Trump is probably picking up all of the costs just so his ego doesn't get bruised.

Cool...I'm for one am pleased to hear this. It was one of the few shows that my wife and I looked forward to every week. Sure, the last few seasons weren't the best, but for the most part it was entertaining to a degree.

I like the show, but he really needs to kick off his kids as the assistants, it was so much better with the old guy that probably is dead by now and the blond that he fired from his company.

At this point, there should be enough former winners to use them as assistants.

Actually, since I gave up on this show after season 2, are all of them even with Trump at this point?

We lost George ten years ago. It was through the magic of video tape and special effects that he was able to "live" again...

Um, George appeared in last season's finale.

If they start filming this fall, I can see this airing sometime after football season ends. There were rumors of Vegas, Chicago or Miami being new spots.

It would be nice if each task wasn't such a blatant infomercial for that week's sponsor. That, more than anything, has made the tasks FF fodder.

Odd seeing as how Trump "quit".

The show is done, it's spiraled down to one big infomercial and the "rewards" are always so lame that it just ruins whatever flow the show could have in a given week. The kids are awful and add nothing to the show and I'm not even sure what Donald adds anymore.

The show should have been over after LA, but I hope they bring it to Chicago or back to NYC. I don't have anything against Los Angeles, but it lacked the sort of "hit the streets" feel that many of the best NYC tasks had. There was momentum and at least some minor tension during the majority of the best tasks during the NYC seasons, but the Los Angeles tasks were dull and the episodes lacked flow. There wasn't even really a "finale" in the way that they had in past seasons for the LA season, if I remember correctly.

George and Caroline leaving were also major losses to the series, as at least one could count on Caroline to laugh to herself when the contestants were screwing up or George to make an unexpected comment. George may be old, but at least he had some personality and energy, which is more than I can say for either of Trump's kids.

The only way I'd watch is if The Donald got a makeover in the first episode.

I met the gentleman once. His hair smacked me in the face and called me Sally. Very rude.

It'll be interesting to see their definition of the word "celebrity."
