NBC finds a home for Jillian Michaels, but Tony Robbins still waits

Above, an early casting notice for “Losing It.”

As a follow up to last week’s NBC summer schedule announcement, the Peacock has added “Losing It With Jillian” to the mix.

“Losing It,” which stars “The Biggest Loser” trainer Jillian Michaels, bows on Tuesday, June 1 at 10 p.m. behind the two-hour premiere of “America’s Got Talent.”

Show will then slide into its normal Tuesday at 8 p.m. slot the following week, June 8. The addition of “Losing It” bumps the weekly two-hour performance edition of “America’s Got Talent” to 9 p.m. (having been originally given the 8 p.m. slot in last week’s announcement). “AGT” will now air for an hour until July, when it expands to two hours (from 9 to 11).

“Losing It” follows Michaels as she moves in with a different family each week and helps someone in the house lose their virginity.

Nope. Not true. Show actually follows her as she helps the family change their diet and exercise habits, and along the way work through the issues that are preventing family members from living a better lifestyle.

Reveille is behind “Losing It,” along with Empowered Media.

That still leaves “Breakthrough with Tony Robbins,” also from Reveille, without a firm premiere date. Similar in vein to “Losing It” — in that Robbins also helps folks work through their issues — perhaps “Breakthrough” could take over “Losing It’s” slot once that show ends its run.
