Biggest Loser coach Jillian Michaels is a formidable personality: She looks like Glee's Lea Michele but comes off like Jane Lynch's Sue Sylvester. On the June 1 premiere of her NBC series Losing It with Jillian, she spends a week with a dangerously obese family. When the winded mother says she's trying to get with the routine, Jillian yells, "Trying is planning to fail!" It is? The show is well executed, if you can stomach the pained psychodrama.
