Project Runway starts July 16

Project RunwayUnless that little ad I saw during Top Chef was a total lie, Project Runway's fifth season will be starting Wednesday, July 16 at 9:00 (new time). I definitely was not expecting the new round to start this early. It feels like the painful fourth season ended only three months ago because, umm, it did. It worries me when competition shows seem a little too eager to pick the next hottest thing. Let the old hottest thing bask in the limelight for a little while! I really hope PR doesn't turn into a non-stop barrage of half-talent the way that American Idol has, popping out new seasons like they're Danielle Steel novels and not allowing the talent pool to grow.

Also, remember that this is the last season that PR will be on Bravo. All future seasons will be on Lifetime. Ironically enough, the fact that it's on a women's TV network makes me want to watch the show less.

I've already expressed my worry about the state of this show, so I'll leave that be. My heart can handle only so much bitterness at a time. The show hasn't inspired very much positive excitement in me since Season Two, and this upcoming season is going to be the deciding factor in whether or not I have the strength to follow the move to Lifetime. Here's to hoping there's something worth watching.

I guess I am a little bias being that I am a woman, but I will follow this show for however long it is on tv and whatever station picks it up. I love this show.
