LOS ANGELES (LALATE EXCLUSIVE) – The Celebrity Apprentice 2012 results last night had as a big an outcome on the ratings as they did on the boardroom. The Celebrity Apprentice ratings fall to their worse every two weeks ago. Last night, they posted their highest of the entire season. The flip flop comes just weeks after Trump’s son was under scrutiny for African hunting photos.
Independent Zimbabwe Conservation Task Force officials on Friday confirmed to news that they are investigating the Trump hunting photos. They claim that Donald Jr. allegedly killed an endangered leopard during a 2011 hunting exhibition. The organization is also investigating claims that the meat from the animals was donated to alleged local villages.
Two weeks ago, Trump’s Celebrity Apprentice tied its worse ratings ever in the history of the program. The show finished twelfth overall, and pulled only 5.79 million viewers.
Last night, however, Trump rebounded. Trump’s show finished tied fourth overall in the key 18-49 demographic, officials confirm to news. The show pulled 8.47 million viewers, finished seventh overall, and posted its highest overall ratings numbers for the season. Trump’s numbers were so high that they were up compared to numbers (8.04 million views) posted a year ago last week, when the show was third in the demographic and seventh overall that night. Last night, Patricia Velasquez was fired by Trump.
