Apparently Lisa Lampanelli isn't aware that you don't mess with The Incredible Hulk.
"I wish I could've put her in a sleeper hold," Lou Ferrigno tells TVGuide.com.
On Sunday's episode of The Celebrity Apprentice, Lampanelli was shocked when Ferrigno successfully returned from the boardroom from the previous task. After being called "useless" by Lampanelli, Ferrigno wasn't able to prove himself in the next challenge and was fired.
Donald Trump — who apparently is not running for president — says he initially struggled to persuade household names to sign up for Celebrity Apprentice when the series premiered in 2008. Not anymore (or so says the Donald).
ABC's Charlie's Angels redux didn't work, and NBC's new take on Wonder Woman never even made it to air. But just like the feature film world — where everything from Footloose to Conan the Barbarian has been recently updated — TV execs continue to mine the vaults in search of more classic titles to reboot.

Is The Incredible Hulk next in line for a TV reboot?
Marvel and ABC are developing a show to bring the angry green giant back to television, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The previous Hulk TV series, which starred Bill Bixby and Lou Ferrigno, ran on CBS from 1978-1982. NBC also aired three TV movies with Bixby and Ferrigno reprising their roles in the late 1980s.

Cheers to The Incredible Hulk for not forgetting its roots. The surprisingly solid summer blockbuster pays dual homage to the 1978-82 TV series. The late Bill Bixby (who played the Hulk's mild-mannered alter ego) is seen in a clip from his series The Courtship of Eddie's Father. And the original green monster, Lou Ferrigno, appears as a security guard Edward Norton bribes with a pizza and proclaims, "You are the man!" Ferrigno also provides the voice of the computer-generated Hulk. Would you want to tell him he couldn't have the job?

Maybe...but possibly not at this particular time, and probably not with such an in-depth production job on episodes and extras. Oh, these TV-DVDs have certainly been in the works since 2002. But then again, the new film has been planned for a very lon...
