Hilarious Arnold Schwarzenegger says he’s done With ‘Apprentice,’ blames poor ratings on trump involvement, Arnold Schwarzenegger to ‘Celebrity Apprentice:’ I won’t be back.
Arnold should blame his poor ratings of himself. Donald Trump had 11-12 million viewers during its highest season of Celebrity Apprentice compared to Arnold who had 3.5 million viewers in his last episode of his first season. Any show on NBC with 3.5 million viewers would be canceled quickly don’t blame Trump.
Yes, Arnold Schwarzenegger did a really bad job as Governor of California and even worse on the Apprentice…but at least he tried hard!

Hollywood Reporter Reports
Arnold Schwarzenegger says that he will not do another season of “Celebrity Apprentice,” and he’s blaming Donald Trump’s continued involvement in the show as a factor for turning people off.
“Even if asked [to do it again] I would decline.” Schwarzenegger said in an interview with Empire magazine. “With Trump being involved in the show people have a bad taste and don’t want to participate as a spectator or as a sponsor or in any other way support the show. It’s a very divisive period now and I think this show got caught up in all that division.”
Schwarzenegger added, “It’s not about the show… because everyone I ran into came up to me and said ‘I love the show… but I turned it off because as soon as I read Trump’s name I’m outta there!’”
As Variety first reported, Trump has an executive producer credit on the show, even though he left his on-screen role when his presidential campaign began.
“NBC did everything they could to promote the show and [producer] Mark Burnett did a fantastic job,” Schwarzenegger told the magazine. “No one really knew that this was going to happen and I think that everyone was caught off guard.”
“When people found out that Trump was still involved as executive producer and was still receiving money from the show, then half the people [started] boycotting it.”
A representative for Schwarzenegger confirmed the details of the interview.
The show has struggled in the ratings this season. Trump and Schwarzenegger have had a back-and-forth on Twitter over the show’s ratings.
