Ten pulls The Biggest Loser from Primetime

 Ten  has dumped The Biggest Loser: Transformed from its 7.30pm timeslot.

The move comes after  viewing numbers fell to 254,000 viewers across the five capital cities, an all-time low for the franchise.

“We’re disappointed,” Ten program chief Beverley McGarvey says. “It really hasn’t resonated with audiences the way we had hoped.

“It is a very competitive time of year. There are two very established shows on (My Kitchen Rules and Married at First Sight) that are creating a lot of noise.

“We hoped it would do a lot better but it simply hasn’t. We think we’ve given it as long as we possibly can. It will move to daytime from Monday.”

“Obviously we are disappointed that The Biggest Loser: Transformed did not resonate with viewers as strongly as we had hoped  . We are proud of the show –  and proud of the great work done by Shannan Ponton, Libby Babet, Fiona Falkiner and the contestants.”

It will now screen at 1.00pm Monday to Thursday.

Ten will now screen the following shows in the 7:30 pm slot

Monday nights at 7.30pm: Modern Family (new and repeat episodes).
Tuesday nights at 7.30pm: Jamie Oliver’s Superfood Family Classics (repeat episodes).
Wednesday nights at 7.30pm: The Graham Norton Show (new episodes).
Thursday nights at 7.30pm: David Attenborough’s Natural Curiosities (new episodes).
