"The Apprentice" Premiere Tanks

"The Apprentice" Premiere Tanks


Donald Trump made headlines recently by fighting with Rosie O'Donnell and shaming Miss USA, but all that publicity still couldn't get anyone excited about the premiere of "The Apprentice: Los Angeles."

Sunday night's episode was the series' worst premiere ever. It got whupped in the ratings by "Desperate Housewives" and "Brothers & Sisters" on ABC and "Without a Trace" on CBS. Perhaps worst of all, it lost 20 percent of the audience that tuned in earlier for "Grease: You're the One That I Want".

Apparently not even adding Ivanka — and throwing in that twist where the losing team sleeps in tents — could get people buzzing about the new season. What happened? Did Trump's bizarre bickering with Rosie turn people off? Or are we just finally sick of looking at his hair?

Ugh, I am totally on Team Rosie with this one. Trump is such a disgusting, horrible man and he SHOULD be publicly insulted because all anyone does is kiss his butt. It's so gross and ridiculous. I don't love Rosie, and I think she was wrong with the whole Kelly Ripa thing (not to mention basically outing Clay Aiken) but in this case I agree with her - he IS a "snake oil salesman!" And that's putting it tamely. And he reacted like a toddler. I hope the Apprentice goes away forever.

I still love the idea of this show...I only caught a little bit of it, but I thought Ivanka was great. Maybe she should take over? I DID NOT like the idea that the losers had to sleep in a tent. That's just dumb. As though the rewards weren't great enough for the winning team! Anyway, Sundays are busy days for me, but I'll watch it when I can. And, I hate Rosie so much, I love Trump to spite her.

I think its run its course too. The last couple seasons were so repetitive. At least they tried to do something new, but I'm not upset that it didn't work. I did check it out, and I thought the Project Manager was a tool too. ------------------------------------------------------ Imagination is more important than knowledge.

This show has run its course. If Donald were a decent man with a modicum of integrity, he'd put it to rest.

Seems like all the pre-show publicity backfired. Can't say that I'm sorry.
