The premiere of NBC’s revamped “The Celebrity Apprentice” starring Arnold Schwarzenegger didn’t have much muscle in the ratings.

The show, with the “Terminator” star replacing president-elect Donald Trump, averaged only a 1.3 rating among adults 18-49 and 4.9 million viewers according to preliminary figures released by Nielsen Media Research on Tuesday.

The show is down 35 percent from its Trump-hosted season premiere in 2015. By contrast, its competition in Monday’s 8-10 p.m. time slot, ABC’s “The Bachelor,” came in with a 2.1 in the demo and 6.56 million viewers.
