Here we go! Promising to do for design what “Project Runway” did for fashion, Bravo’s “Top Design” is gearing up for a knock-down, drag-out season pitting “half Henry Rollins, half David Lee Roth, with a sprinkle of Evil Knievel” against “George Michael” in a quest to bring a new level of respect to the design industry. Oh, boy.

Watch as judges La-Z-Boy Todd Oldham, Anti-Depressive Jonathan Adler, Playboy’s Kelly Wearstler and Elle Decor’s Margaret Russell (sorry, no dirt on her yet) roll their eyes in mock-distain as the twelve designers try to “Top” one another.

Don’t want to watch? Really, you don’t? Never fear: Blogging Top Design has got it covered.
