Welcome back Runway fans! Tonight is more than just the start to another new season, it's a celebration of sorts. Project Runway marks it's 10th season, Season X if you will, and who could have imagined what has resulted from it's humble beginnings. We can argue about how the production quality has changed, the sinking pool of designer talent level, the questionable judging decisions. But we also have to acknowledge that the show remains as a huge influence for smart reality TV programming. The eight time Emmy nominated show may not be what it used to, but it still remains close to our hearts.

In a nice nod to the past, Project Runway's first ever guest judge Patricia Field returns along with actress Lauren Graham for a huge kickoff in Times Square. Sixteen designers throw their hats into the fray and we'll be here watching it all go down. Here's what we have planned:

  • Tbone, suzq and a cast of other characters will be hosting a live pay by play/party room beginning at 7:45 p.m. ET in preparation of the Road To The Runway special at 8:00 p.m. No Cover It Live this season, we're gpoing old school in the comments section.
  • Live play by play and party room continues at 9:00 p.m. for Episode 1. That's 2.5 hours of Project Runway - yikes!
  • After the show, tell us your thoughts on the Season X premiere in our weekly reactions thread.
All are welcome so we hope to see you tonight on BPR!
