    I have always liked the show. When Amorosa is on I never watch it. She spoils the show. She is mean and vindictive. She is so negative…..

    Who wants to watch an ego-maniacal orangutan and dㄧlist “celebrities” make fools of themselves? Not me. Cancel it!

    Can stand the man. Refuse to watch his show or walk onto one of his properties. Fire his ass.

    This show is entertaining regardless of Trump. The celebrities make this show. They are a diverse bunch and quirky. I always find myself rooting for someone not to get fired. The show is shot and edited very well. What would you rather watch on Sunday night, dull tv movies or boring stuff on cbs?

    NBC has already given up on the show, and it’s the only show I make a point to watch weekly. Why are they rerunning prior weeks 1 hour episode and then trimming the new one down to 1 hour? Makes no sense. Should be 2 hour new show every week. Stupid decision…
