Jillian Michaels, The Biggest Loser's toughest trainer, hasn't gone soft in this spinoff. She's out
to push obese families into the gym, and in the opener, her veins bulge as she orders a Massachusetts clan to lay off the meatballs. Say what you will about her ultradramatic methods, Michaels gets results. The star is less successful, however, when she uncovers a family tragedy and attempts to play therapist. She comes off like a Dr. Drew wannabe. (NBC, 10 P.M.)
