The third-season winner of "So You Think You Can Dance," whom producer and judge Nigel Lythgoe likes to refer to as "America's Favorite Dancer," will be decided at 8 p.m. EDT on Fox. Could a female dancer -- like the awe-inspiring Sabra -- possibly win this year? Not a chance! Too many teen girls are voting for this thing. If you prefer your dancing a little bit more refined, then tune in for the Mark Morris Dance Group performing "Mozart Dances" on PBS's "Live From Lincoln Center" (8 p.m. EDT, check local listings).



The Oscar-nominated documentary "Recycled Life," about the "guajiros" and their families who live in the Guatemala City garbage dump, airs at 7 p.m. EDT on Cinemax. And TV Land marks the 30th anniversary of Elvis Presley's death with a look at the enduring mysteries that surround his life, "Myths & Legends: Elvis" (10 p.m. EDT).
