Reality entertainment made its 2014 debut last night when Ten unveiled its ambitious The Biggest Loser: Challenge Australia.

Launching the program on a sports heavy evening, with the tennis on Seven and cricket on Nine, paid off with The Biggest Loser coming second in its 6.30pm time slot.

The show, which sees the program’s trainers take on an entire town, pulled in 753,000 viewers for Ten.

Its launch comes ahead of the return of Seven’s My Kitchen Rules, due to start after the tennis, and Nine’s The Block: Fans v Faves.

It sat in sixth place behind Nine’s One Day Cricket match but ahead of Seven’s Australian Open broadcast, which won 733,000 viewers.

Modern Family, which came right before The Biggest Loser, had a strong night with a top 10 place and 638,000 viewers.

Ten took home a total combined share of 20.8%, with 14.8% going to the network’s primary channel.

Nine won the night overall with a total 33.3% of all free-to-air viewers with 1.434 million watching the second half of the cricket match and 1.178 million watching the first.

Nine’s primary channel won a total 25.8% share, according to OzTam’s overnight metro ratings.

Nine’s Go also had two shows in the top 20, with The Big Bang Theory pulling in 266,000 viewers and 259,000 for another episode.

Seven’s total share was 24.9% with 17.6% for its primary channel.

The ABC came fourth with a total 16% and 11.8% for ABC1. SBS sat on a combined 5.1% with 4.3% for SBS One.
