NBC has still got the Olympics this whole week.
Monday - The Bachelor on ABC (a special "The Women Tell All" episode), One Tree Hill and Life Unexpected on The CW, 24 on Fox.
Tuesday - Lost and The Forgotten on ABC, American Idol on Fox.
Wednesday - a 2-hour American Idol on Fox (so no new episode of Human Target).
Thursday - The Deep End on ABC, Survivor on CBS, a special American Idol followed by a new Kitchen Nightmares on Fox (prempting Past Life).
Friday - Blades of Glory (The W at Amazon) and 20/20 on ABC, Smallville on The CW, the 41st NAACP Image Awards on Fox.
Saturday - Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix on ABC, 48 Hours Mystery on CBS, Cops and America's Most Wanted on Fox.
Sunday - America's Funniest Home Videos, Desperate Housewives, and Brothers & Sisters on ABC; 60 Minutes, The Amazing Race, Undercover Boss, and Cold Case on CBS; two episodes of 'Til Death on Fox; and a special preview of The Marriage Ref ending the night on NBC.

Undercover Boss is obviously a bona fide hit. I have to say I didn't see that coming. Anyone watching it? Is the point to see the CEO struggle?

No, think the point is to make the boss more in touch with the company they work for. I had a discussion about this the other day with a co-worker & the general feeling is that people at the top levels are so out of touch with the lower end of the company that it's ridiculous. I saw the first episode, I plan on catching more if it continues to be on and from that number it will at least be around this season.

I think it's really convenient that all the bosses so far have run into people with health problems and then do something for them at the end of the episode to give the audience a "feel good" moment.

I'm sure the companies wouldn't be profiled if they wouldn't be shown in a positive light, or at the very least spin things (Hooter's "Reindeer games" manager, "7-11 is a dead end job" guy) at the end of the episode.

UB is definitely a feel-good sort of show. Lots of good people finally getting their reward from the suddenly kind-hearted and understanding boss.

That said, the Hooters dude seemed legitimately surprised to find out that people don't like Hooters and think it is trashy and he seemed REALLY pissed off by the sleazy manager.

Argh, I was so proud of me for noticing something like that as well. I'm usually mince at noticing clues/predicting stuff in these kinda shows. Still am as it turns out!
