It's a pivotal week: The remaining nine finalists disband from their teams and learn they'll compete individually from here on out. They also pick a past player to rejoin the program. Sure, the sentiment is nice -- but who watches reality shows for nice sentiments? Indeed, this is just another inflated effort that's light on tension and (pardon the pun) heavy on bombastic music and weigh-ins. Here's hoping trainer Jillian Michaels' new spinoff will give the genre a lift! (NBC, 8 P.M.)
