Programming Note

programmingnote.jpgFollowing this year’s Super Bowl on Sunday, Feb. 7, CBS will premiere a new program called “Undercover Boss.” According to The Hollywood Reporter (THR), the new reality show follows corporate executives who anonymously take entry-level positions with their own companies, ostensibly to see how the other half lives. Hilarity and carefully edited personal growth no doubt ensue.

What makes “Undercover Boss” pertinent to this blog, however, is that the post-Super Bowl premiere features Waste Management president and COO Larry O’Donnell mixing with the hoi polloi. The show will follow Anderson “as he cleans porta-potties and works at a recycling plant,” says THR.
