Ratings: NBC's 'Biggest Loser' is a winner in Jay Leno's slot

Posted on

President Obama’s address on Afghanistan interrupted Tuesday night’s 8 p.m. hour, after which CBS continued to pull in the highest average viewership with two repeats and The Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show. Work it, girl (Give a twirl!) NBC earned the highest Adults 18-49 rating for the night by far, though, with a later-than-usual installment of The Biggest Loser that handily outperformed The Jay Leno Show‘s usual numbers from 10-11 p.m. Viewership for the debut of ABC’s revamped Scrubs fell off 33 percent from the series’ season 8 debut this January.
