Sokolsky on the Arts and Entertainment
A weekly program focusing on the arts and entertainment
Arts and Entertainment Editor Bob Sokolsky calls it a matter of the Super Bowl giveth and the Super Bowl taketh.
On the giveth end is "Undercover Boss," a new reality series CBS will present once the Super Bowl game ends. Taketh, Sokolsky says, is the planned evening performance of "Annie" at the refurbished Fox Performing Arts Center on Super Sunday. It's been cancelled because of a weak advance ticket sale.
Sokolsky calls that one more example of what happens when somebody tries to program against an American tradition like this game.
However, he adds, things look better for "Undercover Boss." a series dealing with CEOs disguising themselves as laborers going to work for their own companies to see what can be done to improve productivity.
Sokolsky sees flaws in the idea but praises the concept and its pilot episode.
