This rumour has been floated around quite a bit now, but it seems news is slowly firming that a reboot of Ten’s once-popular Australian edition of So You Think You Can Dance Australia is set to return on a yet-to-be-determined network.

What’s more is that news of Sarah Murdoch taking over hosting roles from Natalie Bassingthwaighte are also resurfacing after her name was floated late last year. Murdoch, who is currently married to Lachlan Murdoch, and hosted Australia’s Next Top Model from 2009 to 2011, hinted to The Daily Telegraph that she was ‘in talks’ for a television project in the ‘second half of 2012′.

If this news is true, it will be the first time the show has aired on television since mid-2010 when Robbie Kmetoni won the third season. Since then, it was put on hold.

Former judges included Bonnie Lythgoe and Matt Lee. Star of Channel 9′s Celebrity Apprentice Australia 2011, Jason Coleman rounded out that panel, and after rumours that show executive producer Nigel Lythgoe was keep to give the format to ‘another network’, rumours recently tipped Nine to resurrect the show.

Currently, no official word has surfaced on whether the show is coming back, what channel it will air on and who will host it.

But stay tuned, because a return is looking more and more likely.

Rumours are surfacing that The future of So You Think You Can Dance Australia is in question.

Usually part of Ten’s reality line up airing from February to April, the 2010 season was the show’s worst performing to date, leaving Ten considering whether to renew the show or not for 2011.

After poor figures in 2009, Australian Idol was “rested” for 2010 with one of the reasons being quoted as there being a timing clash in 2010 with the Commonwealth Games in October. Freemantle Media who product Idol are looking at the possibility of a revamped Idol in 2011, but nothing has been confirmed.

The Biggest Loser – also seen on Ten February to April – has also been subject to speculation in relation to its future. In 2010, the show had its worst figures to date. In 2011, the focus will be on families with families of three or more invited to apply for the 2011 season – applications are still open, suggesting the show should go ahead for 2011.

Then there is the speculation that Ten were looking into a reality show based on photographers, and loosely based on Australia’s Next Top Model. According to an interview by TV Tonight, there will be no such show.

With Masterchef doing so well for Ten, it’s no secret that the network are looking for ideas to replicate that sort of success. Without Australian Idol – usually seen from August to November – Ten does not have a reality competition show for the last few months of the ratings year.

Masterchef Australia has claimed the top ratings spot in a competitive Wednesday night line-up.

The Ten reality show drew just over 1.6 million for their third show of the second series, with Seven’s war drama The Pacific pulling nearly 1.5 million.

However Nine’s headline show Hey Hey It’s Saturday slipped to just over 1.2 million and failed to take top spot in home state Melbourne over The Pacific.

Just over a million viewers watched Robbie Kmetoni take out the finale of So You Think You Can Dance Australia on Ten.
