    Has SYTYCD been renewed? If not it dont look good.

  • Andy

    SYTYCD needs to get back to around 2 and I bet it will be renewed!

  • Martin

    Oh Sit didn’t drop in demo but sure dropped in viewers, knew it was pre-empted.

  • Michael

    I don’t watch “Oh Sit” (not planning on it) but I’m happy that it seems to be doing well for the CW this summer! They desperately need positivity.

  • Jerry

    SYTYCD has ben a personal favorite because they did pick the best dancers for top 20. Now , they seem more inclined to social experimenting.
    the pick of Cyrus for top 20 has to be a nightmare for the producers. The absoulte worst dancer in top ten in show’s history is in semi-finals. Won’t be watching this dinosaur anymore. Drop in ratings well deserved.

  • robin

    yes oh sit didn’t get adjusted down

  • Joseph A

    I see the same problem as you do with SYTYCD , they have given a street dancer a pass and grill all the other dancers , PLUS , how the heck can ever other performance be the best that the show has ever had ?
    As for Renewal , SYTYCD , should be back if not on FOX , I am sure another Network would pick up the show.

    Cyrus was a problematic top 20 pick. He is great in his specialty, but really doesn’t have the skills for the other genres. He got fluffed by the judges early on because they wanted him in the top 10 and now he may win this all. It’s sad to see better dancers go before he did. He has a great attitude and is fun, but I’m sorry he went this far.

    I do hope SYTYCD gets another season. I really do enjoy watching the dances and would miss it. Just next year keep the dancers who need fluffed out.

  • hubertwentland5

    you enjoy watching dancing people and watch the most overtalked show on tv? I mean, the judges take sooo much time. I hate it.

  • rick

    looks like SSYTYCD is losing raing faster than Xfactor will with that washout Brittany spears.

  • Phill

    WOW bb won the night over AGT didnt seem possible this season.!!

  • tv_viewer


    I don’t remember when Big Brother has ever had a higher rating than America’s Got Talent on the same night. I’m used to seeing AGT be the highest rated regular summer program.

  • Voltron

    Can someone help me with this. I’m totaling about 10 million viewers for the RNC Paul Ryan speech, plus whatever cable news shows, I can’t imagine that’s more than another 5-7 million tops. In any case I’m not seeing any evidence of even 20 million viewers for the VP is that right? As I recall didn’t Sarah Palin draw over 40 million for her speech in 2008? If so I don’t know if this is a matter of people not caring about who Paul Ryan is, or if its people’s apathetic feelings about the elecion in general, but in any case dropping from 40+ million to 15 million or so is pretty significant, right? I guess we’ll see how Obama draws next week as a better indicator of campaign interest since he drew 40+ million in 2008 for his too.

  • Voltron

    Sorry didn’t see the main story about this that was already posted …

  • Lagos

    Why don’t they just canceled Sytycd?
