Does Someone Have To Go, in which employees of troubled companies are given the opportunity to shake things up, including firing co-workers, will get a preview May 15 behind Part 1 of American Idol‘s finale before moving into its Thursday 8 PM slot May 23. Season 10 of So You Think You Can Dance kicks off May 14, taking over Fox’s Tuesday primetime where the network has been airing a comedy block this season. Displaced comedies will relocate to Mondays beginning May 20, joined by The Goodwin Games, which will air its seven-episode order. Fox has slated repeats of New Girl, Raising Hope and The Mindy Project, giving the three shows very good odds at renewal. (Networks often don’t air repeats of cancelled series over the summer.) Masterchef returns May 22 with a two-hour premiere. The network is not saying what the cooking series will be paired with it afterward. As previously announced, Fox’s new alternative animated programming block will premiere July 27, airing in the Saturday 11 PM-12:30 AM slot. Here is a rundown of Fox’s season finale and summer premiere dates: Read More »

The two stars of Ovation’s new dance competition series A Chance To Dance, Michael Nunn and Billy Trevitt, will soon appear as judges on Fox’s So You Think You Can Dance, Nunn said this morning at TCAs.

The crossover is not unexpected. At a TCA panel this morning on the new dance show, Nunn and Trevitt appeared alongside the show’s producers, the father-son team of Nigel and Simon Lythgoe (producers of American Idol and So You Think You Can Dance). It premieres Aug. 17 as one of two new original programming series for Ovation. The other is Johnny Cash: Song By Song, premiering Oct. 7.

The show follows Nunn and Trevitt, two former Royal Ballet dancers who have reinvented themselves as “The Ballet Boyz”, as they audition, select and train an American ballet company in 28 days. Nunn said that their appearance on So You Think You Can Dance will take place “in a few weeks time” and in the meantime the dancers are catching up the series online. Read More »
