Don’t count out “Celebrity Apprentice.”
Even though host Donald Trump announced he’s running for president, and is therefore unlikely to appear on the show while he’s a candidate, reports say the show will probably go on at some point. The real estate mogul said Tuesday he’ll see the Republican presidential nomination.
Advertising Age reported Tuesday “however things shake out, NBC isn't pulling the plug on ‘Celebrity Apprentice.’
“On the odd chance the network brings the show back without Mr. Trump, his children Ivanka, Donald Jr. and Eric would almost certainly return for an eighth season,” the magazine reported. “The show's too big for NBC to let it fizzle out.” The show was one of NBC’s highest rated programs last season.
“We will re-evaluate Trump’s role as host of Celebrity Apprentice should it become necessary, as we are committed to this franchise” NBC told Fox411.
