“Project Runway” (Lifetime 7 p.m.) We crown another winner tonight. Probably Mondo. Or not. But probably.

“Fairy Jobmother” (Lifetime 9 p.m.) Think “Nanny 911,” but instead of helping with unruly kids, this woman kicks unemployed people in the butt and makes them get jobs.

Tuesday 2

“America’s Election Headquarters: The 2010 Midterms” (KASA-2 7 p.m.) All the networks will be covering the election results tonight, but FOX is likely to be the most smugly self-congratulatory—I mean, “fair and balanced”—about it.
