NBC has been having ratings problems on Thursday nights for years. Now, they’ve decided to try moving their venerable series The Biggest Loser to that night. Will the numbers hold up or could this move cause the ratings to fall low enough for the show to be cancelled? We’ll have to wait and see.
On The Biggest Loser, contestants try to win a $250,000 prize by losing the highest percentage of body weight. This season, contestants are former top athletes who are trying to recapture their figures. Alison Sweeney returns as host but Jillian Michaels has left the show again. Returning trainers Bob Harper and Dolvett Quince are joined by Jessie Pavelka and Jennifer Widerstrom.
