Tune In: 'Project Runway'

Posted By on Wed, Jul 30, 2008 at 4:10 PM



From this week's Televisionist column in tomorrow's paper (now up on the web).

PROJECT RUNWAY
Bravo (Comcast Ch. 50)
8 p.m., Wednesday, Aug. 6.

I got tired of reality TV when it became obvious contestants were 'roiding on “Road Rules/Real World Challenge.” I've never watched “American Idol,” “Wife Swap,” “Baby Borrowers” or “Denise Richards: It's Complicated” (I get all the best moments in 30-second bursts of hilarity on “The Soup”). But I'm hopelessly and completely addicted to “Project Runway.” I even cancelled a dudes' poker night this week because it conflicted. Heidi Klum hosts and that helps. Tim Gunn, the on-air mentor, is casually hilarious. Korto Momolu, who's been featured in the Times and has been a part of just about every fashion show in Little Rock for the last several years, is a contestant and possibly a strong one, though Gunn, last week, suggested that her dress was on its way to becoming a “hot mess.” The other contestants, too, have strong, often funny and catty personalities that add to the drama. But more than anything, what sets “Project Runway” apart from the vast, vast majority of reality shows is that the contestants are actually really talented. Even if, like me, your interest in fashion doesn't stretch much beyond your T-shirt drawer, it's pretty amazing to see people, say, fashion a good-looking cocktail dress out of only blue Solo cups.
