Season nine of Undercover Boss premieres Wednesday, January 8 at 8 p.m. ET on CBS and CBS All Access. Each week, a different company leader will go undercover to get a real look at their operation, the kind of look they might not be able to get if they just visited parts of their company without a disguise.
