With a ratings slide during the past two years, Fox’s "So You Think You Can Dance" is set for a shake-up, the Hollywood Reporter says.
Executive producer Nigel Lythgoe said he’s planning to return dancers from previous series who will be paired with 2010 contestants to compete for a $250,000 prize and a magazine cover feature.
"The whole reason for doing it is to make the show more exciting," Lythgoe said on a conference call with reporters. "Some of these brilliant dancers have just disappeared off the face of the earth."
The new season will air on Fox starting May 27. Viewers in 2009 had slid to 7.1 million from 9.7 million in 2008.
