Savvy TV: Celebrity Apprentice Debuts Tonight

NBC is obviously showing off its business sense by kicking off the network's new reality series earlier than planned. With so many of the regularly scheduled shows cooling on the back burner until the strike is over, reality TV will rule the airwaves in the new year.

Tonight's first episode of The Celebrity Apprentice brings together 14 celebrities who seem to have only their fame in common. The actors, athletes, and musicians are challenged with oh-so-curious street meat in their initial challenge. As hot dog vendors, the "candidates" rally to earn the most money (for charity) and don't hesitate to use their fame to their advantage.

If you're wondering who I think has a chance,


It's difficult to say who my money is on for the series without seeing any hot dog vending. My first instinct was Marilu Henner, because I had a strange affinity for Taxi reruns as a kid, but after reading Gene Simmons' fascinating bio, I think I'll prematurely back his Apprentice ambitions.

I'm keeping in mind that the celebrities' bios are like resumes — they're fine for making preconceived judgments, but you never really know what you're in for until you see a person in action. Will you be tuning in to the latest reality adventure?

I love this show, and I'm so happy it's back! Yeah, Omarosa is definitely on the show for the ratings. I was very surprised to see how smart Gene Simmons(sp?) was, he was the first one to come up with the idea to call contacts and he just had other practical ideas and comments. The other celebs better watch out for him! lol I don't really have anyone I'm rooting for at this point, but I'll be watching next week.

Favorite Omarosa line of the night: "I'm glad you're picking up what I'm putting down." What a B! She is so over the top and all her face expressions make me sick. She won't last long.

Omarosa = ratings! I think that's why she's back because I can't imagine why else they'd want her bitch ass on that show!

you know - i have a client that was asked to participate as an advertiser in the show and another that's going to be featured in an episode - and to be honest - i wasn't going to pay any attention to the show at all when it aired - but......i found myself watching last night and you have to admit that the men were very good at raising money - even if gene did make a few calls

Why in the world is Omarosa back? She's not even a celebrity and she doesn't deserve to come back.
