    'So You Think You Can Dance'
    Premieres: Thu., May 21, 8PM (Fox)

    Premise: 'Idol' whatsit? Fox's other (and, some might argue, better) performance reality show will attempt to ease America's post-Lambert pain by bringing us not just one but two seasons of ultra-competitive dancing, the second to follow in the fall. Cat Deeley returns as host for both seasons, so let the waltzing, tango-ing, Bollywooding and hip-hopping begin. Na-na-na-na-na!

    Premieres: Thu., June 4, 9PM (USA)

    Premise: Michael Weston (Donovan) may have unraveled the mystery of who burned him at the end of last season -- we take his diving off the helicopter into the ocean as a sound rejection of the offer to bring him back into the fold. Expect more of Michael as an independent agent ... but don't think the agency is through with him yet.

    'The Next Food Network Star'
    Premieres: Sun., June 7, 9PM (Food Network)

    Premise: Boasting one of the coolest prizes in all of reality TV, season 5 gets cooking with 10 new Food Network star wannabes, all vying to win their own cooking show. Sometimes dubbed the other reality cooking competition, we prefer to think of it as 'Top Chef' Plus, since the dramatic challenges aren't just about skills in the kitchen -- they're also looking for new personalities for the network.
