BRAVO COUNTS DOWN TO THE FINALE OF 'PROJECT RUNWAY'S' FIFTH SEASON OF FABULOUS

"The Rachel Zoe Project" Ratings Swell In All Key Demos

NEW YORK � October 3, 2008 � It's down to the final thread as Bravo counts down the fifth season of fabulous starting with part one of the two-part finale airing Wednesday, October 8 at 9 p.m. ET/PT. After last week's emotional episode in which the judges sent all four remaining designers home to prepare collections for Bryant Park, no designer is safe as they prepare for the final elimination before Fashion Week. Tim Gunn does home visits with the final four and then the designers prepare to take to the tents to determine who will be the next winner of "Project Runway."

This week's episode of "Project Runway" boasted the highest non-finale telecast ever for the series among total viewers and hit season highs among adults 18-49, with a whopping 4.014 million total viewers and 2.739 million adults 18-49 tuning in, according to Nielsen Media Research. Averaging its highest rated season to date, "Project Runway" was also the No. 1 cable telecast for the day among adults 18-49. Over the next two weeks, Bravo will re-air some of the best "Project Runway" moments culminating in two marathons of season five on Friday, October 10 from 12 p.m. to 1 a.m., and on finale day, Wednesday, October 15 from 10 a.m. � 8 p.m. leading into the finale at 9 p.m. ET/PT.
