Yes, But Will Melissa Rivers Avenge Her Loss?
There's more Donald in the works at NBC.
The network Wednesday greenlit a third cycle of "The Celebrity Apprentice," the reality competition show from Donald Trump and Mark Burnett. No shocker, given its nice Sunday night ratings.
The Internet had been buzzing about a return to the civilian format of "Apprentice." For now, however, NBC is only revealing plans to recruit another batch of slightly well-known people and pit them against one another.
I'm still holding out for Mr. T, Justine Bateman, Ricky Schroeder, Scott Bakula, Mindy Cohn and the guy who played Skippy on "Family Ties" to square off in a battle of the former 1980s NBC stars. You know it's a genius idea. Especially since The Donald still has '80s hair.
