Arnold Schwarzenegger has announced he will leave his role as host of "The New Celebrity Apprentice" and blamed President Donald Trump for the show's recent poor performance.
The former California governor said he would not mind working with NBC and producer Mark Burnett again "on a show that doesn't have this baggage".
Mr Trump used to host the show and has remained as an executive producer.
Mr Schwarzenegger took over when Mr Trump began running for president but finished with poor ratings.
The most recent season ended last month and averaged fewer than 5 million viewers an episode.
Mr Schwarzenegger told Empire magazine that Mr Trump's involvement left a "bad taste" that drove away sponsors and viewers.
He told the magazine: "When people found out that Trump was still involved as executive producer and was still receiving money from the show, then half the people started boycotting it.
"I loved every second of working with NBC and Mark Burnett. Everyone - from the celebrities to the crew to the marketing department - was a straight 10, and I would absolutely work with all of them again on a show that doesn't have this baggage.
"I learned a lot, I had a great time, it was a really great opportunity, but under the circumstances I don't want to do it again."
Mr Schwarzenegger, a Republican, did not vote for Mr Trump.
Mr Trump hosted The Apprentice and The Celebrity Apprentice for 14 seasons, with a viewership of 20 million at its height.
He previously mocked Mr Schwarzenegger over his first episode which had a 43 per cent fall in ratings among viewers aged 18 to 49.
