The Apprentice 2 debuts tonight.
NBC’s biggest reality TV player returns tonight as The Apprentice 2 kicks off at 8:30 p.m. ET. The Donald is back, of course, along with 18 people who desperately want to work for him, and/or whore themselves with the fame the show will likely bring. USA TODAY details changes to this season, including immunity for the project manager the week after she or he is project manager. In its review, The Boston Globe says this season is “amped up” with “a more highly strung group of Type A personalities” and “overwhelming” product placement.
