Is The Apprentice in danger of being cancelled?

With sliding ratings for The Apprentice 5, will the series live on to move to LA for its sixth season?

The Mercury News’ Charlie McCollum suggests that it may not, and that it will be cancelled by NBC. He writes, “Even though the series already is casting its next season, don’t count on it living past its June season finale.” However, he notes “it’s possible it could be used as a fill-in or a summer series,” which means that it wouldn’t be cancelled so much that it would just be postponed.

We should know May 15, when NBC announces its fall schedule, if Trump has a place on it, or if Howie Mandel will just take over Mondays.
