    Pul-eeeeease.

    Does every reality show need a lame dismissal tagline?

    Exactly! If I were at NBC, I'd be furious about that.

    Not strange. Sloppy.

    -The person who produced the commercial didn't check with the show's editors to confirm that the dismissal was in the last few seconds of the show. It might be that the show was re-edited to move that segment, or that the commercial producers just got raw footage, but either way this should have been triple checked.
    -Reverse of the above: the show's staff didn't vette the commercial before it aired.
    -An alternate explanation is that both people did their job, but some other person in the network scheduling heirarchy moved the commercial last minute. It would seem that like with the Apprentice preview commericals, this was intended to go RIGHT before the credits roll.

    And didn't a similar thing happen with one Apprentice episode last year? I'm not positive, but I have a vague memory.

    I'm with Krom.. does every Reality Show really need a "line" when getting rid of someone?

    It was funny when Jason moved to strike that. It's a good thing Dingo wasn't in the courtroom! hehe

    I thought the show was interesting, but I'm not so sure they should dismiss the ones on the winning team. What is the incentive for winning if you are not given the safety of continuing in the game?

    Having seen every episode of The Apprentice from the beginning, I have NEVER seen that happen there.

    I think they were let go because even though the plaintiffs won, in the arbitration case Roy Black pointed out that the plaintiff team didn't go for punitive damages against the Coroner who stopped the woman, while in the dog case there were some major foul-ups on both sides, including one by the plaintiff team that if this were in a normal courtroom (and not in this structure) they likely would have easily lost.
