The Apprentice

I have to admit that I really liked The Apprentice (that's a reversal off my initial impression).  Unfortunately, it really fell short recently when it used interviews as a filter.  In short, the interview process clearly selected the wrong people (the two of the four that underperformed throughout the show).  I thought the whole point of the show was to put candidates through difficult “real-world” tests to demonstrate their performance.  The people that did well in these tests wouldn't have made it through the first round interviews, which demonstrates how flawed the typical process used in job selection is.
