Nigel Lythgoe broke some huge news about So You Think You Can Dance on Twitter today, “#FOX have cancelled the results show so I will have to change the format of #SYTYCD. At least we have another season at the end of MAY.” He then said two hours later, “Don’t worry #SYTYCD fans. I’m thrilled we have a new series. We’ll do our best to find some great talent starting next week in Atlanta.”
I am happy with the changes because the results show had become a one hour bore. I just hope that one of the changes is our vote eliminates the dancers and not the judges. I very rarely agreed with their decisions and the show is still on the air because we watch it not because of the judges that are on it. Plus with the reality dance show being cut down to one day, it also means less time for the judges to go on their useless rants that were more about their egos than the dancers.
Finally I hope this smart decision by Fox means that results shows are a thing of the past and we all won’t have to waste an hour of our time for something that can be done in 5 minutes. Seriously who likes any of the results show including the ones for American Idol, Dancing with the Stars, America’s Got Talent and The Voice.
