NBC Tuesday two-hours 'The Biggest Loser' No. 3


From 8-10 p.m. ET, “The Biggest Loser: Couples” weighed in with a 2.6/7 in 18-49 and 7.1 million viewers overall in a time period that included competition from ABC’s “Dancing With the Stars,” CBS’s “NCIS” and “NCIS: LA” and Fox’s encore of “Glee.” 

From its first half-hour to its fourth, “Biggest Loser” grew by 30 percent in 18-49 rating (to a 3.0 from a 2.3) and by 17 percent or more than 1.1 million persons in total viewers (7.9 million vs. 6.7 million). 

At 10 p.m., “Parenthood” (1.9/5 in 18-49, 4.8 million viewers overall) tied for #2 among ABC, CBS and NBC in adults 18-49 and was #2 outright among adults 18-34, women 18-34 and women 18-49 in a time period that included competition from ABC’s premiere of “Body of Proof” and CBS’s “The Good Wife.” 

These “Parenthood” results are likely to increase substantially when Nielsen issues “live plus seven day” results for the week of March 28-April 3. 

Through the season’s first 24 weeks, “Parenthood” added an average 41 percent to its 18-49 rating when going from the previously reported “live plus same day” ratings to its “live plus seven day” results, the #2 percentage increase among all primetime series on ABC, CBS, NBC, Fox and CW.
