The new cast of "Project Runway" now that it's back on Bravo.

TV best bets with ‘The Bachelor’ finale, ‘Project Runway’ back on Bravo, John Lennon & Yoko, Richard Pryor, ‘Arrested Development’

“The Bachelor” still has its fans and they are riveted by what Colton will do next now that Cassie is out of the picture. Will he even bother to pop the question to the remaining two picks? Find out Monday.

Another classic reality show “Project Runway” returns to its original home, Bravo, after the whole Harvey Weinstein mess. But neither original host Heidi Klum or breakout star and mentor Tim Gunn will be back. Instead, Bravo is opting for two much younger models: 26-year-old Karli Kloss and former “Project Runway” victor, 33-year-old Christian Siriano. Will the show ever be the same? Viewers will be the judge starting Thursday for season 17.

A&E will go back 38 years to look at the making of John and Yoko’s “Imagine.” And Paramount Friday explores the complicated life of comic Richard Pryor.

Netflix’s biggest show of the week is season 5 of “Arrested Development.” Amazon counters with its final season of “Catastrophe.” And “SNL” star Aidy Bryant tries her hand at scripted comedy with “Shrill” on Hulu.
