NBC Renews America's Got Talent and 2 Others, Celeb Apprentice Still MIA

Celebrity Apprentice Season 7

NBC Entertainment chairman Robert Greenblatt announced on Sunday at the Television Critics Assoc. press tour that the network has ordered new seasons of three summertime reality-TV staples.

America’s Got Talent will be returning for its 10th cycle, Last Comic Standing for Season 9 and American Ninja Warrior for Season 7 (three of which thus far have aired on NBC).

AGT regularly and easily dominates Tuesday nights in total viewers and in the demo, Last Comic holds down the fort on Thursday (where it has been leading out of freshman, off-season comedies) and Ninja Warrior most recently gave Under the Dome a run for the money in the Monday demo race.

As for NBC’s Celebrity Apprentice — which has been conspicuously MIA from any scheduling announcements — the network’s alternative programming boss Paul Teledgy said the seventh cycle is “produced” yet there is “no update” on when it might air.

Comments are monitored, so don’t go off topic, don’t frakkin’ curse and don’t bore us with how much your coworker’s sister-in-law makes per hour. Talk smart about TV!

    Oh please let Celebrity Apprentice die. Seriously! Nobody cares about the D level so called “celebrities” and I’m sick of seeing that man’s face.

    • TV Gord says:

      Call me petty, but I enjoy that NBC is treating Trump so shabbily. :-)

    • Kim R says:

      I am stunned at times when DT never seems to have any kind of serious backlash over some of the public rants he has unleashed at different people. I truly don’t understand why NBC would want him on their schedule. I don’t watch anything he is on.

      • TV Gord says:

        Regardless the lack of backlash, I think the general public has set the bar very low for what it expects from that over-inflated blowhard.

    • Rodg says:

      Don’t watch the show and there is nothing to be sick of it-it’s pretty easy to avoid

    • Alex says:

      So because you don’t like the show, it shouldn’t air? You have quite the ego, thinking TV schedulers should bow to your will, chickie.

    • Maggie says:

      Trump is one of the most unlikable people in the media. How low do his ratings have to go before they realize no one wants to see him on TV? It’s shocking how many seasons Celebrity Apprentice has gotten so far.

    Please make Celebrity Apprentice go away permanently.

    I’ll admit it – I like Celebrity Apprentice. I don’t know why, but I do. So I’ll be happy if it comes back.

    The Sing-Off???

  8. Coco Vitellaro says:

  9. I’m happy with ur news system. I wish to receive more at all time.

    I happen to like Apprentice. The Celebrities have to learn different skills and work together. We have regular people that can not do that.
