Undercover Boss Is ‘The Breakout Hit of the Year’

Have you watched Undercover Boss, the new CBS reality show in which the head of a company goes undercover as a common worker at his very own company? According to the Times, the answer to that question is probably yes. In fact, ever since premiering after the Super Bowl to 38 million viewers, Undercover Boss has become "the breakout hit of the year, with the largest audience, the strongest appeal to younger viewers and the best performance against the toughest competition." We'll admit that we're not yet among the show's loyal viewers, but sending Jeff Zucker undercover could probably change that. [NYT]
