We’ve got questions, and you’ve (maybe) got answers! With another week of TV gone by, we’re lobbing queries left and right about shows including The Strain, Under the Dome, Switched at Birth and Rookie Blue!
1 | Girl Meets World got pretty heavy with the Maya/mom storyline, right? Even if it cribbed from BMW’s Sean story some? And is anyone else starting to worry about Riley’s wackiness? Young Cory wasn’t that looney, was he?

CBS’ “Big Brother” opened up some distance on NBC’s “America’s Got Talent” on Wednesday as the night’s top show among young adults, as the former was on the rise while the latter joined Fox’s “So You Think You Can Dance” in falling to lows. Also of note, CW’s “Penn & Teller: Fool Us” hit a series high in its fourth week.
According to preliminary “live plus same-day” national estimates from Nielsen, “Big Brother” averaged a 2.3 rating/8 share in adults 18-49 and 6.6 million viewers overall in the 8 o’clock hour, dominating the time period and standing as the night’s No. 1 show in 18-49 and 25-54 (2.7/9). “Brother” was up a tenth in 18-49 from last week (as well as the comparable night last year), matching its highest score on any night this summer.

Thanks to a “Big Brother” rise and an “America's Got Talent” slip, CBS finished first in the key demographic on Wednesday. NBC, which tied for second with Univision in the 18-49 demo, claimed a victory in total viewers. Fox's “So You Think You Can Dance” dipped to a new regular episode low, while NBC's “Talent” tied a prior one.

Fast National ratings for Wednesday, August 20, 2014. "Big Brother" ranked as Wednesday's top show among young viewers and helped CBS win the night in that measure, while "America's Got Talent" led NBC to an overall victory. CBS' double-dose of "Extant" was roughly consistent with recent airings and beat "Taxi Brooklyn" overall in the 10 p.m. hour. Among other notables, Fox's "So You Think You Can Dance" slipped again, while The CW's "Penn & Teller: Fool Us" rose again, though both variations were relatively miniscule. On to the numbers... Among adults 18-49, CBS averaged a 1.4 rating for Wednesday night, edging out NBC's 1.3 rating in the key demographic. ABC and Fox both averaged a 0.9 key demo rating, while The CW averaged a 0.4 key demo rating. Overall, though, NBC averaged an estimated 6.57 million viewers and a 4.2 rating/7 share for Wednesday primetime, beating CBS' 5.91 million viewers and 3.7/7. ABC averaged 3.55 million viewers and a 2.4/4 for the night, »

Fox’s So You Think You Can Dance this Wednesday night drew 3.45 million total viewers and a 0.9 demo rating (per finals), dipping to series lows on both counts.
CBS’ Big Brother (6.6 mil/2.3) led the night in the demo, rising two tenths week-to-week. The double-pump of Extant averaged 5.6 mil/1.0, on par with the show’s previous outing and improving on the most recent Criminal Minds repeat at 9 pm.

I’m not gonna lie to you: I went into tonight’s So You Think You Can Dance Top 6 performance episode with my mind made up.
Rudy and Tanisha got robbed last week. Valerie had no business being in the Top 6. For justice to prevail, the Season 11 crown could only end up in one spot: Atop Ricky’s artistically dazzling head.

Well, we are heading into the home stretch, So You Think You Can Dance fans! This week the top six dancers will perform with some of our favorite All-Stars as they try to dance their way to the finale. Who will win accolades this time?
I must admit I was a bit shocked by the elimination of Rudy Abreu and Tanisha Belnap last week. I was especially surprised that Tanisha was sent home. This week we also will enjoy a musical performance from Rixton of their single "Me and My Broken Heart."
Is your favorite dancer still in the So You Think You Can Dance competition? Who will move forward, and who will go home?
Buckle up, folks. This is the So You Think You Can Dance live blog! »
It was another amazing round of So You Think You Can Dance performances. Sadly, we also had to bid farewell to Tanisha Belnap and Rudy Abreu. This couple, who were paired together this season, were both pretty emotional as they were sent home. Thankfully, I had my tissues handy. Suffice it to say that goodbyes will only get harder, dance fans, as we move toward the season 11 finale.
So who shined this week, and who is in danger of seeing their So You Think You Can Dance dreams end? Let's try and determine who may be going home based on this week's dances. »
Exclusive: Executive producer John Legend and writer-director John Swetnam (Step Up All In and Into the Storm ) have teamed with DanceOn, the multi-channel YouTube network co-founded by Madonna, on a unique casting call for the upcoming dance pic Breaking Through. Dancers will be selected from submissions to the DanceOn site to either perform at a live taped event this month or have their videos appear in the internet generation coming-of-age drama starring Sophia Aguiar and Jordan Rodrigues.
The casting call is the first initiative in the filmmakers’ partnership with DanceOn, a YouTube network created as online community for dancers and dance lovers. DanceOn’s 10 million-plus subscribers and over 2 billion video views also mean that in addition to being a source for undiscovered talent, DanceOn is a strategic promotional partner that’ll put Breaking Through in front of its target audience early on. The venture was founded by Madonna, Guy Oseary, »

So the big Emmys don't air until next Sunday night and at Moviefone we will have, of course, full coverage. But last night the Creative Arts Emmys were handed out, for the people that are largely responsible for making these shows that you absolutely love -- you know, the behind-the-scenes talent tasked with conceptualizing and realizing your favorite programs. Oh -- and some guest actor and actresses awards were handed out, so there's that too!
In the Outstanding Guest Actress in a Comedy Series category Uzo Aduba took home the prize for "Orange is the New Black." Since we are, very shamefully, one of a handful of Americans who hasn't seen a single second of "Orange in the New Black," this doesn't mean a whole lot to us, but we are very happy for her! (We promise, we'll watch soon.) For the Outstanding Guest Actor in a Comedy Series, the »

Exclusive Interview With Travis Wall
Wall, 26, has been a choreographer on Fox’s So You Think You Can Dance for the past five years, but he was also a finalist on the show’s second season in 2006. In his time as a contestant, Wall was featured in one of the most beloved Sytycd dances, known as ‘the Bench Routine.’
Wall recently returned to the stage, performing his Emmy-nominated routine “Wicked Game” alongside Season 10 winner Amy Yakima. “I had a blast doing it,” Wall told uInterview.
Travis Wall On Emotional Choreography
“Wicked Game” might just be one of Wall’s favorite pieces from his catalogue, though he revealed to uInterview that the dance he choreographed for his mother in 2009 is also a favorite of his. »
Travis Wall, just one of the Emmy-nominated So You Think You Can Dance choreographers, took a break from the dance competition’s 11th season to speak to uInterview about his tear-jerking choreography. Wall, 26, first competed on season 2 of Sytycd when he was 18, and returned as a choreographer for season 5 in 2009. Outside of Sytycd, Wall teaches dance and started his own dance company, Shaping Sound.
Wall has quickly become a fan-favorite choreographer, and is equally popular among contestants, who go to him looking for advice. “They ask for advice, like, ‘What do I do after the show?’ I think the contestants are excited to get to work with me because of the experience I’ve had on the show,” Wall told uInterview.
Though Wall tends to stay off the Sytycd stage, he performed his piece, "Wicked Game," alongside season 10 winner Amy Yakima in 2013, earning himself his forth Emmy nomination. Read what »

The first round of 2014 Emmy Awards were handed out at the Creative Arts Emmys ceremony on Saturday (August 16) night at the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles. The ceremony, which precedes the Monday, August 25 Primetime Emmy Awards telecast, offered signs of hope for a number of drama and comedy hopefuls. Netflix's "Orange Is The New Black," for example, won Emmys for editing, series casting and for Uzo Aduba, who is considered a guest actress for the purposes of these awards. No other comedy series was able to build any other momentum going into next week's show, with "The Big Bang Bang Theory," "Nurse Jackie," "How I Met Your Mother" and "Brooklyn Nine-Nine" grabbing isolated tech prizes and Jimmy Fallon winning the Guest Actor in a Comedy Series award for the second time in three years for his "Saturday Night Live" hosting duties.
