NBC drops 'Ready for Love'

NBC is apparently no longer “Ready for Love.”

Ready for Love

The dating series, which only aired twice in its Tuesdays at 10 p.m. slot, will be replaced by “Grimm” through May 21, and “Dateline” will replace “Grimm” 9 p.m. Fridays beginning April 26.

It is unknown whether or not (or where) the remaining episodes of the Eva Longoria- produced dating show will air.

“Ready for Love” had an unspectacular debut April 10, and then the second week dropped to a 1.2 rating in the 18-49 demo and 3.2 million viewers.

“Ready for Love” was hosted by Giuliana and Bill Rancic and featured three bachelors: Dallas- based financier Ben Patton, Plain White T’s band member Tim Lopez and Miami entrepreneur Ernesto Arguello.

The show included three matchmakers (Amber Kelleher- Andrews, Tracy McMillan and Matthew Hussey) and 36 bachelorettes.

“The A.V. Club” website gave the show’s premiere an “F,” calling it a “catastrophe of a television show.”

The 10 p.m. Tuesdays time slot has been a rough one for the Peacock Network since “Parenthood” concluded. “Smash” took the slot over, but quickly sunk. It has been moved to Saturdays, and is not expected to return for a third season.
