The show's first top 20 animator talks about his unique look
Cyrus Spencer, the 22-year-old animator/robotics dancer currently competing on "So You Think You Can Dance," has been a lightning rod for viewers this season. While some viewers have grumbled about his lack of dance skill, his adoring fan base continues to vote him through week after week. Tonight, fans will get a chance to speak (or not) for Cyrus again during the show's double-barreled competition/elimination episode starting at 8:00 p.m. on Fox. I had the chance to speak with Cyrus during the TCAs, and we hashed over why he doesn't read his own reviews, what he's hoping to convince the judges to say about him, and the good thing he wants to do once the show ends.
The family heads to the water park, where fun is had by most
"Here Comes Honey Boo Boo" (Wed. 10 p.m. on TLC) is, weirdly enough, becoming the kind of addictive TV that gets thoroughly discussed at both the real water cooler and the virtual one known as the good old Interwebs. This week, June "Mama" and her brood head to the water park, an outing that's a big hit with the kids and perhaps less exciting to Mama, who isn't so sure her 300-plus pounds will make it down the slide. We'd tell you what happened, but really, it's better to watch the clip below.
Fan favorites invite cameras into their lives
Kyle Massey, Carson Kressley and Sabrina Bryan were up for the job
So, the news is out. On “Good Morning America” today, the winner of the all-stars viewers' choice vote for the 13th celebrity to join the “Dancing with the Stars: All-Stars” cast is Sabrina Bryan. That meant Kyle Massey and Carson Kressley were sent packing, unless ABC chooses to lure them over for guest appearances. She will be joined by professional partner Louis Van Amstel, who returns for his ninth season.
He isn't Regis, but that might be a good thing
One designer emerges as a royal jerk during a makeover challenge
So, things are getting a little tense on "Project Runway." The girls want some of the "silk chiffonies" to go, and Dmitry is tired of losing. This week things are only going to get more miserable, but the good news is that almost all of the designers will be able to unite in their hatred of one jerk. Even better? Viewers will, too! And mind you -- I'm totally going back on my previously glowing assessment here. But let's just get to it, shall we?
The stars talk 'bike vision' as well as tackling NYC on two wheels
In "Premium Rush," Joseph Gordon-Levitt plays Wilee, a hard-charging, no-brakes (literally) bike messenger regularly dodges disaster delivering packages throughout Manhattan. His day gets considerably more dangerous, however, when he's given a mysterious envelope to deliver "premium rush" -- and finds himself a hunted man. As you might expect, the movie is a non-stop thrill ride that will either make viewers want to grab their own bikes and hit the streets -- or retreat to the relative safety of a taxi.
Alex Wong and other familiar faces return to the show
The all-stars are back! The all-stars are back! But before we got to exactly which all-stars will be joining out top ten dancers on "So You Think You Can Dance," we have an opening tribute to Gene Kelly. I get the concept; we have a smattering of costumes from his most famous roles, a dollop of his most famous steps, but it all feels a little disjointed and hard to watch to me -- and I love Gene Kelly. It's not an auspicious start to the episode, but let's hope things improve from here. Our guest judge tonight is Benjamin Millepied, who is the founder of the L.A. Dance Project. And guess what? There's going to be a performance from L.A. Dance Project tonight!
The women get a vacation and the men get stereotyped
It's a work wear challenge, but will the designers work one another over?
Well, hopefully everything is going to balance out now that the major bailing is over on "Project Runway." Remain calm, designers! Ah, we start off with the usual bitching and bonding. Raul LOVES Christopher. He's made a connection with him. A connection he hasn't had in a long time. Do I hear showmance? What is this, "The Bachelor"?
