Is The New Celebrity Apprentice being cancelled? NBC has cut down the TV series’ season finale from two hours to one.
Hosted by Arnold Schwarzenegger, the revamped reality show features a group of celebrities competing in a series of business-related challenges. This season’s contestants include Laila Ali, Brooke Burke-Charvet, Eric Dickerson, Boy George, Matt Iseman, Carrie Keagan, Carson Kressley, Lisa Leslie, Jon Lovitz, Vince Neil, Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi, Kyle Richards, Chael Sonnen, Porsha Williams, Ricky Williams, and Carnie Wilson.
So far, ratings for The New Celebrity Apprentice have not been stellar. With only one episode left, the series has earned an average rating of 1.08 in the 18-49 demo and 4.047 million viewers. Originally, NBC scheduled a two-hour season finale for the series. However, the network recently cut down the episode to just one hour, scheduling a rerun of The Wall at 8 p.m. ET/PT instead.
Could this mean NBC is cancelling The New Celebrity Apprentice? The network has not yet announced whether or not the show will be renewed.
The season finale of The New Celebrity Apprentice airs tonight, February 13th, at 9 p.m. ET/PT.

What do you think? Are you watching The New Celebrity Apprentice? Do you think it should be renewed?
I enjoyed the new CA and was impressed with Arnold and how businesslike he was in evaluating the teams and each persons contributions. I found he was as analytical in judging as Donald was. He had his own style and made his own way. I also had a good opinion of his partners, especially illy his young nephew. What a cute accent – could have been a chip off arnie’s block. A very accomplished young man.
Hope the program continues.
