    Question on Undercover Boss

    This week the CEO of DirecTV will be on Undercover Boss. We have higher priority programs recording at that time, so I will miss it. Question is, will this episode be available for download on VOD? After all it is DirecTV's CEO! If not, will CBS air it online? My last resort is bit torrent.
