Kathy Griffin, Queer Eye return tonight; The Janice Dickinson Modeling Agency debuts

Two cable network reality series return tonight while a third cable network debuts a brand-new series.

First, on Bravo, Kathy Griffin: My Life on the D-List returns for its second season at 9 p.m. ET. Starting at 1 p.m., however, Bravo airs a marathon of the first season. It’s followed by Queer Eye, which returns for its Las Vegas-set fourth season at 10 p.m.

Also at 10, Oxygen debuts its new series The Janice Dickinson Modeling Agency, which “follows Janice as she opens up her own modeling agency, putting her 30 years of fashion business experience to the test.” She’ll also “hand-pick the best new talent, photograph them herself and make the industry sit up and take notice,” meaning that the show sounds like more than a distant cousin of Top Model, Janice’s former reality show.
