Project Runway 4 will officially debut in November

About a month ago, Heidi Klum revealed on her web site that Project Runway 4 would debut Wednesday, Nov. 14. But Bravo quickly had Heidi take that down and insisted that “we have not locked a date” and the date “was posted to Heidi’s Web site in error.” The network apologized for “any confusion.”

That was nice, but also unnecessary: Yesterday, Bravo confirmed that the show will return on November 14 at 10 p.m. ET. Now we’re only confused about why that was such a secret before.

The mid-November premiere date is about two to three weeks earlier than the show debuted its first two seasons, when it also aired in the winter; perhaps there will be additional episodes, or perhaps Fashion Week’s schedule is different.

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.
