Ben Silverman, you’ve just been made the President of NBC Entertainment — What’s your first big move going to be? Apparently the wrong one.
Variety is reporting that in his first week on the job, Silverman’s first order of business was to re-start negotiations with Donald Trump to bring back THE APPRENTICE for another
painfully boring season cycle.
First Jeff Zucker fires Kevin Reilly, the man who brought quality back to NBC (see: THE OFFICE, 30 ROCK and FRIDAY NIGHT LIGHTS). Now we’re seemingly stuck with a network president who actually wants to see Donald Trump remain on television. Talk about a bad sign of things to come.
