Why wasn’t So You Think You Can Dance listed for Thursday night? Are you boycotting? Did I miss something?

Jill, you haven’t missed anything, well obviously you missed something, namely a mention of SYTYCD. But, I haven’t mentioned the Thursday airing since it premiered, just think there are better viewing options on Thursday night. Although, since SYTYCD makes the cut on Wednesdays, I should probably add the Thursday airing to the Other Options for Thursdays.

And, as always, if you, or anyone, think there is a show that is worth watching on a given night, but it wasn’t mentioned in Tonight on the Tube, you can always leave a comment about it and let us know why people should watch.
