Work of Art keeps its host, most of its judges; announces its cast

Bravo announced the cast of the second season of its awesome Work of Art, which will debut in October, and the reality competition series is keeping its host and judges, although one judge will only appear as a guest judge this season.

Jeanne Greenberg Rohatyn will be just a guest judge, while Jerry Saltz and Bill Powers will judge along with host China Chow; hopefully, they’ll do a better job at critiquing this season, correcting the series’ biggest weakness. Other guest judges Bravo listed are Adam McEwen, KAWS, and Mary Ellen Mark. Simon de Pury returns as mentor, which is also good news, because he was one of the highlights.

Besides revealing the cast, Bravo has also released a preview that highlights the same kind of drama we saw last season.

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.
