The Show Gives the Boss a New Perspective on Their Company

Have you ever wondered if the CEO of the company you work could perform your job? Well, if you are looking for an exciting new reality show, you may want to check out Undercover Boss. The series premiered immediately after Super Bowl XLIV on CBS. It debuted to an audience of over 30 million viewers.

Each week, high-level executives slip anonymously within their own company and work a variety of tasks. The bosses get to see the inner workings of their company both good and bad. Plus, they see how the average Joe makes their company a great employer.

The show is based on the British series of the same name.

In the episode shown thus far, the executives have cleaned toilets, prepare coffee for the morning rush, saw a manager over step boundaries with their subordinates, and ruin hamburger buns meant to be shipped to the store. The first episode, Waste Management's Larry O'Donell was fired on one of his tasks.

I really enjoy the show. I do not watch any shows from CBS other than sports but this show is in my must see TV. These top executives are really getting a sense of appreciation of what their employees go through on a daily basis. The executives find out what is good about their company, what is bad, and what could use some improvements.

It is fitting that CBS brought Undercover Boss in their lineup. In light of CEO taking big bonuses while people are being laid off, this show helps the executives look at what their employees face on a daily basis. Times are tough these days. Undercover Boss show top executives what are the best traits of their company and why we all go to work everyday.
