To no surprise, the peacock network has renewed one of their highest-rated shows for another season. The Biggest Loser will be back for round 12 during the 2011-12 season.
Last fall’s Biggest Loser 10 averaged a 2.7 in the coveted 18-49 demographic and 7.44 million total viewers. That ranks it as the third-highest rated reality series on the NBC for the season and ties for fourth place in the demo against all of the network’s shows.
So far, the current cycle has been averaging a 3.1 in the demo and 8.68 million viewers. It’s NBC’s highest-rated reality series in the demo and the second-highest show overall, behind The Office.
Season 11 of The Biggest Loser is a couple edition which introduced new trainers Brett Hoebel and Cara Castronuova who join returning trainers Bob Harper and Jillian Michaels. At the start of the competition, host Alison Sweeney offered the 11 pairs of contestants the opportunity to choose which set of trainers would help get them into shape.
NBC will release details of its 2011-12 schedule in May but The Biggest Loser is expected to return in the fall as per usual.
What do you think? Are you glad that the show will be back for another season?
