Kathy Griffin’s My Life on the D List, Tommy Hilfiger’s The Cut both end tonight

Two summertime reality shows come to an end tonight.

Once thought to be competition for Project Runway, Tommy Hilfiger’s The Cut turned out to be a lame Apprentice clone. It concludes tonight at 8 p.m. ET, marking the fourth schedule move for the low-rated series. Chris, Elizabeth, and Princess remain, and are competing for the chance “to design his or her own collection under the Tommy Hilfiger label.”

Over on Bravo, Kathy Griffin ends her fun reality series, Kathy Griffin: My Life on the D List, at 10 p.m. ET. The final episode features her appearance at the Oscars, where she was relegated to a catwalk so Star Jones could roam around and feast on celebrities on the red carpet.

Even though Kathy’s series is over for now, more of Kathy intersecting with reality TV is on its way, as she’s going to host Bravo’s All-Star Reality Reunion. That train wreck airs Sept. 21 at 11 p.m. ET.
