Apprentice 2 may have three-hour finale.
The final episode of The Apprentice 2, featuring the live reveal of the winner, may air over three hours, Donald Trump said. In addition, the Daily News reports that “NBC and show executive producer Mark Burnett were considering moving the live finale to Radio City Music Hall or Lincoln Center to accommodate a bigger audience.” Trump said that “NBC is upping it,” although the paper says “a network source confirmed that the extended finale and new venue are under consideration, but added that no decisions have been made.” The show debuts in Sept. and will likely end in December. Currently, NBC is casting for The Apprentice 3; auditions in New York City are today.
