Season Eight Ratings
The eighth season of The New Celebrity Apprentice (formerly just The Celebrity Apprentice) averaged a 1.05 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 3.97 million viewers. Compared to season seven of The Celebrity Apprentice, that’s down by 44% in the demo and down by 37% in terms of total viewers. Learn how The New Celebrity Apprentice stacks up against the other NBC TV shows.
Although Schwarzenegger’s first season of The New Celebrity Apprentice has dropped off in the ratings, it is still pulling in numbers comparable or superior to some of the network’s scripted programs. If the ratings continue to fall, I reserve the right to change my mind. Right now, though, I suspect NBC will renew The New Celebrity Apprentice for season nine. It can’t be all that expensive to produce since the corporations the celebs work for fund the challenges. As we know, television is all for the love of money. And they call me a bird of prey?
