The new CBS reality series "Undercover Boss" will make its debut in one of the most coveted time slots on television _ right after the Super Bowl.

The series follows corporate executives who slip anonymously into low-rung jobs in their companies. The first episode features the head of Waste Management as he cleans portable toilets and sifts through waste at a landfill.

The show will air on Sundays, replacing the drama "Three Rivers."

The Super Bowl traditionally gets the biggest TV audience of the year, and the show following it benefits from people who keep their TV on.

The Super Bowl, which takes place Feb. 7, will air on CBS.


CBS is a division of CBS Corp.
