UNDERCOVER BOSS

CBS Friday, at 800 ET

 PTC Summary:

(CBS/reality)

8:00 p.m. (ET) Friday

Production Companies: Studio Lambert
Producers: Eli Holzman and Stephen Lambert
Creator: Phillip Lott

Undercover Boss depicts every entry level employees dream: the CEO of a large company leaves his or her corner office and does the grunt work that is the nuts and bolts of the company.  In this reality series, each week CEOs go undercover to discover what it is like to work on the company’s front lines.  As they work with their employees, they observe their business decisions in action, learn where the problems lie, and get an up-close understanding of the men and women working the daily grind for their company.

Undercover Boss is very dependent on the company involved to set the tone for content.  Some episodes have been free  from any objectionable material. Others have featured restaurant chains like Hooters, and have included sexual content and comments.  Other times, employees have bragged about being rude to customers and about smoking pot to relax.  There are always negative consequences for bad behavior, but the behavior and foul language has been involved nonetheless.  Generally, the episodes end on a high note, with the CEO giving generously to his good employees and improving the working conditions and personal lives of workers.

Undercover Boss is not recommended for viewers under age 10.
