'Biggest Loser' Premiere Wins Tuesday

September 12, 2007 11:38 AM

Waking up late-summer viewers with a bona fide fall season premiere, NBC won the night with the two-hour debut of “The Biggest Loser.”

The fourth-season outing earned a 3.1 preliminary rating among adults 18 to 49, matching last year’s number.

CBS came in second for the night, with “Big Brother” (3.0) a very close runner-up to “Loser” the 9 p.m. hour. At 8 p.m., however, the increased reality competition put some hurt on “Power of 10” (1.8), which hit a series low.

Fox was third with repeats. ABC was fourth with a pair of “Just For Laughs” (2.0 and 2.2) and the season finales of “I-Caught” (1.3) and “Primetime: Crime” (1.8). The CW was last with repeats.
