Last week's broadcast of The Biggest Loser 2's ninth episode scored the NBC reality show's best ratings performance of the season, setting season highs in both total viewers and the Adults 18-49 demographic.

The Biggest Loser 2's November 8 episode averaged 10.1 million overall viewers and a 4.0/11 rating/share among Adults 18-49.

In addition to representing The Biggest Loser 2's season highs, the performance also represented NBC's best numbers in the time period in nearly ten months -- since January 11, when the season finale of The Biggest Loser's inaugural season aired.

The Biggest Loser 2 broadcast's numbers placed it second in its time period among Adults 18-49 (only 0.2 ratings points behind CBS' NCIS drama) and first in the Adults 18-34, Women 18-34, and Women 18-49 demographics.

Together with strong performances from My Name Is Earl and Law & Order: Special Victims Unit, The Biggest Loser powered NBC to its seventh Tuesday night Adults 18-49 win in the 2005-2006 season's eight weeks.
