Of course this is Arnold Schwarzenegger's 'Apprentice' catchphrase

The post-Donald Trump era of NBC's Celebrity Apprentice has arrived, and with it the debut of new host Arnold Schwarzenegger's catchphrase for firing contestants in the climactic boardroom showdown segment.

The 69-year-old actor spoke his famous lines after narrowing down the chopping block to Jersey Shore's Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi, Real Housewives of Atlanta Star Porsha Williams and TV host Carrie Keagan. MGM noted he would keep his executive producer credit, and Hope Hicks, a spokeswoman for Trump, said in December that Trump would remain financially connected to the show.

And in a you-can't-make-this-up moment, following the premiere, a new game show called "The Wall", also premiered. Other than Schwarzenegger being referred to as "governor", it lacked political references, although Schwarzenegger did joke with contestants who wouldn't say who they thought should be fired that they were "ducking more questions than Congress". Who is taking the most risk, is who it really comes down to.

Entertainment Weekly, meanwhile, said it was "nice" to see Schwarzenegger "following Trump's lead in the nepotism department" by appointing his nephew as one of his advisors.

"This is a whole new challenge - something that I've never done before, so this is really wonderful", he continued.

NBC's Celebrity Apprentice returned to television on Monday night with a new host and a new catchphrase.
