As we plow through more seasons of "Big Brother," "So You Think You Can Dance," and "The Bachelor" this summer, it's hard not to ask what the merits of winning a reality competition are. Do we applaud manipulative prowess? Sheer talent? Sheer watchability? Every show is different, but -- with the exception of the last couple seasons of "Sytycd" -- one thing is certain: There can only be one winner. And fans usually bathe that winner in a glorious light for eternity. Unless that winner is a drug-ring leader on "Big Brother" or a tax-evading weirdo on "Survivor," of course. Then exceptions are made. We got to thinking about our favorite reality shows and the winners who made them great. After narrowing down the options and reducing reality TV to its most phenomenal victories and players, we came up with this Top 11. Enjoy below, the 11 greatest reality show winners ever. »

While it may still be easier for New York dancers to break into the industry, the number of commercial jobs available in Los Angeles is rising, experts say. Debbie Allen, a veteran performer and choreographer, founded a dance school in Los Angeles but often advises students to go east when they start looking for work. “There are musicals, there’s Off-Broadway, there’s Off-Off-Broadway. We just don’t have the theater expansion in L.A.,” she told Backstage before a recent SAG Foundation event. “Most of the work here is cinema.” She noted that films like “Step Up,” which is in its fifth installment, and TV series such as “Dancing with the Stars” and “So You Think You Can Dance” have given dancers opportunities in Hollywood. But for those starting out, the opportunities are limited. In New York, meanwhile, even scripted series such as HBO’s “Boardwalk Empire” hire dancers. »

Audiences stuck with their reality favorites on Wednesday, as CBS’ “Big Brother” and NBC’s “America’s Got Talent” were the top draws among young adults while dramas “Extant” on CBS and “Motive” on ABC fell to lows. One scripted bright spot was NBC’s “Taxi Brooklyn,” which took advantage of its stronger lead-in to hit series highs.
According to preliminary “Live plus same-day” national estimates from Nielsen, “Big Brother” (2.3 rating/9 share in adults 18-49, 6.6 million viewers overall) was up two tenths week to week, its third straight week of Wednesday growth; head-to-head, it beat NBC’s “America’s Got Talent” in 18-49 (2.3 vs. 2.1). At 9 p.m., though, drama “Extant” (1.1/4 in 18-49, 6.4 million viewers overall) was affected by the stronger “Talent” competition, tumbling four tenths in the demo and losing about 1.5 million total viewers week to week.
In its first two weeks, “Extant” saw its averages grow by six tenths »

America’s Got Talent‘s Top 48 reveal drew 10.3 million total viewers — easily Wednesday’s biggest audience — and a 2.4 rating (per finals), matching its Tuesday demo and edging out Big Brother for the nightly win.
NBC’s fresh serving of Agt set Taxi Brooklyn up for gains of 13 and 25 percent, to 5.3 mil/1.0.

Fast National ratings for Wednesday, July 23, 2014. "America's Got Talent" and, to a much lesser extent, a series high for "Taxi Brooklyn" helped NBC control Wednesday night in all measures. Over on CBS, despite a strong week for "Big Brother," "Extant" continued its steady decline. That was pretty much it for Wednesday's notables, though "So You Think You Can Dance" was very slightly up for Fox, while "Motive" was slightly down for ABC. On to the numbers... Among adults 18-49, NBC averaged a 1.9 rating for Wednesday night, easily beating CBS' 1.4 rating in the key demographic. Fox was third for the night with a 1.1 key demo rating, followed by the 0.8 key demo rating for ABC. The CW averaged a 0.2 key demo rating. Overall, NBC averaged an estimated 8.63 million viewers and a 5.1 rating/9 share for Wednesday night, far ahead of the 6 million viewers and 3.9/7 for CBS. Fox and ABC both averaged a 2.3/4, with »

Comic Con has barely started and we're already exhausted, so a night of reality television is exactly what the TV doctor ordered to help us rest up for the insanity ahead. Tonight, a liar showed off her singing skills on a dancing show, and a bunch of adults found out who won the World Cup nearly two weeks after it happened, and we've got unnecessarily extensive recaps of it all for your enjoyment. So You Think You Can Dance: Thanks to tonight's episode of "So You Want To Feel Really Bad About Yourself and Your Body," we realized that we've never wanted to wear anything more than we want to wear Tanisha's leather body suit and bright red boots. Would we look good in it? No. Does that change »
Get ready for another exciting night of competition, So You Think You Can Dance fans! We said goodbye to ballerina Jourdan Epstein and contemporary dancer Stanley Glover last time. Will your favorite be going home after last week's votes? I have to say that I miss the solos, giving dancers the chance to "dance for their lives."
Are you ready, dance fans? This is the So You Think You Can Dance live blog! »
Strong numbers for Major League Baseball’s All-Star Game and improved results for scripted originals “24: Live Another Day” and “Gang Related” lifted Fox to a rare primetime ratings victory in young adults last week — its first in the nearly six months since it aired the Super Bowl in early February.
TNT, meanwhile, continues to be the dominant cable network in scripted programming this summer. Last week, hot newcomer “The Last Ship” drew its largest demo audience since its premiere, and for summer-to-date, the net possesses the top four scripted basic cable originals in adults 25-54 as well as six of the top 10 in total viewers.
Overall, according to “Live plus same-day” estimates from Nielsen, Fox led in adults 18-49 with a 1.4 rating/5 share, followed by Univision (1.2/4), CBS and NBC (both at 1.1/4), ABC (0.9/3), and Telemundo and top cabler TBS (both at 0.6/2).
CBS won for a fifth straight week in total viewers, »

It was another fabulous night of performances on So You Think You Can Dance. We also had to say farewell to Jourdan Epstein and Stanley Glover. The judges decided to go by America's votes, and these dancers saw their journey end because they received the lowest number of votes. In a bit of good news, we found out about a romance between Jacque LeWarne and Rudy Abreu.
Is your favorite So You Think You Can Dance performer safe from elimination? Let's examine the performances and see who may be in danger of going home next time. »
Did Kate Hudson binge watch Paula Abdul music videos before getting dressed for the day? Or maybe she made a killer Pandora station from a combo of Real McCoy and vintage Mariah Carey tunes? Somehow this modern celeb decided she wanted to take a trip down fashion memory lane with a spandex suit fit for a Richard Simmons sweat session. We'd be more critical if it didn't look so totally killer on the mom of two's body! Look at that flawless fit! Who cares if it belongs on an episode of So You Think You Can Dance. Kate Hudson thinks she can rock a skintight, one-piece body suit, and she's right. We just hope Zach Braff's co-star is headed straight from her Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon »
Fox and FX’s stars were out in full force on Sunday night, taking over the penthouse of swanky West Hollywood private members’ club Soho House for their annual Television Critics Assn. summer soiree. Guests dined on fried chicken, tender brisket and corn on the cob in the terrace garden, while the young stars of “Red Band Society” played darts and table hockey in the main club. Servers kept attendees snacking with woodfired pizza and mini grilled cheese sandwiches accompanied by shots of tomato soup, and dessert included bitesize butterscotch puddings and freshly fried donuts.
“Red Band” and “So You Think You Can Dance” stars crammed the corridor outside the venue’s popular Polaroid photo booth, while “Gotham” scene-stealers Robin Lord Taylor and Cory Michael Smith spent much of the night beset by press trying to glean intel on the highly anticipated Batman prequel series. Likewise, “The Strain’s” Corey Stoll »

Fox’s “cynical-but-hopeful” comedy Mulaney has been on an interesting journey since its early days as an NBC pilot — but creator/executive producer/star John Mulaney is confident in the show’s future, largely because of the strength of its cast.
“The biggest revelation to me [during this process] was seeing the strength of the ensemble,” Mulaney told reporters Sunday during the Television Critics Association summer press tour, noting that we’ll really see the cast come together in Episode 6. “This is a very potent weapon. »
Fox’s Gotham, as it chronicles police detective Jim Gordon’s rise to the eventual post of police commissioner, will introduce not one but four foes — Penguin, Catwoman, The Riddler and original creation Fish Mooney — in its series premiere. However, don’t expect a plethora of baddies every week.
