It was enjoyable, but not really intriguing.

Reruns of the 70's show HART to HART.

That's where they stole the idea from anyway...and at least that show had some humor in it....

I figured since NBC already tried Leno that they might as well give Williams a shot.

Sounds better than this from Variety:

Three more episode of "Undercovers" will air, on Nov. 10, Nov. 17 and Dec. 1. After that, NBC has a "Shrek" holiday special on Nov. 24, and "The Sing Off" starting Dec. 8 Three episodes of "Undercovers" will still remain; Peacock will determine whether those eps run at a later date.

"The Sing Off" is another lame contest show, but it's cheap to produce.

They were probably holding out hope that JJ Abrams wouldn't be responsible for a flop.

I liked it. Not a great show, but better than some stuff out there.

Yeah ... it never quite clicked. The "silly" spy vs spy show with both having their own pasts to hide from each other. The former love interest and hemorrhoid helpers. The screw up sister. The buried "I'm not telling them why I've really recalled them" secret storyline with no apparent development. Too many better shows out there.
