The season finale of NBC’s The Biggest Loser was Tuesday night’s big winner — it earned an extremely high Adults 18-49 rating of 5.0, and its average viewership grew a whopping 24 percent over the course of two hours. As a result, the network’s 10 p.m. offering, The Jay Leno Show, enjoyed its highest viewership in weeks. And yet! CBS drew in the highest average viewership for the night with its slate of repeats. The return of ABC’s Better Off Ted performed poorly — that funny show cannot catch a break. In what universe does Portia de Rossi plus genetic engineering not equal funny? Join EW’s Ken Tucker in his petition to ABC to throw BOT into its Wednesday night comedy block alongside Modern Family and Cougar Town.
