Boss Under Fire - Wicks Brewing Company

Richie Notar - Twitter
Boss Under Fire, which is one of the new Food Network shows announced for this year, will be on at 5pm ET today.  It was also on earlier this week on Wednesday at 11pm. Today's airing is the only other scheduled time that the show will air on the Food Network.  This is the pilot episode, and I guess they will determine later if they want to turn this into a series.  So if you were interested in this show, this may be your last chance to check it out.

The show is described as:
Restaurants nominate their terrible bosses for a makeover, and the owner must perform his employees’ jobs to realize that success starts at the top

This episode is at Wicks Brewing Company in Riverside, California and the episode description states:
Brad opened Wicks Brewing Company in Riverside, Calif., less than two years ago. It's had some success, but Brad's brash, crass and over-the-top micromanaging ways are threatening to bring the whole operation crashing down. His staff have reached their breaking point and are ready to walk out. But before they do, Richie Notar will stage a boss-intervention. Will Richie be able to transform this horrible boss into a productive and encouraging restaurateur before he's left with a business and no staff to run it?
 Only time will tell if the Food Network decides to make more episodes of this show.


  1. Don't worry if you miss it. The show was nothing special; it was dull, and it felt staged.

  2. Agreed. I tried to watch it and it was boring as heck. I doubt anyone will completely change their whole personality in 48 hours. Seriously. Ditch this series.

  3. I knew this show had to be staged just by the premise. Even so, I decided to give it a chance. I watched about 10 minutes and gave up. Thumbs down.
