Hollywood, CA, August 14, 2006 -- Sometimes, "HOT" actually means, HOT.

Summer blast-furnace hits "So You Think You Can Dance" and "America's Got Talent" have audiences running a fever while FOX and NBC execs fan the flames with orders for more. Adding to the heat are graphic characterizations of both shows created and produced by brand design specialists Aerodrome Pictures. Sizzling main titles set the temperature for these summer blockbusters searing the new brands into viewers' minds.

The timing is impeccable for both networks. Pangs of loss suffered by "American Idol" fans when the curtain closed on season #5 were promptly soothed with the seamless entrance of these Idol first-cousins. Clearly, "America's Got Talent" and "So You Think You Can Dance" are comfort food for Idol addicts by the millions. Looks like summer heat will be with us for a while.
