NBC’s “Celebrity Apprentice” with Arnold Schwarzenegger finished last among the four broadcast networks for its season finale on Monday night, according to Nielsen overnight ratings.

The reality series previously hosted by Donald Trump tied a previous series low rating as a new “Apprentice” was named.

American Ninja Warrior Matt Iseman emerged the winner, while ’80s singer Boy George was the last to be terminated by Schwarzenegger. 

{mosads}President Trump still serves as executive producer of the struggling program and has taken to Twitter in the past to mock the former actor and two-term California governor for low ratings. 

 Schwarzenegger, 69, responded in a Twitter video suggesting he and the president “switch jobs.”

“Hey Donald I have a great idea. Why don’t we switch jobs? You take over TV, because you’re such an expert in ratings, and I take over your job,” Schwarzenegger said in a video. “And then people can finally sleep comfortable again. Hmm?”

Schwarzenegger, a Republican, endorsed Ohio Gov. John Kasich during the GOP presidential primaries. He said in a statement in October that he wouldn’t vote for Trump, noting it was his first presidential campaign not backing a Republican.

Monday night’s “Apprentice” season finale was down 47 percent among adults 18-49 in the key demographic advertisers covet most from last season hosted by Trump in 2015.
