I liked watching some of the auditions but now I'm just watching because DD8 and DS11 like to watch kids dance. It's so staged and I hate the drama. I don't know why they do it to these kids. The girl that got kicked off tonight was so upset she couldn't even stay on stage. Unnecessary stress put on young kids. Ugh.

The 4th place 12 year old dances there. It's not rocket science


Well, since we're talking rocket science, if you look at the results, there are four kids in the teen division that placed 4th for solos at Nexstar across the levels, only one of them being from the studio you mentioned. So technically, my DD could be any of the four. 

Let's agree to move on and discuss the topic at hand.

We had last week's Top 10 show on PVR, and PVR'd last night's show while watching JoJo give up on the wrong guy, after which we watched both SYTYCD recordings with my finger firmly on the fast forward button.

What I learned:  I need to eat my thoughts about Maddie.  I think she's actually adding something to the show and doing a fairly decent job.  Certainly better contribution than what Jason makes.  

I still think the show is freakish and that this should be it's last year.

btw, anyone catch what Nigel said?  That the Fox executives had basically forced him to do this format?

I read that it was renewed for another season. 

If that is true, I hope it goes back to the original format.

It reminds me a super short comp. They do a routine, they get the same "point your toe, straighten your legs" critiques the judges give our kids and someone cries because they didn't make the overalls. I can see enough of that during the comp season, I don't need to watch it every Monday [wink] However, my girls are infatuated with the show so they will be tuning in.

I would be surprised if it were renewed.  The ratings are down fairly significantly from last season (which were down fairly significantly from the season before that).

I know the national rating in the all important 18-49 demographic is .82, down from last year's rating of .94.  That's a 12% drop.  The season average view-ship is 3.2 million an episode.

I bet viewship drops off even more after the "Olympics Break"!  It seem like America is not too fond of the new format either.  AI lost enough steam to finally be cancelled this year so it would not surprise me in the slightest if the same happened to SYTYCD.

One reason I liked the regular show was because it was wonderful seeing these dancers who came from obscurity.  I loved following their stories and their journeys on the show.  It was neat seeing dancers specializing in different genres learning different genres of dance.  It seems this year that the kids are doing their own genre every week plus a solo and then perhaps a different style.  I'm not enjoying it as much and also not liking that it seems that many of the dancers were pre-selected without even having to audition but then did a "fake" audition for the show.  Granted that didn't happen with all of them but I know for a fact it happened with some.  It just seems that all the show is doing is giving even more publicity and fame to some dancers that were already well known in the competition dance world.

I am thoroughly enjoying the show!  Seeing the kids dance makes me so, so happy and I'm so thankful for the national platform for my daughter's chosen sport!  To me, it's a celebration of what my DD does every day.  I don't like the end when the kids are voted off, but I appreciate how short and sweet they are making the eliminations, cut that drama down producers!  We are HUGE Tate fans in my household, we know her from NUVO, so we all scream with excitement when she is on, and then burn the lines up voting for her.  I'm sorry the ratings are low, SYTYCD is my favorite TV show of all time.  I've watched since Season 1 and having young people on the show is icing on my cake.  Pure joy!  I like the six finalists and don't want any of them to be eliminated.  My DD tried out for this season and didn't make it, maybe next year?
