Maybe I'm in the minority now, but I still love this show. When it comes to reality shows, I dig the ones with a lot of flavor from the setting, especially when the setting is New York City, and the ones where the contestants are doing something practical and interesting, as opposed to something like eating bugs or seducing each other. (I also like Project Runway, Top Model, and Queer Eye for the same reasons.)

Looking forward to tonight's premiere.

Doesn't this season take place on the west coast? Also, Ivanka Trump (his daughter) subs in for Carolyn at times this season.

Well, you're not completely alone...I still like the show a lot too. The tasks aren't always perfect, but I like seeing how some of the contestants occasionally apply real world skills towards them (finding the right audience, cutting deals or last season's "swipe" of the bullhorns).

Having said that, I really dislike the screen time The Donald gets. It's not just the self-congratulatory bits or the blatant weekly promotions of other companies...It's his complete and utter lack of being able to see shades of grey ("Admit it, you hate her guts!" - you can disagree or not get along with someone and not necessarily despise them...Sheesh!). Yeah I know, it's a TV show and he's being prodded to act that way. Still makes for the worst parts of the show though.

I even watched the Martha version. Had its moments, but it also suffered because of the host and the cross-marketing efforts.

Well OK, but only if you grunt loudly when good looking women show up.

Either this season or next season takes place in LA. I forget which. This season also features contestants from other countries.

I was interested in seeing the Martha version, but they barely promoted it and I didn't realize it was on until it was almost over. I only caught the later episodes of the last Donald version, too. At least there have been some ads for this upcoming season.

I'm still watching too. I think I will stop watching when he finally candidly explains why he keeps his hair that way when he know that everyone in America makes fun of him for it. I think this is a bigger mystery than anything on Lost.

I also wanna know why he constantly yells his words, no matter what the situation.Posted Image

Isn't it obvious? It gets him more attention! Posted Image He even makes fun of it himself when he appears on Saturday Night Live.

I think last season was much better than the 3rd and even the 2nd. Hopefully 5 keeps moving in the same direction.

When is the first episode? Is it tonight?

He made fun of it during Season One of the Apprentice when he was at a construction site and the wind blew it all over the place, he said; " They say my hair isn't real but you can see that it is" or something similar. I like Trump, he seems like a regular guy most of the time.

I'm still watching although I doubt it will be as good as the first or fourth seasons.

Apprentice 6 is the one in LA--and viewers can vote on an Olympian to get a spot on the show.

Well in that case I would like them to pick Shani Davis just so he can say something stupid. Posted Image

Too bad The Closer got the boot. Why couldn't she just shut her mouth?

Thank goodness for dual tuner DVR's!

Interesting start, blah blah task, ignorance prevails in the boardroom like always. Don't these people watch the show?

I loved the Russian during the boardroom.

There are some very attractive women this season. If the Apprentice doesn't work out, they could always fall back to a job as "Money Case Holder" on Deal or No Deal. Posted Image

I LOL when he made the exact same comment tonight, no more than 5 minutes into the show.

The hair actually has more personality than The Donald himself. Posted Image

Can't watch because of "24"
Does MSNBC still re-run the show?

I have heard the board room meetings at the end are much longer than they show.

Yes, stupidity reigns again in the boardroom. Why Tarak brought that one guy who he was "friendly" with.
Bring back John Doe! Or at least resolve the cliff-hanger with a 2hr movie or as an extra on a dvd release.

That's true -- the boardroom meetings go on for hours. I talked to Bradford Cohen, the guy who got fired for giving up his immunity in season 2 (or was it 3?), and he told me that he argued that one point with Trump for over 45 minutes!

I had some stuff going on and only managed to catch snippets last night, so I hope that MSNBC re-runs it tonight. I can't imagine that they wouldn't (unless they're going to show it on a different day).

From what little I heard, Summer made a good point about not calling restaurants during mealtimes. That is just a complete waste of time.

You usually can catch extended cuts of the boardroom on the official site, along with other unaired snippets.

Will,

I think MSNBC will be airing the episodes on Wednesdays.
