The CW’s Top Model 7 concludes tonight; NBC’s The Biggest Loser begins its finale

Tonight, one network reality show concludes its fall season, while another begins its finale.

On The CW, the seventh cycle of Top Model will conclude at 8 p.m. ET. Having systematically eliminated most of the models who actually look good in pictures but who the psychic judging panel has determined don’t really want to win, the show is now down to overacting Melrose, bland Eugena, and uneven CariDee.

By the way, a report on says that last week’s “dreadful and embarrassing to watch” episode had a “marked decline in quality” because “last night’s episode was the first without writer involvement,” according to a former writer for the show. (The series’ writers went on strike last summer and were replaced by the show’s editors.)

On NBC, The Biggest Loser 3 begins to wrap up starting at 9 as it narrows the field one last time. Next week’s live finale will award the person who managed to play the best strategic game $250,000. The actual biggest loser will receive $100,000, while the stay-at-home contestant who lost the most weight gets $50,000. The finale will be preceded by a one-hour special during which season two winner Matt Hoover and trainers Bob and Kim will go to a school to teach kids about nutrition, which will probably involve feeding them lots of product-placed Jell-O.

Correction: This post initially stated that the NBC series concluded tonight, as several papers reported this morning; instead, it concludes next week at 8, so tonight’s the first part of the finale.
