NBC Cancels Reboot of "The Apprentice" After One Episode

NEW YORK (The Borowitz Report)—In one of the more embarrassing television fiascos in recent memory, NBC has announced that it will cancel its reboot of “The Apprentice” after only one episode.

The reboot, which attempted to revive the flagging career of its star, was widely panned by critics and audience members, who seemed baffled by the network’s decision to air it in the first place.

Even more puzzling, the producers of the “Apprentice” reboot tinkered with the original’s winning format, transforming its star from a successful, nearly omniscient business mogul to a hapless incompetent beset by failure.

While a press release from NBC indicated that the network would be scheduling “no further episodes” of the reboot, a permanent cancellation could come on November 3rd, insiders say.

9. I never saw it, either - never even knew it existed

My first sight of Trump - though I vaguely knew he existed - was as a guest on with David Letterman. I almost changed the channel since he appeared to be kind of a jerk - but it turned out that Dave, who always claimed to know nothing about politics, put him in his place. He brought some ties with him that he was selling - and Dave turned them over to reveal they were made in China. And Trump was all bent out of shape about the proposed "mosque at Ground Zero," if you remember that controversy. And Dave put him in his place over that bit of nasty bigotry as well...
