Reality show a ratings winner

The two-hour conclusion of weight-loss reality series “The Biggest Loser” was a ratings winner for NBC on Tuesday, lifting the net to first place on the night among young adults for a third straight week.

According to preliminary nationals from Nielsen, “The Biggest Loser 4” wrapped its season with a timeslot-leading 4.6 rating/13 share in adults 18-49 and 11.4 million viewers overall from 9 to 11 p.m. — the best numbers this season for the show. It also marks the best result in the time period for NBC in 11 months.

Fox was led by a repeat of “House” at 9 (3.3/9 in 18-49, 9.9 million viewers overall).
