LRC pick
Messrs Bush and Hussein get the Donald Trump ‘Apprentice’ treatment
I’m curious what the Martha Stewart version will be like — she’s got enough of an image to play off of, like the Donald, that for all the genre’s faults (such as contrived personal drama) it could be likewise entertaining and educational (about a sub-culture I’m not a part of). What bothers me the most about ‘The Apprentice’ and the other shows in the genre is the phoney friendliness in the ‘teams’ when they’re all really competing against each other. But it’s a way — in comic-book-like form — to learn how much of the real business world works. So thanks, Mark Burnett, Donald Trump and Martha Stewart!
