Catherine Monson, CEO of Carrollton-based Fastsigns International, will be on the CBS TV series Undercover Boss tonight at 7 p.m. Monson and IÂ had breakfast on a hot day at Cafe Brazil in Addison once, so she was kind enough to have a press release (which included a bag of popcorn to enjoy while watching the show) sent to me about her new starring role.
If you’re not familiar with the series (which previously featured another local, the CEO of 7-11), in each episode the head of a company goes to work in the lower levels of the organization to observe for himself/herself how the daily operations actually work. They usually put the boss in some silly disguise (see above.) Â I’ve been told that lessons are learned, and often crying is involved.

UPDATE: Looks like they pulled the preview after the episode aired on Friday. You can watch the whole show here. Below is a clip:
