The Apprentice 2 concludes tonight.

The Apprentice 2 concludes tonight.
Three hours after it begins, the final episode of The Apprentice 2 will conclude tonight, ending the series and naming a winner. The three hours will include a reunion, the final boardroom, and Regis Philbin, plus the obligatory time-killing recap of the entire season. Either Jenn or Kelly will become Trump’s newest apprentice. So who will it be? I say Jenn, mostly because it’s a toss-up and Donald Trump will not choose another white 30-something male. But Trump tells the Sun-Times that sex won’t play into his decision: “Politically maybe it’s a little bit better to go with a woman.” Presumably with a straight face, he added, “But I always go with what’s best for the job as opposed to what’s best for entertainment. … I mean we could have kept Omarosa [Manigault-Stallworth of the first season] on for another three episodes and that would have been great entertainment, but it was her time.”

Surprisingly, man not eaten alive on Eaten Alive

Eaten Alive

Discovery Channel’s happy family holiday special Eaten Alive aired Sunday, rewarding viewers for their two full hours of viewing by ensuring that they spent quality time in the company of others instead of wasting that time doing something else that might not have been as satisfying, such as buying things that have labels which accurately reflect their contents.
