NEW YORK � December 8, 2005 � The two-hour second season premiere of Bravo's Emmy-nominated series "Project Runway" became the highest rated series premiere ever on a Wednesday night in the history of the network while shattering the ratings from the first season opener. More than one million total viewers tuned in to see sixteen designers competing in design challenges for the opportunity to show a line at New York Fashion Week.

"We are thrilled with the response to the new season," said Lauren Zalaznick, President of Bravo. "The audience build over the two-hours proves that the second season offers just as much quality and drama, if not more, than our Emmy-nominated inaugural season."

On the day of the premiere, BravoTV.com witnessed a spike to 100,000 unique visitors. This is up from the average of 45,000 on a typical day, generating one sixth of the average monthly traffic to the site in just one day. The site also garnered 1.3 million page views.

� 1,036,000 total viewers from 10:45 p.m. 11:00 p.m. quarter hour was the peak audience
