TV Tonight: The Project Runway Premiere


And we're off! After a long, painful wait — the Chicago Tribune compared it to going a year without chocolate — the delightful Project Runway returns tonight. The show has a great new cast, a boatload of inventive challenges, and the dynamic duo of Tim Gunn and Heidi Klum. What could be better?

Not much, judging by the first episode. While I thought the show's recent seasons have focused a bit too much on eccentric personalities rather than actual design skill (ahem, Vincent), season four seems to have restored the balance. Don't get me wrong — this season's contestants have big personalities, like Chris the flamboyant costume designer or Elisa the conceptual fashion artist. But they also have the skill to back up their eccentricities. The first challenge is usually a slapdash affair, with dresses made of drugstore candy or plain fabric; this year, the show takes it up a notch, and it's clear that some of these designers are already performing on par with the Santinos, Kara Sauns, and Jeffreys of seasons past.

I can't wait till you all see the episode so we can dish about our favorites. In the meantime, to watch the designers' intros from tonight's episode and a clip from the workroom (warning: that one contains minor spoilers about the first challenge), just

I remember 2 of the contestants from the auditions for last season's Project Runway...It's weird that they say this is the most talented group yet but 2 of this season's contestants didn't even make it last season.

Ugggghhh, I don't have cable either. I couldn't see the last season until it came out on iTunes. Maybe they'll have the new season as well.

I've already got my favorite - Elisha! She's fab. I can't wait to see what she has in store this season. I just LOVE Tim Gunn. Not really a fan of his new show, but he kills on Project Runway. Wednesday is about to be the shut in night of TV - ANTM, Gossip Girl and Project Runway!? Oh Boy!

Yippee! Just in time for maternity leave and sleepless nights with the new baby. I can guarantee that I will not miss a single episode and will watch each one at least twice. (Love the marathons!) I heard Heidi talking about it on the Today show, and it sounds like they have gone for more seasoned talent this year, so there'll be a lot of designers with lines out already. Of course, they have the rookies mixed in too. Should be interesting!

CAN NOT WAIT. I love that this a reality show where the competitors have an actual skill. And the inevitable drama is really enjoyable and often hilarious. I adore Tim Gunn, but I fear he may be facing over-exposure. (Shilling for Macy's? Really, Tim Gunn?)
