Project Runway Will Move to Lifetime This Fall

Who saw this coming? Not me!

Bravo's Project Runway, the highest rated program on that network, will move to Lifetime this fall. Wowza.

The following is from Variety:

"Lifetime has its designs on "Project Runway." The hit reality skein will hop from Bravo to Lifetime effective this fall.

In a stunning network hop, "Project Runway" producer The Weinstein Co. has signed a five-year deal with Lifetime to move the show - cable's top-rated reality skein - to the femme-centric cabler. Show's sixth season will premiere on Lifetime in November.

The move has prompted Bravo owner NBC to file suit in New York Supreme Court against the Weinstein Co.

"We believe that this lawsuit is without merit," said Weinstein counsel David Boies. "While good for the market for lawyers, it is always unfortunate when parties try to win in court what they have lost in the marketplace.""

What do you think about this news? Will you still watch Runway on Lifetime?

And what does this mean for Bravo's other reality shows (Make Me a Supermodel, Top Chef and my newest obsession, Step It Up and Dance)?

So many questions!
