With the latest season of the new season of So You Think You Can Dance (SYTYCD) kicking off in America there are rumours now circulating that Network Ten might be considering renewing the Australian version of the show. I am hoping this turns out to be true.
TV Tonight is saying there are rumours that it might be back on TEN in 2014. This is would be a good decision by TEN as there are no other dance shows on free to air and it was a popular show. One of the reasons it did not rate so well in its last season was it kept on getting shifted around on the programming schedule.
Even though TEN flirted and lost with the disasterous Everybody Dance Now the issue was not the calibre of dancing it was the format and the cast. US judges Kelly Rowland and Jason DeRulo did not manage to engage the audience and looked like they were there just to collect the pay cheque.
The format of So You Think You Can Dance allows the viewer to get to know the dancers their stories, their styles and personalities which means we are able make an emotional connection with them and cheer for them week to week.
Have a judging panel of two staple judges like Matt Lee and Kelly Abbey and rotate a different judge through weekly. Give sassy Natalie Goronzi the hosting gig and add in some great routines and people will watch.
Also it is rumoured ELEVEN will start screening the US version of SYTYCD soon.
TV Tonight also states that TEN is considering theIrish series The Hit where emerging songwriters compete for recording artists to choose their song to record. Brian McFadden is in that show, so if there is an Australian version I hope TEN won’t sign him up.
So You Think You Can Dance Australia hopefully on TEN in 2014.

No wonder people want to get on So You Think You Can Dance judge Mary Murphy’s hot tamale train as her former manager is alleging that she is a “cocaine fueled nymphomaniac”.
Radar Online is reporting her former manager, Michael Sanchez, who represented her for four years, is suing her for breach of written and oral contract for more than $1 million in unpaid commissions and damages.
The dancer is more like a train wreck who showed “increasingly self-absorbed, childish and demanding behavior.”
Among the shocking allegations in the lawsuit, Michael claims that she participated in alleged prescription and illegal drug abuse that caused her to miss or underperform in meetings and appearances.
I would have thought dealing with those things would have be part and parcel of any managers job.
What is sensational is that he also alleges that when she was out here for her guest appearance for So You Think You Can Dance he busted her in a Sydney hotel room with a producer of the show and cocaine on the bed side table. Does Mary Murphy stipulate a rider on her rider?
Other allegations are:
He cites specific instances in 2009 when he claims security broke into Mary’s apartment when she was “unresponsive,” following a “cocaine-fueled evening of partying.”
He describes her “questionable men” as SYTYCD and Chelsea Lately crew members, a drug dealer, and a married U.S. Naval officer Mary met online, according to the lawsuit.
Michael also alleges Mary demanded that producers give her alcohol “disguised in a Coke cup” to drink during studio tapings and that she “secretly” coached and worked with SYTYCD contestants behind-the-scenes — as a result violating Fox TV rules and U.S. game show fixing laws, the court documents state.
The former manager credits himself with giving Murphy “guidance and advice” that led to her first full season contract as a judge on the hit dance show in 2007 and a lucrative, three-year renewal of the SYTYCD contract as a permanent judge the following year.
He also claims he helped her maintain her status on the Emmy Award-winning show despite “erratic and demanding behavior,” according to the lawsuit.
The Hollywood manager alleges he not only provided Murphy with his public relations expertise, but Murphy owes her on-camera persona in-part to him, having written many of the judge’s “one liners,” rehearsing her scripted reactions and organizing her styling needs — all without additional payment.
Mary Murphy is obviously responding with a lawsuit of her own.
Mary’s attorney Leah Saffian denies Michael’s claims calling them “libelous remarks and allegations,” and has claimed in a separate lawsuit brought against Michael that the dispute arises from his personal bankruptcy and his failure to pay Mary money owed to her under a contract.
The winner in all this has to be So You Think You Can Dance with the new season starting in the US this week.
