo's an "A List" star? Maybe to Renee Shapiro and her hack movie reviews. EWWWWW..cute boy I love you and your crappy movie rocked. Will you marry me?

BTW I'd say Evander, Rachel Hunter and John O'Hurley are pretty big names. And Kelly Monaco obviously had a huge Soap fan following.

I think that KATV should leave the Daybreak show to the talents they have -- Sorry, but the new format and Nicole need to go. What is her purpose on the show? I question the approval of her being on the air -- please don't cause the viewing public to have to endure her inability to read the prompter any longer, or her attempts at stand up comedy. Come on Channel 7 you can do much better!!!

I agree KATV has better taste than what the Daybreak line up currently offers - use your proven talents and the professionalism shown by Melinda, Beth and Jason. Do your viewers a favor and set the others free!!!! Maybe the others can find a home on another station, or not !! Remember this is early morning show... One would question who is producing the show and what were they thinking ???

You people will still being saying the same thing when KATV's morning show hits #1. Blah, blah, blah.

I love the dancing... it's FUN

I don't agree that we will be saying the same thing when KATV hits #1, because that day will never come.

Never? Now that's closed-minded.

Who can tell me the last time KARK ever had the top morning show? I mean ever? And when did they have the top weekend news? I mean ever?

Daybreak need to drop at least one hour and just have it go from 6:00 am to 7:00 pm so it won't be so bad on this Tabloid TV Station!
(I got a gut feeling that KATV will respond to this and i can see it comming)!

KATV 7 has too many shows and not enough viewership and too much of a good thing can always back fire!

The above poster should be a station GM.... too many good shows is definitely a bad thing !

Nicole and Jason work well together... and the local dancers have been fun to watch. Whether you love or hate dancing, this show has created lots of interest.

I hear that Nicole can work well with just about anyone...

KATV you need to stop while you are ahead and just ask what the viewers like to see and that will make it worth seeing!

To the guy that posted:

"Daybreak need to drop at least one hour and just have it go from 6:00 am to 7:00 pm so it won't be so bad on this Tabloid TV Station!"

I didn't know we wanted to see this crappy show for 13 HOURS!!!! 6am - 7AM! Good job dude! Maybe you should work in print media!
