Apprentice 6 bumped to January, will air on Sundays

Contrary to reports that the show will be cancelled, The Apprentice 6 will air after all. However, NBC is pushing the LA-set season’s debut until January of 2007.

The network is also changing its night, moving the series to Sundays at 9 p.m. ET. That will be the second change in two seasons, since it moved to Mondays for the fifth season.

On Sundays, the show will be paired with the Regis Philbin-hosted competition series America’s Got Talent, which is executive produced by Simon Cowell.
