The final nationals are typically released within 24 hours of the programming or, in the case of weekends and holidays, a couple days later.

i think you should put the ceo of geico on tv may be if he she’s how his company is being runned and hurting all the young people and they show they don’t care they will do something and they won’t have ll these class action suits against them like they are hurting my son. He is a young man and new to ins and the y don’t care just take money and no help. wonder if the CEO knows or just don’t care.

PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE bring UNDERCOVER BOSS back to TV. I miss it sooooooo much. Its inspiring, interesting and most of all, see how CEO’s like to share their financial success with their employees.

Please continue “Undercover Boss” with one change. The stale line that the undercover boss is a candidate is auditioning for a reality tv show needs to be dropped and replaced. If people watch this show they know that it’s a real undercover boss and the reality show audition is a fake.

I would be really upset if CBS cancelled Undercover Boss. I find this show to be very entertaining and having worked for over 35 years in the retail marketplace from positions of associate to manager, it relates real-life situatuions I feel are helpful for those who are in these types of fields.
