Tonight’s TV Spotlight…Thursday, May 21, 2009

May 21, 2009 by  

There’s no rest for the wary. AMERICAN IDOL may be over but Fox isn’t about to let me have any down time. Tonight is the season premiere of SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE – my favorite reality show. Yes, I love my IDOL, but I’d take SYTYCD over the singing competition any day. Yes, it’s that good. And if you’ve never watched SYTYCD, give it a shot this season – I think you’ll find yourself drawn in my the talent and passion of these dancers.

(Sorry, but with all the IDOL buzz I haven’t spent much time pushing SYTYCD on newbies. I’m making up for lost time.)

So You Think You Can Dance | 8pm on Fox | 2-hour Season Premiere
The search for America’s favorite dancer begins again tonight with the kick off of Season 5 of SYTYCD. Dancers audition in Denver, Los Angeles, Memphis, Tenn., Miami, New York and Seattle. [GMMR: SYTYCD is already auditioning for S6 which will air in the Fall. They will be in Boston a week from today, and believe me, I’m all over it. Hopefully Fox will help us out.]

Ugly Betty | 8pm on ABC | 2-hour Season Finale
“Curve Ball” & “The Fall Issue”
Henry comes back to New York just as Matt and Betty get ready to move in together; Daniel is invited to appear on “The View”; Marc and Betty compete for the same job; Wilhelmina threatens to reveal Claire’s secret. [GMMR: Tonight marks the last episode of UGLY BETTY on Thursday nights. Next season the show returns in the dreaded Friday night time slot. Will you be watching?]

Southland | 10pm on NBC | Season Finale
Officers find a dead gang member in the trunk of a car; Detective Bryant asks Lydia to take Janilla in; the rift between Detective Salinger and his daughter grows. [GMMR: Friday nights are definitely looking up.  SOUTHLAND will be airing that day too next season. Maybe Friday will be the new…]

…and that’s about it. There’s not much on tonight in terms of new, original programming. I’m going to fully enjoy the lull.  The summer shows will be starting up soon.  I’m working on putting together a list of premiere dates, so check back soon.

Will you be watching SYTYCD with me?  Pretty please?!  Excited for UGLY BETTY or SOUTHLAND?  Is there something else in tonight’s TV that I should have highlighted?

    I will definitely be watching SYTYCD tonight. Definitely my favorite reality show, too. I can’t wait to see what amazing talent there will be; it’s funny to think that in just a few weeks, there will be dancers I’m passionate about. It can take just a single performance. The audition episodes aren’t my favorite, but hopefully we’ll mostly get a glimpse at talented individuals.

    I really hope Katie’s roommate from last year makes an appearance; I was rooting for her last year, and while I grew to appreciate Katie’s dancing, it’d be nice to see her friend make it.
