Why ‘The Apprentice’ will never happen in New York

The New York Times has reported that ABC News is considering dropping The Apprentice after its long-running reality show, which has a long history in the city.

The Times reports that “the network’s decision could spell the end of a television series that has been a ratings hit since its premiere in 2007.”

The report claims that “ABC’s decision to pull the plug on The Apprentice, the most-watched show in the world, will put pressure on other networks to follow suit.”

The Times adds that NBC is “committed to continuing the show as a cable series,” and that it “has been an important part of the network’s storytelling for years.”
