    I think this is CBS' poor attempt to compete with The Apprentice... too bad though, I thought Tommy Hilfiger could of done better...

    i think the premise of the show seems a lot like project runway, but what does billboard design have to do with fashion? i don't understand why, if they're looking for a new designer, they have to be able to do all the marketing, etc? why a bunch of grueling tasks instead of just designing clothes? i think it ruins a show when they go so broad.

    That kind of reminds me of ANTM too, sher in that some of their challenges seem completely pointless and unrelated to the fashion industry.

    I'm going to give this show a look though as I'm borderline fashion obsessed.
    I just hope we actually get to see some designing.

    I echo that sentiment, fluff. I'll be tuning in tonight, but as of now, I'm not sure if I'm going to love the format.

    This show does not seem like it is going to be able to come close to Project Runway...my favorite!
