So You Think You Can Dance 3, August 15: Foxy Lady, by Asher Streets: Sabra Johnson enters the finale poised to be the first female winner. How will she fare after being handed a coveted Wade Robson routine? The judges are unanimous in their dislike of his piece. So much so, they can’t even comment on the performances. Asher will take a crack at it, though.
So You Think You Can Dance 3, August 13: Finally! (Stupid Football), by Asher Streets: You’ve waited far too long for the results, yielding to the inevitable annual societal lobotomy that is football. But curiosity is finally satisfied. Lauren is long overdue to leave, but for the guys it’s more difficult to pick. Join Asher to see how it all (on last Thursday) unfolded.
So You Think You Can Dance 3, August 8: Neil Before Him, by Asher Streets: Neil Haskell has floundered in the rankings since basically week one, but this week he’s out with something to prove. And prove it, he does. Neil earns hearty praise this week from everyone, and will likely take a place in the finals. Way to go, Neil!
So You Think You Can Dance 3, August 1: Misha’s A Poser, by Asher Streets: There are so few remaining, yet Lauren Gottlieb is still mysteriously here. How will she fare this week when she needs to learn two new dances? To give you a preview, she falls in one routine, and is called out in the other for doing a lot more posing than dancing.
So You Think You Can Dance 3, July 26: Two for the Road, by Jenn Brasler: Once again, two dancers have to leave the competition, but this time it’s all in America’s hands. Will Neil be safe now that he’s getting to shine away from Lauren? Or does the audience think he’s not good enough to move into the top eight?
So You Think You Can Dance 3, July 25: Can The Academy Retract An Emmy Nod?, by Asher Streets: How the world has changed. Wade Robson used to give us captivating, entertaining, and quirky dances. Now, he pulls a political stunt under the guise of a solo that every dancer must perform. Identically. To the same song. Over and over and over. Until Asher wants to drive a nail through his own skull to stop the muzak. Put away that peace sign, Wade, Asher’s ready to go toe to toe.
So You Think You Can Dance 3, July 19: Mary’s Pissed, by Asher Streets: Two dancers leave tonight, giving us our top 10. The elimination of one dancer was not unanimous, and silences the usually jabbery Mary Murphy. Who doesn’t make the tour? Or maybe I should say: who are the alternates for the tour?
So You Think You Can Dance 3, July 12: Caution – Too Much Hairspray May Induce Nausea, by Asher Streets: Last night, the judges seemed to love everyone except Jaimie & Hok. When it comes time for elimination, the judges don’t want to go and deliberate. Could it be that too many favorites land in the bottom? Is tonight’s show anything but shameless plugging for Adam Shankman’s movie? Oh, and if you read yesterday’s recap, did anyone else get the reference of Neil looking like Mr. Heat Miser from The Year Without Santa Claus?
So You Think You Can Dance 3, July 11: That Elusive X-Factor, by Asher Streets: Danny has been gaining ground each week. He comes into this week ranked at number two, yet Asher feels disconcerted about it. There’s something he’s missing, and tonight, the judges notice it too. Yes, he does a great routine, but what is it about him that just doesn’t work? The judges seem to like almost everybody tonight, but there’s a lot that Asher finds fault with. Oh yeah, and Cedric is still around.
So You Think You Can Dance 3, June 28: Five Million Americans Get It Wrong, by Asher Streets: Tonight’s results may be the most controversial yet. Everyone but Debbie Allen seemed to want Cedric out of the competition. Will they get their wish? What about Jessi… is she well enough to dance another day? You’ll be surprised to find out the mix of people who need to dance for their lives. This one won’t be easy.
So You Think You Can Dance 3, June 27: Guest Starring… Bette Midler?, by Asher Streets: Tonight, tragedy strikes. Yes, Mary Murphy let’s out a few rabid screams, but that’s just weekly torture. I’m talking about tragedy. One dancer is taken away by ambulance for serious medical reasons. I’ll give you a hint, it’s a girl. Will she recover in time to dance? Her replacement reminds guest judge Debbie Allen of Bette Midler. Also, for one dancer, Debbie offers a full scholarship to her dance academy. So who gets the dose of good luck and who gets the bad?
So You Think You Can Dance 3, June 21: Cedric Is Doomed, by Asher Streets: Last night, everyone but Cedric Gardner seemed to be a notch or two better than the previous week. I believe there’s no way he can win the competition. Will he go home tonight as planned? Will Faina join him?
So You Think You Can Dance 3, June 20: Avian Mating Dances, by Asher Streets: We’ve lost two dancers and are down to 18. Almost everyone steps up their game tonight. Two couples do interpretations of animalistic dances that work extremely well. Pasha Kovalev and Anya Garnis may not be dancing together in this competition, but they are rising to the top with the partners that were selected for them.
So You Think You Can Dance 3, June 14: Wanted – A New Wardrobe Manager for Benji, by Asher Streets: We have a diverse and talented top 20 that gave energetic performances, if not always convincing ones. The pool of choreographers is rich this year, and Asher’s favorites, Mia Michaels and Wade Robson, did not disappoint. Who will get the honor of choreographing the first group number? More importantly, two people need to go. A pair of dancers gets cut together, but for different reasons. Who gets the dishonor of being the first boot?
So You Think You Can Dance 3, June 13: Lacey Steps Out of the Shadow, by Asher Streets: The first performance show is finally here! Can Cedric and Danny mitigate negative first impressions? Will Pasha and Anya live up to expectations? Will our unknowns prove themselves or fade quickly into obscurity? How will the siblings fare? Let’s jump in as our top 20 show us what they can do.
So You Think You Can Dance 3, June 7: Sibling Triumph, by Asher Streets: The audition phase has come to a close, as tonight we learn who the top 20 dancers will be. A few stand-outs have already been cut, and some are AWOL. There are three siblings of season two contestants among the 50 awaiting their fates. How will it shake out for Faina, Lacey, and Danny?
So You Think You Can Dance 3, June 6, Oy, Olivia!, by Asher Streets: It’s time for the Las Vegas rounds… time for the producers to manufacture some drama before we learn who our top 20 dancers will be. Dancers drop like flies, but somehow the weepy Olivia Usey manages to hang on throughout the episode. She’s a good dancer, but her whiny personality grates on a guy. What fate awaits her and the other 199 hopefuls?
So You Think You Can Dance 3, May 30: Kraptastic and Prosthetiliscious, by Asher Streets: Los Angeles and Chicago are epicenters of dance talent and of course some crazies. Asher’s ready to make his first top 10 prediction with one winsome dancer. Could it be one of our two dancers to audition with prosthetic limbs? Also, Nigel straight-up calls someone “fat.” Surely he meant “phat,” right?
So You Think You Can Dance 3: A Preview, by Asher Streets: A new season of the best summer show on TV, So You Think You Can Dance, is starting Thursday night! Asher brings us a preview of what we can expect. Will anyone be able to top last year’s amazing crop of dancers, including fan favorites Benji and Donyelle?
So You Think You Can Dance 2, the Finale: The Victory Dance, by Sting7: So you think you know who will win So You Think You Can Dance 2? Don’t be so sure. On a night with performances from Ciara and Fergie, your favorite dances of the season, and Nigel boasting, it could any of the final four. Sting7 has his money on Travis Wall. An online poll predicts Benji Schwimmer. Who’s right?
So You Think You Can Dance 2, August 9: Everybody Dance Now, by Sting7: No rest for the weary dancers, even on this, the last performance night of the season! The four remaining dancers must all dance alone, with each other in pairs, and in a group number! Can their bruised bodies take anymore? Who is told they are not worthy of the finale? Which dancer manages to stand out among the pack? The answers to all are here!
So You Think You Can Dance 2, August 3: One Step Closer , by Sting7: Wednesday night, the judges were brutal in their critiques. They raised the bar, and while some matched it, others got some rough treatment they’d never received before! But now, the results are in. Will we get the Benji/Travis showdown we all want? Stay tuned.
So You Think You Can Dance 2, August 2: …and Down The Stretch They Go!, by Sting7: There are only six dancers remaining, and it is a horserace! Everyone has their favorites, but the decision on who advances to the finals all comes down to what happens tonight! Close as it is, Ivan and Natalie have to be considered the dark horses. Can they pull an upset?
So You Think You Can Dance 2, July 27: The Shocker Cometh , by Sting7: Last night, Stinger smelled a shocking dismissal in the air. And, he was right! It always happens at this stage of the competition. Donyelle and Travis, paired for the first time, did not have a great debut. Could these frontrunners leave us tonight? Tonight’s result is sending shockwaves!
So You Think You Can Dance 2, July 26: Beware Final Four Week , by Sting7: Fans of reality television probably felt something in the air today. This is final four week on So You Think You Can Dance, and this show is due for a shocking elimination. Sadly, two of the best could be on the bubble and dancing for their lives. No way I’m talking about my Allison and Ivan, am I?
So You Think You Can Dance 2, July 20: America Decided, by Sting7: The rules have changed, America is in control, and the top ten dancers were worked to death last night. While some showed they truly are frontrunners to win it all, others were surprisingly exposed. Sting7 predicted we would be saying goodbye to Martha and Ryan. Is he right?
So You Think You Can Dance 2, July 19: Land of 20 Dances , by Sting7: It’s time for the top ten to do triple duty! On this, the first night of individual consideration, the prospect of two routines and a solo is more than some can handle. So far, Benji and Donyelle established themselves as the team to beat, but what happens when they are parted?
Hoof In Mouth Disease: So You Think You Can Dance 2’s Ben Susak , by Sting7: So, Ben Susak thought he could dance. Thing is, he could dance! That wasn’t the problem. The problem with Ben was his mouth – like inductee Blake McGrath before him. A mouth that riled the judges, yet again. But while Blake committed the sin of arrogance, Ben’s is an even worse sin: Stupidity.
So You Think You Can Dance 2, July 13: Hard News, by Sting7: Tonight, two go home! Next week, the rules change! Martha and Travis were called the team to beat in week one. Since then, other teams have been beating them. But, there’s no way this talented duo could be in the bottom three, is there? Plus a visit from a music reality show veteran. Not the ones you’re thinking! You want to know who… don’t cha?
So You Think You Can Dance 2, July 12: Twinkle-Toeing Toward the Ten, by Sting7: There is just one last elimination before the Top Ten. All twelve remaining dancers are giving their all to make it to the next level, but two of them must go. Last week, Allison and Ivan, and the judges, were shocked that America put them in the bottom three. Can they regain the adoration of the fans?
So You Think You Can Dance 2, July 6: Naming Names, by Sting7: It’s getting to be crunch time for the remaining dancers of So You Think You Can Dance! Picking a male and female to go home is even more difficult for the judges, but someone has to go! Heidi has successfully danced out of cousin Benji’s shadow, but is she destined for yet another trip to the bottom three?
So You Think You Can Dance 2, July 5: Killing Time , by Sting7: The field of fourteen has become quite a horserace among couples! Who has established themselves as the thoroughbreds of the group? Mary Murphy makes an early prediction for a winner. Who is she? Last week, Jaymz and Jessica narrowly managed to “slide” away from elimination. The pressure is definitely on them. Can they measure up?
So You Think You Can Dance 2, June 29: Some Things Are Better Left Unsaid , by Sting7: The last sixteen are about to become fourteen, as we journey on through season two of So You Think You Can Dance. Wednesday night, we saw all of the couples bringing their best. Now, one dancer’s mouth proves less talented than his feet. And the judges have not been so impressed with beautiful “Corpse Bride” Aleksandra of late. Will she survive?
So You Think You Can Dance 2, June 22: Gone So-Low , by Sting7: Wednesday night, the nine remaining couples put their best feet forward to stay in the competition. New favorites were crowned by Nigel, but two dancers are going home. And Rihanna is in distress! Dmitry and Joy had a rough time on performance, and a rougher time when results came around! What does that mean? Read on!
So You Think You Can Dance 2, June 21: Steppin’ Out and Steppin’ Up , by Sting7: The first week jitters claimed a few dancers last week, but everyone seems cured! One dancer shocks herself, one dancer apologizes, one dancer emerges as more special than anyone guessed, and another is woefully exposed. Musa and Natalie were voted hottest couple, but does Musa’s lack of training drag them down this week?
So You Think You Can Dance 2, June 15: Guilty Feet Have Got No Rhythm, by Sting7: Once again, we must endure an hour to get five minutes worth of information. Three dancing couples will be in the bottom three and in danger. One male and one female are going home! Is the answer so obviously Ashlee and Ben? What does Nelly Furtado have to do with any of this? The answers are here.
So You Think You Can Dance 2, June 14: Two Steps Forward, Two Steps Back , by Sting7: The top 20 are now dancing for your votes in So You Think You Can Dance! For most of the top 20, this is the first time we’ve seen them. What kind of impression do they make? How does Sting7’s pick to win, Travis Wall, fare? Will ballroom once again have Musa Cooper dancing for his life? Details are here!
So You Think You Can Dance 2, June 8: Fear and Loathing In Las Vegas , by Sting7: Wednesday night, we saw the first dancer take the stage to perform their solo – the one that will decide who makes the Top 20! A couple look like shoe-ins, but nothing is guarantee. Nigel told them bluntly, he decides who gets on! But what did he decide? Who is in the So You Think You Can Dance 2 Top 20?
So You Think You Can Dance 2, June 7: Five Days In Vegas , by Sting7: After seeing thousands of dancers, the field has been narrowed to a talented 116! Tonight, some dancers show they can’t miss. Some are surprises, even to themselves. One dancer sees the softer side of Nigel, and another definitely witnesses the dark side! What prompts Nigel to proclaim he is "not human"? Details are here!
So You Think You Can Dance 2, June 1st: The Chicago Massacre, Part Deux, by Sting7: Chicago is a city rich in culture and history. Surely there is a plethora of dance talent there! Apparently not. The judges’ claws are sharpened and well-worn by the time all is said and done. Soon, the question becomes, will anyone be sent to Vegas, or even asked to stick around? The answers are here!
So You Think You Can Dance 2, May 31: Dancing in L.A., by Sting7: Los Angeles is the city of big dreams and big dreamers – but can they dance?

Who’s joining Juliya and Stanislov in Las Vegas? Check in and see!
So You Think You Can Dance 2, May 25: Gimme Two Steps!, by Sting7: The surprise hit for Fox has returned for another season of dance and drama!

So You Think You Can Dance, The Finale: One Singular Sensation , by Sting7: After weeks of competition, bumps, bruises, insults, controversies, arrogant dancers, arguing judges, choreography complaints, battles, and one last raspberry from America, we are down to the this, the final night! So Ashle’, Jamile, Melody, and Nick all think they can dance. They can, but only one can win. Who will it be?
So You Think You Can Dance, September 28: The Last Dance, by Sting7: This is the night. This is the one that determines who will win So You Think You Can Dance, and the four remaining dancers are put through the paces like never before! But before that, there is the nasty business of eliminating to more dancers. The top six (Melody, Jamile, Ashle’, Blake, Kamelah, and Nick) are about to be reduced. If you think you know who’s leaving, you may want to guess again!
So You Think You Can Dance, September 21: Performance vs. Technique , by Sting7: There are only eight dancers left, and that will soon be six!

America decides this week! Who thinks they can dance, for real? Details are here.
So You Think You Can Dance, September 14: Familiarity Breeds Concern , by Sting7: There seems to be plenty of déjà vu on this episode. Some partners are paired yet again purely by luck. Some genres makes some dancers shine, others struggle. Yet, the smoke is clearing, and some frontrunners are emerging. However, two more dancers have got to go. Who will survive among the men – Ryan or Jamile?
So You Think You Can Dance, September 7: Love Me Two Times… Or Go Home , by Sting7: In short order, the Top 12 reduce to ten.

The details are here!
So You Think You Can Dance, August 31: Methinks the Judges Doth Expect Too Much?, by Sting7: The top fourteen will dwindle to twelve after tonight.

The matchups for the ladies and men dancing for survival will be among the toughest to call all season!
So You Think You Can Dance, August 24: Lightning Strikes Twice , by Sting7: The top sixteen are about to dwindle to a top fourteen as one man and one lady will be leaving the stage tonight. Will it be Jonnis, Artem, or Allen? Will it be Snow, Sandra, or Michelle? Meanwhile, lightning strikes twice for a number of pairs, including Blake and Destini, but will they be as magical as last week? Will Destini get some credit for her contribution to the dance?
So You Think You Can Dance, August 17: Overture, Dim the Lights..., by Sting7: On this, the first night of performances in front of an audience (and performances we get to vote for) we are in for a number of surprises. Two dancers emerge as early favorites, and they aren’t the two you might be thinking of. And, one dancer’s cockiness has put them directly on the chopping block. And... it's not Blake this time!

So You Think You Can Dance, July 27: Pairs and Pants, by Sting7: Just one city left to find the 25 best male and female dancers in America. Los Angeles!

But can they all make the cut with the tough show producers?
So You Think You Can Dance, July 20: New York and Chicago!, by Sting7: Tonight, the premeire of So You Think You Can Dance!

Reality Overload! A Preview of the Networks' Summer Reality Shows, by Mike DeGeorge: Bet you thought your reality show watching would be slowing down with all the recent finales, didn't you?
