    NBC & Bravo are owned by the same parent company.
    NBC used to air Queer Eye (a Bravo show) when Queer Eye was really popular.
    I'm happy NBC is airing it. It will be great for us Canadians who don't get American Bravo (or Americans who don't get Bravo, for that matter).

    I saw this earlier, but if I'm reading it correctly, only the first two episodes are going to be shown on NBC--not the whole season.


    ENCORE PERFORMANCES OF FIRST TWO EPISODES OF EMMY NOMINATED SERIES PREMIERE MONDAY, JULY 17 AND JULY 24 AT 8:00 PM ET/PT

    PASADENA, Calif. -- July 13, 2006 -- NBC will air the first two episodes of the third season of Bravo's Emmy nominated series reality series "Project Runway" on Monday, July 17 and July 24 at 8:00 p.m. ET/PT, it was announced today at a presentation for television critics in Los Angeles. Featuring a new cast of fifteen talented fashion designers selected from thousands of hopefuls, the designers will compete for the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to show in the world-renowned Bryant Park tents during New York's Fashion Week. Critics have touted the third season premiere of the series, which aired July 12 on Bravo, as "tantalizing", "engrossing" and a "piece of new pop culture obsession with the world of fashion."

    "Project Runway" provides an opportunity for these budding designers to break into the notoriously exclusive fashion business. The wildly successful competition reality series has proven to be one of television's most talked-about shows and produced some of TV's most memorable personalities and unforgettable moments.

    Bravo President Lauren Zalaznick added: "At its core, 'Project Runway' is nothing if not great storytelling. We are thrilled that NBC has chosen to air episodes one and two and believe that their support will embolden this franchise tenfold in the weeks to come."

    The success of "Project Runway" is underscored by the performance of the program's second season finale this past March. The highly-anticipated episode was seen by an audience of over 3.4 million making it the most viewed single telecast in the 20-year history of the network.

    Too bad it's only for two episodes, but perhaps if the ratings are really good, they'll air more if it fits in with their schedule.

    It does sound as if its one of those "lets see how this translates to Network TV" things. Lets hope the ratings are high enough to have them continue airing it.

    overnight ratings for last night:

    CBS grabbed the lead at 8 p.m. with "The King of Queens," 4.8/9, and "How I Met Your Mother," 4.4/8. A "Wife Swap" repeat was second for ABC at 4.3/8. NBC's encore of Bravo's "Project Runway" earned a 2.8/5, beating a "Hell's Kitchen" rerun, 2.3/4, on FOX. "One on One" and "All of Us" put UPN slightly ahead of The WB, which went with a "7th Heaven" repeat.

    So not dismal, but not as good as I would have hoped.
