The Apprentice

Even though the television market is currently saturated with reality shows, NBC came up with a new and interesting program. The Apprentice. The Apprentice is part Survivor, part Real World and part Battle of the Sexes -- all with a business twist. The show features Donald Trump, the City of New York, a team of men and a team of women. Each week The Donald gives both teams an assignment. The winning team is immune to having a member fired from the show. But each week, one member of the losing team must hear The Donald declare, "You're fired!" Truly captivating television.

The Apprentice will be airing its fourth episode this Thursday at 9 pm on NBC. Past episodes are periodically shown on CNBC. But, even if you do not see any of the first three episodes, it is not too late to join in the fun.
