Kids & Family

The Biggest Loser, 8 p.m., NBC: The contestants have to ride stationary bikes, but if one eats a mini cupcake, it will add five minutes to another contestant. See how evil the producers are?
Melrose Place, 9 p.m., CW: Ella has just about had it with Jonah's lavish attention. We thought everyone on this show was an attention whore.
The Millionaire Matchmaker, 10 p.m., Bravo: Patti calls in Dr. Nicki to help out with professional volleyball player Ayinde Alakoye. There was something about slamming balls into the opposing side to score.
