'Undercover Boss' season finale Recap: 1-800-Flowers wilts our sympathy


The season finale of Undercover Boss told us the thorny story of 1-800-Flowers. The show pumped up a rivalry between the two brothers who head up the company, Jim and Chris McCann. Jim (the CEO) asked Chris (the company president) to go undercover. Why? Because as founder of the company and Jim's big brother, he likes pushing Chris around. Chris complied meekly, but then told the camera when we were alone with him, 'I want to run this company one day - that's my plan.' Really? What does that plan involve? Waiting until Jim dies, or beating his big brother senseless with a large, $100 bouquet?
