Designed to teach entrepreneurs to be successful, "The Apprentice: Martha Stewart" has failed.
The show will not return after next month's two-hour live season finale is aired.
Sources say that NBC has passed on ordering another round of episodes of the Stewart-hosted edition of "The Apprentice," which has struggled in the ratings since its September 21 premiere.
A spokesman for NBC stressed Sunday that the show always had been scheduled to run for only one cycle.
NBC and "Apprentice" executive producer Mark Burnett tapped Stewart to helm the spinoff in an effort to capitalize on public curiosity about the lifestyle maven after her release this year from a five-month prison term for lying to investigators in connection with an insider-trading stock probe.
