Can I ask them not to watch it in our living room?

My roommates love The Biggest Loser. They watch it together in our living room whenever they have a chance. 
I, on the other hand, find it horribly offensive and the pinnacle of all that is wrong with our fat-shaming society. I spent the majority of my life obese. Over the past four years I have lost 100 pounds and I am struggling constantly with my body image issues. I still have a very rocky relationship with food. I have mentioned to my roommates before my dislike for the show and have told them how I think it's very problematic but they laughed it off.
Can I ask them not to watch it in our living room? It really makes me uncomfortable.
