Trumpless 'Apprentice' Takes A Ratings Dive

January 4, 2017

With Arnold Schwarzenegger taking over for President-elect Donald Trump in the boardroom, NBC's two-hour "The Apprentice" premiere delivered 4.9 million viewers and a 1.3 rating among adults 18-49 this week. That's down 44% in the ratings compared to the reality show's previous opener in 2015.

Some say they didn't watch because they didn't want to support Mr. Trump in anyway. He is still being paid by the network for his role as a producer on the show.
