***The top 10 finalists from Fox's So You Think You Can Dance will be sweatin' and writhin' in Grand Prairie on Nov. 12-13.

A second show has just been booked for Nokia Theatre, so there must be more than passing interest. Tickets are available through Ticketmaster, with prices set at $37.50, $47.50 and $54.50. The show's winning dancer will be announced Thursday (Aug. 16) on a two-hour finale airing in D-FW from 7 to 9 p.m. on Fox4.

***Monday Night Football will have Hank Williams, Jr. in the saddle for a 19th year when the second season of games on ESPN kicks off on Sept. 10th.

Only Bootsy Collins of Parliament Funkadelic is returning from last year's so-called All-Star band. The new members are Brian Setzer, Richie Sambora, Gretchen Wilson, Cindy Blackman, John Ondrasik and Drake Bell from the Nickelodeon series Drake and Josh.

***Production has started in Australia on HBO's planned 10-hour The Pacific, a long-awaited companion to the network's heralded Band of Brothers. The executive producers again are Steven Spielberg, Tom Hanks and Gary Goetzman. A cast of mostly newcomers is in place, with the premiere expected sometime in 2009.

HBO says the miniseries "tracks the intertwined odysseys" of three World War II U.S. Marines "across the vast canvas of the Pacific."
