Ox Notes: March 6, 2008

Project Runway 4 crowned a winner last night, and USA Today and People have interviews with the lucky designer. All three finalists’ collections are up for bid as well.

Bravo’s website posted its own interview with the winner of Project Runway, including some funny photos. The site also features a blog post by Tim Gunn, Michael Kors’ advice for the winner, and a short Q&A with one of the losing designers, who said Victoria Beckham judged "by shopping."

Starting in August, TLC’s fashion makeover show What Not to Wear will be paired with a show from Real Simple magazine, which aims to teach women how to simplify their lives.

VH-1 is working on a show called I Know My Kid’s a Star, in which parents and their kids compete to see if they’ve got what it takes to make it in Hollywood. The show will be hosted by Danny Bonaduce, the poster child for why pushing your kid into showbiz at a young age is a bad idea.

The chances are good that Friday Night Lights will be back.

Big Brother 9 split up its competing couples last night, meaning that the show will continue for at least eight more weeks.

TV Guide interviewed the most recent Survivor voted out of Micronesia, Mikey B, who still harbors a grudge against Tracy for letting the Fans waste three days constructing unusable shelters before revealing that she builds houses for a living.

Tuesday’s presidential primaries may have been a boon for cable news networks, but they marked the start of my official vacation from election coverage. For the rest of the month, I’m avoiding CNN and MSNBC (don’t worry, I’ll keep up with other news on the Internet.). There’s only so much gossip-mongering, conventional wisdom, and idiotic horserace coverage I can take from guys like Tim Russert and Chris Matthews.
