World Brief

RIO DE JANEIRO — Brazil’s Donald Trump, advertising and PR guru Roberto Justus, debuted Nov. 4 in “O Aprendiz” on third-ranking net TV Record.

The first episode, which aired in the 10:15 p.m. to 11:15 p.m. slot, scored nine ratings points, beating the six- to seven-point average for the slot where Record usually airs Hollywood pics.
