CBS' 'The Job' Gets Premiere Date

"Survivor" maestro Mark Burnett's latest reality TV venture, "The Job," will premiere Feb. 8 at 8 p.m. on CBS, the network said Thursday.

The series, executive produced by Burnett and Michael Davies (of "Who Wants to Be a Millionaire" renown) and Jay Bienstock, will give contestants the chance to score jobs at prestigious American companies through several rounds of elimination challenges that will be observed by a panel of executives. As representatives from companies offer the competitors positions, the candidates will have to decide if they'll take the jobs or continue on in pursuit of the big gig.
