Donald Trump Has His Own Announcement About NBC's Programming Plans, and It Differs From the Network's Party Line Deadline
On the heels of NBC’s unveiling of its fall 2013 schedule, which we reported previously, Donald Trump issued a tweet containing news that wasn't exactly in line with NBC’s version.
Trump’s news was that his show “Celebrity Apprentice” had been picked up for another season. But the show didn’t appear on the fall schedule released by NBC. The show has been considered to be on the bubble.
Trump tweeted on Sunday: “I am pleased to inform you that Celebrity Apprentice has been renewed for another season by NBC.” He added: “See you at the NBC upfronts tomorrow.”
Deadline.com reports that the network had not confirmed whether the show had officially been given the nod and had not announced whether Trump would be a part of the network’s upfront presentation.
Two years ago, Trump used the upfront stage to announce that he wouldn't run for president and would return to "Celebrity Apprentice,” Deadline notes.
