"No decision" on the return of So You Think You Can Dance next year, says BBC exec

So You Think You Can Dance

BBC One's entertainment controller Mark Linsey yesterday told Broadcast that no decision had been made regarding the future of So You Think You Can Dance on the channel. While Linsey admitted ratings had been lower than expected, he did not rule out a third series just yet.

The reality dancing competition - featuring judges including Arlene Phillips and Nigel Lythgoe and hosted by Cat Deeley - has seen figures fall dramatically from its original debut last January. Last weekend's episode saw just 3.1 million viewers at 7PM, beaten by ITV1's wacky Sing If You Can.

The series will be moved to an earlier teatime slot starting tomorrow, starting at 5:30PM.

Judge Arlene Phillips however seemed unconcerned about the fate of the show, saying recently: "I’ve been with shows which have been up and down in the ratings. I take everything with a pinch of salt.

“It doesn’t matter what the press say. Wait and see what’s going to happen with this show. There’s a lot of exciting dance coming up, and some drama!”
