So You Think You Can Dance revealed its Top 20 dancers last night, and EW ranked the contestants.

Also on TV last night was Top Chef‘s latest edition of restaurant wars. Bravo’s website has blog posts by judges Toby Young and Tom Colicchio, as well as an interview with the ousted cheftestant. But Reality Blurred wonders if the Voltaggio brothers’ constant bickering is dragging down the season.

In related news, Top Chef Masters will return for a second season next year.

A second bizarre celebrity drug bust finds Sam Jones — better known as Pete on Smallvillearrested for allegedly selling oxycodone, as Big Brother winner Adam Jasinski was earlier this week.

Finally, one of the last of the major roles in the HBO pilot A Game of Thrones has been filled. Baywatch alum Jason Momoa will play Khal Drogo. Tower of the Hand has a complete gallery of actors cast in the pilot.
