It seems that "The Job" just wasn't working for CBS. According to The Hollywood Reporter, CBS has pulled the struggling reality competition from its schedule after only two episodes, to be replaced immediately by "Undercover Boss."
The series, hosted by Lisa Ling and hailing from reality super-producer Mark Burnett's company (which produces "The Voice," "Shark Tank" and "Survivor"), struggled in the ratings from the outset: Its premiere garnered only 4.1 million viewers and a 0.9 in the coveted adults 18-49 demo, slipping to 3.4 million and 0.7 in its second week.
The show, which offered contestants the chance to win positions as the assistant manager of The Palm restaurant or an editorial assistant at Cosmopolitan magazine, faced heavy criticism in its debut, with The New York Times dubbing it "awful" and The Washington Post and New York Post calling it "offensive," the latter describing the show as "yet another forum for the ritual humiliation of our fellow citizens in the Roman Colosseum of reality TV, where the biggest loser wins."
No word yet on when or if the show's remaining six episodes will air.
