 The Opening Toss-Up story.   
FOX has renewed the Emmy Award-winning SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE for a 15th season. 

From 19 Entertainment and dick clark productions, SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE will return this summer on FOX. Emmy Award winner Nigel Lythgoe, award-winning choreographer Mary Murphy and award-winning actress, singer and dancer Vanessa Hudgens will return as resident judges on the series, hosted by Emmy Award nominee Cat Deeley. 

"I am always blown away by the sheer level of raw talent on this show," said Rob Wade, President, Alternative Entertainment and Specials, Fox Broadcasting Company. "These are real people - unknown stars in their own right. And each week, they tell compelling, emotional stories through their craft. We can't wait for Nigel, Mary, Vanessa and Cat to hit the road once again and uncover the phenomenal talent that's out there." 

"It's incredible to make it to 15 seasons, which just speaks to the impact this program has had, not only on the world of dance, but also on our loyal fans and viewers, to whom we are most grateful," added executive producer Nigel Lythgoe. 

Auditions for the 15th season kick off next month. All potential contestants should register online at and upload a video or provide a link to a video of their performance. If selected, producers will reach out to schedule the contestant for an in-person audition in one of the two audition cities: New York or Los Angeles. Dancers must be no younger than 18 or older than 30 years of age. Dancers must provide legal, valid proof of age when they register for auditions. Check and/or for full eligibility rules, official rules and additional details. 

During the audition rounds, the most talented dancers will compete in front of the judges for a coveted spot at "The Academy" callback rounds in Los Angeles. At the end of "The Academy" callback rounds, the judges will choose this season's top dancers to move on in the competition. Those that are selected to move on to the SYTYCD studio will work with world-renowned choreographers and compete LIVE each week for America's votes in a variety of styles. Contestants will be eliminated weekly until a winner is named on the season finale. 

Last September, Lex Ishimoto was named the winner during the live two-hour season finale on FOX. Ishimoto, 19, danced off with the cash prize of $250,000, the cover of Dance Spirit magazine and the title of America's Favorite Dancer. During the 2017 Summer season, SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE garnered more than 190 million video views and social engagements on leading social platforms last 

After this commercial word, Diners, Drive-Ins and Groceries? 

That's...............when Game Show Live! returns.

(fade to break)

Madison: Some members of our viewing audience will receive.....

A dozen roses from  Sure, you can try red roses, but you can also get pink petal roses, or better yet, try kaleidoscope roses. They're my favorite. Hit up today. Now back to our rose among thorns, Pierre Kelly!

Me: Thank you Madi and welcome back. Later on, we look at a roller skating team with a wardrobe snafu. 

On this epic four-part tournament, Guy Fieri brings back the best chefs from Diners Drive-Ins and Dives, who have previously competed on Guy's Grocery Games, for another chance at victory, beginning on Sunday, March 18th at 9pm ET/PT. 

In each episode of Guy's Grocery Games: DDD All-Star Tournament, four veteran chefs will put their shopping and cooking skills to the test in three rounds of the hardest games the Flavortown Market has ever seen. At home, viewers can test their supermarket smarts at, and can share their results on social media using #GroceryGames. 

On the tournament premiere, the competitors John Conley (Flagstaff, AZ), "Panini" Pete Blohme (Fairhope, AL), Louis Remilliard (Las Vegas, NV), and Jazz Singsanong (Los Angeles, CA) must race the lunch rush to deliver a signature burger in only 15 minutes. In the second round, Guy challenges their abilities to recreate top-selling dishes from their restaurants, with only an extreme budget to spend on their ingredients. Last, it is comfort food favorites, where the chefs must mash up diner classics into one finished plate. The one that wins will move on to the finale on Sunday, April 8th at 9pm ET/PT, featuring three new rounds of nail-biting aisle challenges. 

John Atkinson (Manhattan Beach, CA), Sam Auen (Des Moines, IA), Aristo Boutsikakis (Salt Lake City, UT), Peter Campbell (Minneapolis, MN), Domenica Catelli (Geyservill, CA), Crystal De Luna Bogan (Nashville, TN), Jay Hajj (Boston, MA), and Bobby Marcotte (Raymond, NH) are also put to the test in grueling aisle games. Throughout the tournament the rotating panel of judges, including Troy Johnson, Aaron May, Carl Ruiz, Aarti Sequeira, and Justin Warner will decide who will take home $10,000 each week and earn a coveted spot in the grand finale for a chance to earn an additional $20,000 and become the Triple-D, Triple-G, Triple Threat!

Gentlemen.....start your engines.

On the heels of VH1's industry leading ten consecutive quarters of YoY ratings growth (P18-49) - the best streak across broadcast and cable - and following the three-time Emmy(R) Award-winning season nine of "RuPaul's Drag Race," the fiercest competition on primetime returns with a historic 10th season.

Each supersized, 90-minute episode of "RuPaul's Drag Race" will give fans more fashion, lip-syncs and drag than ever before. The new season premieres on VH1 on Thursday, March 22, followed by the popular, Emmy(R) Award-nominated after-show "RuPaul's Drag Race: Untucked." 

"To celebrate a decade of Drag Race we've pulled out all the stops. The queens, the challenges and the shenanigans are off the mother-tucking charts," said executive producer and two-time Emmy(R) Award-winning host RuPaul. "And I'm thrilled that Untucked is back on VH1. 'Cause, henny, if you ain't watching Untucked, you're only getting half the story. Okurrr?" 

"RuPaul's Drag Race: Untucked" gives viewers an uncensored, behind-the-scenes look at each episode of the main competition. During "Untucked," cameras reveal conversations not seen on the main show as the queens anxiously wait to learn their fate and who will need to lip sync for their life to avoid the week's elimination. 

Fans craving more RuPaul can check out "RuPaul's Drag Race All Stars," which premiered to record-breaking ratings and is currently airing on Thursdays at 8:00pm ET/PT on VH1. The season follows legendary queens as they return to the mainstage to battle it out for the crown and a spot in the Drag Race Hall of Fame.

Game show The Wall, a US format created and produced by Glassman Media, SpringHill Entertainment and Universal Television Alternative Studio, will be heading to the Middle East. 

MBC has acquired the rights to broadcast local versions of the format in Arabic. The news arrives after the format has already aired in 16 territories worldwide. 

The format sees a pair of teammates attempt a quiz in order to win a life-changing cash prize. This is set behind an interactive set piece, which highlights their successes and failures. 

The Wall has already seen international success, it will now go into its second season on NBC. It's distributor, Endemol Shine, also claims that the format's Colombian launch reached a 40.2% audience share, winning over its timeslot. 

Marina Williams COO of Endemol Shine International Operations says: "We are very happy to bring The Wall to the Arabic viewers across Middle East and proud of MBC's choice, as one of the leading broadcasters in the region. "MBC and Imagic production house will deliver top quality and thrilling entertainment to the millions of viewers across the region."

Dancing on thin ice? Nah, try Iceland.

"Dancing With the Stars" is set to debut in Iceland after BBC Worldwide sold the format to Icelandic broadcaster Stod 2, it was announced Monday. The local version is set to premiere March 11.

The deal marks the first partnership between BBC Wordwide, the commercial arm of the BBC, and Stod 2. BBC Worldwide will produce the show alongside RVK Studios.
"We have had an eye on this format for quite some time and are very excited to finally bring the amazing energy, entertainment and of course glitter finally to Iceland," said Johanna Gisladottir, head of acquisitions and programming at Stod 2.
The format, broadcast as "Strictly Come Dancing" in the U.K., has now sold to 55 countries. Other recent sales of the format have included to Brazul and Belgium. In the U.K. it saw its most successful season in 2017.
BBC Worldwide is currently hosting its annual showcase event, which runs Feb. 18-21 in Liverpool.
It also announced the sale of gameshow format "You're Back in the Room" to Poland and Portugal. The format is already in production by ATM Grupa for free-to-air channel TVN in Poland, which will launch the show March 3. The Portuguese version, set to air in spring 2018, will be produced by by Shine Iberia for commercial broadcaster SIC.
The gameshow sees five strangers, who are hypnotised with specific triggers designed to interfere with the games, take on a series of seemingly simple tasks for cash prizes. The show premiered in the U.K. in 2015 with a peak audience of 5.2 million viewers. The format has already been sold in nine other markets including the U.S., French Canada, Australia, New Zealand, France, Netherlands, Slovak Republic, Slovenia and Colombia. .

Some more wall stuff, this time.....down under.

He may have been playing the away game for the past five years, but former Home And Away bad-boy Axle Whitehead is reaffirming his roots to help good-hearted Australians give back to the community.

Despite working and living in Los Angeles, the actor could not sound more at home as he sits in Sydney musing about beers, barbecues and Australia Day, prefacing his excitement for his new 'gig' hosting game show The Wall.
"The philosophy behind the show is about giving good opportunities to good people," he says. "These are people that give back to their communities, inspirational people, people who deserve a crack at this big money we're offering."
And "big money" is no understatement with the show putting a potential $12 million pay day on the table – the largest sum of money up for grabs in TV history.
"It was designed by LeBron James (the basketballer)," says Whitehead. "It's exciting, it's engaging, you see people win millions, you see people lose millions."
Sold to about 15 countries, The Wall has been a hit overseas with three, roughly 14-metre-high sets built in LA, France and Poland.
"When I got the gig, they (production) said, 'So ... you'll be going to Poland'.
"It was more cost effective to fly the contestants and production team over rather than building another ginormous set in Australia."

Here's why BBC overthought the !mpossibe.

!mpossible Celebrities is coming to primetime BBC One with a celebrity series.
It follows three successful series of the !mpossible quiz show on daytime.
Hosted by Rick Edwards and produced by Mighty Productions for BBC ONE, !mpossible Celebrities will see 18 celebrity contestants begin their !mpossible journey and compete across six-episodes to give themselves a chance of winning £10,000 for a charity of their choice.
Kate Phillips, Controller of BBC Entertainment Commissioning, said: "Viewers will find it impossible not to love this show which has had great success under Dan McGolpin in BBC Daytime. I can't wait to see the celebrities commence brainy battle as they try to avoid that impossible answer!" Lynn Sutcliffe, Mighty Productions Managing Director, added: "We are totally delighted to be bringing the excitement and humour of !mpossible to a Primetime audience - and are very much looking forward to seeing a group of famous faces take up the !mpossible challenge."
!mpossible Celebrities is the quiz with the third dimension: as well as right answers and wrong answers there are also impossible answers – they are not just wrong, they couldn't possibly be right. In each episode, the celebrities must avoid giving impossible answers as they battle it out across three rounds of !mpossible style multiple choice questions. Every right answer takes them a step closer to a shot at that jackpot – but a single !mpossible answer will knock them out for that episode.
!mpossible Celebrities will film later this year with those all star guests still to be announced.
Meanwhile, a fourth series of !mpossible for daytime has also been commissioned.

And finally, Idol goes to Canada.........well, sort of.

CTV has acquired the new season of American Idol from FremantleMedia International for a midseason premiere. The new iteration of the singing competition with host Ryan Seacrest and judges Lionel Richie, Katy Perry, and Luke Bryan will anchor CTV Two's schedule Sundays and Mondays at 8 PM ET/ 9 PM MT, beginning March 11, the same date it premieres on ABC in the U.S.
American Idol joins the previously announced pickup of three new CTV Two midseason comedies – Living Biblically (Feb. 26), Splitting Up (March 27), and Alex, Inc. (March 28).
CTV Two also announced today the addition of two more series to the network: Gotham, moving to a new Thursday at 8 PM ET / 9 PM MT time slot beginning March 1, and Masterchef Junior, returning to CTV Two Fridays at 8 PM ET / 9 PM MT with a two-hour premiere on March 2.
American Idol is produced by FremantleMedia North America and 19 Entertainment, a division of Core Media Group. FremantleMedia International distributes the series worldwide.
"American Idol is a historic franchise," said Mike Cosentino, President, Content and Programming. "We are looking forward to reintroducing the series and its star-studded judging panel to Canadians as a new anchor for CTV Two."

Time for a Gamestop Game Break. Test your knowledge of celebrity couples.

Before being married to Justin Timberlake, Jessica Biel got her acting start in what 1997 film that starred Peter Fonda? 

We'll give you a Google Play Music Interlude while you think and with the rain going in in Maple Heights, It's perfect to listen to Amy Turk play her harp. Go Amy!!!!!

Little did Jessica know, she went on to score in 7th Heaven on the WB back then....and that turned her into a star.

They say good love is hard to find.....but.....

most dates end in a disaster. Introducing.....

Relationship Disasters. A month of disastrous TV shows involving dating.
Today's relationship disaster:  More to Love

If WWE Superstar Nia Jax were to find true love, then she's 9 years too late. The program was hosted by supermodel Emme. Yes, Emme.

The series followed Luke Conley of Santa Maria, California,[2] a single plus size man (age: 26, height: 6' 3", weight: 330 lbs)[3] trying to find love among twenty plus sizewomen. The first episode featured Luke giving a promise ring to each of the 20 ladies, with the promise he would not judge them by their size.

It came down to wither Tail Giat or Malissa A. and Tali Giat was the winner. While Fox has released no info on the couple after the finale, on October 24, 2009 Tali posted on her Facebook page that she and Luke were no longer together.[4] Luke also confirmed his and Tali's breakup on his personal webpage.

Guess dating plus size ladies is nothing but a......

That's it for this week. Today's consolation prize is a cabin on the Love Submarine. If you thought the Love Boat was campy, this new form of transportation is about to get.....campier. Where's Charo?
