It’s a new year, a new night, and a “new” host for The Biggest Loser. Alison Sweeney is gone but some past contestants are returning. NBC renewed the series for a 17th season but there are fewer episodes this time around. How will the venerable competition perform in the ratings this time around? Cancelled or renewed for season 18? Stay tuned.
On The Biggest Loser: Temptation Island, 16 contestants (including Richard Hatch from Survivor and Erin Willett from The Voice) are tempted with food, money, electronics, and shopping. Dolvett Quince and Jennifer Widerstrom return as trainers and former trainer Bob Harper has taken over for Alison Sweeney as host.
The ratings are typically the best indication of a show’s likelihood of staying on the air. The higher the ratings (particularly the 18-49 demo), the better the chances for survival. This chart will be updated as new ratings data becomes available — usually the next day, around 11:30am EST/8:30am PST. Refresh to see the latest.
2/23 update: You can see the rest of the latest night’s ratings.
Note: If you’re not seeing the updated chart, please try reloading the page or view it here.
For comparisons: The 16th season of The Biggest Loser averaged a 1.20 rating in the 18-49 demographic with 4.53 million total viewers.
Note: Note: These are the Live + Same Day Ratings which include “live” viewing plus delayed DVR viewing, up until 3am local time that same night. Ratings marked with an “*” are the fast affiliate ratings and will be updated with the Live+SD numbers when they are made available. Typically, networks get paid for C+3 ratings which includes DVR viewing within three days of the original airing when commercials are watched. Those numbers are rarely released to the press.
What do you think? Do you still like The Biggest Loser TV series? Would you like to see it cancelled or renewed for an 18th season?
I always look forward to the Biggest Loser each season and sorry to hear of all its troubles with former contestants. I hope NBC brings it back again because it’s a reality show that looks at a different side often neglected part of life that we should all be paying attention to.
Hope to see the Biggest Loser return. I have watched it every year
I hope that this inspiring informative and captivating show “THE BIGGEST LOSER ” returns for season 18.
Bring on season 18

Love this show, have watched it since it started, look forward to it coming for season 18
I cannot seem to find a DIRECT answer anywhere. I usually watch Biggest Loser here in Florida via Prism tv at 8:00pm on Monday evenings. It wasn’t on the past Monday and now i read online that it’s been canceled!! IS BIGGEST LOSER 2016 still on or not??
My favorite show!! Even my husband watches!!
This and the NFL are only two shows that I watch right now. So renew it for season 18 please. They are leading America in weight loss and setting good examples. In the end, it is helping those who are watching and taking action for themselves. Renew please!
I hope its cancelled as this season was awful everyone has left didnt even say were Jessie was no allison Gillian way better than Jen ug cant handle it anymore
