'Apprentice' Start Date Shifted — Again

(FROM VARIETY) – A day after pushing back the debut of Celebrity Apprentice, NBC has reversed its decision and will premiere the show on its original start date, Jan. 3. The Peacock initially moved Apprentice to the following Thursday, Jan. 10, to avoid ABC's season finale of Grey's Anatomy. However, ABC has decided to instead air the Grey's finale on Jan. 10 (in part to avoid Iowa caucus preemptions on Jan. 3), prompting NBC to switch back to its original plan and bow Apprentice on Jan. 3. Variety reports that the cat-and-mouse game may continue, as it's possible that ABC will move the final Grey's episode back to Jan. 3. (Variety)
