CBS fires 'The Job'

“The Job” just got fired.

Lisa Ling

After just two episodes, the reality competition has been pulled from CBS’s lineup. “Undercover Boss,” which the “The Job” replaced in the lineup, instead will appear at 8 p.m. Friday night in its place.

Lisa Ling (“The View”) hosted the show. Mark Burnett (“Survivor”) was an executive producer along with Michael Davies and James Sunderland.

“The Job’s” first episode had a weak 4.1 million viewers and a 0.9 rating in adults 18-49 Feb. 8. On week 2 the show had just 3.4 million viewers and a 0.7 rating in the 18-49 demo, according to Fast National ratings.

The series, from Embassy Row, Sony Pictures Television and Mark Burnett Productions, watched a group of contestants trying to grab “a dream job at their dream company.”

It is unknown whether the last six episodes of the series will air.

“Uncover Boss” shows senior executives of companies working uncover in their companies to see how the other half live.

Fellow freshman drama “Made in Jersey” also only lasted two episodes last fall. “Made in Jersey” starred Brit Janet Montgomery (“Human Target”) as a street- wise New Jersey lawyer trying to make it at a big New York City law firm.
