Apprentice On Mercury
NBC has once again changed the start date for Donald Trump's Celebrity Apprentice. It had originally scheduled the series to debut on Thursday, January 3 at 9:00 p.m. After learning that ABC planned to air its last new episode of Grey's Anatomy in that time period, NBC then moved it up a week to January 10. But when ABC realized that Grey's might be interrupted by news from the Iowa caucus, it decided to air a repeat of the show on that night and run the original episode a week later. Upon hearing that NBC then switched the Celebrity Apprentice start back to January 3. Reporting on the checker-board moves, Broadcasting & Cable commented today (Friday): "With all due to respect to Comedy Central, 'Indecision 2008' may now refer to when exactly NBC is going to debut its 'celebrity' version of The Apprentice.
