Ovation said it has bought exclusive off-network rights to Fox's So You Think You Can Dance from Twentieth Television and will lead off with season 6 episodes this August.

The independently owned arts-based network said it acquired the rights to seasons 6-8 of the dance competition series and plans to air episodes in a three-hour block on weekends, SVP of programming Kris Slava said. The network said in a release it would strip the show from Friday to Monday.
