There is a curious, almost parental response to seeing former child stars become adults – especially when so few manage to do so unscathed
When it comes to sudden bursts of sobbing, I tend to cry mostly where I’m meant to: a sad commercial about a lonely pensioner; anything to do with baby animals in crisis; the entire back catalogue of Joni Mitchell.
So it was a surprise when I felt tears stinging my eyes as I watched Bindi Irwin and Derek Hough take on the rumba – complete with “that lift” from Dirty Dancing – on the Us Dancing With the Stars. What was I, a grown woman without the slightest interest in the Irwin dynasty or celebrity dance contests (I’m more of a So You Think You Can Dance type), with a well-developed distaste for anything Society of the Spectacle-esque, doing frantically scouring the net each week for the »

Nigel Lythgoe is making his dance floor digital.
The “So You Think You Can Dance” co-creator is producing “Every Single Step,” a competition series for choreographers that will premiere on Nov. 19 on Verizon’s Go90 channel.
With acclaimed music video choreographer — and “Sytycd” alum — Brian Friedman as its mentor and Vine star Liza Koshy as its host, the series pits 10 choreographers against each other in themed challenges and hopes to do for that industry what “Project Runway” did for fashion designers.
“It’s been over 10 years since I started ‘So You Think You Can Dance’ and during that time I’ve seen how dancers techniques have improved exponentially,” Lythgoe told Variety. “I think the street dancers have inspired and excited the formally trained with their fearless attitude to music and movement. And the trained dancers have shown the street kids how important technique is. This has led to a thriving, »

The adage “Dance like nobody’s watching” doesn’t really apply to the ballerinas of Starz’s new Flesh and Bone. As members of one of the most prestigious ballet companies in the country, these slender, determined athletes must move like every single step, gesture and facial expression is being scrutinized in microscopic detail.
Because it is.
On that tip, we’d like to hear what you thought of the limited series, which premiered Sunday. But first, a brief recap:
Long before he wrote the wild, dramatic score for Batman and the twisted song cycle that runs through the beloved Nightmare Before Christmas, Danny Elfman's original claim to cinematic fame was far quirkier than anything he'd ever dream up for Tim Burton: He portrayed Satan, dressed in a long-tail white tux, conducting an orchestra of goblins in a run-through of every "hidey-hidey-hidey-ho" in Cab Calloway's "Minnie the Moocher." The episode, in the campy 1980 cult hit Forbidden Zone, found the redheaded composer wiggling, shimmying and writhing as he »
I come from a family that bakes. We’re not professional bakers, but for as long as I can remember, we’ve gathered around homemade cakes at every birthday, spent every Thanksgiving eating way too much homemade pie, and shared trays of homemade Christmas cookies every December. My great-grandmother baked four pies a day to feed the workers on her farm and growing up, my mom was constantly baking bread for sandwiches or cookies for us to bring into class. To me, baking is much more than transforming flour and eggs into delicious concoctions; it’s about community, about sharing your hard work with others and expressing in a small way your appreciation of them. It’s about hours spent in the kitchen with family, learning tips and tricks passed down the generations, taking a pile of ordinary ingredients and, through chemistry, creating something special. While myriad cooking and baking programs air each year, »

A new dance competition series is in the planning stages for Fox. With Dancing with the Stars still highly popular, there is always a push for another hot dance series on television. However, the networks have not struck gold with another dance competition series since the premiere of So You Think You Can Dance.
Remember Paula Abdul's dance series on CBS? Yeah, probably not.
According to The Wrap, Fox has joined with the producers of The Voice and American Idol on a new dance competition series though. This weekly series will focus on actual couples that will train and compete against each other.
No name has been given to the series yet. Would you watch actual couples trying to figure out ballroom dancing each week? Tell us what you think. »
Fox is expanding their unscripted slate with a new dance competition show in development, Variety has learned.
The untitled series is created by “The Voice” exec producer Stijn Bakkers and FremantleMedia North America’s Evp of alternative Toby Gorman. FremantleMedia’s Jennifer Mullin will also serve as an exec producer.
The new dance competition will highlight the lives of real-life couples who, each week, will participate in intensive training, rehearsals and live performances, until one couple is crowned the winner at the end of the season.
The development comes as Fox is looking toward “American Idol” signing off with its last season debuting this upcoming January, which will free up the network’s programming schedule. With the loss of “Idol,” Fox will surely be looking for the next reality hit. The net is also no stranger to unscripted dance shows, as “So You Think You Can Dance” wrapped its 12th season in September. »

Another monster “Sunday Night Football” result combined with the finales of summer hits “America’s Got Talent” and “American Ninja Warrior” to keep NBC on top of the primetime ratings leaderboard in key demos.
NBC’s much-anticipated Seattle-Green Bay matchup on “Sunday Night Football,” a rematch of last January’s Nfc Championship game, averaged a 9.7 rating/29 share in adults 18-49 and 26.38 million viewers to lead all programs for the week, according to Nielsen “live plus same-day” estimates. This was the largest audience for a Week 2 NFL primetime game in 24 years (since Dallas-Washington on ABC’s “Monday Night Football” in 1991).

Combined with the opener between the Philadelphia Eagles and Atlanta Falcons 5.3 rating in 18-49, 13.56 million viewers overall), this year »
