The newest running of The Apprentice just started, and so far, I like it plenty. Arny is pretty full of himself, and the puns are corny (but funny), but the show is more entertaining than it was with Trump. As usual I don't recognize half of the "celebrities" (Olympians, sports people, housewife of something), but I can put that aside easily enough.
The biggest negative so far; Tyra Banks. Really? Has reality TV not seen enough of her? Not horrible, just think her 15 minutes is/should be over.
Watch it, it's entertaining (if you like that sort of show).

Generally, I dislike so-called reality TV, but more to the point, I'm surprised folks aren't boycotting everything associated with this production. I'm confident that the Don profits from the Apprentice just like everything to which his name's attached.

Personally, I find it rewarding to utilize my time in productive, uplifting endeavors, but there are certainly more creative ways of wasting one's time that won't leave you feeling unclean. Of course, everyone's mileage varies.

Cheers,
AuPh

...Bill Clinton is starting a new reality show.

It is to be called "The Intern".

    ...the lowest common denominator - reality TV.

     

    I think that "honor" goes to day time shows, posted on January 5, 2017 at 07:15:39

    I am a big fan of U.K. Apprentice with lord sugar. I gave up on u.s. Apprentice quite a while ago and I think Arnold is even worse than trump.

    U.K. version has real business oriented tasks involving costing, sales, negotiation etc. US version is a long infomercial, clearly paid for by the business, where you learn all,the greatness of Tyra banks' cosmetic technology or trident gum health benefits. Pure crap.

    The whole business process is skipped over in the commercial heavy US version. The boardroom seems scripted to some degree and Arnold was stiff and dull, even worse than trump and trump,was pretty bad.

    I won't be tuning in next week.
