One thing about the Vegas week episode of So You Think You Can Dance that really surprised me: there wasn’t an ounce of drama in the whole episode. I mean that in a good way. No one went diva in front of the cameras, no one being taken away by ambulance, no one scheming to throw their dancing partners under the bus — just talented dancers working hard for the win. What a refreshing change of pace.

Summers are usually reserved for special events, reruns and reality shows, but NBC is placing their bets on a new scripted summer series called The Listener. It’s a paranormal drama about a paramedic who can hear what people are thinking.
