Donald Trump's Celebrity Apprentice debuts March 1 and is technically in its 8th season.  After achieving a 7th place finish in the ratings its first year and enjoying top 20 finishes the subsequent two years, The Apprentice struggled over recent seasons.

Last year's Celebrity Apprentice managed a meager 48th place, but this year could be different explains Payton O'Brien, Senior Editor of the Gambling911.com website and a loyal fan of the show.

"Well, for starters, hundreds of thousands of people are now out of work and looking for the American dream," O'Brien says.  "Seeing a bunch of celebrities flounder in the work place could provide just the perfect cure for these economic blues.  I also think that Donald Trump in many ways represents what Americans hate about corporate big business even though I don't think Trump is the problem.  Still, they may want to curse him out, envisioning one of those banking CEO's in that chair."

Oh but it's also the cast!

Gambling911.com will be rooting for one of the big favorites to win Celebrity Apprentice at Sportsbook.com, Annie Duke.

"Annie is beloved by the poker community and acts as a spokesperson for one of our premiere sponsors, UltimateBet.com," O'Brien said.  "Obviously, a lot of folks in the poker community will be tuned in."

She'll be joining a host of others that include Dennis Rodman, Andrew Dice Clay, Joan Rivers, Jesse James? - Isn't he a criminal?

So how about some ratings odds (over/under) Sportsbook.com?

O'Brien believes the show will crack the top 20 again - a rarity for televisions shows to come back after "jumping the shark".

"I believe Trump may have another winner here," she predicted.
