CNBC will air UK Apprentice

Although NBC has abandoned the version of The Apprentice that stars real people in exchange for the celebrity edition, CNBC will soon start broadcasting the U.K.’s non-celebrity version of the show, which some in the U.S. are already fans after watching it online.

CNBC announced that it will broadcast it twice every Monday night, at both 9 p.m. ET and 1 a.m. ET, starting August 25 and concluding November 10. It will also repeat Saturdays at 8 and 11.

The Apprentice UK, which airs on BBC One, has broadcast four seasons and three related spin-off shows, and follows the format of Donald Trump’s version. In his place is Sir Alan Sugar, who’s apparently closer to Gordon Ramsay in his approach than to Donald Trump, although he’s more witty than abusive. Here’s a montage of some of his moments from the fourth season:
