And the year came out in its first couple of months already giving way to a tons of renewals.
NBC renews The Biggest Loser for a twelveth season; and it is not a big surprise. The show´s been solid for eleven runs already.
“The Biggest Loser 10” averaged a 3.1 rating, 8 share in adults 18-49 and 8.3 million viewers overall in the fall and “The Biggest Loser 11” is averaging a 3.3/9 in 18-49 and 9.0 million viewers overall so far this winter. “The Biggest Loser” is NBC’s #1 entertainment series among women 18-49 and women 25-54. The series consistently over-indexes in upscale demos.
NBC’s popular series “The Biggest Loser” launched season 11 “Couples Edition” in January with two new trainers — Brett Hoebel and Cara Castronuova who join returning trainers Bob Harper and Jillian Michaels — in an engaging new twist that has changed the game completely. Eleven teams of two came to the “Biggest Loser” ranch hoping to transform their bodies, their health and their lives. At the beginning of this season, host Alison Sweeney offered the 11 family and friend teams the unprecedented opportunity to choose whether to work out with trainers Harper and Michaels at the ranch — or work out at a secret location with the two new trainers (Hoebel and Castronuova), whose identities were initially a mystery. What ensues is a riveting ride of intense emotions, surprising turns and “can’t miss” moments as the two groups fight their weight loss battles.
“The Biggest Loser” is a production of Reveille LLC, 25/7 Productions and 3Ball Productions. Ben Silverman (NBC’s “The Office,” “Ugly Betty”), Dave Broome (“Tsunami Aid: A Concert of Hope”), JD Roth (“Unan1mous,” “Beauty and the Geek”), Todd A. Nelson (“Unan1mous,” “Beauty and the Geek”), Howard T. Owens (“MasterChef,” “The Buried Life”) and Todd Lubin (“30 Days,” “Nashville Star”) serve as executive producers.
