Fashion may not be all that exciting to the vast majority of Americans, but "Project Runway" certainly is, and tonight's fourth season (premieres 10 p.m. EST on Bravo) is sure to introduce us to a brand new lineup of sociopaths, fashion snobs, shy seamstresses and flamboyantly outspoken egomaniacs. Who will be the diva, the villain, the meddling naysayer, the self-important jerk? While warring fashionistas might get old in anyone else's hands, the producers of "Project Runway" can be trusted to combine impossible challenges, personality disorders and mean-spirited editing into a glorious spectacle of fussy creativity. Plus, there's snobby Michael Kors, poker-faced Nina Garcia, chipper hand-holder Tim Gunn, and that ever-merciless glamazon Heidi Klum. With raw ingredients like these, how could they not make it work?



The perky piemakers of "Pushing Daisies" investigate the death of a dog breeder (8 p.m. EST on ABC). Then brace yourself for a chilling look at some of your fellow countrymen on "American Skinheads" (9 p.m. EST on National Geographic). Charlie Crews is a murder suspect yet again on "Life" (10 p.m. EST on NBC), and the battle of the Canadian frienemies "Kenny vs. Spenny," which originally aired on the Game Show Network until gross-out masters Matt Stone and Trey Parker brought it to Comedy Central, begins with a late-night fart-off that is not for the faint of heart (12:30 a.m. EST Thursday).
