Pop Attention Span

Trying to keep up with the zeitgeist

Fast-moving stories

So I saw the news that NBC was suing to keep Project Runway on Bravo before hearing that Lifetime had snatched up the series. I hate it when I learn about a story through the follow-up.

Meanwhile, the Project Runway moves to Lifetime thing sounds like a late April Fools joke. I know Lifetime is trying to get hipper but stealing another network’s hit show makes you seem desperate, not innovative. (Now stealing another network’s struggling-but-critically-acclaimed show, that makes you seem visionary.) It’s even worse when the show you’re poaching is so heavily tied to the other network’s brand identity.
