"So You Think You Can Dance"
likes the new once-a-week format of the FOX summer dance show better than the two nights it had been because it loses the padding.
"I think its better because, quite often, when I was doing the results show, it felt stretched out, too slow," Deeley tells
"If we put [results] into the performance show, it adds a new layer to the show," Deeley says. "People are home watching, and this is so much more exciting. It will add this whole new layer of jeopardy and excitement."
Deeley also hosts a new dating show on FOX,
which could sway her opinion. Still that doesn't detract from the point that melding SYTYCD's competition and results into one evening allows for a tighter episode -- and for viewers to move onto summer's other offerings, like dating shows.
