Undercover Boss earned an Emmy Award for Outstanding Reality Program in 2012.  Each week, the series follows a different executive as they leave the comfort of their corner office for an undercover mission to examine the inner workings of their companies.  While working alongside their employees, they see the effects their decisions have on others, where the problems lie within their organizations and get an up-close look at both the good and the bad while discovering and rewarding the unsung heroes who make their companies run.

 

UNDERCOVER BOSS is produced by Studio Lambert, Ltd.  Stephen Lambert, Eli Holzman and Chris Carlson are executive producers.

    That was the most boring show on tv, glad it’s gone. I cancelled it anyway from my schedule after 2 eps. It was really bad!

  • Neil

    Has everyone forgot about Kristoffer Polaha starring in Miss Guided and Valentine being cancelled?

  • AniMatsuri

    Miss Guided was the ABC comedy I was thinking about. It’s amazing how this guy keeps getting work when just about everything he’s been in doesn’t last more than a 1 or 2 seasons.

  • gahks

    Yay! Now Stephanie March can go back to ‘SVU’! :D

  • gerry

    the more rookie dramas cbs cancels, the more likely it is that i’ll get more good wife. cancel away, cbs!

  • The Other Tony

    @Michael & @AniMatsuri –

    Kristopher Polaha also was a series regular on the short-lived 2008-09 CW series Valentine.

    Great points. Sadly, “Life” did not have a “several” season run. There were only 11 eps first season and 21 the second season (which was amazing to happen). A favorite show of mine. I wish there had been several. :-)

    So I guess the fact that it won it’s hour each week, had 2.43 million more viewers the first week and 1.58 million viewers the second week over the second place show doesn’t matter? Oh, that’s right. They don’t count because it’s not the right demographic! What a crock of s_ _ t!

    I love the smell of “Rage Against The Machine” in the morning, it smells like pageviews!

    “Kristopher Polaha also was a series regular on the short-lived 2008-09 CW series Valentine.”

    Sorry, but I’m not renaming the Christian Slater Hall Of Fame no matter how many failed shows that guy was in ;)

  • ILoveSitcoms

    I didn’t think it was as bad some characterized. There’s hackier crap on CBS that gets good ratings. I’ll miss that beautiful hair.

  • Kevin

    I am not surprised by this, not just due to the ratings, but also because the CSI NY last week had previews for this week, that said it would be on at a new time. I mentioned it last Friday in a post, but someone tried to say they meant the new 8 pm time slot, but I was skeptical. I think the decision had already been made.

  • Max Vrany

    @Bill Gorman, looks like some Fan Excuse Bingo squares to me!

  • chezmoi

    @tomsman
    - Thanks. :-)
    Are British Actors initially cheaper than US ones in TV series (season 1)when playing Americans?

  • ILoveSitcoms

    “Are British Actors initially cheaper than US ones in TV series (season 1)when playing Americans?”

    I don’t know whether they are or not but they’re better trained. Generally they seem to come through a better arts education so they’re more competent at a younger age. Plus they come over with experience. The American actors/actresses tend to learn more on the job and are chosen for looks (and nepotism) over acting competence.

  • Carl

    Having a show with “Jersey” in the title was not a smart thing. When I first heard of the show I assumed it was some “Jersey Shore” clone. Kind of reminds me of Cougar Town’s name problem.

  • MB

    I hate “Undercover Boss.” But it’s cheap reality. Most of the shows on network Friday are non-scripted reality and news. Friday is dead.

  • Mark

    Now fox can cancel The Mob doctor, then nbc can cancel animal practice and Guys with kids and then cbs can cancel Partners

  • RMH

    Sweet now my two Friday shows are back to back again. Plus I won’t have to choose between Touch and CSI: NY.

  • lilkunta

    I LIKED MADE IN JERSEY. What kind of ratings did it need to get for it to have survived? PLEASE CBS put the rest of the episodes filmed on demand.
