Bravo (finally) confirms July start, Sept. Fashion Week for Project Runway 3

As reality blurred first revealed back in April, Project Runway 3 is returning July 12. Bravo confirmed to me back then that it’d return in the fall, but only today confirmed in a press release the date and the fact that the contestants will show at Fashion Week in September.

According to that release, the “three finalists … will face off in front of an audience of movers and shakers at New York Fashion Week in September,” which will give them only a couple of months to complete their collections.

The show will start at 10 p.m. ET, but it’ll be preceded by a one-hour special hosted by Tim Gunn “that gives viewers carte blanche into the ‘Project Runway’ casting process,” Bravo said.

The Sing-Off loses its star

Ben Folds

NBC's super-fun December a capella singing competition The Sing-Off is returning, but without its star judge, Ben Folds, and only as a two-hour special. Those are really depressing changes for a series that proved itself to be a super-fun show when it returned last December.
