Oddly enough there's been nothing said about a radio tour.
That's really weird. Also they don't have an adds date for What About Us either. I'm really surprised they've landed a slot on Jay Leno though, but I don't see the point of performing the song on the show if they haven't given radio stations an adds date yet.

New promo for the show.

And What About Us is back in the iTunes Pop Chart at #1459.
Uh-oh. Looks like it's flopping badly.

I don't think it's been sent to radio yet and the promotion hasn't even started.

The girls are being interviewed on Chelsea Lately on the 10th January.
I thought it was on the 9th? Oh well, doesn't matter. I expect it to be one of those interviews in which Chelsea clearly has no idea who she is interviewing, and just makes jokes about these unknowns from UK. I'm expecting material about (either the Sats or Chelsea sleeping with) The Wanted and 1D, drinking in the US and comments about The Sats' bodies.

Hopefully the girls are prepared for Chelsea's style. (Maybe the show has been recorded already?)

I wouldn't be surprised if they got a slot on The Voice as it's on the NBC network just like their E! show I think.

I just looked it up and E! is part of an NBC branch called NBCUniversal Cable, so it is owned by them. My personal favourite TV station, CNBC is owned by NBC's News division.

What's worrying is that there's no news about a radio impact date yet.

I've just read on another forum that What About US has been getting airplay by KIISS.

It's not gonna do anything until the show and Leno.

If it doesn't take off with the show,etc then uh-oh. But for now no biggie.

I wonder if they can get promo on "the voice"?

#1453. Up to #375 on the Pop Charts. Keep in mind, though, that it hasn't been sent to radio or had any promotion yet. Promotion starts tomorrow night on Chelsea Lately.

Apparently they're also doing The Today Show.

#1221 on regular iTunes.

Video out on Friday at 8am on Vevo.

More promo confirmed such as The Today Show on the 16th (interview and performance) and an interview on the 25th on the Jeff Probst Show. Chelsea Lately tonight, though!

I actually like the song now, I hope it does well in America, I don't want them to flop.

But tbf, The Wanted released All Time Low in America and that flopped and then released Glad You Came and it did amazing so it won't be the end of the world if it doesn't peak in the Top 100.

They've just now been chosen as the first Vevo Lift artist of 2013. This means they'll have ads on Vevo before videos start and have banners in the background of videos etc.

I dont hate the Saturdays by any means but I dont see how they can try and crack the USA after their average success in their home country, lets be fair they just arent that good and lack some X Factor.

They have the likeability factor and sure they can all sing but I cant see them being HUGE, it all seems desperate moves to crack the usa now, just my opinion of course

I think it's a combination of a few things. Their image is inconsistant, their live vocals are hit and miss (Vanessa losing her voice was a big loss), their musical style is all over the place and the promotion is very questionable at times. Radio seem to have abandoned them in the UK so I think it's a wise move to go to the UK since their image is very American and they can have a fresh start.

Agree on all points there. Re musical style they should have stayed with the 1st album as it was "the Saturdays" style which worked.

The last few years its seemed like they followed whatever trend was happeneding that month, it has always been desperate.

The girls dont seem strong enough to take the reigns on anything and their poor management have taken them down the wrongs paths
