Even within the TV Universe, Donald Trump has his own TV show. And I'm assuming it's 'The Apprentice'.

I'm glad to see that at least one fictional TV character thinks 'The Apprentice' is a crock o' bleep:

"There's always been a struggle between art and commerce. But now I'm telling you art is getting its ass kicked. And it's making us mean. . . . It's making us cheap punks. People are having contests to see how much they can be like Donald Trump. We're eating worms for money. . . ."
- Wes Mendell
'Studio 60'

The bad-hair gasbag didn't fare much better on 'My Name Is Earl' this week. Earl Hickey pointed out to his brother Randy that Trump was just as fictional as the Beverly Hillbillies. To Earl, if you're on TV then you're fictional.

And his mention of 'The Beverly Hillbillies' isn't a Zonk. The Hickeys have shown before that they're not up on the news and current events. So he probably didn't know that the Clampetts really do exist in his universe.

He was probably referring to the theatrical movie based on the lives of the Clampetts, which he must have assumed was fictional.
