More on So You Think You Can Dance Canada
For those of you who asked about a petition to save So You Think You Can Dance Canada or at least a place where you could express your displeasure at the cancellation, check out this Facebook page.
Also, Mary Murphy tweeted that she will be expressing her thoughts on the cancellation on Wednesday at marymurphy.tv, which is her official website.
And I just wanted to add a comment on something that was in the Star's story (which I contributed to). A source told my colleague, Raju Mudhar, that the ratings for the finale were down around 30 per cent. Well, yeah, duh, the finale was the same night as the 10th anniversary of 9/11 when all kinds of people were watching shows about the terrorist attacks. Of course the ratings were down.
It also wasn't exactly convenient that CTV scheduled SYTYCDC this year to overlap with the U.S. version of the show. That certainly didn't help ratings, but I would also say ratings for Dance Canada were still extremely healthy for a Canadian show in the dead zone of summer. But hey, what do I know? I'm just a blogger.
Feel free to contribute more of your comments about the cancellation. I'll keep you posted if I hear of any new developments.
