The New Celebrity Apprentice Ratings Take A Dive

The New Celebrity Apprentice premiered to a 1.3 in the 18-49 demo on NBC, well below The Voice’s fall average. The Voice dip is expected. However, the numbers are about one point below the premiere of the previous Trump-helmed Apprentice in 2015. That’s a 35% drop. I am surprised Trump isn’t already crowing about this on twitter, to be honest.

ABC’s The Bachelor prevailed in the timeslot and scoring the night’s best 18-49 rating on the broadcast networks. The season premiere garnered a 2.1 in the 18-49 demographic, off 1/10th from last year’s premiere. It was also down about a million viewers vs. the 2016 debut (6.56 million vs. 7.55 million).
