Project Runway Returns With Lindsay Lohan and Big Ratings

Project Runway came back with a bang last night! The sixth season of the show returned on their new network Lifetime with Heidi Klum, Nina Garcia, Michael Kors and guest judge Lindsay Lohan.

The highly-anticipated show drew in more than 4.2 million viewers and was the highest rated competition reality series on cable this year.Ratings were up 32% from 2008's season 5 premiere.

For the season opener, the challenge for the 16 contestants was to create an innovative red carpet look representing the designer's point of view. Just in case it’s still in the Tivo queue, we won’t tell you who was “aufed!”

Surprisingly, Lindsay was very well-spoken as a guest judge. Despite her personal life being a mess, she does know a thing or two about red carpet style.

Tim Gunn expressed his delight in having Lindsay be a part of their season premiere, saying, "She was absolutely wonderful. She knows clothes, she knows what she likes, what she doesn't and she's able to articulate that."

Be sure to catch the rest of the episodes of Project Runway on Thursday at 10 on Lifetime, and catch the clip of last night’s show below.
