Tuesday, January 5, 2009: The Biggest Loser

Tuesday, January 5, 2009: <I>The Biggest Loser</I> Two seconds after the conclusion of last season, we're back with a new, even fatter one. You remember Shay, right? A last-season contestant, was the biggest the show had ever had at 476 pounds? Yeah, she's nothing compared to what they've found this season: a pair of twins who weigh in at 500 pounds each, and one guy named Michael who bests them all with a starting weight of 526 pounds. Either we're all getting fatter as a nation, or The Biggest Loser is getting better at casting.

We're also back to the irritatingly misnamed "Couples" teams this year, as the pairs aren't all romantic couples, but brothers, father and daughters, cousins, etc., but that's not really a big drawback. I do prefer when people compete on this show all alone, but the teams seasons still work. The Biggest Loser doesn't exactly reinvent the wheel, but it is by far one of the most satisfying reality competition shows on television (well, aside from how unhealthy the show has been revealed to be for its contestants, but... that's behind the scenes, I guess), no matter what the little changes are from season to season.

The Biggest Loser premieres on NBC tonight at 8 PM, but if that's not your thing, ABC has alternating new Scrubs and Better Off Ted episodes from 8-10 PM, CBS has new NCIS installments of both franchises, plus a new Good Wife at 10, and MTV has a new, gloriously depressing Teen Mom ep at 10 as well.
