Awww  Identity was canceled  :'(

It's sort of bitter-sweet to say good bye to The Apprentice.

I'm always sad to see any reality show get cancelled.

But... The Apprentice was well past its glory days.  The finale of the most recent season was about as bad as reality television can get.

What killed the show was two things:
1) The idea of being Trump's apprentice was cheapened as more and more people won.  It broke through the illusion that the apprentice would be Donald's right hand man.
2) Too much advertising.  I'm watching the first season of The Apprentice UK, which is pretty much a mirror image of the US version.  It's refreshing to see tasks that are interesting, and not just a vehicle to advertise Cheetos.  And they couldn't just have one product featured per episode... They got way too greedy.

sorry to say it should have been gone a long time ago, when you mess with a formula too much you kill shows, not just in reality also in scripted.

"Trump Quits 'Apprentice'

Property tycoon Donald Trump has quit his reality TV show "The Apprentice" after the program was left off of NBC's new primetime schedule.

Trump was reportedly left fuming earlier this week after the network's announcement, and has decided to pull "The Apprentice" altogether."

NBC is still open to another season of "The Apprentice" despite a statement made last week by star Donald Trump distancing himself from the reality series.

My prediction.. It will be back probably next January when it will be broadcast from some exotic site possibly left over from a Survivor reject. The only criteria will be a fancy mansion for Mr. Trump.  :tup:

WAIT! I know the perfect place!! Paradise Hotel!!!!! :ghug:

Trump quits Apprentice

TRUMP FIRES SELF: OK, it’s not the most clever headline you’re going to read on the subject in the next day or two, but you know that no one will be able to resist some variation on it when announcing the news that Donald Trump has left The Apprentice, apparently as a preemptive strike after NBC pointedly left the show off its schedule for the next TV season.


“It looks like viewers will have to wait to see what Mr. Trump plans for the future," Trump said in a statement reported by Reuters. "But if Mr. Trump's past TV success is any indication of the future, then one can anticipate that millions of Apprentice fans will be migrating to his new venture.”


The Apprentice was the top-ranked new show when it debuted in 2004, but it lost two-thirds of its viewership before ending its sixth season last month. NBC had until the start of next month to come up with a new deal for the show, according to a New York Daily News story last week, which quoted NBC entertainment president Kevin Reilly saying that Trump has “a certain magic,” and that “we love him, we want to stay in business with him." If love just wasn’t enough, according to the story, Trump could take the show to any other interested network.


Wisely, one hopes, Trump has left The Apprentice and NBC behind, in what looks like a face-saving move. Whether there are, in fact, millions of Apprentice fans hotly anticipating Trump’s next TV venture, it’s always fun to speculate on what that might be.


The Apprentice lost its lustre when the Donald started drifting from his core competency – real estate – and began exclusively presenting contestants with marketing and branding challenges. Cable networks are full of shows about real estate makeovers, trading up and flipping with small but devoted followings – Trump could supersize the concept, presenting teams of contestants with mansions, subdivisions and condo complexes to rehab and sell instead of apartments and broken-down bungalows.


Given Trump’s own signature style of home decorating, he could go head to head with Justin and Colin and Debbie Travis, and descend on some unsuspecting individual and their outdated décor, armed with a team of handymen and women and a tractor trailer full of marble, gilt, brocade and ormolu. They could call it The Donald’s Really Big Makeover, or more accurately, Trump’s Hapsburg Bordello Roadshow; hey, baby – I’d TiVo it.

Boy this is so true! Putting people into tents this year in LA just put the proverbial final nail in the house of cards. Do something new and I'd watch!
