NBC to Start ‘Losing It' June 1
Weight-loss show to follow ‘America's Got Talent' on Tuesdays

The weight-loss program, hosted by Biggest Loser trainer Jillian Michaels, will get the Tuesday at 10 p.m. slot beginning June 1 after America's Got Talent. (Talent will have a two-hour episode on Tuesdays followed by a one-hour results show on Wednesdays).
Parenthood, which now occupies the Tuesday at 10 p.m. slot, will finish its initial 13-episode run on May 25. NBC has yet to make a decision about that show's fate.
Losing It will have Michaels crisscrossing the country to find families in need of diet and exercise makeover. The show joins a growing field of weight-loss programs -- spurred by the success of The Biggest Loser, which recently wrapped its sixth season.
ABC's entry into the weight-loss-reality milieu comes Sunday (March 21) with the premiere of Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution, in which the celebrity chef and healthy-food activist attempts to get the residents of Huntington, W.Va. to kick long-standing fat and sugar addictions.
Food Revolution is from Ryan Seacrest Productions. Losing It is produced by Reveille in association with Empowered Media.
