DAILY NEWS TV EDITOR</span>

Production on the fourth edition of "The Apprentice" is nearly done, and NBC Entertainment President Kevin Reilly said there will be some changes in the rules this time around.

He didn't give specifics about the changes, but did say there had been some discussion about the quality of the cast this season, adding that an "exciting group" was in "The Apprentice 4."

The show returns this fall in its 9 p.m. berth on Thursdays. A version with Martha Stewart will air Wednesdays at 8 p.m.

"It's actually amazing what 'The Apprentice' does every week," Reilly said, "given the handicapped lead-in ['Joey' and 'Will & Grace'] we give it relative to last season."

For example, last Thursday, an episode of "Joey" in the 8:30 p.m. slot averaged just more than 8 million viewers, while "The Apprentice" averaged more than 14 million.

Before the next version launches, though, Donald Trump will have to crown the winner of "Apprentice 3," which he'll do Thursday during a live show from New York University.

For the first time in the reality show's history, Trump will pick a woman to win. It's down to Tana from the "Street Smarts" team and Kendra from the "Book Smarts" team.

Trump said he's leaning toward one of the women, but he'll make the final decision during the hour-long show.

"I'm going to have to see how they react under pressure," he said. "Life is all about pressure."

Last season, the show ended with a three-hour finale. This time around, it's just an hour, he said, with the winner named at the end.

And in another twist, rather than present the choice of a couple jobs within the Trump organization to the winner, the two candidates will learn of the potential jobs before Trump picks a winner.

"I'm going to have them choose which one of them they'd like," Trump said. "That may have an impact on my decision."

Trump declined to disclose the potential jobs, noting he's got 100 companies and positions galore.

"I'm really happy with the season," he said. "I'm really, really looking forward to season four."

FROM TV GUIDE: Entertainment News

SITH SENSE: Donald Trump has hired Star Wars mastermind George Lucas to appear in the upcoming fourth season of The Apprentice. According to Advertising Age, Lucas will decide which team comes up with the better concept to promote the DVD for Star Wars: Episode III

Remember Troy McClain from Apprentice 1? He's going to be hosting a new show that starts next year (?) where he gives away a down payment on a home, free year's worth of mortgage payments, and some furniture. Sounds a bit like Extreme Makeover: Home Edition - the starter kit version.

Anyway, they're accepting applications for anyone who is interested and not shy about being on tv (US only?):

PS I don't really understand how syndicated shows work - it sounds like maybe this show will be on daytime tv?

You know, I was starting to think this show was on permanent life support with little hope of recovery

Can Donald "Trump" a Quadruple Firing?

by Matt Webb Mitovich

Albeit a few days early for Halloween, Donald Trump axed not one, not two or even three, but four candidates on the Oct. 27 installment of The Apprentice, as the reshuffled Excel team suffered the most mortifying loss in show history, effectively losing money for the episode's sporting-goods sponsor. TVGuide.com squeezed its way onto the Donald's day planner the following morning to follow up on the bloodbath.

You know how your version of what's sexy and your mom's version of what's sexy don't exactly reside in the same zip code? Well, just imagine your mom's version gets let loose on a reality show. Carolyn's all tarted up in the boardroom (hellooo, ladies!); Trump's asking his candidates point-blank whether they're gay or virgins; and George is

The Apprentice

Mark Burnett's grand experiment in product placement continues, with the mother of all items needing a boost in the public consciousness department. Seriously, folks, those Revenge of the Sith DVDs ain't gonna sell themselves. The teams square off on a Star Wars-themed task, and the project manager round robin begins: Since exempt Randal's forced to keep his inner Jedi on the bench for Excel, Brian reluctantly steps up to the challenge. Over at Capital Edge, an oh-so-bitter Clay commandeers the reigns from his team, although it must be said that last week's project manager Adam begged, "I personally do not want to be PM on this task." So wait, this kid doesn't know anything about sex or Star Wars? I'm so confused. With their fearless(ish) leaders in place, the teams head out to meet with execs from Lucasfilm and Best Buy. Or at least, Capital Edge does. Excel sits in traffic so long I'm pretty well convinced that Rebecca could have hobbled to the meeting faster on her crutches. It's a fatal mistake, as without the seemingly common sense advice to include Darth Vader prominently in the display, Excel can do nothing but roll over and watch Capital Edge run away with another one. Speaking of which, you know what's a better reward than spending "quality time with Bill Rancic"? Um, tube socks? A roll of postage stamps? Perhaps some sort of pudding cup? Maybe the teams should take a cue from the world of brides-and-babies and start a registry. Breakast with the Donald? Check. Helicopter ride over Manhattan? Check. Foot massage from Kelly Perdew? Nope, sorry, we didn't register for that.

But wait, we're not done. Double elimination time! Buh-bye, Brian. Sayonara, my pick to win, Marshawn. Well, it's no quadruple-whammy, but that'll do, Trump. That'll do.

Donald, Donald, Donald, what are you doing? You gotta plan ahead, big guy. Sure, these double-elimination boardrooms are a hoot. Sure, you manage to blindside me with them every time. And sure, Felisha's pink slip was loooong overdue. But as much fun as this week's one-two punch was, I'm pretty sure you didn't think this Alla thing through. The steely cool gaze, the Ivana-esque accent, the ex-stripper factor

Apprentice Pair Get Microsocked!

by Matt Webb Mitovich

What's a sure way to get yourself booted from The Apprentice? Take an inherently dry software product, like Microsoft's LiveMeeting, and make it appear even more lackluster. Such was the error message Felisha Mason and

"It's about to get crazy." Randal, buddy, I think you're greatly overestimating your potential for on-screen drama as you and Rebecca square off in the final task. But if by "crazy" you mean civilized and sportsmanlike, well, OK. I mean, come on, when the biggest wild card on your resurrected team is Toral, we can't really expect much in the way of stellar meltdowns. What about Clay? Or Markus? Or even that spunky little loudmouthed Kristi? Give us something to work with here

Wow. What a way to take a perfectly sportsmanlike finale and turn it on its ear in the last 30 seconds. My jaw's agape, my tongue tastes funny and I think I may actually have lost all faith in humanity. But wait, wait, let me start from the beginning. Ba-bomp, ba-bomp, ba-bomp, ba-da-da-da-domp ba-bomp
