WHO THE FUCK IS STILL WATCHING THIS SHIT?
NBC is going to be airing two hours of Celebrity Apprentice in its winter season. I haven’t watched this show in years, and I don’t plan to tune in this year either. Who are you people who are still watching this? If you’re out there, and you’re reading this, please unmask yourself. Why do you still enjoy this show? And so much that there is now going to be two hours of it each week?
How desperate is NBC right now?
Watch how it’s being spun:
What makes NBCâ€™s decision interesting is that the network only recently officially asked â€œApprenticeâ€ executive producer Mark Burnett to upsize the show, according to a source with knowledge of the request. Production on the new season of the series had already wrapped, and some sources predicted producers might have to scramble to fill the time.
Mr. Burnett, however, said that NBC officials had actually been talking to him about expanding the show â€œfor weeks.â€ He said that he and Mr. Trump welcomed the decision.
â€œItâ€™s great,â€ he said during a brief telephone conversation from New York. â€œIt wasnâ€™t a sudden call at all. During production, the people at NBC were saying the show was so great and should really be two hours.â€
Mr. Burnett said Mr. Trump is particularly pumped by the expansion.
â€œDonald has always felt the boardrooms were too short, and I think heâ€™s right,â€ Mr. Burnett said. â€œRight now, thereâ€™s really only about nine minutes of footage that we use and the boardroom (scenes) go on for hours sometimes. The problem has been trying to squeeze it all in. Every season we go through the struggle of cutting the show down.
â€œThis wasnâ€™t a sudden call,â€ Mr. Burnett added. â€œIt really came from how strongly everyone felt about the show when we were shooting.â€
