Up for elimination tonight is a comic, a dog and two dancers. From “So You Think You Can Dance,” to “America’s Greatest Dog,” and “Last Comic Standing,” the contestant crop grows smaller tonight. Who will survive?
“Project Runway” returned to Bravo last night with two of the ugliest designs I’ve ever seen. Challenged to create something fantastic out of ordinary items from the grocery store, one designer draped trash bags around her model’s neck and called it a day. The other made this wacky outfit that looked like it came out of Joss Whedon’s “Dr. Horrible” movie. On the other hand, there were a couple of truly imaginative and stunning designs. Can’t wait to see what happens next.
Right after that it was musical chairs on “Shear Genius” and the “Celebrity Circus” finale which I haven’t watched yet, so don’t tell me how it ends.

NBC should get some laughs when the comics dig up props for their act on “Last Comic Standing.” That’s followed by the truly scary, “Fear Itself.”
