Ratings: 'Celebrity Apprentice' finishes strong on Sunday

Posted on

Celebrity Apprentice might not be the brag-worthy hit The Apprentice used to be, but it pulled off the rare feat of taking the 10 p.m. hour away from ABC’s Brothers & Sisters (8.8 million) and CBS’ The Unit (9.7 million). The three-hour (!) broadcast averaged 8.7 million viewers overall, peaking in its final hour with 10.2 million. The rest of the night played out in typical fashion, with 60 Minutes (10 million) and The Amazing Race (10.4 million) pulling strong numbers for CBS, and Desperate Housewives (12.1 million) staying solid in its penultimate episode of the season. As for the rest of the weekend, Fox scored on sleepy Saturday with NASCAR (6.5 million) and CBS continued to dominate Friday with Ghost Whisperer (9.4 million) and Numb3rs (9.5 million).
