Fox’s summer staple So You Think You Can Dance, which was renewed for a ninth season in October, will undergo a format change, scaling down from two shows a week to one. “Fox have canceled the results show so I will have to change the format of SYTYCD,” the show’s co-creator/executive producer/judge Nigel Lythgoe tweeted today. “At least we have another season at the end of May.” The move comes days before SYTYCD‘s first Season 9 auditions, which will be held next week in Atlanta. “I’m certainly not mad at Fox — they have supported SYTYCD for 9 seasons,” Lythgoe wrote. “With the help of (Fox’s head of alternative) Mike Darnell I think we have some great new ideas.” SYTYCD, whose most recent eight season was down in the ratings from Season 7, will not be the first competition show to air once a week. Most recently, NBC’s The Voice started off that way before expanding to two nights following its early success.
