Tim Gunn and Andrae go on a date to Red Lobster

Tonight’s that first dreaded night: A Wednesday evening without Project Runway. We’ll probably have to wait another nine months for the show to return.

But the show’s web site offers some things to keep us busy until then, or at least for the next five minutes. Besides Kara’s decoy fashion show, the site also has Tim Gunn’s blog, and he “continues to blog his way to season three,” so we’ll have some regularly updated doses of Tim.

But the site’s best feature right now is a photographic essay featuring–hold your breath–Tim and Andrae at Red Lobster. At least, they’re outside a Red Lobster, posing for pictures with Santino. The site says that “Tim and Andrae do love Red Lobster… and so does Santino.” The only thing missing is a downloadable ringtone of Santino saying, in Tim’s voice, “On-dray.”

Eaten Alive

Discovery Channel’s happy family holiday special Eaten Alive aired Sunday, rewarding viewers for their two full hours of viewing by ensuring that they spent quality time in the company of others instead of wasting that time doing something else that might not have been as satisfying, such as buying things that have labels which accurately reflect their contents.
