It’s shedding viewers faster than contestants can moan about eating lettuce leaves and now Ten’s The Biggest Loser: Transformed has suffered the ignominy of being beaten by the SBS.

Following on from yesterday’s news on B&T that the Sunday night edition of the program had been axed for new Modern Family episodes, comes today’s Oztam figures that reveal the weight loss show could manage a paltry 289,000 viewers last night.

The show was fifth in its timeslot and was soundly beaten by SBS’s Great Continental Railway Journeys which managed 327,000 viewers.

Despite being axed from Sunday nights, Ten has said it will persevere with the show on the Monday-Thursday 7.30pm timeslot. However, a mere 10 days from its debut and ratings tanking fast, the show’s performance must be proving a monster headache for Ten management who must be toying with the the idea of axing it.

Last night, Nine’s Married At First Sight again won the honours, snaring 1.19million viewers. Seven’s My Kitchen Rules had 1.12 million.

Seven won the night with 31.7 per cent, Nine was second with 31.2 per cent, Ten third with 17. 2 per cent, ABC with 13.6 per cent and SBS with 6.2 per cent.
