How to be an actor in the Trump era
Fox Channel’s “The Biggest Loser” was renewed Friday for a third season, bringing to an end the show’s nine-season run.
The network announced the renewal of the show after it had been renewed for a second time last fall and the network’s parent company, 21st Century Fox, said it is pleased to see the show return.
“The Bigger Picture” has long been regarded as the most important program of its kind in primetime.
The series has won an Emmy for Best Reality-Competition Series and was nominated for a Peabody Award in 2017 for Best Original Series.
Fox News Channel announced the show in February and it was renewed for two more seasons this spring, after which the network announced it would be canceled.
Fox Sports Network announced the series in February, and the show was renewed last fall for two additional seasons.
The program’s third season will air in 2019.
Fox is one of the most politically conservative networks in cable and satellite television, and it has not had a program on Fox News for more than two years.
The “Biggest Losers” was a critical ratings success, drawing more than 6 million viewers a night in the ratings for the first season and topping Fox News’ primetime ratings.
It was also the first program on the network to air in a primetime slot since “The View” in 2014.
