CBS will be signing up more world travelers and CEOs for its hit reality series, Amazing Race and Undercover Boss (pictured), for the 2011-2012 season.

The network’s Sunday night reality lineup will see the 19th season of The Amazing Race, produced by Jerry Bruckheimer Television and Earthview Inc. in association with ABC Studios and Amazing Race Productions.

The seven-time Emmy Award-winner for Outstanding Reality Competition Program is also a consistent ratings winner, with 12 million viewers watching the most recent fall edition.

 

CBS will also feature a new season of Undercover Boss, from Studio Lambert. The reality series follows high-level corporate executives as they anonymously perform lower rank roles in their own companies. It premiered last February and in its first year earned an Emmy nomination for Outstanding Reality Program.
