Arnold Schwarzenegger is the new host for Celebrity Apprentice. But it appears that things aren’t going so well with respects to ratings and viewers. Here is what Deadline has to say;
It was a bumpy ratings start for NBC’s Celebrity Apprentice with new host Arnold Schwarzenegger, which opened its eighth season — and first without original star Donald Trump — with a 1.3 rating in adults 18-49 and 4.9 million viewers. That is down a big 46% from the most recent Season 7 debut two years ago and ties an all-time Live+Same Day low for the celebrity version of the business-themed reality series executive produced by the President-elect.
I can’t say I’m too bothered by this because I really don’t care to see Arnold waste his time with this kind of stuff. I know a lot will be interested in the business genius Arnold can produce, you can tell that from his book… but still. Too much fucking tie business!
It should also be noted that he was going up against stiff sports competition for this show.
Now, aside from that, certain quarters are calling Arnold’s new hosting of the show ‘sexist’. If you can believe it. I haven’t watched the first episode but they’re accusing him of belittling women in a bigoted manner. Although I haven’t seen it, I’d strongly suspect that this charges are totally false, especially coming from a toxic website such as The Daily Beast.
I’m guessing that the cutthroat world of entrepreneurship is just too much for some and they’re using their usual fail safe of trying to personalize and politicise their own failings. Arnold Schwarzenegger is not a fucking sexist! Simply put, you need to have your shit together if you want to impress a guy like that, on a show like this!
