Bravo's Schedule: Runway in July, Shows on Mondays, More

Bravo's Schedule: Runway in July, Shows on Mondays, More

Yesterday, we got a sense for what Lifetime has planned for Project Runway when it gets the rights to air the show in November (pending a lawsuit, of course). Today, we got a taste of what Bravo has in mind for the fifth season of Runway — plus the rest of the network's programming plans, including more Shear Genius and Top Design.

Runway's fifth season is now set to premiere on Bravo in July, presumably with the final designers showing off their collections at New York Fashion Week in September. While that seems like it will be a quick turnaround between the Bravo and Lifetime seasons, it's actually about the same amount of time the show took off between seasons two and three.

Among the other announcements:

  • Bravo has launched MoviesWithoutPity, a spinoff of TelevisionWithoutPity.
  • Flipping Out, My Life on the D List, and Shear Genius all will return this Summer.
  • Bravo will start having original programming on Monday nights for the first time.
  • Both Real Housewives series — Orange County and NYC — will return, and they'll have a third spinoff: The Real Housewives of New Jersey.
  • Speaking of Housewives, Jo De La Rosa's dating show is a go. Date My Ex, as it's known, will follow Jo looking for love — apparently with her ex, Slade, right by her side.
  • Top Design will return in the Fall with new host India Hicks — though Todd Oldham is sticking around as a mentor to the designers. All the judges from the first season will be returning, too (hooray, more questionable fashion from Kelly Wearstler!).
  • The Millionaire Matchmaker, Million Dollar Listing, and Tim Gunn's Guide to Style all will be back at some point.

Bravo also announced a couple of new shows in development. To see what they are, just


  • The Rachel Zoe Project — this show about the famed stylist will officially be airing, though no premiere date has been set.
  • Donatella — This series will focus on Donatella Arpaia, a New York restaurateur and Zagat-dubbed "hostess with the mostess" as she attempts to triple her culinary empire over a six-month period.
  • Miami Social — This South Beach-set series will follow young Miami professionals as they work hard and play harder.
  • Tabatha's Salon Takeover — Yay, Tabatha from Shear Genius is still working on her very own show! This is just a tentative title, but it basically explains the concept: Tabatha travels around the country to rescue troubled salons.

What do you think? Do any of the new shows sound like winners to you?

This made my night. Love all of those shows. Bravo has taken over my life, and for that reason I actually am upset about programs on Mondays. Too much! Other things are on! But they are bringing everything back that was amazing, and I can't wait at all for this summer. The new shows don't sound bad either (Jo and Slade!). Housewives of New Jersey sounds interesting, since I am from there. I hope they do more real people than a completely "socialite" perspective, because I don't know where they would go. Maybe up north like Saddle River? It'll probably be more of an OC type thing, where they aren't really anything amazing these people, and that'll be fine by me.

I'm considering buying The Real Housewives of OC in itunes since I missed the last season, can anyone tell me if its worth it? I think it's cool that there are 3 spinoffs of the show, see I knew I wasn't the only person addicted to that show.

My Life on the D List!!! I love Kathy. I use to LOVE project runway but this season was a total disappointment from the first episode. >.<

I love Project Runway and will watch it wherever it goes, but it just fits so well on Bravo. I think they are changing it because basic cable doesn't include Bravo in a lot of areas... therefore cutting your audience numbers.

Oh yeah, they actually did mention Top Chef 5 today, but they didn't give a date for it or say it was casting -- that's exciting!

i'm kind of excited about these shows coming back. growing up in NJ - i'm kind of interested to see where these women are going to live. it's going to be interesting - seeing as how NJ and NYC socialites are pretty similar as for Shear Genius and Flipping Out - i'm SOO excited :) i can't wait!

Donatella could be an interesting show, she seems like such a character. In other Bravo news, it hasn't been confirmed by Bravo, but Top Chef 5 is casting right now! I guess that means we'll be seeing that in the future too!

Yeah, Real housewives of NYC is pretty boring. Can't wait for Housewives of OC to return, they are more exciting to watch.
