"So You Think You Can Dance" is the best reality competition show ever. Sure, I'm touted as MTV News' "American Idol" expert, and sure, I get paid to do "Idol in 60 Seconds" recaps every season, but deep down inside, I just wanna "Dance."
I'm not going to rehash the reasons why I think "SYTYCD" is a superior show to "AI" — especially since my old colleague Lindsey Thomas did it perfectly last summer. Instead, I'm here to beg all of you to start watching and make this season the highest rated yet. I have no stock in the show. Hell, it's on a rival network. I just think the world will be a better place if, instead of gossiping about Miley and Jason's breakup, we discussed the finer points of Napoleon and Tabitha's latest lyrical hip-hop routine.
Before you start getting all, "But I don't know anything about dance," or "Who cares about dancers?" let me remind you all that my dance experience is limited to growing up watching "The Grind" and creating the last 60 seconds of this video. Plus, do you know anything about designing clothes or grooming dogs? Then why are you watching "Project Runway" and "Groomer Has It"? (I suppose nobody but me is watching "Groomer Has It," but still). In any case, I understand that a show like this might be overwhelming to newbies.
