No, it didn't, the ratings for Episode 4 won't be out until next week and E! UK has probably never reached 1m viewers. The UK ratings so far are:

Episode 1 - 72k
Episode 2 - 62k
Episode 3 - 107k

They're high ratings for E! UK - Episodes 1 and 3 were the most watched shows on the channel for the whole week, Episode 2 was the second most watched after red carpet coverage of the BAFTA Awards got 64k. 107k is particularly impressive as nothing except the Kardashians has ever broken the 100k mark. Now that TOWIE is back, the ratings will probably drop, though.
Sorry, I read the decimal point wrong when I saw the ratings.

The ratings have been pretty awful in the US, though. E! had to move it to Monday.

Is there a chance the show will be renewed but only in the UK?

Their Wendy Williams performance is available on the show website.

Their promo next week includes Daybreak and Alan Carr (with Sean Paul). Tomorrow they have a radio show in the US (the song is officially released to radio there tomorrow) and they're back in the UK on Wednesday.

That's terrible. 5 or so days in the US and one appearance on Wendy Williams and a bit of Radio. WTF are their management thinking? They should be spending months in the US not days.

POP brat Justin Bieber is lining up a new opening act for his concerts – British girl band The Saturdays.

He sent his manager Scooter Braun to watch them perform a secret acoustic set for VIPs at the headquarters of their US record label Mercury in New York.

With Braun at the private mini-gig was top music producer Dallas *Austin, 42, who has worked with 19-year-old Bieber, the late Michael Jackson and Madonna, 54.

A brief scene from the unplugged set is due to be aired soon on the reality show Chasing The Saturdays, which is tracking the girls’ bid to make it big in America.

An insider who was among around 40 guests and executives, including Mercury Records president David Massey, said yesterday: “Scooter and Dallas were on a spying mission.

“They wanted to check out the girls with a view to Dallas producing their music and Scooter steering them on their path to fame in America.

“They were so impressed that *Scooter immediately called Justin to tell him he’d found the ‘perfect’ act to open for him at venues in the US when he returns from the European leg of his Believe tour.”

The Saturdays have racked up ten Top Ten hits in the UK and other *European countries. But the girls – Una Healy, 31, Mollie King, 25, * Frankie Sandford, 24, mum-to-be *Rochelle *Humes, 23, and Vanessa White, 23 – have not set the States alight so far.

Their debut US single What About Us, featuring Sean Paul, appears to have peaked at No.27 in the dance chart despite strong ratings for their E! reality show.

But now they have opened talks with Braun, 31, over when their shooting schedule will allow them to open for Bieber when his tour returns to America on June 22.

Two days later he hits LA’s Staples Centre and The Saturdays could join him on stage at the *famous venue.

A source close to the band said: “We are very near to sealing a deal that should ensure The Saturdays really crack America where it counts – *performing live in huge stadiums.

“There is even talk of Justin and The Saturdays collaborating on at least one number.

“If that happens, they are *guaranteed a No.1 hit in the US.”

The source added: “Justin might have upset a few of his British fans recently by turning up late for one gig, walking off stage midway through another and attacking a *photographer.

“But if he takes The Saturdays on board, he’s going to make a lot of fans over there very happy indeed.”

Music industry insiders also believe top producer Austin will sign on to “hone” their sound for the US *market.
Interesting.

Justin's manager was on Chasing The Saturdays watching the girls perform so it might be true.

If that's true it'd be amazing for them!

Now all they need is a radio tour

I can't stand Bieber but if it helps them get a hit in the States then I don't mind, and I saw that episode just a few days ago, Braun was in that room watching them so for once a story from the Star may be partly true at least lol.

#76 on Pop Radio today, climbing over 40 places since the last update.

The Justin Bieber rumours may be true as The Sats have gigs booked in the summer but are free from June - August (the dates of Justin's tour leg).

After his last sting over here they do well to stay away from him tbh. Their are better artists they could open for.

would be funny though.

Even after his strange behaviour, he is still one of the biggest selling artists in the world. The exposure will do them the world of good.

Their are so many big selling artists out their why not go for one of them?

I guess it depends if their market is the same as JB's then yes he'd do the work for good for them if he is not then they'd need someone better.

I just think they can do better then Beiber, not that i hate the guy, im not one of those just think the Sats could do better that is all.

Lbr, if this is to get them popular in the US, they are lucky to have Bieber. From an American standpoint, The Saturdays are nobodies. Bieber is huge. Karmin is bigger than them here, touring with them wouldn't be the most awful thing for their career, but touring with Bieber would definitely help them. Their single got absolutely nowhere, they need someone like Bieber to help them and he's the best they can do at this point.

No, his tour doesn't reach America until late June. They've got a few of their own gigs in the UK until then, they're also off to Australia and Germany next month. They'll probably join him in July.

Anyone else gutted America is over for them already?

To think that they were #102 on iTunes in January before they decided to come back to the UK. I don't think the song even got sent to radio in the end.

I'm a big Sats fan but lets be realistic. When the likes of Sugababes and Girls Aloud never cracked America, the girls never really stood a chance
