FOX ORDERS ADDITIONAL SEASONS OF SUMMER'S HOTTEST SERIES, "SO YOU THINK CAN DANCE" AND "HELL'S KITCHEN"

FOX has picked up third seasons of the hit summer series SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE and HELL'S KITCHEN, it was announced today by Peter Liguori, President, Fox Broadcasting Company. The two series have propelled the network to rank No. 1 for the summer among the key demo Adults 18-49.

"These shows have been integral to our summer success, and we are excited to be bringing them back next season," said Peter Liguori, President, Entertainment, Fox Broadcasting Co.

SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE, last week's No. 1 and No. 2 programs in Adults 18-49, has leaped over the competition this summer and ranks as the overall No. 1 show in the demo. Compared to its performance last summer, the Wednesday/Thursday average of SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE demonstrates impressive gains, increasing +19% among Adults 18-49, +21% among Adults 18-34, +13% among Teens and +19% in Total Viewers.

SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE has America moving to a different beat, as dancers skilled in every style from "street" to ballroom compete to be named America's favorite dancer and win amazing prizes. This season's winner will not only receive $100,000, but also a new car and a year's contract to appear in Celine Dion's "A New Day" production at The Colosseum, Caesars Palace, Las Vegas.

HELL'S KITCHEN starves off the competition on Monday nights as it ranks No. 1 in its time period among the key demos of Adults 18-49, Adults 18-34 and Teens. Compared to its debut last summer, HELL'S KITCHEN showed impressive gains, increasing +16% among Adults 18-49, +26% among Adults 18-34 and +10% in Total viewers.

The wannabe chefs of HELL'S KITCHEN are trying to withstand the heat, as fiery, world-renowned chef Gordon Ramsay puts one by one on his chopping block in his quest to discover - or create - America's next culinary star. The "steaks" are high as the contestants vie for the ultimate mouth-watering prize - the coveted title of Executive Chef of a luxurious fine-dining restaurant at the brand-new Red Rock Casino Resort and Spa in Las Vegas.

SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE was created by Simon Fuller and Nigel Lythgoe and comes from 19 Entertainment Ltd. and dick clark productions. It is executive-produced by Simon Fuller, Nigel Lythgoe and Allen Shapiro.

HELL'S KITCHEN is produced by Granada Entertainment and A. Smith & Co. Paul Jackson, Arthur Smith, Kent Weed and Layla Sabih serve as executive producers.
