Bravo Signs Up Shear Genius, Top Design, Hey B*tches!

From Top Chef to The Real Housewives of Orange County to Project Runway, reality programming has been Bravo's strong suit of late. The network just announced a winter lineup chock full of what it does best, and it's also bringing back two of its attempts to clone RunwayTop Design and Shear Genius — for another round. Some of the highlights:

  • Top Design, the seriously lackluster interior design show that I watched faithfully every week despite its mediocrity, is getting another chance — but not without a makeover of its own. Magical Elves, the folks behind Runway, are taking over the production on the show. No word on whether Todd Oldham and Jonathan Adler are returning.
  • Shear Genuis, on the other hand, doesn't seem to be getting any major changes for its second season, and that's just fine with me. Despite my initial resistance, I loved this show's over-the-top craziness, not to mention Dr. Boogie's booties.
  • Bravo has two new reality shows scheduled to start in January: Millionaire Matchmaker, a Flipping Out-style show focusing on high-end matchmaker Patti Stanger, and Make Me a Supermodel, a modeling competition hosted by Niki Taylor and Tyson Beckford. Supermodel will air Thursdays at 10, while Matchmaker will take over the Real Housewives time slot after its season finale.
  • Bravo also has a pilot in the works for Hey B*tches!, a show based on YouTube video blogger William Sledd and his "Ask a Gay Man" show. The potential show would focus on his move from Kentucky to New York City.

I thought both Top Design and Shear Genius were pretty boring, but my roommates were definitely in to Shear Genius, so it couldn't have been that bad!

Okay, I'ma make a RELEVANT comment w/o screaming at everyone. I can't wait for William Sledd's show, just b/c I remember him from the Gap at KY Oaks mall in Paducah. It's nice to see a local, hometown queer get some notoriety. Even if he is a slightly caustic windbag.

I agree, mamaseacat, Bravo has the best reality shows. Loved Shear Genius, esp. Jacqueline Smith who was a cool hostess and Sally Hershberger...all of them. I thought the judging was fair. I don't think Top Design was boring but the judging was lame. They all seemed to like the guy who won way before he won; you could tell they had a favoritism for him. That and the woman they kicked off the show for the color of the cabana, in the beach cabana challenge, because the color wasn't "Miami Beach" enough. I think her name was Elizabeth.

I agree, Top Design was boring at best. They definitely need to spice it up. I don't care for Shear Genius, but LOVE Real Housewives and think both the new shows will be at least worth a try. I guess Work Out is done forever?
