    I'm sure he wouldn't want me to watch his program since he detests us unattractive fat people.

    He has always been a boor and a tacky vulgarian. Rosie is completely correct about him. He's hardly equipped to be a moral arbiter, and the idea that he is a financial whiz is laughable. I recall well when the bankruptcy courts were deciding how much of an allowance he needed to live on. Spy magazine used to call him "Queens-born casino operator," which just about sums it all up. Except that it insults everyone else from Queens.

    Maybe Melina (sp) will be in charge of a segments where the teams compete to land the biggest fish.

    I will probably watch the first episode and play it by ear and eye after that. There are usually late night re-runs anyway ... on CNBC I think.

    It's Survivor: L.A. But I'll watch it anyway. I do wish, however, that The Donald would sit down and figure out what made his first season so great--and get back to that.

    What made the first season so much better than later episodes is that Trump didn't have so much input in the first season. The more he got involved, the worse the ratings became and the bigger a joke the show became. I stopped watching after season 3, and it was one of the nicest things I've ever done for myself, I have to admit. Go me

    No way I'll ever be tempted to watch The Apprentice ever again, either.

    I'm going to watch it--if for no other reason than to make fun of it. It sounds as though it is going to be a train wreck, which usually makes for great entertainment. I've only watched the second season, so I'm not as burnt out as some of you are.

    I haven't watched Apprentice since Season 1...I sure as heck won't start watching now! I think Donald is a ass to the highest degree and I hope to sit back and enjoy reading of how the show is failing. I foresee that people probably will join in and watch the first episode to garner how it might be and out of curiosity because of the Rosie feud but I hope to see the ratings begin to plummet after the first week!!!

    I'm so happy to see this thread. I thought I was the only person boycotting this show. I haven't watched since season 2 anyways, but I really want Trump's antics to backfire on him in the ratings.

    Glad we weren't the only ones boycotting. The series nearly matched it's season lows of last season and sank to its worst-ever premiere among households 18-49. As ShrinkingViolet mentioned in the show discussion thread, the Grease lead-in show actually had higher ratings.

    Amazing how this feud has sparked the The View's ratings and had the opposite effect on Apprentice. I guess there are a few more "fat", "ugly" and "undesirable" viewers than Trump might have anticipated.
