It’s hard to believe that Undercover Boss has been around since early 2010. In the beginning, the ratings were really strong but they’ve come way down over the years. Will this season’s numbers be good enough for another renewal or is it time for this reality show to go? Cancelled or renewed for season seven? Stay tuned.
A documentary reality series, Undercover Boss 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.
