You Guys, I Love Adam Shankman...

But if this So You Think You Can Dance news spells the end of Debbie Allen on the judging panel, I am NOT going to take it well. Call the fire department, honey, this is bullshit!

Did they mention a 4th judge? Maybe it might work in the US since Nigel isn't as long winded as Jean-Marc here in Canada (I know, can you believe there's someone that can prattle on longer than Nigel?)

Well, the thing is, it's actually Adam who's the prattler, god love him. And I don't know if there will be as many 2-hour behemoth episodes in the fall as in the summer. I remain guarded.

Joy about Shankman, but that aside, OH MY GOD can Jean-Marc prattle on. I frequently use the "skip 30 seconds" feature on my PVR remote to move things along. And when he starts crying? Feh. Call me jaded.

(I'm assuming they'll go with 4 like Canada.)

I think they'll go with four. And Cat is really good about reigning people in and not continuing the meaningless conversations so the show goes eight minutes over, unlike someone whose name rhymes with Schmyan Schmeacrest.

Vance said...

Sadly, Schmyan Schmeacrest is nowhere near as bad as our version (or attempt) at Cat Deeley. It doesn't help that Cat is probably one of the best reality hosts, but the Canadian version Leah Miller makes Ryan look like a genius.

I was watching some clips a few days back of SYTYCDCanada over on Tapeworthy, and damn, Vance, you ain't lying. I would never take the shining awesomeness of Cat for granted anyway, but seeing whatsername really drove it home.

It's unclear about the possibility of a fourth judge, but I have a hard time imagining that they'll do away with the concept of a rotating judge forever...

could they really go without Mia and Debbie at all? And that's not to mention Lil' C! How could we lose him?

Now, Toni Basil, I could do without.
