CBS has pulled their new reality competition, The Job, after two low-rated episodes. Undercover Boss will fill the timeslot beginning this Friday.
The Job debuted on February 8th to a meager 0.9 rating in the 18-49 demographic with just 4.01 million total viewers. Friday’s installment dropped to a 0.7 rating and 3.37 million, per the fast affiliate ratings.
These numbers were even worse than those of Made in Jersey, the network’s previously cancelled timeslot occupant. It’s unclear if or when CBS will run the remaining six episodes of The Job.
Undercover Boss had been slated to return on April 19th. The network ordered 13 episodes of Boss and nine have aired so far.
What do you think? Did you like The Job? Should CBS have cancelled their plans to air the rest of the episodes?
