Tonight, FOX unveils a new reality show from the creator of Big Brother called Utopia. Utopia centers around 14 people who are referred to as “Pioneers”
from all different walks of life. The contestants come together for a year long stay to form a civilization from scratch.
One of those 14 contestants is 33 year old Mike Quinn, an attorney from New York, who explains why he was willing to give up a year of his life to be on Utopia.
For the first time in its long history, the season finale of the hit series SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE will feature the talents of two tap dancers. Both 20 years of age, ZACH EVERHART and VALERIE ROCKEY each hail from less than show-biz capitols (a small town in Georgia and an Indianapolis suburb respectively) but are accomplished in several forms of dance. Their competition tonight consists of RICKEY UBEDA of Miami and JESSICA RICHENS of California. In addition to the ‘Final 4’, the top 20 will be reunited and the audience will be treated to a performance by ENRIQUE IGLESIAS.
In an interview to promote the finale, the always entertaining SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE judge MARY MURPHY talked about having two ‘tappers’ in the final four and her faith that America will get the vote right.
The Season 11 finale of SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE airs tonight on Fox.
Adam Lambert is currently on tour as the lead singer for the classic rock band Queen. They have been playing to sold out audiences all over the world with Lambert receiving rave reviews from fans and critics.

Airing tonight on Fox, the hit competition series SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE celebrates its 200th episode with a two-hour performance show featuring guest judge JASON DeRULIO. An accomplished dancer as well as a smooth vocalist, DeRULIO will perform his latest single, WIGGLE, featuring SNOOP DOG in addition to sharing the panel with series regulars MARY MURPHY and NIGEL LYTHGOE.
A former professional dancer before branching out to television production, LYTHGOE is one of the people behind such shows as SYTYCD and AMERICAN IDOL. We’ve spoken with LYTHGOE several times over the years and, during our most recent interview, he talked about the genesis of SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE and its subsequent success.
Culinary mogul Chef GORDON RAMSAY is almost as famous for his notorious temper and occasional foul mouth as he is for his twenty-some restaurants and roster of popular TV shows.
But the GORDON RAMSAY we see on HELL’S KITCHEN and KITCHEN NIGHTMARES is not necessarily the same man in his everyday life.
A father of four kids as well as the patient host of the runaway hit MASTERCHEFJUNIOR, RAMSAY is apparently a pro at masking his ‘bad boy’ persona when around the wee ones.
During our recent interview, RAMSAY was asked how his own kids respond to the occasional outburst and he was quick to explain that the kids are alright.
MASTERCHEF airs tonight on Fox MASTERCHEF JUNIOR returns to Fox later this year
After 10 years, 12 seasons and 123 episodes, celebrity chef GORDON RAMSAY is calling it quits for the popular FOX-TV reality series KITCHEN NIGHTMARES. Breaking the news to fans this morning via Twitter, RAMSAY admitted that working on the show has “been a blast but it’s time to call it a day.”
But the news doesn’t mean that the frequently foul-mouthed chef won’t continue to be a huge presence in the world of culinary arts. RAMSAY will continue to produce his other four Fox shows: HOTEL HELL, MASTERCHEF, MASTERCHEF JUNIOR and HELL’S KITCHEN all the while keeping his hand in the operation of over twenty restaurants world wide.
We sat down with CHEF RAMSAY about a year ago and he talked about his philosophy behind KITCHEN NIGHTMARES.
