I'm watching, too! But to be honest, the first two shows have been pretty forgettable.
I'm glad they don't have the same host as last year--she was AWFUL (Wooden Woman). The host this year is a little bit better, but only in comparison. She's about as good as Brooke is on Dancing with the Stars, which isn't saying much.
I agree with the comment about there being no real mentor. The gal who comes in to do the critiques (Joanna Coles) is the editor of Marie Claire and is probably too busy/important to devote any more time than she already does. The show needs Tim Gunn!
Actually, the show needs a lot of things--experienced host, reputable judges, interesting challenges, an engaged mentor. If the producers are not willing to put the money and effort into the show, why even have it?
