So You Think You Can Dance’s Hot Tamale Train will ride on for another season. The hit Fox dancing competition was renewed for Season 11, Fox confirms.
During last night’s Season 10 finale, Nigel Lythgoe spilled the beans, and we waited anxiously to make sure the rumors were true. Thankfully, they were, and Nigel and Mary Murphy will be back in summer 2014!
While the finale ratings hit a series low (down 13 percent from Season 9’s ender), it saw a 2 percent rise in overall viewership to 4.3 million, according to Deadline. Plus, considering the finale was interrupted by President Obama’s 14-minute Syria speech at 9 p.m. ET, the 1.4/4 rating isn’t too bad.
As for next season, there isn’t any news yet, but it’s still early. We’ll let winners Amy Yakima and Du-Shaunt "Fik-Shun" Stegall enjoy their exciting new titles and start counting down the days until the next season begins!
Plus, with Paula Abdul finally appearing this season (twice!), we can expect a lot of exciting guest judges come Season 11.
