The Apprentice 4 debuts tonight opposite Dancing with the Stars dance-off results

Donald Trump’s The Apprentice 4 will debut tonight at 9 p.m. ET, opposite the results show for ABC’s Dancing with the Stars dance-off.

First, at 8, ABC airs a repeat of the Dancing with the Stars dance-off, which aired on Tuesday. After that episode, MSNBC’s Craig Berman wrote that “Monaco fans couldn’t have been happy with the coverage on Tuesday. O’Hurley, who was seen by many as the favorite during the show’s original run, was now being painted as the scrappy underdog looking to right a perceived injustice.” As The New York Times reported, the return of the series came almost entirely because of critics bitching to ABC executives, and Kelly Monaco wasn’t happy with the idea of a dance-off, nor with John O’Hurley’s bitching. It will all be resolved–or not–tonight at 9 p.m. ET.

That reveal will take place in the middle of the fourth season of The Apprentice, which is , reportedly his favorite season yet because he helped select the cast. There will be some rule changes, but otherwise, it’ll be the same game.
