PROJECT RUNWAY7 p.m. Thursday, March 20Lifetime
The dust has settled. Lifetime has emerged victorious from the protracted network battle over the “Project Runway” franchise, and on Thursday, it's flaunting its new prize like only it knows how. Surely, you've been there, or at least know some one who has. One minute you're lingering on one provocatively titled Tori Spelling movie — “Mother, May I Sleep with Danger” maybe — and suddenly you've lost an afternoon gobbling up “Gospel of Deceit” and “My Stepson, My Lover,” too. Thursday, the Estrogen Channel presents three and a half hours of “Project Runway”-related programming. Here's betting most fans don't even bat an eye at that kind of commitment. First up, from 7 p.m. until 9 p.m., the main event, as far as Central Arkansas is concerned: Mabelvale's Korto Momolu
returns to the runway to battle against seven other former contestants for a $100,000 prize. Nicole Kidman is serving as a special guest judge. The show's already taped, and in Sunday's Democrat-Gazette, Korto said, “Eventually, it's the last man who's standing that wins — not the person they claim is, quote-unquote, the winner,” which probably means she didn't win, but may mean she destroys everyone in some sort of fashion battle royale. The premiere of season six follows at 9 p.m., with a new companion series about the models of the show finishing out the block at 9:30 p.m.
