New dating reality series kicked off to soft ratings, despite online hype
Eva Longoria tried her hand at producing a new, “groundbreaking” dating series for NBC but, after just 2 episodes, the network has decided to pull it because of disappointing ratings.“Ready for Love” has been yanked off the air, The Wrap reports.
“The network is moving its supernatural drama ‘Grimm’ from its 9 p.m. slot on Fridays to replace the series on Tuesdays at 10 p.m. beginning April 30, behind a previously scheduled two-hour episode of ‘The Voice’,” the publication says.
“‘Grimm’ will remain in that 10 p.m. Tuesday timeslot through May 21. ‘Dateline’ will replace ‘Grimm’ at 9 p.m. Fridays, beginning April 26,” The Wrap further reports.
Hosted by Bill and Giuliana Rancic, the show aimed to help three gorgeous bachelors (also presented in the video above) find true love, with some help from professional matchmakers and social media.
NBC is yet to announce what will happen with the remaining episodes and whether they will ever air.
