>Now that Idol is done Fox is rolling out it’s summer reality powerhouse So You Think You Can Dance (or SYTYCD to Taylor)! Â The season premiere is a dance packed 2 hours which, when you take into account Thursdays normally busy schedule, means it might cause some headaches.
But there are a couple of things to take note off
–Lost is taking the night off forÂ preparationÂ of next weeks 2 hour season finale
–The Office, 30 Rock, CZzzzI and ER are all dunzo for the season
Which only leaves Grey’s Anatomy and it’s very own 2hr finale on Thursday night. Â But fret not if you live in Canada, CTV is going to take care of you. Â Grey’s will be starting at a very early 7pm and then it will be followed at 9pm by the SYTYCD premiere. Â While I realize that it might feel weird to watch 4 straight hours of television, I think it is a worthy sacrifice for such great television.
yeah that is right SYTYCD is great television. Â After several discussions with several friends this week I have no problem saying that FOX’s dance show is the most entertaining of the reality competition shows out there. Â Initially I wasn’t a fan but you try having two separate dancer roommates (no not strippers) and see how long you last. Â But now I have no problem admitting that I have already Season Passed the show for the entire summer season. Â Â
The reason why it is so much better than anything out there is that because for one you have to be talented. Â Sob stories, funny talents or a so-so personality won’t make the cut. Â The show is based purely on theÂ aspiringÂ dancers talent which makes this show oftenÂ dazzlingÂ and inspirational to watch. Â The other great thing is that the judges decide who is eliminated. Â America chooses only the bottom three. This way we are leaving it up to the professionals which is why they are judges in the first place right. Â
So while everyone else is outside enjoying the sun and human contact I will be exactly where I want to me. Â On my couch criticizing people who are doing something with their lives. (I wonder if I can apply for The Biggest Loser if I weigh 130pds?)
