The Question, Tuesday 10/15/13: Will The Biggest Loser Make NBC a Timeslot Loser?


Tonight NBC brings back The Biggest Loser a week later than originally intended. While some thought the delay might mean NBC was prepping an emergency move to Thursday, instead TBL will get its planned Tuesday timeslot. It's coming off a strong winter season which premiered to a 3.0 on a Sunday, ended at a 2.7, and had a bunch of very low 2's in the middle. I say it goes way lower than last year's premiere because there's no "Jillian's Back!" inflation, but The Biggest Loser is the slot's only unscripted option, and airing alongside lead-out The Voice could provide positive synergy.

Over/Under: 2.25.

I absolutely *despise* the format. Given that, I have no choice but to go Under; I'd feel bad cheering this show in ratings.

The brutal competition, and it being an NBC show that isn't The Voice or a lead-out of The Voice, just helps me justify that. Though my initial instinct was Over. Hope I don't wish I'd gone with it.

Over...2.4.

Spot said...

Excellent line if I might say. Over

I don't think the competition is TOO bad with ABC and CBS decreasing since premiere week and Fox weak. Coming off a strong season too and possible halo effect from The Voice, I say over.

Over.

I'll say OVER.

Over. It should be able to manage 2.4.

Everything reality that's not The Voice is crumbling. I don't think Biggest Loser has enough heat to turn that around, even w/ proximity to The Voice. Under.

Spot said...

Under at a 2.2

Under.

I'll say Over at 2.6.
