    I agree.

    Also, in the past, episodes were usually two hours long. Now it's only one hour so far. Everything has to be crammed in to 45 minutes or so (commercials).

    I always felt that 2 hours was too much but now I feel like one hour is lacking. How about 90 minutes?

    I used to fast forward through the fluff & filler they put into the 2 hr format.

    I thought I was wrong once, but I was mistaken.

    Personally, I could do without the trainer "tips" which are nothing more than an advertisement. How long did we see Dolvet talk about the Lara Bars? Plenty of time there to show how the eliminated contestant is doing now.

    Two hours was definitely too long, too much filler and recaps. But last night felt rushed somehow.

    He's had such weird facial hair going on the past few seasons. At one point the beard was pretty long and pointy--very Elizabethan. I happen to like beards, but not Bob's versions.

    Yes, I thinkk 90 minutes would work well.

    He was a guest on Bethenny today. She and Bob have different ideas on eating and it was fun to see them, playfully, spar. She has candy in jars all around the place and Bob was shocked. She said just eat a small amount.

    Only 44 minutes of show time every hour.

    What I did like about this episode was seeing Lindsay one of the three kids from the previous season and how she has continued her healthy lifestyle and how she has influenced her family and her brother. Well I think with her parents it probably was a two way street of them supporting her and getting on board with the food and exercise. It was also good to see her older brother lose close to 70 lbs. This was a great spot. Wouldn't mind seeing Binngo and Sunny either.

    They may show Bingo and Sunny the next two weeks. I enjoyed seeing Lindsey. She looks so good.

    I do think the show needs to go to 90min as it feels rushed at just an hour. I like how quick the weigh in has been so far. I always hated how long it took in the past. I'd like to see more nutrition information.

    I really liked how they had the person from each team whose weight was going to count narrate the weigh-in for their team. It made it personable without all of the pseudo-drama of the drawn out weigh-ins.

    Also, I watch the show on Hulu so I fast forward through the challenges and drama--I want the inspirational stories and the transformations--so the 60-minute format doesn't seem rushed to me because I don't watch the whole thing anyway. I get my Biggest Loser fix without having to constantly fast forward.

    I'm also enjoying the red line. I hope they keep it up. All the politicking was a real turn off, and the phony vote out comments, etc. And that system really rewarded the awful people. Right now I don't dislike ANY of the contestants, and I can't remember how long it's been since I could say that!

    We'll get to see Fernanda next week--they probably did that as extra incentive to tune in next week! They even said, in the first 5 minutes! Seh is one with the heavy baby, right? I'm not sure she can blame that o being heavy while pregnant.

    I also liked seeing the kids come back (hopefully all of them). This week's kid is still no skinny Minnie, but looks healthy and athletic, so she isn't taking it too far.
