Tuesday Ratings: Sizable Numbers for Biggest Loser

Despite its position on a fourth place network, The Biggest Loser somehow manages to buck NBC’s ratings trend. Last night’s finale saw the program’s biggest audience since 2005. The reality show also had its best demos in 2 1/2 years.

Farrah Fawcett

(You can view TV Envy’s Programming Schedule here.)

 

MONDAY 5/11)
  • Gossip Girl (CW, 8pm):  “Serena’s run-in with the police upsets Lily.” She only expected her daughter to be cuffed and shamed, not frisked and strip-searched.
  • Weaponizers (Discovery, 9pm):  Season premiere. “An RV takes on a shuttle bus, after the teams equip them with rockets, machine guns and medieval weapons in this reality series featuring vehicle face-off competitions.” The only thing missing in this equation is .
  • Two and a Half Men (CBS, 9:30pm):  “Alan and Chelsea bond, and their time together gives Charlie a needed break to do the things he loves doing on his own.” A wingman can help you score a woman….and keep her busy too.
  • Medium (NBC, 10pm):  “After Allison slips into a coma while working on a case, her spirit transfers into the body of a middle-aged man (Jeffrey Tambor).” The sexual reassignment process was much easier than the one Alexis Arquette went through.

(You can view TV Envy’s Midseason Programming Schedule here.)

 

MONDAY 3/30)
  • Greek (ABC Family, 8pm):  “Casey returns from her summer internship with secret plans to move out of her sorority house.” Unfortunately, she couldn’t wait to change her Facebook profile.
  • Two and a Half Men (CBS, 9pm):  “Charlie blows off steam by sharing a drunken night with Alan, Herb and his neighbor after Chelsea discovers nude photos of another woman on his cell phone.” Kinda makes you wonder what has on her ex.
  • Rules of Engagement (CW, 9:30pm):  “Jeff and Audrey lie to get out of Jennifer and Adam’s dinner party in favor of a better bash.” Fondue parties are so 5 years ago.
  • CSI: Miami (CBS, 10pm):  “Ryan is kidnapped and forced to betray Horatio and the team.” Cue Horatio lowering glasses in disappointment.
