TV show description:      
Hosted by Lisa Ling, this reality show competition comes from Michael Davies (Who Wants to be A Millionaire) and Mark Burnett (Survivor, The Voice). The TV series gives candidates who’ve been selected from around the country a chance to win jobs at some of America’s most prestigious companies.

Each episode features five candidates as they participate in several rounds of elimination challenges that are observed by a panel of executives. In addition to the episode’s featured company, representatives from three other companies from related industries are on hand and have the opportunity to make on-the-spot offers to one of the candidates. If someone gets an offer, they must decide if they want to accept it or remain in the running for the featured job.

Jobs up for grabs include an assistant manager position with the Palm Restaurant Group (25 locations in the United States, Mexico City, and London) and an editorial assistant position with the legendary female lifestyle magazine, Cosmopolitan.

    I really liked the show. It was clean, interesting, and something we haven’t really seen before. Once gain, the network is canceling a good show. Good job! I guess it didn’t have enough swearing, sex, nudity and homosexuality in it to bring in the good ratings.

    Love the show and hate to see it canceled. Wish networks would let audiences have a chance to watch more than one or two shows, before they axe it.

    I enjoyed both episodes and thought the employer panels on both shows were right on with their critique of the candidates. I also found the interview tips offered during the commercials in the first episode very helpful since I am looking for full time employment.

    I enjoyed the first 2 shows and think it will catch on…….Plus it gives a lot of good advice for young people searching for employment………….I’ve been telling co-workers and friends – I think you should give it a chance to succeed before canceling it!

    I LIKED THE JOB AND I WOULD LIKE YOU TO GIVE IT A CHANCE TO CATCH ON. SOMEHOW I MISSED THE WINNER OF THE COSMO JOB ON THE 15TH OF FEB. CAN YOU PLEASE POST THE WINNER ON LINE AS I CANNOT SEEM TO FIND OUT THE WINNER ANYWHERE. I WOULD APPRECIATE IT IF YOU WOULD E-MAIL THE ANSWER. THANK YOU.

    It did so poorly on it’s Premiere (4.11M viewers), it would be a good idea for CBS to cancel it and replace it with something that will compete in this time slot.
