Apprentice 3 debut up from season two debut; Trump signed for two more seasons.
The premiere episode of The Apprentice 3 was watched by 15.6 million viewers, about 1.2 million more than watched The Apprentice 2‘s finale. However, it still got its ass kicked by a repeat of CSI, which was seen by 19 million viewers. Meanwhile, NBC has officially picked up the show–and Donald Trump–for two more seasons, both of which will apparently air during the 2005-2006 television season. The Apprentice 4 is currently casting. And open casting calls begin in late January.
