Another SYTYCD dancer eliminated due to injury

So You Think You Can Dance lost its second dancer to injury this week, having eliminated Alex Wong last week. Ashley Galvan was automatically placed in the bottom three because she couldn’t dance, and the judges sent her home. Nigel Lythgoe told her, “both of the doctors have said to me, you need between three and five weeks rest” so “I have to let you go this week.”

That meant Billy Bell was saved elimination yet again after ending up in the bottom three again (he was joined by Jose Ruiz, who ended up there after one amazing dance and one in which he was screwed by the choreography). Anyway, seems like the only people who are enamored with Billy are the judges.

Eaten Alive

Discovery Channel’s happy family holiday special Eaten Alive aired Sunday, rewarding viewers for their two full hours of viewing by ensuring that they spent quality time in the company of others instead of wasting that time doing something else that might not have been as satisfying, such as buying things that have labels which accurately reflect their contents.
