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).
