March has been good to us here at Wetpaint. The snow has melted, the days are getting longer, and the ol' mercury is on the rise. Ah, we can almost smell freshly mowed grass mixed with apple blossoms... OK, maybe we're getting ahead of ourselves, but there's no denying that summer is right around the corner. And for television junkies like us, that can mean only one thing (er, two things): The return of So You Think You Can Dance and True Blood. And now, Wetpaint is bringing you two brand-spankin' new sites for these sizzlin' shows!

Can you think of a better way to spend those lazy days of summer? After crying your eyes out watching a Travis Wall contemporary routine, feast your eyes on a shirtless Eric Northman. After gettin' your swag on with some fresh Nappytabs choreo, gaze longingly at Alcide's biceps. We could keep going, but you get the idea.

What are you waiting for? Take a ride on the Hot Tamale Train and sink your teeth into these hot headlines:

SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE

Which All-Star Should Come Back in Season 8?
We're not gonna lie — when Nigel Lythgoe announced the addition of the All-Stars last season, we were a little skeptical. Scratch that; we were freaking out! Wouldn't coupling contestants up with seasoned pros make the show feel a little — gasp! — DWTS-ish?

So You Think You Can Dance Goes Gleek
You probably already know that Glee star Heather Morris came this close to being a finalist on Season 2 of So You Think You Can Dance. Although Heather was eliminated at the eleventh hour, her luck definitely turned around when she was cast as Gleek favorite, Brittany S. Pierce. Apparently, much like her airheaded character, Heather's quite the trendsetter in real life, too.

Return of the All-Stars, Top 20, and Mary Murphy
Now that we have a time and date for the big premiere — 8/7c on Thursday, May 26! — we are itching with anticipation for the start of So You Think You Can Dance. The auditions are over, the judges have deliberated, and the Vegas tickets have been awarded, but we still have two-plus months to go until Cat Deeley kicks off premiere night! Ugh.

Mary Murphy's Scream Down to a Squeak?
Mary Murphy talks to OnTheRedCarpet.com about coming back for Season 8 of So You Think You Can Dance, gives a quick update on her health, and even Nigel pops in for a couple of seconds!
