Head of reality programming at CBS

[b][url=http://watchdiehard5on line2013.metroblog.com/]Watch A Good Day To Die Hard Online[/url][/b]. CBS's new competition series The Job pits five individuals full of hopes and dreams and clichés against one another to vie for a highly coveted position with a famous company. The series starts each episode off with host Lisa Ling (The View) discussing the abysmal job market, like we didn't already know. "The companies wield all of the power," she tells us somberly, which leaves potential employees scrambling for any opening instead of being discerning about where they take their talents. But when it comes to The Job, the companies still have the power.

They put the competitors through rigorous tests that are much more intensive than for their regularly hired employees, and in the end there is still only one winner, and four profoundly disappointed individuals. The Job resembles a hybrid of The Apprentice, with its professional slant, and, perhaps oddly, the Food Network's Chopped, where competitors are eliminated throughout the episode until a final face off. To the producers'(all long time reality-show vets) credit, The Job seems familiar, but is hard to pin down. It's not directly derivative of anything, but throws in a lot of familiar elements of other popular competition series.

I viewed the first two episodes, where job-seekers vied for positions at The Palm (as an Assistant Manager) and Cosmopolitan (as an Editorial Assistant). By the second hour I felt more comfortable with the format, but there are so many twists and arbitrary rules to the competition that it can certainly be disconcerting for viewers. After the contestants introduce themselves, we are shown a video of a day they already spent working at the job they hope to do, in a sort of trial-run test that is then graded live. The worst performer is eliminated on the spot, and the remaining contestants go through a variety of other tests.

Quizzes, skill tests like remembering names, or specifically tailored games like spotting problems in a job-related scenario -- that will eliminate the remaining contestants down to the last two. But wait! There's more! The show introduces a twist from the beginning of having three other businesses (usually smaller start-ups) who have the opportunity to poach the remaining contestants before the final interview. Does the contestant then choose to take the guaranteed job with the smaller company, or hold out for a chance at the job they came in for? There's also something to do with an envelop and a name which is revealed or not revealed, depending.
