Oxygen's 'Dance Your Ass Off' sets record

Oxygen’s "dance/weight-loss competition" show “Dance Your Ass Off” was the most-watched series premiere in network history.

The Monday night telecast drew 1.3 million viewers, 614,000 of which were adults 18-49, making the show the highest-rated series debut for the network among viewers, the demo and women 18-49. The show is pretty much what you think: overweight contestants dancing to shed pounds, a sort of "Dancing With the Carbs." 

Here's a first episode video recap for those who missed it, fast forward to after the halfway mark to get past the contestant intros and into the dancing.
