Trump: last season’s finale was a mistake; Apprentice 3 finale will last for one hour.

Trump: last season’s finale was a mistake; Apprentice 3 finale will last for one hour.
The exceedingly drawn-out, Regis Philbin-infected Apprentice 2 finale last December will not be repeated this year. Instead, the finale, broadcasting live from NYU will last for a single hour, airing on May 19. With this week’s episode, that means there are six episodes to go. At a press conference, Trump said, “At my insistence, I wanted it to be a one-hour finale. We ended up with a reunion and all of this nonsense. Nobody wants that. What they want is a finale where somebody gets fired.” Trump also said that Chris, who he’s systematically refused to fire, has “a problem. He’s got an anger management problem. We talked about it on the show. He truly is an angry guy.” Finally, Bill Rancic will remain in Trump’s clutches, and “will continue to work in sales and marketing on Trump International Hotel and Tower in Chicago,” the AP reports.

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.
