Cat Deeley has always been one of our favorite reality show hosts, so it was no surprise when Fox decided to double their pleasure and double their fun by having the affable Brit act as master of ceremonies for not one but two summer shows: So You Think You Can Dance and the network’s new celebrity dating experiment, The Choice. Somehow, Deeley managed to find the time to stop by the InsideTV Podcast to answer our burning questions. Jessica Shaw and I grill Deeley on what other reality shows she’d like to host (see the headline for a clue), the celebrity Choice contestant she’d most want to date (again, see the headline), and how she feels about So You Think You Can Dance airing just once a week. We get to the bottom of why Cat wants to shoot her own face off (seriously), and she tells us why people should not take The Choice too seriously.
We also call in EW’s own Dan Snierson to chat about the whoring and hanging going down on Mad Men. Dan was on set of the AMC drama for the pivotal scenes where the firm landed Jaguar and Peggy asked to speak privately with Don to quit, and he tells us how much he did — and did not — know. We also discuss the future of Don and Megan as well as when we may see Peggy again as we look ahead to Mad Men’s season finale on Sunday night.

But first let us know what you think: Would you like to see Cat Deeley on America’s Next Top Model? Are you happy So You Think You Can Dance has eliminated its elimination show? And what did you make of Lane’s suicide on Mad Men? The message boards are open for business.
