Project Runway needs to "Carry On!"

I need my Tim and Heidi fix! Season 6 of Project Runway (the link was purposely not posted because of the controversy below) was set to debut last month...Bryant Park Fashion Week started 2 days ago and sadly, Project Runway is still not airing. What the heck is going on? This inside scoop was posted on Wikipedia...

"The as-yet unaired sixth season was the first season of Project Runway to be filmed in Los Angeles rather than New York. The season was filmed at the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising, and filming concluded on Friday, October 17, 2008. Finalists are showing their collections at New York Fashion Week this month. The Fashion Week runway finale will be filmed at Bryant Park on February 20, 2009, at 9:00AM but the finalist designers' names will be withheld from the audience and thus their identities will be kept secret until the intended future airing of the sixth season of the contested show.
The sixth season had been announced to begin airing in January 2009 on Lifetime, but this did not occur. The announcement occurred before NBC Universal sought preliminary injunctive action effectively enjoining production. The launch may be further delayed due to Lifetime's request that the suit between NBC Universal and The Weinstein Co. be moved to a federal court. As of January 30, 2009, the court case is still in state court, with no trial date set."

Tim and Heidi...take me away! Pin It
