As it was previously announced, “World of Dance” was about to premiere on May 8 (Monday) and from May 30 it would move to Tuesdays. As we see today on The Wrap, the premiere of the show was pushed to May 30.
A top network executive told TheWrap that the move is all about creating a better and more consistent launch platform for a series they have high hopes about. Plus, this buys the peacock more time to market its hopeful hit.
The move also allows “World of Dance” to stay on Tuesday nights throughout its run and not switch over from Monday after three weeks, which was NBC’s original plan. Summer’s No. 1 network also likes the idea of launching “World of Dance” out of the season premiere of the mighty “America’s Got Talent.”
