"The Apprentice" Blame Game

mstewart.jpgI've got a new catchphrase for "The Apprentice" franchise: "You're tired!" Reality TV World says that Donald Trump is blaming the new Martha Stewart version of his show for his slip in the ratings.

He says that viewers are confused, which to me means he must think we are all borderline retarded. Even after a 12-pack of Schlitz, I think I can tell the difference between a blonde, monotone domestic diva and a jillionaire with bad hair. It seems to work for the many incarnations of "Law & Order" and "CSI." And here's another news flash for Trump: She's sucking in the ratings too.

It's like a bad math problem. Trump seems to think that without Martha, he would have both ratings combined. Not everyone can be a "Survivor," buddy. Truth is, just some shows become played out, especially when they involve weasels trying to get ahead and make more money than most of the couch potatoes out there could ever dream of.

The funniest part: Trump said he knew this would happen. It didn't seem to stop him from promoting. He also apparently predicted the stock market dip in 2002 and Black Monday in 1987, but decided to keep those juicy nuggets to himself as well.

"The Apprentice: Martha Stewart" airs every Wednesday at 9:00 p.m. (EST) The Donald Trump version airs every Thursday at the same time. Both are on NBC. -- Rachel Cericola
