Bravo holding Project Runway 4 until fall

The fourth season of Project Runway will not debut until the fourth quarter of this year, Bravo announced today. That means October at the earliest, and The Hollywood Reporter also confirms this, identifying the show’s debut date as “fall.”

The press release only says the designers will present “at New York Fashion Week,” and doesn’t specify fall or spring. For every other season, the show’s debut has been timed so it ends shortly after Fashion Week, either in the spring or fall, so that the show’s outcome isn’t spoiled by press coverage at the event.

If the show skips fall Fashion Week, I’d guess Project Runway 4 would then debut in early December, like its first and second seasons did, concluding in time for spring Fashion Week.

Surprisingly, man not eaten alive on Eaten Alive

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.
