NBC President Bob Greenblatt, speaking on a conference call Sunday after releasing the network’s fall schedule, talked about the network’s plans for “The Apprentice” should host Donald Trump announce that he’s running for president, TVLine.com reported.
The network would replace Trump with a new host. "Who that is, we’re not going to really entertain, because I’m still hoping well have Donald back in the seat," Greenblatt said.
Greenblatt confirmed that the show will continue even if Trump does not. "We’d have to be confident we have another galvanizing presence. I’m hopeful we don’t have to go there, but if we do, it’s too strong a franchise to not consider that," he said.
