CBS is going back undercover. Today, the network announced they’ve renewed the TV series Undercover Boss for a ninth season for the 2017-18 season.
The long-running reality show follows members of major corporations’ upper management as they go undercover in their own company to get an idea of what it’s like to work as a lower-level employee.
A renewal for Undercover Boss is hardly a surprise. The show’s been running for quite a while now on CBS with the same format and ratings have been fairly consistent. Season eight is currently averaging a 1.01 in the 18-49 demo and 5.74 million viewers.
While the numbers have dropped, CBS seems content to keep Undercover Boss around for another season. As they have in the past, the network will likely continue to use the show as a “utility player” — filling in gaps in their schedule as needed.
What do you think? Do you watch Undercover Boss? Will you watch season nine?
We love under cover boss and would love a new season for 2019. Please give us more seasons.
One of the most predictable and banal shows on television featuring ‘benevolent,’ very wealthy, bosses giving away money and prizes to ‘deserving’ poor workers. I find the premise and the show disturbing, which is why I stopped watching during the first season. I am surprised it is still on.
Yes it should be renewed for a ninth season it is such a great show!!!! I think more CEO’s and executives should see how their major companies are doing like Dave n Busters I would nominate this company for the show for sure
Yes, I like Undercover Boss and hope that it will continue. It should be a must watch for families. It shows that you never know who is watching you and that one must always do their best. Or, if they don’t like their job to find another. It brings out the best, showing how both employees and employers can learn from one another in improving one’s business.
Yes!! We definitely will continue watching Undercover Boss. Our grandsons enjoy watching it and it is ONE show we can watch with them when they visit us. There are a lot of shows out there that are so inappropriate for them!!!
Can’t wait for the new season!!!
I could care less about. the amazing race. or a newer version of macgivur. the best reality show is undercover boss. I love how CEOs go under cover in there company. to interact with the employees. and learn how do work they have never done before. listen to there problems. and help them solve. through financial assistance.
Undercover Boss is,in my opinion, is the only true “reality” show! Love this show,let’s keep it going!!
I really enjoy this show. You came to Omaha once for Oriental Trading Co. I have several family members who have are are still working there. The Celebrity editions were fabulous! First of all, Darious Rucker was amazing! LOVE HIM!!! And the fact that our granddaughter Jocelyn was featured – Yah we are still flying high here. She was so floored. He was so sweet to her and the other musicians. And I am a foodie, Marcus Samuelson!!! Loved this show. OMG, yes bring this back, my husband is a devout viewer since the beginning. I know that there are… Read more »
Enough with the freaking reality shows. Put something better on T.V. I am so freaking sick and tired of these horrible shows. When they’re on, I’ll switch to netflix. At least they have good stuff on.
How can any company NOT know about this by now, especially with cameras following them? I have enjoyed some of the shows but my fave part is skipping to the reveal to see how they get rewarded.
I watch some episodes based on the description. Definitely skipping last 2 episodes this season.
