Note: These ratings are collected by the Nielsen company and are the final national numbers. These are different from the fast affiliate numbers which are just estimates of the actual ratings and are reported on by most other outlets. The final nationals are typically released within 24 hours of the programming or, in the case of weekends and holidays, a couple days later.

Please re-new the show! They can’t end a season like they did with a cliff hanger haha. This show is the first thing I put on my queue for Hulu and I really like it.


Cbindernagel July 6, 2012 at 8:20 pm

Jerry July 6, 2012 at 12:44 pm

Brilliant should run for years so much potential for expansion/franchise. Give it time!


Maura July 6, 2012 at 2:47 am

Love it. Please have another. Whether its Ballet West or another. Love this new angle because both my kids dance!!


Maui July 5, 2012 at 9:12 pm

This is one of the best reality shows ever put together… and I hope it comes back for another season. It will pick up in ratings if more and more people hear about it. Most people in their life have never known a ballerina. They’re somewhat mysterious because there are so few that make it to the top. This gave me an insight into their world that I would have never had… please renew this show!! I’ll get many more people to watch it!


Pam July 5, 2012 at 6:45 pm

Please, please renew this. Breaking Pointe is the only reality show I have ever watched.
I do not like reality shows at all. But this one, it is so real life. And I grew up in SLC ,
lived there for 26 years. Please keep it going. And more dancing.

I love the Breaking Pointe! As a ballet person I tuned in for the insiders look at BalletWest. As a regular person, I have been hooked by the drama of the relationships, the prep for performance issues, the heightened drama and conflict as they get closer to performance. Where will Katie end up? Will Rex show some self-respect and break up with Allison? Will she and Beckanne end up having a knock down drag out, as Beck seems to be getting tired of Allison’s drama? Will Adam drop his affable manner and totally lose it with the dancers? I can’t wait to see what’s next, and I regularly share on my facebook page and tell everyone to watch.

Thanks for having this on the air, and I’m hoping for a second season.

Like it! Needs more dancing. Would like to see parts of their dance performance in costumes. I love watching ballet and would really enjoy the show with more dancing parts.


rose June 7, 2012 at 5:30 pm

I loved it. I am dancer modern/ballet and have been so many years, I love the idea of having a reality show about a dance company. There is so much real drama and insane jealous competive bitches to fight through to even survive. Not to mention the pain stacking hours of physical work and the strive for perfection. I think its a brilliant idea for a reality show rather than some dumb imitation show of an even dumber concept vampire and werewolves in Love with idiot bimbo o my…..

Meh – way too much talk and way too little ballet. And the smarmy artistic director? Even a little of him is too much. A disappointment.
