because of increasing and record-setting ratings, Bravo extends Project Runway run.
Project Runway has continued to take off for Bravo, and the show “continues to break ratings records for the network with yet another stellar showing last night, according to a press release. More than 1.3 million viewers watched Wednesday’s episode. As a result of its increasing popularity, Bravo will air a “special” episode in two weeks. As we know all too well from Survivor, “special” equals “clip show.” Still, Bravo promises it will include “some of the amusing and sensational moments from the previous challenges that did not make it into the preceding shows.” The finale will air on Feb. 23, and has been expanded to two hours, airing from 9 to 11 p.m. ET.
