CRITIC’S CORNER

By Sarah Rodman

All-Star Celebrity Apprentice
9 p.m., Channel 7

Fourteen previous contestants return for 15 more minutes of fame and to raise money for charity, including Gary Busey, Trace Adkins, Marilu Henner, La Toya Jackson, Stephen Baldwin, and Omarosa (pictured). To get a sense of how this season will go, here are a couple of quotes from the cast’s recent chat with reporters at the Television Critics Association press tour. Omarosa: “[Lil] Jon had to break up all of the fights between me and crazy ass La Toya Jackson.” Busey: “The reason I did the show is I didn’t have anything else to do.”

Red Widow 9 p.m., Channel 5

Judging by the incessant ads during the Oscars for this new series, ABC really wants you to watch this show. Star Radha Mitchell spoke to reporters at the recent Television Critics Association press tour. “Marta Walraven is pretty much my dream character to play,” she said. “I think [executive producer] Melissa [Rosenberg] wrote a woman who has a duality, which is very complex. Basically she’s living the life of a soccer mom and is suddenly dragged into a world that she’s been trying to avoid pretty much her whole life, when her husband is assassinated in relation to a drug incident. And in the process she discovers things about herself and talents that she didn’t know she had.”
