Looking ahead to after Passover

The next few weeks for The Apprentice:

April 10
-- Episodes 7 & 8 -- 9:00 - 11:00 (more info here)

April 17
-- No episode scheduled for this week. (Passover break!)

and this just in...

April 24
-- Episode 9 -- Assault On Battery -- 9:00 - 10:00
Donald Trump's children Ivanka and Donald Jr. watch as the candidates engage in an all-out street war while promoting one of New York City's biggest tourist attractions. One team goes for broke in an effort to end a horrible losing streak, while the other struggles with an insubordinate teammate. The winners hit the links with one of the world's best golfers, while the losers head to the boardroom where another candidate is fired.

What we know:
  • The winning team plays golf with Vijay Singh at Trump's country club in Bedminster, NJ.
  • Tarek Saab is one of the golfers on the winning team. His first time on the course, yet he drives like a pro.


Speculation:

  • Gold Rush loses to Synergy in episodes 7 & 8, following their earlier losses in episodes 5 & 6.
  • Unless Tarek switches sides (highly unlikely since a contestant from Synergy is expected to join Gold Rush in episode 8) or there's a complete reshuffle of the teams, Gold Rush will win the task in episode 9.
  • The episode's title, "Assault On Battery," is likely a reference to Battery Park in Lower Manhattan. The tourist attraction could be the Statue of Liberty.

TV Guide is reporting that after the two episodes on April 10th, the show won't return until May 1st: http://online.tvguide.com/newsearch/detail.aspx?id=5473881&&sourcetype=s&progseriesparentid=4028885&tvobjectid=100444&keyword=&more=ucepisodelist

Can you let us know where you got the April 24th airdate of Episode 9?

Actually:

That was probably done when NBC planned the finale for Monday, June 12, as the TV guide blurb is no longer on the site concerning May 1 being the next episode.

NBC had to move the finale up one week to June 5 because June 12 is going to have a Stanley Cup Finals Game (most likely Game 4 or 5) that night, and NBC has to keep nights open for that and can't have the finale opposite an NBA Finals game on ABC, which will be airing on a Tuesday-Thursday-Sunday schedule at the same time.

One other note:

The Stanley Cup Finals start on June 5 or 7 (with Games 1-2 on OLN and Games 3-7 on NBC with a latest possible date of June 19) while the NBA Finals start most likely on June 8 on ABC. If NBC didn't do the finale on June 5, they would have had to have the finale on Friday, June 9 or Friday, June 16. Even though the finale is in LA, that would have not been fair to Dan or Lee for obvious reasons.
