The Celebrity Apprentice 7

Celebrity Apprentice renewed; its winner explained why

The Celebrity Apprentice renewed itself this season, literally: The show will return again, thanks in no small part to the fact that its ratings are up after slumping severely during its all-star season in 2013. And it should return. The seventh season ended with a two-hour live finale and Leeza Gibbons’ defeat of Geraldo Rivera, which earned her charity $250,000. In a …

Former Apprentice crew member defends show’s authenticity

A former crew member for NBC’s Celebrity Apprentice and the regular version of The Apprentice has responded to cast members’ claims that eliminations aren’t only the result of Donald Trump’s whims. Cast member Kenya Moore, who was on this season, and Mark McGrath, who was on season four, separately said that their Celebrity Apprentice eliminations were in some way planned or not …

Evidence that Celebrity Apprentice’s firings are planned

After Kenya Moore was fired on last week’s The Celebrity Apprentice, someone on Twitter told her she “didn’t deserve to go home.” Kenya replied: “I know but it was planned that way.” This sounds like typical post-exit complaining, but it echoes a conversation I’d had recently. Is it possible that the eliminations are planned, rather than just the product …

The Celebrity Apprentice has a boardrooom problem

During the last half hour of The Celebrity Apprentice, there was finally a dramatic boardroom fight, with Kenya and Vivica going at each other, passionately trying to take the other down in order. Vivica mocked Kenya’s resume narration; Kenya buttered up Trump so much he was glistening. But then: Trump fired Kate Gosselin. “I really feel it’s your time,” he said. …

All of Celebrity Apprentice’s sexual innuendo

With Kenya and Brandi getting along enough to fake fight in their underwear, and the show’s editing setting up Geraldo as a creative genius, the drama on Celebrity Apprentice kind of flatlined. Joan Rivers had a good line or two, but was barely a presence in the second episode, despite the relentless promotion of her appearance. And most significantly, …

Trump challenged on Apprentice ratings, takes credit for celebs’ fame

Donald Trump, Mark Burnett, and most of the remaining cast of Celebrity Apprentice faced TV critics and reporters this morning in Pasadena, and as usual, what came out of Trump’s mouth was even more ridiculous than anything the celebrities could have said. There was an unbelievable amount of ridiculousness. There was also Geraldo. Here are some highlights of …

Celebrity Apprentice: A Family Affair recap

Celebrity Apprentice is burning through its celebrities rapidly, dispatching two more last night. Neither were particularly interesting or dramatic characters this season, and they went home in two so-so episodes. There wasn’t quite the drama of last week’s showdowns, even with (or perhaps because of) a team swap. But there’s clearly more to come, especially with Real …

The mixed emotions of Celebrity Apprentice’s return

At the start of Celebrity Apprentice, Donald Trump interrupted his droning on to ask if there were questions, and Gilbert Gottfried asked why they were standing outside in the freezing cold. Such a terrific moment, and one that Donald Trump stomped on by suggesting the cold meant global warming doesn’t exist, because Donald Trump doesn’t understand the …

Of course Donald Trump just used Joan Rivers to promote Celebrity Apprentice

The Celebrity Apprentice‘s seventh season finally has a debut date (Jan. 4) and a timeslot (Mondays at 8, taking over from The Voice). The show was filmed last summer after being all but forgotten by NBC, which no longer needs the series like it once did. Donald Trump appeared on The Today Show this morning …

Celebrity Apprentice filmed but not scheduled, Biggest Loser kicked to Thursdays

The Celebrity Apprentice has filmed its 7th season, but is still on track to not air until 2015, two years after its last season aired. Meanwhile, NBC is bumping The Biggest Loser to Thursdays, where it will air against CBS’ new Thursday night football. That makes it “a sacrificial lamb,” as Alan Sepinwall called it. …

Alleged Celebrity Apprentice cast list is so absurd it doesn’t deserve this much attention

A list of possible Celebrity Apprentice cast members was posted online last week is so ridiculous that we really shouldn’t even be paying it this much attention. The show is still in limbo, and while it’s likely to return this year at some point, there has been no official confirmation from NBC at this point. …
