Yes. For March 13, my local listings (Eastern time) show TBL running from 8:00 to 9:30, followed by Fashion Star from 9:30 to 11:00.
Next Tuesday there is a new NBC show starting at 8:30 pm (central), so is The Biggest Loser cutting back to a hour and a half?

I don't think so, because the episode summary at Zap2it.com had Jessica Simpson taking just one contestant on a shopping spree.
Wonder if the March 13th episode is the Makeover episode (since there's supposed to be a tie-in with that Fashion Star show).

I hope they will stay with the one hour format for next season.

I've just moved, and now lack a "clear view of the southern sky," so no Direct TV, and won't doubt I'll be able to find a replacement in time for tomorrow's show.
Damn that tree!

I wish they'd do it in sections.

Now it looks like there are only three weeks left, if the episode descriptions on TV guide are accurate. Has NBC shortened the season from what bigskygirl posted on Mar 9? Or are the descriptions we can now see OLD descriptions meant for 2-hour episodes? That would make more sense to me, because there is a lot happening.

3 April The Biggest Loser 2.0 6.41
27 March The Biggest Loser 2.0 5.650
20 March The Biggest Loser 2.3 6.76

10 January The Biggest Loser 2.4 6.65
3 January The Biggest Loser 2.4 6.590
Which sadly, at a rough glance, look similar to last season, so I don't know if there's been enough of a beating in the ratings to make NBC reassess the direction their show has taken.

The Biggest Loser
Get your hands off those treadmills! We're back on Sunday, January 6th and Monday, January 7th with a special two-night premiere!
Posted Jan 3, 2013 @ 9:56 AM
Nevermind, just checked TVguide. It's listed for Monday night.

NBC's fall schedule was just announced and it looks like Biggest Loser is going back to 1 hour episodes. It's also moving back to Tuesdays at 8:00, as a lead-in for The Voice. It isn't on the spring schedule, so it looks like this year will be one season again.

Season 15 will start on October 8th. On facebook, someone posted that Bob will not be coming back next season. Is that true?

It isn't on the spring schedule, so it looks like this year will be one season again.
But I heard Jillian say on her podcast that they were shooting back to back seasons this year. Maybe they will be saving one for the next year. :/

I believe they started shooting Season 15 last Tuesday (according the BL facebook page.)

Looks like tonight's show will be on for two hours. The season finale is 2/4 Will there be another season after the Olympics?
Posted Jan 7, 2014 @ 5:24 PM
Two hours (and live) tonight, two hours next week. Jillian had said in one of her podcasts that they shot two seasons back to back, but I am not sure when exactly the next one will air.
Posted Jan 8, 2014 @ 12:54 PM
I woul dhave thought that they would have put up something to say it was live but who knows. There were several mentions of 1 Month before the finale so it could have been live.
It seems like this crop is not going to have much time at home if the show was live. There are a lot of folks left at the Ranch and they have one month.
Who is left: Rachel, Tanya, David, Jay, Bobby, Chelsea, Jennifer, Marie (I always get her name wrong)
Am I missing anyone? I think I might be...
So three episodes and then the finale?
If the two hour show next week leads to a double elimination then we are down to 6 people. One person each of the following weeks gets us to 4 people. But that leaves only a week at home for the finalists. In the past the final three have been at home for longer then a week, right?
Posted Jan 8, 2014 @ 1:02 PM
I think the beginning was live. I was having problems getting a stream for the first half hour but I heard an audience applauding.
Posted Jan 27, 2014 @ 10:39 AM
1/28 episode will be one hour because of the President's State of the Union speech.
