Why I Love Bravo

Still taking votes on the baby legs in the next post. Used them again this morning as another layer in our walk... But let's move on.

If one television station could be called the center of my guilty pleasures, it would have to be Bravo. Two years ago, I may have said TLC, but my obsessions have shifted from Trading Spaces, What Not to Wear, and Clean Sweep to the full suite of reality shows offered on Bravo. Project Runway, Top Chef, Top Design, Make me a Supermodel... I'll joyfully watch any of them. I've even watched a few episodes of Millionaire Matchmaker (it's kind of interesting), but I do draw the line at The Real Housewives (gag) and that Kathy Griffin show (seriously??).
However, with all these great shows, the real reason I love Bravo is that the schedule fits my life. Sure, all their new shows premier at 10PM On any other network, this would be a problem, as we have sworn off TV after 10 in order to get some sleep. Bravo, other the other hand, doesn't have enough shows to fill their line-up. Instead, they cater to my schedule and replay each week's episode over an over in various timeslots. Missed the new Project Runway episode on Wednesday at 10? No problem, catch it on Thursday at 9, or a couple times over the weekend, or (as a last resort), Wednesday at 9 before the newest episode premiers. They may not have a wide variety of shows, but they get great mileage from the ones they have!
