Bravo: The Beginning of the End??

I have to say, after looking at Bravo's new development slate (unveiled today), I am very very concerned for their future.

First, they received the blow that Project Runway would be moving to Lifetime.

That's bad enough as it is - Runway was pretty much their flagship program (after the end of Queer Eye).

However, one can't help but noticing that their new development slate appears to suck. A lot. As if 2 editions of the abominable Real Housewives of... franchise was not enough, they're also adding The Real Housewives of New Jersey, as well as Date My Ex, which is another reality program starring Jo de la Rosa from The Real Housewives of Orange County.

Why don't they just clear everything else off of the schedule while they're at it and add The Real Housewives of Miami, Chicago, Dallas, Atlanta, etc. as well?

While new seasons of both Top Chef and Kathy Griffin are listed, those are about the only bright spots on the entire slate.

I am "watching what happens" Bravo, and I am very concerned. It's time for something a little bit creative than just spinoffs of your bad shows...

I COMPLETELY agree! I LOVE bravo. they took the reality craze and made shows that were actually worth watching, even though they were reality shows. i hope that Inside the Actor's Studio still stays! It's my favorite. And I absolutely ADORE Kathy Griffin. So let's get some more quality shows up there, right?
