So You Think You Could Get Cancelled? Axe Hangs Over Beeb Talent Show

The BBC’s talent contest So You Think You Can Dance? could be facing the axe after poor ratings put the future of the show in jeopardy.

The show attracted only 3.6 million viewers on Saturday – compared to Britain’s Got Talent‘s ratings of over 10 million later that day. Rumour has it that the low ratings don’t warrant the huge fees paid to judges Arlene Phillips, Nigel Lythgoe, Sisco Gomez and Louise Redknapp.

The BBC however have released a statement, counteracting the claims made by ‘an insider’, reading; “”So You Think You Can Dance is only four shows into its 12-week run. No decision has yet been made on the next series.”

Still, ‘no decision’ sounds a little ominous. The show aims to find ‘Britain’s Favourite Dancer’, so at least Micheal Flatley will be able to sleep easy if the show gets cancelled.
