Cross Judge Judy with Dr. Phil and you get … Donald Trump?

Q: How many Donald Trump television shows will we be forced to watch before the network overlords understand that the man has peaked, that the halcyon days of “The Apprentice” are long gone?

A: Four

In addition to NBC’s “Apprentice: Celebrity Edition” (currently filming now in NYC), Fox’s “Lady or a Tramp,” and MTV’s “Pageant Place,” yesterday news broke that there is yet another Trump show forthcoming. Only now, the Donald is taking aim at a whole new section of the schedule: daytime.

The Hollywood Reporter reports that the new syndicated show (to be created by Reveille Prods. and Trump Prods.) will star the Bedford resident in what one source called a hybrid between “Dr. Phil” and “Judge Judy” — i.e. Trump acting as mediator for real people with financial disputes.

Hey, that reminds me, Donald: If you’re looking for any people to appear on the new show, I hear Michael Lohan might like a little of that “Apprentice” action coming Stephen Baldwin’s way!

The series is expected to air on MTV sometime next year.

Right around the time of the apocalypse, I’m told.

The show is being developed with RDF USA (of “Wife Swap” fame), and has been fast-tracked for the coming fall TV season.

Like so many of the successful new reality programs, “Lady or a Tramp” (note the clever Trump-Tramp wordplay) is a British import. The overseas the title was “Ladette to Lady.”
