Welcome to BLAG!, our once-a-week recap of The Celebrity Apprentice 2010, this season featuring Rod Blagojevich, Illinois’s ousted governor, currently awaiting trial on corruption charges. Airing at 8 p.m. (central time) Sundays on NBC-TV, this reality show pits formerly semi-famous (or in Blago’s case, infamous) celebs against each other to win the approval of mega-mogul Donald Trump and his daughter Ivanka. The weekly winner gets a donation to a hand-picked charity and, perhaps, a much needed career (or jury pool) boost. And at least one loser per week will be dismissed with the slogan that Trump once tried to trademark: “You’re fired.” In current promos, Blagojevich seems to shrug off any possible embarrassment. “I’ve heard that before,” he reminds us. Tune in here every Monday morning and we’ll give you the highlights—for as long as our ex-gov makes the cut.
