Should The Donald put in a bid for a 2012 Presidential Run, NBC will replace him in the boardroom of The Apprentice. New NBC Pres Bob Greenblatt said on Sunday following the release of the new fall schedule “If he decides to run for president and is unavailable to do the show, we will bring the show back and there will be somebody else sitting at the head of the boardroom table. Who that is, we’re not going to really entertain, because I’m still hoping well have Donald back in the seat.” Greenblatt also went on to say, “The show will go on in his absence,” Greenblatt added. “If we had to address the issue of who it would be replacing him, we’d have to be confident we have another galvanizing presence. I’m hopeful we don’t have to go there, but if we do, it’s too strong a franchise to not consider that.” As we reported earlier, the next installment of the Celebrity Apprentice is set to premiere midseason in early 2012. In the meantime, we’re down to the final four this season where either John Rich, Marlee Matlin, Lil’ Jon, or Meatloaf will claim victory.
