10 million people watch all of Live to Dance; did they fall asleep?

Paula Abdul’s Live to Dance did surprisingly well last night: just over 10 million people watched the show, and stayed with it through both hours, unlike Skating with the Stars’ hemorrhaging of its viewers. That’s an impressive number, and while The Biggest Loser had more viewers ages 18 to 49, it wasn’t by much.

So yes, although the show sucked horrifically, clearly 10 million people disagree and/or fell asleep during the middle of the show.

And I’d really like to know what kept people around. NBC’s The Sing Off wasn’t well-produced, but worked because it had a lot of talent. Live to Dance didn’t have much of anything at all, except translucent stars with different colored lights behind them.
