Biggest Loser 3 finale watched by 11.7 million people

The two-hour finale of The Biggest Loser 3 was watched by an average of 11.7 million people.

While that “was the show’s highest rating of the season,” according to The Hollywood Reporter, the show’s ratings “dropped 28% compared to last fall’s ‘Biggest Loser’ finale.”

Last season’s finale was the show’s highest-rated episode ever, with 15.9 million viewers. It aired at the end of November, although this season’s finale didn’t exactly have much competition, as most other series are now in reruns.

The third-season finale also “won each half hour of its two-hour finale in adults 18-49 between 8 p.m. and 10 p.m. by wide margin,” according to The Hollywood Reporter.
