Are you already tired of Ryan Seacrest and those aspiring singers on FOX? If so, Cat Deeley and a new season of “So You Think You Can Dance” are only three months away.

On Tuesday (Feb. 24), FOX announced the premiere schedule for the compulsively watchable summer dance-off.

The fifth installment of “So You Think You Can Dance” will kick-off on Thursday, May 21 and Wednesday, May 27 with a pair of two-hour episodes focusing on the season’s dancing auditions.

It isn’t too late to appear in those auditions yourself. Judges Nigel Lythgoe and Mary Murphy, plus the rest of the “So You Think You Can Dance” production team, will be in Denver on Tuesday, March 12, Memphis on March 16 and Seattle on March 28.

Once the audition episodes are through, “So You Think You Can Dance” will settle into its regular time periods with two-hour performance episodes on Wednesdays and weekly results starting at 9 p.m. on Thursdays.

Last season’s winner was Joshua Allen, who received a $250,000 prize, plus a featured role in the Adam Shankman-produced “Step Up 3-D.”
