The Biggest Loser is introducing not one but two new trainers to take contestants through their dramatic weight-loss journey in Season 11, which begins January 4. The reason: Jillian Michaels is leaving the show after the May 2011 finale. The wannabe losers, which include an Olympic gold medalist and the heaviest contestant to date, will be allowed to choose between sweating it out with trusted trainers Michaels and Bob Harper and face elimination each week, or train with the unknown duo and receive immunity for a month.
Biggest Loser trainer Jillian Michaels says she is leaving the reality competition series.

Jeers to NBC for turning over an hour of primetime to a glorified infomercial.
The Peacock has flirted with the equivalent of self-help ads (The Biggest Loser, Losing It With Jillian), but the net has truly crossed the line with Breakthrough with Tony Robbins, an hourlong series debuting July 27 at 8/7c. That's right, "author, strategist and coach" Robbins—who was mocked as a charlatan nearly 20 years ago on The Ben Stiller Show ("I hypnotize you with my teeth, and you pay me money!")—is now a network-TV star...

The Bachelorette, Glee
There are lots of ways to handle awkward situations. Ignore them, which makes them worse. (See: this week's episodes of Breaking Bad and Glee.) Force them into the open, which can get emotional (Losing it with Jillian). Or just hit someone (Royal Pains). This week's episode of The Bachelorette reminded us that the one thing you should never do is change the subject to the weather. What's the best way to deal with an uncomfortable moment? See No. 1 on our list. Welcome to Top Moments, elephant-in-the-room edition.
Jillian Michaels has shown her abilities as a longer-term trainer on The Biggest Loser, and in her new show she'll demonstrate how effective she can be in just a week. On NBC's Losing it with Jillian (Tues, 10/9c), the 36-year-old moves in with a different family each week to help them discover their "epiphany rock bottom moment." TVGuide.com spoke with Michaels about what viewers can expect from her new series, why diet is key, and how she's more a life coach than anything else.
The hit summer festival of pratfalls is returning for a third season in three weeks, and this preview gives viewers a taste of things to come. Twelve single guys and 12 single women, paired up on blind dates, have a go at the extreme obstacle course, competing for a chance at the $100,000 prize. The gauntlets they'll run include Overdrive, Bruiseball and the evocatively named Love Handles Fling Set.
