The Big­gest Loser

Rules HE Big­gest Loser: The Next Gen­er­a­tion edged its way back into the most watched show.

The Chan­nel 10 weight-loss se­ries on Tues­day made its fourth Top 10 ap­pear­ance since it­sMarch 17 de­but.

The se­ries, which is based on break­ing the gen­er­a­tional cy­cle of obe­sity within a fam­ily unit, pulled 753,000 view­ers to be ninth for the evening.

It has been a roller­coaster rat­ings ride for The Big­gest Loser. The show’s big­gest au­di­ence was 1.014 mil­lion on March 25 and its low­est fig­ure was on March 19 – three days af­ter it started – when 500,000 tuned in.

The Big­gest Loser may strug­gle for con­sis­tency, but that’s not a prob­lem for My Kitchen Rules which won the evening

The Voice with 1.9 mil­lion view­ers. While the re­al­ity cook­ing show steams along, there’s about to be a re­al­ity check of a dif­fer­ent kind for MKR and The Big­gest Loser when Chan­nel 9’s The Voice re­turns on Sun­day.

MKR will go head-to-head with the singing tal­ent show on Sun­day. Most nights they will screen in com­pe­ti­tion.

Like its pre­de­ces­sor Masterchef: The

My Kitchen Pro­fes­sion­als, The Big­gest Loser is likely to suf­fer in the rat­ings.

The Voice won ev­ery night it screened in 2012 and kicks off with blind au­di­tions on Sun­day.
