'Project Runway'

Premieres: Thursday, July 28 at 9 p.m. ET on Lifetime Why we're watching: A slight tweak to the format could give the show a little bit of new energy. The season will start with 20 designers -- the biggest field the show has ever had -- but all of them must make a case to Heidi Klum and the judges as to why they deserve to compete. Four people will be sent home right away, and the remaining 16 will be almost immediately thrown into their first challenge. -- Rick Porter, Zap2itLifetime
