Note: These ratings are collected by the Nielsen company and are the final national numbers.

The final nationals are typically released within 24 hours of the programming or, in the case of weekends and holidays, a couple days later.

    I wouldn’t watch Trump unless it was an opportunity to see him brought down 10 pegs, he is a joke and I will never support his show.

  2. says

    Recently became addicted to Celebrity Apprentice. Even went back to watch the previous seasons. Don’t much care for the regular Apprentice, but Celebrity is – in most cases – very good. Trump calls things as he sees them. Maybe because I’m in the same mind set his decision are usually dead on. And the fact that all this money is going to charity really makes it something special. I’d like to see the show continue.

    As far as the Barrack Obama comments. He’s not exactly doing a stellar job. Just look to the polls to see a majority is not overly thrilled with him. I certainly am not crazy over the guy. Trump could never be president because this country wants a rock star for Commander and Chief and not someone who is willing and needs to make the tough decisions. We are an entitled, wishy washy country. And people voted for the Rock Star and not the leader.

  3. Tha Critic says

    Why must people torture me with reality tv? Trump, please end your show. I wouldn’t watch if you gave me a gold brick.

  4. Why Watch says

    I can’t believe this show is still on. Saw the first, original, season and thought it was bad then. Can only imagine it has gotten worse with celebrities.

  5. says

    I lost my respect for D. Trump and lost interest in his show because of his rude behavior and mainly because of disrespect for President Obama. D. Trump should be ashame of himself!

  6. says

    I lost my interest in Donald Trump’s Celebrity Apprentice since his non-classy attack on President Obama’s character. I hope this is his last show. Good riddance!
