Following in the footsteps of its successful and addictive reality shows "Project Runway" and "Top Chef," Bravo will debut a new reality show, called "Top Design," where interior designers will compete for cash to start their own firms. The show premieres on Jan. 31 and will air Wednesdays at 10 p.m.
Much like "Project Runway," the new show will have 12 contestants, who will be presented with a different challenge every week. Each episode will follow the process from materials-gathering to competition. Bravo does an excellent job with "Runway" and "Top Chef," so "Top Design" has some serious potential. I'm especially excited about the host, Todd Oldham, who I absolutely loved when he was on MTV's "House of Style." The show will also feature some great judges, including designer Jonathan Adler. But with so many interior-design shows already on the tube—from TLC's "Trading Spaces" to ABC's "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition"—I wonder if "Top Design" has missed its moment. What do you guys think?
