A few years ago, Fox had some of the top-rated TV shows on the air. Now, the network is struggling. Which series will be cancelled and which will be renewed? Stay tuned.
How do the execs decide what to cancel or keep? They look at a lot of different factors but the ratings play a very large role. The higher the ratings, the better chances a show has of surviving.
Fox shows this season (so far): American Idol, Are You Smarter Than a 5th Grader?, Backstrom, Bob's Burgers, Bones, Boom!, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Bullseye, Empire, Family Guy, The Following, Glee, Golan the Insatiable, Gotham, Gracepoint, Hell's Kitchen, Home Free, Knock Knock Live, The Last Man on Earth, MasterChef, MasterChef Junior, The Mindy Project, Mulaney, New Girl, Red Band Society, The Simpsons, Sleepy Hollow, So You Think You Can Dance, Utopia, Wayward Pines, and Weird Loners. »
Along with Twitch, Travis, Allison, Lauren and Katherine, one of the names that immediately comes to mind when thinking of So You Think You Can Dance is Alex Wong. Known as Alex Freakin’ Wong to the fans of the show, this incredible dancer is always a highlight when he comes back as an all-star on Sytycd. This season once again he created magic on stage and thrilled the audience, the judges, Nakul and Jaja in the Bollywood number he did on the August 17th Top 10 performance show.
Check it out!
We recently talked to choreographer Nakul Dev Mahajan about this exciting piece, (which you can read here) and now we get an inside look from Alex about naaching Bolly-shtyle on Sytycd. Check it out!
Alex says he loves doing Bollywood, “It’s honestly one of my favorite styles to do on the show »

Whereas So You Think You Can Dance has been a little sleepy and stale, America's Best Dance Crew has been giving us the elixir of reality-television life. This all-stars reboot is nothing short of fantastic, so it's fitting that the final three crews are the most talented, inventive, and unique crews left — Quest, Super Cr3w, and Kinjaz. The crews performed two dances on Wednesday night, and we're picking our favorite from each. They're all so great that it's more a matter of taste than ability, which is a great place for a competition show to be.Quest Crew, "Shut Up and Dance" Is it any surprise that Quest Crew toured with Lmfao? They don't quite have the laser precision of Kinjaz or the technique of Super Cr3w, but they've got a sense of drama. (Like when they did an Ariana Grande performance in drag.) This is a perfect »

Jennifer O’Connell is exiting as the company’s head of U.S. Television. Matt Sharp, CEO of Core’s Sharp Entertainment banner, will now oversee all development and production for Core’s TV efforts, both scripted and unscripted.
Core Media Group is formally part of the joint venture that its former majority owner, private equity giant Apollo Global Management, struck last year with 21st Century Fox — a merger that combined Apollo’s Endemol and Core with Fox’s Shine Group. But in fact, Core’s operations have remained at arm’s length from Endemol and Shine, which have fully merged into a single unit with production-distribution outposts around the world. Core functions within the joint venture fall under a shared-services agreement for select back-office support systems. »

During "Top 10 Week" on "So You Think You Can Dance," Gaby Diaz performed a geisha-themed hip-hop routine at the end of the show that blew away the judges. That seemed to be a crucial turning point for the tap specialist, because she skyrocketed into second place in our users' predictions, ahead of former frontrunner Jim Nowakowski, who now ranks third. On Monday night, she wowed the judges yet again with a heartfelt contemporary dance, and our predictions reflect that; she continues to gain ground. Is she peaking at the right time? -Break- Travis Wall ('Sytycd') Emmy interview: Marriage equality inspired nominated dance (Exclusive Video) Diaz still has significant ground to make up if she's going to catch current frontrunner Jaja Vankova, whom 40% of users are predicting to win the season. But considering the judges' consistent praise of both of them and their continued popularity with viewers – ne...' »
Written and exec-produced by Craig Brewer (Hustle & Flow), Fox’s “modern reimagining” of the original film will, per the official logline, follow on-the-run rodeo-circuit rider Kyle (played by Sense8‘s Alfonso Herrera) and Gaby, “two star-crossed young lovers, as they pursue their dreams and passions through the sweat of line-dancing in honky-tonks, »
Hailee Payne has become my favorite dancer for Team Stage on "So You Think You Can Dance" this season, but she landed in the bottom two Monday night despite week after week of consistent performances. Will she be eliminated from the show next week, or will her consistency pay off? -Break- Travis Wall ('Sytycd') Emmy interview: Marriage equality inspired nominated dance (Exclusive Video) On Monday night, her teammate Jim Nowakowski performed a hip-hop routine that the judges criticized; it was the second week in a row that they faulted him for lacking connection to the character and story of his dance. The ballet specialist has had trouble finding his inner hip-hop star before, but he has never been among the bottom dancers since live shows began. Meanwhile, while Nowakowski struggled to find his swagger, Payne unleashed her inner Missy Elliott during her own showstopping hip-hop dance, in which she held her own with all-st. »

ABC’s “Bachelor in Paradise” continues to pick up ratings steam, on Monday hitting another summer high and standing as the night’s top series in key demos.
According to preliminary “live plus same-day” estimates from Nielsen, “Bachelor in Paradise” (1.8/6 in 18-49, 5.5 million viewers overall) shot up 20% (0.3) from last week for its highest rating in the show’s two seasons to date. It was followed by discussion show “After Paradise” (1.1/3 in 18-49, 4.0 million viewers overall), which also hit a high and moved up to second place among the Big Four for its 9 o’clock hour. Drama “Whispers” held steady at 10 p.m. (0.6/2 in 18-49, 2.7 million viewers overall) one week from its finale.
ABC tied with NBC for the night’s lead among young adults, though NBC’s average may come down in the nationals due to a preemption for an NFL preseason game in Cincinnati.

Last night, it was announced that Gaby Diaz, Jim Nowakowski and Hailee Payne are the Top Three Stage finalists and Megan “Megz” Alfonso, Virgil Gadson and Jana “Jaja” Vankova are the Top Three Street finalists to move one step closer to the final round. Team Stage finalist Derek Piquette and Team Street finalist Eddie “Neptune” Eskridge were sent home on So You Think You Can Dance. Next week, on Monday, Aug. 31 (8:00-10:00 Pm Et live/Pt tape-delayed), the Top Six finalists – (Stage): Gaby Diaz, Jim Nowakowski and Hailee Payne (Street): Megan “Megz” Alfonso, Virgil Gadson and Jana “Jaja” Vankova – will be paired with All-Star partners. Next week’s All-Stars include: Anya Garnis (Season Three), Robert Roldan (Season Seven), Melanie Moore (Season Eight), Joshua Allen (Season Four), Marko Germar (Season Eight) and Alex Wong (Season Seven). The Top Six finalists had this to say about making it this far in… »

It was bound to happen eventually: after three weeks of predicting the elimination of Derek Piquette on "So You Think You Can Dance," we were finally right. He was ousted from Team Stage after spending most of the competition among the bottom dancers. But to the surprise of most of our users, Team Street standout Eddie "Neptune" Eskridge joined him on the chopping block. -Break- Exclusive Video: Travis Wall ('Sytycd') Emmy interview: Marriage equality inspired nominated dance A whopping 81% of our users bet on Piquette to be sent home, but only 18% of us thought Neptune would go too. We thought Neptune's teammate Megz Alfonso was much likelier to exit; she did end up in the bottom two, but narrowly escaped. Our racetrack odds were also wrong forecasting the second bottom dancer on Team Stage. After mixed reviews from the judges last week, 52% of us thought Jim Nowakowski would land at the bottom for the first. »
This week’s So You Think You Can Dance practically deserved its own post on Craigslist.
You were the All-Star wearing beige who kept gesticulating wildly with your arms… I was the Team Stage dancer trying to keep my head above water in a complicated routine… You were Medusa, and how the heck am I supposed to make that work?
Yes, I’m exaggerating a wee bit, and no, I am not Michael Slezak. (More on that in a moment.) But the gulf that existed between some of this season’s Top 8 and their All-Star partners was considerable as the week’s routines unfolded, »
Nakul Dev Mahajan is known as Hollywood’s Bollywood choreographer and has, along with training students in the art of Bollywood dance at his Bollywood dance academies, been making contestants naach to the Hindi film music beat on the popular dance reality show So You Think You Can Dance (Sytycd) since Season 4. With many memorable numbers including his first to ‘Dhoom Taana’ featuring Sytycd super couple Joshua and Katee, the choreographer has, with a folk classic flavor, given audiences a wonderful view into this amazing dance style.
I recently chatted with the choreographer, in two wonderful interviews, about all things bolly-naach including his two numbers on Sytycd so far this season, his special judging appearance on a popular Indian dance reality show and so much more. I could present everything we chatted about in our fun and always fabulous conversations but would take way to long to read so please check out the highlights… »

Our users are confident about who will be eliminated Monday night on "So You Think You Can Dance": Megz Alfonso from Team Street and Derek Piquette from Team Stage – and this time we mean it! This is the third week in a row we've forecast Piquette's ouster, but he's been untouchable, landing in the bottom two or bottom three almost every week but escaping by the skin of his teeth each time. -Break- Travis Wall ('Sytycd') Emmy interview: Marriage equality inspired nominated dance (Exclusive Video) So while a whopping 81% of users are betting on Piquette to go home, his three teammates – Hailee Payne, Gaby Diaz and Jim Nowakowski – might rightly be shaking in their boots. Nowakowski especially has reason to be nervous. In "Top 10 Week," almost all of his competitors outdid themselves on the dance floor, while he received the night's only mixed reviews from judges. Though he has been ca. »
It was an amazing night of competition on So You Think You Can Dance. There were a couple of routines that didn't quite reach the same level as some of the other performances, but that said, much of the dancing was spectacular.
Last time, we said goodbye to Team Stage's Edson Juarez and Team Street's injured Jessica "Jj" Rabone. So let's take a look at the performances and see who will be exiting the stage next.
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 Girl Meets World, The Fosters, Zoo and Graceland!
1 | As much as we loved seeing Eric and Jack reunite on Girl Meets World, isn’t it weird that they didn’t know they were meeting each other? What kind of senator sets up a meeting with a potential business associate without asking for his name? (Bonus question: Lucas or Charlie?!)
Emmy-nominated choreographer Travis Wall has come full circle on "So You Think You Can Dance." He tells us in our exclusive video chat (watch it below), "For me to be a contestant [in season two], and then to be brought back as a choreographer, and to be nominated [for five straight Emmys], and then maybe this year, maybe next year, to win, it would be a full wrap-around moment. It would just be incredible." -Break- 'So You Think You Can Dance' Poll: Who do You want to win this season? This year, he's nominated for choreographing three routines: a male group number set to "Wave" by Beck, a contemporary duet to "When I Go" by Over the Rhine and a marriage equality-themed group number set to "Wind Beneath My Wings" sung by RyanDan. "I knew I wanted to do either a duet or a group that had two men dancing together and two women dancing together, »
Two weeks ago, we asked our readers what they thought of this season's "Stage vs. Street" format on "So You Think You Can Dance," which pits formally trained stage dancers against naturally gifted performers of street styles. The verdict is in: viewers don't like it. -Break- 'Sytycd' power rankings: Why Team Street will ultimately win the season Only 10.7% of our respondents said they love the change in format this season. Another 29.14% are neutral, saying they could take it or leave it. But a whopping 60.16% say they hate it. Do you agree with their assessment? You can keep voting in our poll at the bottom of this post. On Monday night, the show narrowed down the contest to the top eight dancers. The four remaining members of Team Stage are Gaby Diaz, Jim Nowakowski, Hailee Payne and Derek Piquette. They face off against Team Street dancers Megz Alfonso, Eddie Eskridge, Virgil Gadson and Jaja Vankova. »
