NBC'S "THE APPRENTICE" TO BROADCAST THREE-HOUR FINALE EVENT DECEMBER 16 FROM 8PM-11PM ET

Live Boardroom Hiring and Cast Reunion at Lincoln Center's Alice Tully Hall

Surprise Appearances by Fan Favorite Season One Stars

The O'Jays to Perform their Hit Song "For the Love of Money" Live

NEW YORK -- December 6, 2004 -- The time has come for Donald Trump to utter those two magical words, "You're hired." NBC will broadcast a special three-hour "Apprentice" finale event featuring the dramatic live boardroom showdown from Lincoln Center's Alice Tully Hall on December 16 from 8pm-11pm ET. Additionally, the telecast will include a live extended cast reunion where some old scores will be settled once and for all.

Other highlights will include the return of fan favorite season one cast members plus live performances by The O'Jays featuring their famous rendition of the "Apprentice" theme song "For the Love of Money."

Specific details on the final two tasks will be announced next week but one will involve the organization and execution of a polo match that benefits the Alzheimers Assocation. The other task will be to run a charity basketball tournament featuring 12 NBA stars that will benefit "Read to Achieve." Genworth Financial (formerly GE Financial) is the title sponsor for both tasks. To orchestrate these tasks, several season two cast members will return to help (or hinder) the two finalists on their pursuit of a dream job with The Trump Organization.

The O'Jays, R&B living legends with careers spanning over 40 years, have released a record 60 plus albums and still perform their timeless music to sold-out audiences all over the world. The O'Jays members are Walter Williams Sr., Eddie Levert and Eric Nolan Grant. This year marks a milestone for their career; being nominated to the Rock-n-Roll Hall of Fame, releasing a new album entitled "Imagination" and signing an unprecedented 6 album multiyear deal under the direction of Beyonce's father; record executive Mathew Knowles for the Music World / Sanctuary Urban Records Group. O'Jays hits include; "Back Stabbers", "Love Train", "I Love Music", "Use To Be My Girl" and the hit song, "For the Love of Money" that has become an enormous success as the theme song for Donald Trump's NBC show "The Apprentice".

"The Apprentice" is produced by Mark Burnett Productions in association with Trump Productions LLC. Mark Burnett, Donald Trump and Jay Bienstock are executive producers. Conrad Riggs and Kevin Harris are co-executive producers.
