'Project Runway' returns tonight: It's Nina vs. Snooki!
Good afternoon dee-zeye-nehs! While fans of those crazy, tanorexic kids from Jersey are GTLing in anticipation of another big premiere tonight, I’m sure we can rustle up a modicum of (infinitely more chic) excitement for the return of Project Runway. Yep, the eighth season kicks off tonight on Lifetime at 9 p.m. in its new, 90-minute form. What will those extra 30 minutes mean? More time to assess the garments as they float down the runway? Sorta, but you won’t notice a drastic change in that regard. Mostly, the extra 30 translates into even more opportunity to pimp out Brother, Hewlett-Packard, L’Oréal, and Piperlime, which takes over from Bluefly.com as the accessories wall to be dealt with thoughtfully.
Which of the two reality-show premieres are you most excited about? Are both programmed on your DVRs? I’ve never seen a single episode of Jersey Shore — even though EW continues to write my paychecks — and I don’t plan on starting, so there’s no question about which one will be providing the entertainment in my living room tonight. Besides, Snooki is no match for Nina Garcia. Uh-uh.
