"Project Runway" got off to strong start Thursday at its new home on Lifetime with an audience of 4.2 million viewers. That was up 32 percent from the Season 5 premiere on Bravo.
That audience also made it the highest rated competition reality series premiere on cable this year.
The series was also up in the key demographic of women 18 to 49 years of age -- by 28 percent over last year's premiere on Bravo.
The Show beat all other cable programs in its time period in young demographics. It was the highest-rated season premiere in the show's history.
