    Another Project Runway! So soon, damn! between Runway and ANTM, will be a interesting summer

  2. Gogo says:

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

    • Tess says:

      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.

  3. Zach says:

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

  4. Paul says:

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

    • Zachary says:

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

  5. MashaFan says:

    BRING BACK MICHAEL KORS !!!!!!!!!!!!

  6. Meg says:

    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.

  7. Belle says:

    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!!!
