NBC’s ‘Loser’ a Big Ratings Winner

Jan 6, 2010  •  Post A Comment

The two-hour return of NBC’s reality show "The Biggest Loser" was a big winner for the network on Tuesday night, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

"Loser" averaged a 4.6 Nielsen rating in the 18-49 adult demo, edging out CBS’ "NCIS"  (4.4) at 8 p.m. and "NCIS Los Angeles" (3.7) at 9. CBS’ "The Good Wife" did well with a 3.0 at 10 p.m.

ABC’s burning off of "Scrubs" and "Better Off Ted" episodes has resulted in tepid figures, including last night’s 1.4 and 2.6, respectively. At 10 p.m., NBC’s "Jay Leno Show" bested ABC’s "The Forgotten" 2.2 to 1.2.

Fox’s ratings for the broadcast of the Orange Bowl football game had yet to be determined.
