NBC to O.J. -- Like You, We're a Buzzkill

4/24/2008 10:35 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

O.J. SimpsonDonald Trump might be thinking about taking a stab at bringing O.J. Simpson in for the next season of "Celebrity Apprentice," but NBC wants nothing to do with it. Can you blame 'em?

A source close to the Peacock tells TMZ that NBC has not -- and never was -- considering casting O.J. on the show.

Looks like instead of "You're fired!" the Juice will just have to settle for "You're guilty!"

NBC is a joke, their ratings have fallen. NBC is so desparate that on their sister station MSNBC, they now have former ESPN sportscaster Keith Olbermann doing POLITICS!! WHAT A JOKE! This guy has no idea about politics and he's giving voters advice??!! The news isn't even real news anymore on these networks, it so biased that I and alot of other folks won't watch, we need credible news and information. The prime time programming sucks. I bet if the ratings get to bad, they will hire Simpson, its all ratings and lies for NBC.

NBC controls Donald Trump? It is too bad NBC decided to back and promote "the apprentice" after Mr. Trump called Rosie O Donnel "A fat Pig." Does this mean NBC doesn’t like overweight celebrities also? -I guess Donald wanted a way out, so an un-named source tells the media, that they were never considering casting O.J. on the show. Instead of calling the show "the apprentice," they should just call it NBC.

NBC has been bought and paid for for a long time now. It's finally to the point that people have opened their eyes and realize it. Just listen to the big stories headlines at the beginning of the TODAY show and you will see the biasness. They always have stories that no one cares about. Although, Tim Russert is respectable and knowledgable, which is more than I can say for puppets MATT and MERIDETH. A newscast is supposed to be neutral, which NBC is not. Thats why NBC now stands for "No Body Cares". Of course, this is my 2 cents, which is all I have left after putting gas in this morning.

We know who is unethical    

This is quite a dilemma for NBC. Putting OJ on would be a ratings boon but at the same time it would throw NBC into the gutter ethics wise. But then again, NBC was never known for it's ethics (Dateline and exploding Fords). I hope NBC does this. I say bring OJ onto Trump's THE APPRENTICE.

What is wrong with Donald Trump (mid life crisis perhaps) no one wants to see OJ the murderer on TV or anywhere else, he shouldn't even be walking among us.

I used to look up to Donald Trump. But if he is THAT GREEDY, to wamma make money off a killer, Then I WILL NEVER WATCH ANY SHOW WITH HIM. I WOULD NEVER GO TO ANY OF HIS CASINOS, HOTELS AND SO FORTH.

To try and make money off of a KILLER, is as sick as OJ. I hope NBC will NEVER let that happen.

And YES he is a killer. I don't care what the jury said. It would take a fool not to see the truth.

Thanks

The Mezzaluna closed in 1997 and was replaced with a Peet's Coffee & Tea. - A year before Ron Goldman was killed; another employee of Mezzaluna was stabbed to death similar to Ron. Marsha Clark suggested to the jury that this unsolved crime, a year before, may have been related to OJ. - All that year, everybody respected OJ, and never suspected he had anything to do with his possible involvement in this unsolved murder.- since OJ’s wife was having sex with all the employees, including the manager, pictured on the cover of the national enquire.
