So You Think You Can Dance: Season 11 Ratings

so you think you can dance fox tv show ratingsLast season, because of declining ratings, FOX continued airing So You Think You Can Dance just once a week but the ratings continued to fall. Will they continue to decline or start to climb? Could it be cancelled this time or will it be renewed for a 12th season?

Hosted by Cat Deeley, So You Think You Can Dance is a competition that pits dancers of various backgrounds against one another to become “America’s Favorite Dancer.” Nigel Lythgoe and Mary Murphy have returned as the permanent judges, often sharing the table with guests like Adam Shankman, Mia Michaels, Jenna Dewan-Tatum, Wayne Brady, Jenna Elfman, and Christina Applegate.

The higher a show’s ratings (particularly the 18-49 demo), the better its chances for survival. This chart will be updated as new ratings data becomes available — typically the following morning, around 11:30am EST/8:30am PST. Refresh to see the latest.

The final nationals are typically released within 24 hours of the programming or, in the case of weekends and holidays, a couple days later.

Please renew. It’s a chance for choreographers and dancer to show what they do! It is a joy to watch. It’s my “football” season, the only thing I watch on TV

Yes…renew…with the negative view of Dance Moms this gives dace a chance. It is uplifting and showcases dancer’s talents.

Also: Your ratings report is a bit skewed. After the first session, viewers realized that there was a new format and shortened time frame. Once viewers realized that many may have stopped watching.

ALso…shortened time gives less time for viewers to get to know the dancers and really feel committed to them and the show. f

I’ve been watching this show for about 8 years. I love this show above all others. I enjoy many scripted dramas, but for realism and inspiration this is THE show to watch. The more competent and honest the judges the better. I thought last year had a great trio of judges, though I was not so keen on what the producers did with them. PLEASE bring this show back!

the show must be renewed without any second thoughts…just watching the hard work and determination of the dancers is mind boggling let alone the awesome choreography……but hers the only let down of late the show has leaned way too much towards contemporary routines which are always so sad and depressing not even a single happy fun choreography so far from contemporary choreographers whereas other styles has taken a complete backseat and in season 11 ballroom has been completely neglected and also the choreographers has been insulted too… aka dmitry and jean-marc….. they know their stuff and hence choreographed those routines…. so what i need is dancers who knows how to have fun rather than teenagers who so desperately try to get people to like them with fake personality showcase aka rudy abreu……and stop highlighting one dancer while the rest becomes just the word others…. all dancers deserve equal footing but of late it is not so …… hence i think nigel lythgoe needs to rethink the whole show and bring back the clean beauty of the show during its initial season – season 1,2,3,4,5……. it was a downhill from season 6…… but i still want the show to get renewed for 100 more seasons.

Please renew. The summer won’t be the same without SYTYCD…the energy, talent, and art of dance can be enjoyed and appreciated by all. #Cultureisgood

Please please bring this show back for another season!! My favorite to watch in the summer!


Carol September 11, 2014 at 3:06 pm

I look forward to So You Think You Can Dance every season (been watching from day one) and I can’t imagine the summer without this show – please please please renew!

This show is one of the only reasons I don’t cancel my cable. PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE renew – we need more of this kind of showcase for young talent in this country! These young people (god I sound old) deserve this chance to shine! And it’s so, so, so fun to watch!!

Sytycd is one of the best shows on television and promotes the art of dance to people who would other wise have no exposure. It brings talented choreographers and artists together to share the beautiful art that is dance to mainstream media. This show is critically important

This show is not only the best entertainment on television, it is also the most important. Sit coms and cop drama don’t do what SYTYCD does. It elevates society culturally, it showcases an art form which I had never been exposed to. Each week it makes beauty and grandeur which affects the soul of all who watch, create and dance. A generation of dancers were inspired by this show. Their art may not have existed were it not for this show. It is nothing short of magic. Magic the whole family can enjoy and the whole country needs. We need more art in the world. Thank you Fox for giving it to us. Please, please, please keep on running this gem!

I’ve watched since season 1 and it’s still the best show on tv, full stop.


Emily September 8, 2014 at 12:43 pm

PLEAE RENEW!!! Somebody, please!

This is one of my all-time favorite shows. For those of us who don’t have cable or satellite TV, we have to watch live or online. With my schedule, that usually means online, but FOX is the worst with the 30-day lock. Watching a show like this 30 days later is …anticlimactic. BUT I STILL DO IT! I watch the clips so I can vote. Then I watch the episodes when they’re available.

* * * This is a beautiful show and a great artistic arena for people who love dance. * * *
