The more Trump denounces Obama, the higher ratings for ‘Celebrity Apprentice'
Reality show “Celebrity Apprentice”
ratings showed an upward movement, since billionaire real estate developer Donald Trump
announced back in early February he wanted to run for President in 2012.
The more the business mogul appears in public and take jabs at President Barack Obama
, the larger the audience for Trump’s show.
According to the Nielsen Media Research Data
, below shows how the famous New Yorker’s reality show’s ratings climbed up, since launching his possible presidential run:
Early February, Trump is at CPAC
, and mentions that nobody knows about Obama’s childhood. "They never saw him; they don't know who he is. It's crazy,"
Early and mid March, Comedy Central
heavily promotes, “Roast of Donald Trump,”
and Season 4 of Celebrity Apprentice
debuts to about 7.9 million viewers. (Last year’s ratings was up about 5%)
The show’s ratings climb up slightly to an average of 8.13 million viewers, week of March 13.
On St. Patrick’s Day, March 17, Trumps goes head-on with a "GMA"
interview, and brings up Obama’s birth certificate and stresses on it. Trump doesn’t think Obama was born in the United States. The business mogul says, "The whole thing is very strange."
By March 20, Nielsen ratings show Apprentice's ratings up by 4 million viewers, totaling 8.17 million viewers.
Early April, ratings climbed some more, totaling 8.646 million viewers with adults 18-49.
Trump still has not made it official that he will definitely run for President, and strongly feels that he will do a better job and turn the economy around for the better.
Although, it is proven that the more the real estate mogul makes appearances and talks about how bad the United States is moving, the more viewers tune in to his show.
