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.
