Jillian Michaels out as co-host of The Doctors

Former Biggest Loser trainer Jillian Michaels is out as co-host of The Doctors, the show she joined after quitting the NBC reality show.

The New York Post reports that “[i]nsiders say the addition of Michaels to ‘The Doctors’ lineup ‘wasn’t a good fit,’ since Michaels was the only non-physician among the four co-hosts (Travis Stork, Lisa Masterson, James Sears and Drew Ordon).”

The official word from the show via a statement confirms that (“wasn’t the fit we both hoped for”) but goes on about how much they love Jillian even though she’s leaving: “Jillian has contributed greatly to our show this season, and we value her talent and insight as she has inspired countless people to improve their lives.”
