survivor all stars Best & Worst post Super Bowl TV: 'Survivor,' 'Grey's Anatomy' and moreLet’s take a look back at some of the best and worst post-Super Bowl broadcasts.

In 2010, for reasons passing understanding, CBS is going with “Undercover Boss” as their post-Super Bowl show.

With “Survivor: Heroes vs. Villains” set to premiere on Thursday, Feb. 11 and past “Survivor” episodes doing extremely well in the post-Super Bowl spot (the premiere of “Survivor: Australia” got 45.5 million and the premiere of “Survivor: All-Stars” got 33.5 million), we cannot fathom why CBS is going with “Undercover Boss,” which looks like a terrible show.

If not “Survivor,” surely CBS could go with their new “NCIS: Los Angeles,” which could possibly garner ratings akin to the 2006 “Grey’s Anatomy” (38 million) or 2008 “House” (29 million) episodes. Or perhaps one of its comedies like “The Big Bang Theory” or “How I Met Your Mother,” which could maybe nab ratings like the 2009 episode of “The Office” (23 million).

But no. CBS has called “Undercover Boss’s” number. It will be interesting to see how it does in the ratings.

Check out the complete gallery to see how the past 26 years’ worth of post-Super Bowl broadcasts did.
