'Apprentice' pioneers integrated ads
Variety - Los Angeles, CA, USA - In episode one, "Meet the Billionaire," which originally aired Jan. 8, 2004, eight-member teams Versacorp and Protege went head to ambitious, young, entrepreneurial head on the streets of Manhattan in a quest to see which could generate the most cash selling lemonade.

It was just lemonade -- neither Sunkist nor Countrytime nor any other citrus beverage company, had anything to do with it. And 18.5 million viewers -- the seventh most for any series that week -- drank up this dignity-defying spectacle, as 31-year-old venture capitalist David Gould became the first contestant on NBC's "The Apprentice" to get fired by Donald

Show an upscale demo surprise for NBC
Variety - Los Angeles, CA, USA - When NBC launched "The Apprentice" in 2004, advertisers were still holding their noses when it came to reality TV.

The Donald Trump-fronted competish skein sent a strong message to Madison Avenue: Reality TV can offer the same upscale environment as a top-tier drama.

Soon enough, "The Apprentice" was

Nely Galan - 'The Celebrity Apprentice' - NBC
Best Syndication - Pinon Hills, CA, USA - The women's team fail to win again this week. This time Omarosa lead them to this loss, and in the end Nely Galan gets fired on this week's 'Celebrity Apprentice.'

Omarosa spoke her mind this week on the apprentice as the tensions flared between the men and her. Of course her seeming enemy, British celebrity, Piers Morgan said that Omarosa was a “pointless waste of space.” How could Omarosa not vent, so she stoops to her old ways and pours a glass of champagne over his head.

So Omarosa is not a celebrity, she is a reality star, that helps to make

Report: Trump and NBC kiss and make up
TV Squad - Santa Monica, CA, USA - Reuters is reporting that NBC and Donald Trump have agreed to bring back The Apprentice for one more season, and possibly two. During this spring's Upfronts presentation, The Apprentice was left off the NBC schedule. The network didn't officially cancel the reality show, but Donald Trump opened his big yapper and announced that he had no plans to return for another season. Then, less than two weeks later, he told Larry King that he did want another season. Since then, NBC has hired a new entertainment president and that may be the reason The Apprentice is back on the table.
