Tim Gunn to Make It Work For "Project Runway" Season Four, After All

Like many fans of Bravo's catwalks-and-catfights reality series Project Runway, I could not imagine the show without erudite and dapper mentor Tim Gunn along for the ride. After all, while I love Heidi, Nina, and Michael, Tim is really the heart and soul of the sartorial series.

So I was overjoyed to learn today that Tim has signed on to return for the fourth season of Project Runway, along with Heidi Klum, Nina Garcia, and Michael Kors as the troika of over-critical judges who will destroy the dreams of more than a few would-be designers while casting one into the spotlight.

Harvey Weinstein made the announcement earlier today in a joint statement representing The Weinstein Company, Miramax, and Bravo.

"I am thrilled to make it official that I will be back in the workroom for season four of Project Runway," said Gunn in a statement. "We're in the midst of casting the designers now and I can already see that it will be another amazing season."

It's still under debate just when Runway-crazed fans will get to see Season Four, but insiders point to a June production start... and then there is the not-so-small matter of New York Fashion Week in September. Could Bravo still manage to get the series on the air for a Summer launch? Stay tuned.

Thank God! I can't imagine PR without Tim. Heidi's great but it's all about Tim for me. No Tim, no Project Runway.

Yay! Very good news. Project Runway definitely wouldn't be the same without him!

As the show is currently casting, they certainly could pull off shooting the show this summer, with the aim of getting the final designers to show at NY Fashion Week.

No Project Runway would be preferable to Project Runway WITHOUT Gunn.

Katie Lee Packs Her Knives: Breaking News from Bravo's "Top Chef"

The android has left the building. Or the test kitchen, anyway. Top Chef 's robotic host Katie Lee Joel, the veritable "Uptown Girl" herself (pictured at left), will NOT be sticking around for a second course of Bravo's hit culinary competition. According to a well-placed insider, Joel will "not be returning" to the show. No reason for her departure was cited. Unfortunately, the perfect replacement for Joel, Top Chef judge and professional chef Tom Colicchio, will not be taking over as the reality series' host (damn!). Instead, the show's producers are currently scouring to find a replacement for Joel. Top Chef 's second season was announced by Bravo last month, but no return date has been set for the series' ten-episode sophomore season. Stay tuned as this story develops. UPDATE (6/27): Bravo has now confirmed the above story .

BuzzFeed: Meet The TV Successor To "Serial"

HBO's stranger-than-fiction true crime documentary The Jinx   — about real estate heir Robert Durst — brings the chills and thrills missing since Serial   wrapped up its first season. Serial   obsessives: HBO's latest documentary series is exactly what you've been waiting for.   The Jinx: The Life and Deaths of Robert Durst , like Sarah Koenig's beloved podcast, sifts through old documents, finds new leads from fresh interviews, and seeks to determine just what happened on a fateful day in which the most foul murder was committed. And, also like  Serial  before it,  The Jinx may also hold no ultimate answer to innocence or guilt. But that seems almost beside the point; such investigations often remain murky and unclear, and guilt is not so easy a thing to be judged. Instead, this upcoming six-part tantalizing murder mystery, from director Andrew Jarecki ( Capturing the Friedmans ), is a gripping true crime story that unfolds with all of the speed of a page-turner; it

BuzzFeed: "The Good Wife Is The Best Show On Television Right Now"

The CBS legal drama, now in its sixth season, continually shakes up its narrative foundations and proves itself fearless in the process. Spoilers ahead, if you’re not up to date on the show. At BuzzFeed, you can read my latest feature, " The Good Wife Is The Best Show On Television Right Now," in which I praise CBS' The Good Wife and, well, hail it as the best show currently on television. (Yes, you read that right.) There is no need to be delicate here: If you’re not watching The Good Wife, you are missing out on the best show on television. I won’t qualify that statement in the least — I’m not talking about the best show currently airing on broadcast television or outside of cable or on premium or however you want to sandbox this remarkable show. No, the legal drama is the best thing currently airing on any channel on television. That The Good Wife is this perfect in its sixth season is reason to truly celebrate. Few shows embrace complexity and risk-taking in t
