The reality series "Undercover Boss," for all intents and purposes, has been renewed for another season, yet it remains unclear when this CBS show will actually air. The original day the show appeared on was Sunday, but the network's series "The Good Wife" has taken its Sunday night time slot.One of the reasons "Undercover Boss" was shuffled out of its Sunday night slot was because of the NFL juggernaut, whose ratings essentially squash everything that comes near it. With the season back in swing, and ratings higher than ever from the potential lock out, "Undercover Boss" was forced to move times, even though the network was adamant about its return.
However, "Undercover Boss" has yet to premiere, and the official site on CBS shows no indication of when the series will return. Could it be that the show is actually not coming back?
Once the ratings skyrocketed from the show's debut after the Super Bowl in February 2010, they have been short of spectacular. Moving it out of its slot is another indication that the series has actually been undercover canned. This move by CBS shows absolutely no faith in a series that can't evolve from when it first premiered.
The FutureWhat CBS should do is revisit the companies they focused on. Do a series of follow-up episodes where viewers can see the result of the undercover bosses' actions. If the series is going to go under, at least give closure to viewers who invested two years of their lives. The entire next season could be dedicated to follow-up episodes. You don't need an undercover boss to realize that something is not right with the series.
