Celebrity Apprentice 2015 - tonight. Real Housewives Fans and others - who's watching?

Returns tonight with 16 new C-listers (and I'm being generous) competing in nominally business-related tasks to raise money for their respective charities, although the wins often come down to which contestants have the most pals willing to shell out major bucks for questionable foodstuffs.

I don't have high hopes for this season, which was taped nearly a year ago and has been on NBC's shelf ever since, but then again, I never expected to enjoy this show in the first place. NBC sent out the first half of the first episode for review; the challenge has the two teams making and selling pies. It's a fairly typical brew of rampaging ego and second-guessing, with a special guest appearance by Cake Boss Buddy Valastro, who picks the best tasting pie for a special bonus.

This year's cast is no better or worse then previous seasons, with the usual assortment of athletes, past-their-prime actors, and refugees from other reality shows. (Side note: I showed a photo of the cast to my husband, who, granted, once asked me in all seriousness, "What's a Brangelina?" and he was only able to pick out Geraldo Rivera and Gilbert Gottfried, and mistook "The Deadliest Catch" star Sig Hansen for Gary Busey.)

Who are this year's best bets? Based on my formula — smarts times grace under pressure divided by craziness — and the portion of the first episode available for viewing, I might Kay money on New Jersey's own Kevin Jonas, Olympic gymnast Shawn Johnson, and 'Real Housewives of Atlanta" star Kenya Moore. Rivera may be the one bringing the nuts — there's a shot in the season preview of him rushing about in his undies, no pun intended. (Also look for a very uncomfortable exchange between Cosby kid Keshia Knight-Pulliam and Moore about Knight-Pulliam failing to call on Bill Cosby to donate.)

I'll be watching. This show has always had D listers so that doesn't bother me. I will watching Kate as I don't really like her but find her fascinating (not sure why).

Wrong is still wrong just because you benefited from it.

I like Donald Trump. He is one of a kind. I really like DT Jr. (he is the funniest person I follow on Twitter).

Celebrity Apprentice

The Good Wife

Downton Abby

I only have a dual tuner TiVo. So DA is going to have to be recorded at 3 am ;o)

My money's on Kevin Jonas and Shaun Johnson. Brandi Glandville, Kenya Moore and Kate Gosslin will be interesting...

This was filmed a loooong time ago. I remember when Kate Gosselin did that Wedding Dress thing for charity. She posted about it on twitter. It was probably last winter.
