It’s been only a few weeks since Naima Mora won, but “America’s Next Top Model” seems like a faint memory. And I still miss “Project Runway.”

I’m in a TV funk.

Maybe it’s the cliffhanger-hangover I have from non-reality shows: Where did the heck does that hatch lead to on “Lost”? Who was Veronica greeting at the door on “Veronica Mars”? Does Jimmy Smits or Alan Alda get to be president on “West Wing”?

Hmm, maybe I’ll turn off the tube and re-read “The Devil Wears Prada.” But wait, what’s this? Some stylish reality show goodies arrive this week.

On Tuesday, two faves will return to the Bravo network .

First up is “Blow Out” at 9 p.m. EDT with hunky, hothead hairstylist Jonathan Antin and his La-La Land shops. Last year, the series followed Antin as he opened a salon in Beverly Hills called Jonathan. His first shop is in West Hollywood.

This season, we get to see Antin go global with the launch of a hair-care line called Jonathan Product.

The sexy hairstylist also has a new assistant to torture, I mean, nurture. (Kimberly “graduated” to the rank of stylist – and yes, she’s back this season.)

I tune in to watch Antin explode, switch glasses frequently (each pair is cool), call every guy “brother” and utter statements such as “I am what I do. I am hair, man.”

Don’t change the channel – “Queer Eye for the Straight Guy” comes at 10 p.m. And the opener shouldn’t be missed. The Fab Five tackle five players from the champion Boston Red Sox: Kevin Millar, Johnny Damon, Jason Varitek, Tim Wakefield and Doug Mirabelli.

Team QE visited the Sox during spring training in Florida. Designer Thom Filicia turned the stadium’s press room into a makeshift salon where the jocks got manis, pedis, back waxes, highlights (Damon sports foil in one shot) and shaves.

On Thursday at 8 p.m., Tommy Hilfiger’s “The Cut” debuts on CBS.

Here’s the plot: Sixteen contestants live in a Manhattan loft and try to recreate Hilfiger’s rags-to-riches story. Assignments will test talent, business smarts, sales and marketing savvy, social skills, resourcefulness and sense of style.

Participants include Felix, 35, a skateboarder from Los Angeles; Jessica, 22, Miss Minnesota USA 2004; Julie, 37, a mom with three kids from St. Louis; Chris S., 25, a Nashville restaurateur; Shauna, 39, a socialite from New Orleans; Tommy, 42, a Chicago teacher; and Princess, 22, a freelance designer from Philadelphia.

One final show to note in case you can’t get enough of Paris or Nicky Hilton: “I Want To Be A Hilton.” Matriarch Kathy Hilton oversees a contest among 14 young people who want more than anything to live the glamorous Hilton life. Starting June 21, it’s on at 9 p.m. Tuesdays on NBC. Hmm, wonder what their challenges will be. Red-carpet vamping? Bedroom Videos 101? Extending the life of your hair extensions?
