It was child's play on "Face Off" (Syfy, Tuesdays) when the makeup artists had to create "real" monsters from kids' drawings.
Alana Rose Schiro found herself in the bottom two after two judges disliked the bland paint job on her monster (although a third loved her creation). But the Tom Savini Special Make-up Effects program graduate was safe for another week after fellow artist Rod Maxwell failed to impress.
Next up, a visit from Hollywood producer Brian Grazer and a trip to Dr. Seuss' "Who-Ville."
One of the contestants on "Ink Master" (Spike TV, beginning with back-to-back episodes Tuesday) begins by accidentally spraying herself in the face with black ink. No, we shouldn't laugh but ... but ... it's so funny."
Luckily, said contestant is not Sarah Miller.
Ms. Miller, who is a tattoo artist and owner of Wyld Chyld on Brookline Boulevard, is one of 16 who will compete in a season full of big egos and some nervous human canvasses.
In the opening episode, she brings home the bacon despite the strange request of a client.
"He had a very specific idea of what he wanted [for his tattoo], and I couldn't talk him around it," said Ms. Miller, 27.
See a feature profile of Ms. Miller in Sunday's Pittsburgh Post-Gazette Magazine section.
"Project Runway" is bringing back some of its most memorable -- and abrasive -- talents for the newest cycle of "All Stars," premiering Oct. 25 on Lifetime (that's one week after the Season 10 crown goes to Christopher Palu ... just saying).
Longtime fans of the show will clap their hands in glee or merely shudder at this lineup, which includes the evil Ivy Higa -- minion to Season 8 winner Gretchen Jones -- Season 8's eminently likable Peach Carr, Season 2's fabulous Andrae Gonzalo -- he of the imaginary Red Lobster dinner date with Tim Gunn -- and Season 1 finalist Wendy Pepper, who set a high standard for reality villains.
Alas, no Mr. Gunn this time around. He's replaced once again by Joanna Coles, former editor-in-chief of Marie Claire magazine and now of Cosmopolitan.
Guest judges include Katie Holmes, Gretchen Mol and Diane von Furstenberg.
And speaking of all-stars, Logo premieres its first such glitterfest in "RuPaul's Drag Race" herstory Oct. 22.
Fan favorites Chad Michaels and Latrice Royale from last season, as well as Pandora Boxx, Manila Luzon and eight others compete for $100,000 and the title.
Here's a concept where they could do a reality show about the casting of a reality show: CBS is launching "The Job," a series produced by Emmy winners Michael Davies ("Who Wants to be a Millionaire") and Mark Burnett ("Survivor" and "The Voice.")
Candidates are promised a chance to "win dynamic positions with potential for enormous growth at some of America's most iconic companies."
Applicants must be 18 or older and legally eligible to live and work in the U.S. To apply, go to www.cbs.com/thejob or try to attend one of the open casting calls in New York and Los Angeles this weekend. Details available at the website.
