They Shoot Viewers, Don't They

I'm sure you've noticed that Fox is continuing to air expanded, two-hour editions of "So You Think You Can Dance" on Wednesdays. And I'm sure you've already heard about the O-Hurley/Monaco dance-off. I feel like we're in the middle of a dance marathon that might never end.

Many shows have ep titles based on the 1935 novel & 1969 movie, "They Shoot Horses, Don't They." Did you ever wonder what else TV writers wanted to shoot? Here's a short list:
