    The big guys always had 2 hour performance shows and in some cases 1 hour results shows. Now that ratings are dropping they dumped the results shows.

    Survivor, Amazing Race were able to be edited into a 1 hour block and are a different animal entirely.
    You can bet that the cooking competitions would have gone two hour if they had the ratings.

    yay for Ricky !

    For some reason it went over our heads that there was only 1 winner this year vs. 2 the last 2 seasons, even as they described the prize package. Ricky and Valerie seemed like locks for the top 2 anyhow.

    I missed this season in its entirety (some seasons I watch, some I don't), but my wife and daughter watched and enjoyed it, and so a few months ago I got us all tickets for the tour - the show is tomorrow night. I'm looking forward to it.

    I'm happy it was renewed albeit the twist sounds kinda lame.

    Yeah, gimmicks rarely add anything.
    Just get some good dancing people with personalities- last season I barely learned everyone's name, they were all so bland.

    I want the special edition version SYTYCD where the pros from Dancing with the Stars are the contestants. :p

    Mandy Moore is choreographing so many group number for DwtS, they might as well have a fusion challenge.

    Let Derek Hough have to learn someone else's sadistic choreography for a change.

    I just read another tidbit that Mary Murphy might be stepping down and they might bring in Paula Abdul...

    As much as I don't especially like MM, this would bring a serious *ugh* from me.

    To be honest, I think SYTYCT has run its course and should be humanely put down after this season. Project Runway isn't too far behind.

    I could say the same for just about all the competition based "reality" shows like DWTS, Idol, The Voice, Inkmaster etc.
    It was a phase in television and IMO their expiration date is here.

    In fact the only show of this type that I still enjoy is Face Off and that is because the showrunners have made the incredibly wise decision to skip 100% of the drama not directly involved in the actual competition.

    The show I'm enjoying a lot right now is Master Chef Junior. It probably helps that I never watch the original Master Chef for grown-ups and the judges aren't mean.

    I should have remembered Master Chef Junior.
    I enjoy it and I loathe children.
