For viewers who can’t get enough Donald Trump by just watching the news and comedy shows, one network — CNBC — is working on ramping up its Trump content by running repeats of his former reality show “The Apprentice.”
The New York Post reports that talks are under way to make that happen.
The report quotes a well-placed source saying: “It’s going to CNBC.” The source adds: “The deal is not quite done yet.”
The Post quotes a CNBC spokesman saying: “We’ve always loved the show and it certainly fits nicely in our prime time with ‘The Profit,’ ‘Jay Leno’s Garage,’ ‘Shark Tank’ and ‘Billion Dollar Buyer.’”
CNBC aired repeats of the NBC program in prime time back in 2004, the report notes.
