It's technically 4/12 when I'm posting this, so I'm guessing viewers were tuned in elsewhere tonight. After the disappointing Top Chef, I was fairly pleasantly surprised with Shear Genius. It has more of the same feel as Project Runway and Top Chef and right now the contestants seem fairly interesting. Of course, I'll probably be annoyed with over half of them two weeks on, but so far, so good. The only thing that annoyed me really was the "mentor" type guy in the salon room while the contestants were working. He really does need to calm down a bit, lest he get poked with scissors. I can't really disagree with their choice for elimination, but I wanted the young blonde girl to go; she was the most dull. The treasure chest hair winning was O.K. but I liked the Marie Antoinette 'do better.
And the judge rockin' the Chrissie Hynde style really ought to get a better publicist. If she's famous for being responsible for the Meg Ryan shag, she ought to know better than admit it.
