Donald Trump's Presidential Bid: Will It End His Celeb Apprentice Gig?

He’s fired?

Well, not exactly. But Donald Trump may be forced to step down from his Celebrity Apprentice gig after launching an official bid for the presidency on Tuesday.

“We will re-evaluate Trump’s role as host of Celebrity Apprentice should it become necessary, as we are committed to this franchise,” said NBC in a statement.

In February, the network renewed Trump’s reality staple for Season 15 concurrently with its Season 14 finale drawing 6 million total viewers and a 1.6 demo rating, up 13 percent and a tenth from its previous finale (circa May 2013, which had marked a series low).

Thoughts? Surprised Celebrity Apprentice is still a thing? Thoughts on who could possibly succeed Trump? Do the words “President Trump” send shivers down your spine?
