NBC won all six hours of primetime in the key demographic of adults 18-49 and won the night in both 18-49 and total viewers.

"Law & Order: SVU" and "The Biggest Loser" were respectively the #1 and #2 shows on television Tuesday night on any network in adults 18-49.

Last night from 8-10 p.m. ET, "The Biggest Loser 5" (4.3 rating, 11 share in adults 18-49, 10.2 million viewers overall) won its time period in every key ratings category � adults, men and women 18-34, 18-49, 25-54 and total viewers.

From its first half-hour to its fourth, "Biggest Loser" increased by 53 percent in 18-49 rating (to a 5.2/13 from a 3.4/9) and its overall viewership increased by 3.7 million persons, or 43 percent (to 12.1 million from 8.5 million).
