Dear Bravo,

From all the recent hype, I understand that Project Runway will be shown again in my lifetime, and perhaps during this decade. As we waited patiently, you've tossed every kind of reality series our way. Our excitement reached fever pitch with Top Design, but our adrenalin soon fizzled. We then started trilling again with Shear Genius, only to feel utterly deflated as the series was rushed to its disappointing conclusion. Frankly, I can no longer recall ALL the reality series you've scheduled since the last episode of Project Runway aired. I do know that some shows, like Hey Paula and The Housewives of Orange County, were complete drivel.

I've felt nothing but relief since the last Flipping Out episode aired. In fact, from now on I am sticking to my new resolution of watching only two Bravo shows per week at the most. I'll definitely watch Top Chef and Project Runway, but as for any new shows you might toss my way: they'd better be good or I won't watch. Take Tim Gunn's Guide to Style, which started out with such promise. It seems tired and formulaic after only three episodes. This Thursday I'll miss the show. I don't care.

I've simply had enough.

Sincerely, Ms. Place
