'SYTYCD' top 11 showcase their skills

It's good to see that the pre-competition episode of "So You Think You Can Dance," where we get to see the dancers perform in their own styles, is becoming an annual tradition. (Well, not exactly their own styles... Alexie and Melinda aren't really Broadway dancers per se, but close enough.)

With Thursday night's early look at how this season's contenders measure up - not just against each other but against the "all-stars" - we can start to see who really stands out. For example, I loved Jason Gilkeson's smoking ballroom routine, but not for Cristina's performance. Anya and Pasha have such star quality that she just didn't measure up. A lot will depend on how she performs in the other styles.

Speaking of star quality, Jose certainly has it. Tabitha and Napoleon's quite literal take on the B-boy having to prove himself versus Twitch, Comfort and Dominic really gave him a chance to shine, and he took full advantage of it. Like other untrained dancers before him, he shouldn't be underestimated.

'Most Wanted' isn't Sandy B.'s next film

If you thought the premise for “Most Wanted,” the movie Sandra Bullock has signed on to, sounded a little off for a woman who just took home an Oscar, you weren’t alone.

The Monday following Bullock's announcement at the MTV Movie Awards that she wasn’t, in fact, done with acting, EW learned that Bullock planned to return to “The Proposal” territory by teaming up with Ryan Reynolds again for the action comedy about a criminal (Bullock) and a U.S. Marshall (Reynolds) forced to go on the run after being ambushed on their way to court.

However, after people scratched their heads in wonder that Bullock would go down that road again now that she could have her pick of dramatic roles, a rep clarified what exactly "signed on to" meant.

Stanley Cup Final was most-watched game in years

The battle between the Chicago Blackhawks and the Philadelphia Flyers in game six of the Stanley Cup Finals was the most-watched NHL game in 36 years, according to NBC.

And since the Blackhawks came out of OT victorious, the game also squashed the sport’s longest running championship drought. The Chicago hockey team hadn’t won a Stanley Cup since 1961.

The win was watched by 8.28 million viewers, the most since 1974 on NBC.
