More on the Apprentice.....

I have spoke about the Apprentice before and while watching last night I think I decided to stop watching in the future. Two things that hit me last night were this

Trump did his intro to the task and said (and I am paraphrasing) "welcome to the Chinese Grumman Theatre (sp?)......I should have my footprints and hand prints in cement outside because I am a bigger star then any of them...I HAVE THE #1 SHOW ON TV"

Has Trump not noticed that his rating have dropped every season since inception and he is far from the #1 show unless he is reading some obscure rating sku like #1 with shut ins between the age of 34-45 with Black and White televisions.

His phony bravado is too much for me and I think I am bowing out....too bad I am not a Nelson family.

The other thing that made me realize I am not interested anymore is the fact that they gloss over the tasks. I have mentioned this before but last night it hit me why this bothers me. Without seeing the people participate in the tasks I can't decide who did a good job and I can't get emotionally invested in any contestants. Why would I care who gets kicked off if I can't play along at home?

This show has gone so far away from what made it cool that I would be surprised if it lasts another two seasons...I say two because I think the next season is already filmed or will be doing so soon.....doesn't matter to me because I won't be watching.

Starting a feud with Rosie "Ching Chong" O'Donnell wasn't weird enough. He has to "fight" Ed McMahon? Really? Now if Ivanka were to wrestle Stacy Keibler (yes, I did see your facial comparison on Facebook), oh I would so pay tickets to see that.

Yeah, I've trickled away from The Apprentice over the seasons to the point where I don't have to see it anymore as well. said...

Oh, it's:

"Grauman's Chinese Theater"
