Two nights ago I finally watched So You Think You Can Dance for the first time. It was kind of great, and to a degree, I can see what people are attracted to. Some of the dancers were amazing--all of them, really, had mindblowing talents, like unreal flexibility or beautiful acrobatic skills. What made the program a lot less interesting to me, though, were the frequent and long commercial breaks, and the ridiculously indulgent comments by the show's judges. Those two things combined took up about 2/3 of the show's time, and were a definite disincentive to watching again.
