Jodie Sweetin to Host fuse's Pants-Off Dance-Off

Former Full House Star Hosts "Best-Of" Episodes on fuse
Premiering Tuesday July 18 at 10pm ET

New York, NY (July 7, 2006) – According to TV Guide, fuse's Pants-Off Dance-Off is the "dumbest show on television." So dumb in fact that New York Magazine has dubbed it "brilliant and lowbrow." The runaway hit show, featuring host and former Full House actress Jodie Sweetin, premieres July 18 at 10pm ET.

fuse's Pants-Off Dance-Off is the first interactive dance/game show on TV. Initially premiering on April 18 as part of fuse's FUESDAY TUESDAY late night programming block, Pants-Off Dance-Off features dancers of all shapes and sizes strutting their stuff and shedding their clothes to their favorite music videos. Night after night, contestants shake, jiggle and waddle down to their birthday suits, simply for the thrill of it and the chance to win cold hard cash prizes.

The show, which combines humor, exhibitionism and rump-shaking music, is turning viewers around the country into voyeurs. Every Tuesday through Friday at 10pm (ET), five contestants shed their inhibitions, their clothes and sometimes, a little dignity in front of a nation of gawkers. The show features SMS texting applications allowing viewers to vote online at or via text for their favorite dancer. The winner of each night's competition moves onto Saturday night's ultimate, undisputed, PANTS-OFF competition.

After the show, fans can log onto to see even more of their favorite contestants, while watching previous winners/losers. The site also encourages viewers to cast their vote for the all-time-champ/all-time-chump. tracks the winners from each broadcast and allows fans to chat and post on the message board. And, for the bold and beautiful, an audition form is available for would-be contestants.
