Donald Trump

NBC isn't saying "you're fired" to Donald Trump just yet.

The Peacock has renewed The Donald's Celebrity Apprentice for another season to air in spring 2010. This will mark the show's ninth cycle, the first six of which were not celebrity-based.

This season — which features Joan and Melissa Rivers, country musician Clint Black and poker player Annie Duke — NBC expanded the show's running time to two hours per episode. The show has averaged 8.6 million viewers on a highly competitive Sunday night.

"It's a valuable franchise and proven competitor," said Paul Telegdy, NBC's executive vice president for alternative programming. Trump called the show a "wonderful experience" and said he is "greatly honored that NBC has renewed us for another season."
