‘SYTYCD’ Returns after Cat Deeley Baby Birth? [NEWS]

By Shane Jordan on Jan 21, 2016 07:31 PM EST

It would seem that So You Think You Can Dance host, Cat Deeley, got a double dose of good news in the New Year. According to the latest gossip news updates, Fox has announced their plans to bring back the dance show the very same day this week that the English TV host revealed via Twitter that she had just given birth to a brand new baby boy. Interestingly, the birth of Deeley's third child coincides with a change in So You Think You Can Dance's format. When the reality series returns later this year, it's contestants will all be kids à la Project Runway: Junior and MasterChef Junior.

As the ratings continue to fall season after season, the future of So You Think You Can Dance looked shaky going into 2016, but it seems the producers have a new plan to bring the fans back to the show.

It was announced earlier this week that Fox' dance show is regearing in the New Year to a more kid oriented show, much in the same way as MasterChef Junior or Project Runway Junior.

Network chairman Dana Walden recently told Deadline that although the move is meant to increase viewership, she hopes the change won't come off as too jarring for the few faithful fans that the series left:

"We would see some changes -- how significant you perceive them to be is up to you.

"It won't fundamentally change the show, it will just give it a little bit of spin."

There has been no news as to whether or not Cat Deeley will be returning to host the show again, as the 39-year-old singer, actress and television presenter announced Tuesday that she had just given birth to her third child with husband, Irish comedian Patrick Kielty.

Although the beautiful Brit is known for guarding her private life, Deeley happily announced the birth of her brand new baby boy via Twitter (via People):

"Beyond delighted to announce the birth of our baby boy last week.

"All doing well & we couldn't be happier...3 really is the magic number!"

What do you think of Fox's plan to turn So You Think You Can Dance into another kids' show?

Would it be best if the networks left those kind of gimmicks to the cooking and clothing competitions?

Or, is it nice to see So You Think You Can Dance implement a winning strategy for the first time in a long time?

Let us hear what you think about the change in the comment field below.
