Eating, sleeping, and getting our dance on: FOX has our three favorite activities covered with its summer 2012 schedule.
The network announced Wednesday that Season 9 of “So You Think You Can Dance” will premiere Thursday, May 24 at 8 p.m. with a two-hour premiere. The following Wednesday (May 30) the show will settle in its regular timeslot. Of course, Cat Deeley will host again, with Nigel Lythgoe and Mary Murphy sitting in as the permanent judges. Throughout the season, guest judges will rotate in, including Adam Shankman, Debbie Allen, Tyce Diorio, Lil’ C, Stacey Tookey and Jesse Tyler Ferguson.
Aside from the dance, Gordon Ramsay reigns supreme on FOX. He kicks off another season of “Hell’s Kitchen” at 8 p.m. on Tuesday, May 29. For the first time ever, “Hell’s Kitchen” will expand to two shows per week starting on Monday, June 4, when we’ll have new episodes on Mondays at 9 p.m. and Tuesdays at 8 p.m.
“MasterChef” — also from Ramsay — will begin airing Season 3 on Tuesday, May 29 at 9 p.m.
Still haven’t gotten enough Ramsay? His new series “Hotel Hell” — basically “Kitchen Nightmares” for hotels — begins airing Monday, June 4 at 8 p.m. EST. Ramsay will stay in gross hotels in San Diego, CA; Coeur D’Alene, ID; Cambridge, NY; Milford, PA; and Windsor, VT, and then help the managers fix the many problems plaguing their businesses.
