Similar to last season, So You Think You Can Dance's third season will follow an Idol-like broadcast schedule (little surprise given both shows air on the same network and Dance was created by American Idol executive producers Simon Fuller and Nigel Lythgoe and Lythgoe serves as one of Dance's judges). Following its May 24 premiere and a special two-hour episode on Wednesday, May 30 at 8PM ET/PT -- both of which will feature audition episodes -- So You Think You Can Dance will settle into a twice-weekly schedule in which performance shows will air on Wednesdays at 8PM ET/PT and results shows will air in the same time period on Thursdays.
So You Think You Can Dancefirst premiered as one of three new reality series that Fox launched in the summer of 2005, along with Hell's Kitchen and the short-lived The Princes Of Malibu. Despite its summer ratings success, Fox -- unlike what ABC has done with Dancing with the Stars -- has thus far decided against attempting to make So You Think You Can Dance a part of its fall or winter schedule.
