Out of the frying pan and into the fire, I'm switching from one dance show to another, with barely a week between the "Dancing with the Stars" finale and the "So You Think You Can Dance "premiere. Audition episodes are often my least favorite, primarily due to the number of joke auditions. Let's hope those are kept to a minimum this year. Cat Deeley's introduction says, "Every summer for the past decade…" Have we really been watching this show for so long? Huh. We're officially at the point where contestants can realistically claim to have been watching the show their "whole life.

Dancing With the Stars is gone for the season, but if you still have a jones to watch people move, check out Fox's So You Think You Can Dance. The show bills itself as the search for "America's favorite dancer" and tests dancers in a variety of styles and with different partners. A ballroom dancer who makes it to the finals might be paired with a hip-hop dancer and assigned to perform a lyrical routine on any given week -- it makes for entertaining viewing. The audition process is still going on, but now the performers are all semifinalists, so the show is past the humiliating-people part.
