CBS Puts Surprise Pick in the Plum Post-Super Bowl Slot

Dec 21, 2009  •  Post A Comment

CBS didn’t make an obvious choice when scheduling the post-Super Bowl XLIV slot on Feb. 7, reports The Hollywood Reporter.

Instead of giving a boost to one of its newer series, the network will premiere a new reality show called "Undercover Boss." The program follows top executives—from White Castle, 7-Eleven, Hooters, Waste Management and Churchill Downs, in the first season—as they take undercover entry-level jobs at their own companies and see how their management decisions affect the rank-and-file workers.

A network hasn’t aired a new series in the post-game slot since 2005. “Undercover Boss” will move to a Sunday at 9 p.m. slot the following week.

  2. By the apathy displayed for the common person, you indicate that you must be a corporate executive right?!?!?!??!

  3. You know, this sounds lika a very intriguing idea…I will be watching to see if it lives up to the premise.
