Our top moments of the week:
12. If the Shoe Fits... Award: Lady Gaga may have wept for Marko's contemporary routine during her guest-judging stint on So You Think You Can Dance, but in the end, she only has eyes for Melanie, who she loudly proclaims as her favorite — oh, and at whom she tosses her monster-sized platform shoe because that's apparently what dancers do, or at least what Gaga does. "I would hire you tomorrow to dance on my tour all around the world," Gaga says. If she does, bring a helmet, Melanie.

Another week of So You Think You Can Dance, another two dancers eliminated from the competition.

HBO executives, while admittedly not the biggest fantasy genre fans, say they love Game of Thrones. Just don't try to get them to commit to it in perpetuity.
Reporters at the network's fall TV preview session Thursday did anyway, questioning whether or not the network would stick closely to George R. R.
