The rebooted Celebrity Apprentice with new host Arnold Schwarzenegger has officially landed a premiere date.
EW has confirmed that the NBC reality show is set to return on January 2 at 8 p.m. ET, almost two years since the last iteration of the series aired. The new season sees the show move from New York to Los Angeles.
Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi is swapping the Jersey Shore for the boardroom: The reality TV star is set to appear on season 8 of The Celebrity Apprentice along with Grammy-winning musician Boy George, Wilson Phillips member Carnie Wilson, and SNL alum Jon Lovitz.
In the wake of Arnold Schwarzenegger replacing Donald Trump as host of Celebrity Apprentice, executive producer Mark Burnett addressed the big elephant at the room at the Emmys: What will the Terminator star use as his soon-to-be signature catchphrase?
“We will re-evaluate Trump’s role as host of Celebrity Apprentice should it become necessary, as we are committed to this franchise,” NBC said in a statement.
Celebrity Apprentice is coming back to fire more people. EW has confirmed that the reality show has been renewed for season 15 by NBC.
And the winner of Celebrity Apprentice is… us! Yes, we are all winners in any scenario that involves Geraldo Rivera attempting to recall the titles of TV series starring Lorenzo Lamas as well as Donald Trump chair-dancing alongside giant Transformer robots. But, more specifically, the real winner was Leeza Gibbons—her just reward for having to endure a season’s worth of debates and discussions about menstrual cycles and butt implants with a side order of Ian Ziering motivational speeches.
[SPOILER ALERT: Read on only if you have already watched Monday’s season finale of The Celebrity Apprentice.]
We always knew it would come to this. For weeks the Celebrity Apprentice final two seemed etched in stone, which is to say, Eric Trump’s hair. Leeza vs. Geraldo! Resistance was futile. It was always going to be them. It didn’t matter how many tasks Geraldo lost in a row or how many times Leeza politely refused to get drawn into debates and discussions regarding other contestants’ menstrual cycles—the two veteran talk show hosts were on a crash course for the title of Celebrity Apprentice which, in the grand scheme of things, means… absolutely nothing.
Lord knows I hate to complain when it comes to Celebrity Apprentice. SO I WON’T! You see, I was feeling a little blue over the fact that we had a completely Ivanka-free evening of fights and firings during this latest double-shot extravaganza of episodes.

There were seven contestants still vying for the title of Celebrity Apprentice when the night began. But after a Boardroom bloodletting in which Donald Trump fired pretty much anyone and everyone, there were only three left when all was said and done.
