Do you want Jillian Michaels back on "The Biggest Loser"?

That's the possiblity being raised after the news that Michaels is out as a co-host on daytime TV's "The Doctors." 

Michaels was the only layperson to co-host the medically themed daytime talk show. Although that was initially used as a selling point -- the idea being she could represent the viewer at home amid all the medical jargon -- in the end "it wasn’t the fit we both hoped for," a representative for the show told The Wrap. She also rubbed some viewers the wrong way.

So here's the scenario: Michaels is out of a job. "The Biggest Loser" continues to be a workhorse for NBC but the weight-loss reality show has seen its ratings sag over the past two seasons.

And "Biggest Loser" trainer Bob Harper told The Times in a recent interview that he would "never say 'never' " about the possibility of Michaels' return.

Ashley Sandberg, a spokeswoman for Michaels, echoed Harper's remark when she was asked about the possibility of reuniting Bob & Jillian: "We never say never."

A spokeswoman for the show declined to comment Sunday.

What do you think, Show Trackers? Should Michaels return? Or leave the training to Bob and Dolvett? Vote!
