Beginning this week, Martha's version of The Apprentice swaps places with E-Ring on NBC, with Martha's show moving to 9:00 PM ET/PT (the CNBC repeats are unaffected by this move).
I see this move more as an indictment of "E-Ring", as I suspect NBC is making this move because Martha stands a better chance against Lost on ABC at 9:00 and provide a better lead-in to Law & Order (the original series) at 10:00 PM ET/PT. I know quite a few "L & O" junkies who saw "E-Ring" (because of Benjamin Bratt, who played Det. Rey Curtis on "L & O" from 1995-'99) and said that show stunk, so I suspect that's why NBC switched the shows, especially given for instance I know quite a few fans of both "The Apprentice" and "Law & Order."
