The Apprentice: Martha Stewart debuts tonight

Martha Stewart made her return to television last week with her daytime show, but her most anticipated show debuts tonight at 8 p.m. ET. That’s when NBC will air The Apprentice: Martha Stewart, giving Martha 16 apprenti to mold and shape and dismiss.

Alexis Stewart, Martha’s daughter and one of her two advisors, told reporters, “Spending all this time with them (the candidates), it is fabulous. You really find the best person. When people walked in, I was like, `Loser, winner, loser’ and I was completely wrong.”

Martha says that, unlike Donald Trump, “I don’t like firing people. I don’t think I’ve ever said it even when I should have.” Perhaps that explains her exceptionally lame dismissal catchphrase.

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.
