It had all the makings of a holiday camp classic. Lifetime's seasonal TV movie The Christmas Consultant stars David Hasselhoff as a green bow tie-wearing, bespectacled holiday hero who helps an overworked and overstressed family get through December.
But after bad reviews and a low-rated Nov. 10 premiere (just 1.5 million viewers), Lifetime quietly began scrubbing additional airings of the TV movie. Pre-emptions included a big Sunday primetime screening on Dec. 2. As a result, The Christmas Consultant wasn't set to air again until Dec. 25 at 6/5c — Christmas night, when presumably fewer viewers are watching TV or too juiced up on nog to appreciate it.
Then a funny thing happened:
Emilio Sosa and Casanova
What in the world are Emilio and Casanova talking about now?
Grant Bowler and Lindsay Lohan
The fall television event everyone had been waiting for has come and gone, but it will live on in Twitter infamy forever.
We're talking, of course, about Liz & Dick, the Lifetime movie starring Lindsay Lohan as Elizabeth Taylor, which premiered Sunday.
The film was overwhelmingly panned by critics and regular viewers alike, and even some celebrities — including Lohan herself — offered their thoughts via Twitter. Here's a roundup of some of the best celebrity tweets from the night:
Dmitry Sholokhov, Fabio Costa, Melissa Fleis and Christopher Palu
On Thursday's finale of Project Runway Season 10, the final four designers showed their collections at Fashion Week after receiving harsh criticism from the judges that they needed to overhaul their collections.
In the end, former ballroom dancer-turned-designer Dmitry Sholokhov from Belarus took home the crown, beating out Fabio Costa, Melissa Fleis and Christopher Palu. His collection was inspired by organic architecture and featured strong geometric shapes and textiles that the judges deemed luxurious, editorial and highly commercial.

After last week's fake-out challenge in which none of the designers were eliminated, the final four paraded their collections at Mercedes Benz Fashion Week in the Project Runway Season 10 finale on Thursday.
Lifetime has renewed its documentary series Dance Moms for a third season, the network announced Wednesday. The show will return next year with 26 new episodes.
