From prison time to prime time - that's where Martha Stewart is headed as star of The Apprentice: Martha Stewart, an NBC spinoff of the Donald Trump reality series that will begin casting this week and could debut next fall. The series, to be produced by Trump and reality TV guru Mark Burnett, will retain the same general format as the original that airs Thursdays on NBC, including weekly elimination of candidates as potential apprentices. However, the tone and style will be "tailored to Stewart's personality and brand identity," said Jeff Zucker, president of the NBC Universal Television Group.

Reality TV works well when it tells a deeper story than merely that of a contest. It works even better when the tale rubs up against viewers' core values and beliefs. The wildly popular American Idol, which made instant stars out of Kelly Clarkson and Ruben Studdard, simultaneously celebrates and quashes the democratic notion that talent will be rewarded. The Simple Life, which last month became the hottest new series on network television, validates and tweaks our ideas about social status by allowing middle-class viewers to feel superior to members of upper and lower classes.

One day in junior high art class, the teacher caught me using a ruler on what was supposed to be a freehand drawing."And what are you using that for?" he asked.I knew I must be doing something wrong. But I was honest."I'm trying to draw a straight line.""You don't need a ruler to draw a straight line," he sneered."Maybe you don't need one, but I sure do," I said.Needless to say, I did not get an "A" in art. Or even a "B" or a "C." In fact, I've never been able to draw anything that remotely resembles a real-life object.

The major twist on this season of The Apprentice has been dividing the teams into "haves" and "have-nots" by forcing the losing team to sleep in tents outside the mansion where the winning team is living it up. On Sunday's episode, members of undefeated Kinetic muffed their task big time, meaning they not only lost but also had to move to the outdoors camp for the first time. While the just desserts were fun to watch, it was also nice to see Arrow finally win (thanks to the efforts of project manager Aaron, who is from Columbia)
