Oh, so that’s what NBC is going to do, it’s going to replace all Gritty Cop Dramas with The Biggest Loser and its spin-offs. According to Variety, NBC will soon bring us Losing it with Jillian, in which Biggest Loser trainer Jillian Michaels will move in with (overweight/unhealthy) families to “help change their diet and exercise habits.” Apparently they are looking for families with children ages 9 and up, but although the children are a little young and they’re not overweight I can think of one family that might benefit from a life coach.
How long until Biggest Loser entities takes over all of NBC Primetime (pre-Leno, of course)? What other spin-offs could there be? I’d say a Biggest Loser–Dancing with the Stars mash-up, but I guess Dance Your Ass Off already beat them to it. Or they could just go the CSI/NCIS route and introduce The Biggest Loser: Houston.
Watch out Dick Wolf, you and your Law & Order franchise might have a new competitor breathing (heavily) down your neck.
