MONDAY (3/3)
  • The Royal Family (ABC, 8pm):  hosts a special that documents a year in the lives of the British royal family.  Wow - they’re letting people get to know them better?  That’s such a Diana move.
  • Terminator:  The Sarah Connor Chronicles (FOX, 8pm):  “In the two-hour finale, John and Derek are at odds over whether Cameron can be trusted.”  Meanwhile, I’m still trying to figure out whether I’ll miss the show.
  • Welcome to the Captain (CBS, 8:30):  “Marty gets Josh an interview with the president of Paramount.”  At least one of them will have a job when the show’s cancelled.
  • The New Adventures of Old Christine (CBS, 9:30):  “Matthew goes to therapy to discuss intimacy issues and learns he is too dependent on his sister.”  Did anyone else shudder when they read that sentence?

DescriptionQuestion: What dubious honor do Anchorwoman and quarterlife have in common?  Answer:  They’re both one-and-out shows.

After just one airing, NBC has already decided to pull the plug on its experimental project.  (Apparently the network wasn’t feeling quite daring anymore.)  - a project created by My So-Called Life‘s Marshall Herskovitz and Edward Zwick - was an internet hit long before it hit the boob tube this week.  The Peacock execs, thinking the series’ built-in popularity would bring insta-ratings, gave the show a special debut earlier this week with plans to have it regularly air on Sunday nights.  Unfortunately, the idea was far too ambitious for its fickle viewers.

The show’s premiere gave NBC its lowest ratings in the Tuesday 10pm slot in approximately 17 years.  While I would usually chide a network for giving up so easily, in this case, I can’t say I blame them.  If the program couldn’t succeed in SVU‘s regular time slot, where would it?

Those still interested in watching quarterlife play out can either find it on the web or on its new home - (NBC’s sister station).

Chris MarchAn innovative use of safety pins and hair, yes human hair,  just weren’t enough to land San Francisco costume designer the third and final spot in the final runway show.

The 44-year-old March was up against 31-year-old Los Angeles designer Rami Kashou in a sort of semi-final walk-off before the last official runway show, the big one at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week in New York City’s Bryant Park. Freelance fashion wunderkind and Ralph Lauren illustrator Jillian Lewis already secured their spots during the “Art to Fashion” challenge in episode 11.

Tonight’s episode began with a rundown of the final challenge and a reminder of what’s at stake if they win. The final challenge had the designers creating a 12-piece collection. They got $8000 for materials and 5 months to complete their garments. The winner of Project Runway: Season 4 gets a coveted spread in Elle magazine, $100,000, a Saturn Astra and a chance to sell their line on Bluefly.com.

Project Runway 9, ChristianApparently it pays to remind people over and over that ‘you’re fierce and kind of a big deal’. That strategy netted contestant a cool $10,000. Siriano was voted this season’s “Fan Favorite” by a landslide. The results were unveiled during tonight’s Project Runway: Season 4 reunion show.

This season of the show featured some incredibly talented and professional designers. While it didn’t have the same sexy mix of volatile characters (see Wendy Pepper in season 1 or Santino Rice in season 2), the clothes themselves were fascinating as was watching the process that these talented designers used to come up with them. Not surprisingly, some of the designers have become role models for young children and even favorites of celebrities. Kit talked about how young girls are emailing her scans of their designs to ask for advice. She says she loves being a positive influence. Lovable kook Elisa also said she loves the message she seems to be sending young girls that it is okay to be different. Sweet P, who was eliminated in the last episode, said she’s heard from celebrities like and Catherine Keener that she was their favorite on the show.

Sweet PThere was a major twist on last night’s on Bravo. The last runway show before the remaining designers compete at New York Fashion Week produced two clear finalists: and .  The third finalist is still undecided.

The judges were deadlocked over whether to go with or , so they decided to let both designers create their final collections for Fashion Week. Right before the actual runway show (which, of course, has already happened), the judges will rate Chris and Rami’s three strongest pieces to decide which designer is the official, third finalist.

Unfortunately, this episode was the last hurrah for .

Project runway finale fanatics will have to wait a few more weeks to find out which designer won the big prize. But people who saw the remaining contestants’ final runway shows on the last day of Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week in New York City say it should be well worth the wait.

The only spoiler provided in the Bryant Park tents Friday was who will serve as the season finale guest judge: .

The 1000 or so fashionistas in the crowd are none the wiser on who the finalists actually are.  Since there are still two more episodes before the two-part season finale, all five remaining designers sent their collections down the runway. Two served as decoys to throw off the crowd. When the finale airs you’ll only see the three finalists’ collections.

Guest judge Victoria Beckham, a style icon known for making bold choices and setting major trends (i.e. the asymmetrical bob), said she saw a clear winner in the pack. Of the designer Beckham considers the best she says, “everything I saw I would wear myself”.

So what were the collections like? Insiders say the designers expanded on what they were already known for during Project Runway: Season 4.

Project Runway WWE episodeWhat is the polar opposite of high fashion? I’m guessing professional wrestling after watching tonight’s episode of on Bravo.  Tonight’s challenge had the six remaining designers creating a look for the Divas of .  (That stands for World Wrestling Entertainment for the uninitiated.)

This challenge took the lingerie and figure skating challenges of seasons past to a whole new and tackier level. You don’t need a degree from Parsons to know that under the best of circumstances it is hard to make spandex, stretchy lace and rhinestones classy or wearable.

Despite the violence they inflict in the ring, the Divas of WWE seem like fairly nice gals. They requested outfits that best showcased their wrestling alter egos… like the sexy tomboy or sexy gold digger or my favorite: the classy sexpot.

DescriptionAfter three years toiling her way through the bottom of the celebrity barrel, comedienne has not quite worked her way up.  (Or so she says.)  Thankfully for fans, this means another season of her winning series,

While we can expect more appearances from Griffin’s usual assistants, there’s one thing we won’t see: more orchestrated blind dates like the one she had with Backstreet Boy .  Kathy - who is currently dating millionaire Steve Wozniak (Apple’s co-founder) - recently told that “The Woz” will be seen on the show.  No return date has yet been announced for the program.
