  • Boo!!! I love PR but I don’t really like Zac Posen as a judge, Micheal Kors is the best.

    • Interesting…. I actually found him to be more in touch with current trends than Nina and Heidi and pleasantly less snarky than Michael. I’m happy to see he’ll be back for the next season.

  • I don’t think Showtime is getting into business with Tobias Funke. I think they’re getting behind him.

  • Holy crap, is David Cross gaining weight for a role?

    • No, he lost weight for season 4 of AD. Looks like he’s back to his previous weight (Todd Margaret era).

  • I actually liked Zac Posen on this last season of Project Runway. If MK doesn’t want to do the show anymore I’m glad we have someone like Zac on the panel. I’m glad the PR isn’t like some of the other competition shows; the focus is always on the contestants and not on the judges.

  • I didn’t like Zac at first on PR, but he did grow on me by the end…Michael Kors is awesome, but he and Nina are so alike in critique that it was a nice change to have new blood on the show – I think putting Michael, Zac, and Heidi together a couple shows would be fun to watch!!!
