'Ready For Love' Pulled: Eva Longoria's Dating Show Dropped Due to Low Ratings

Close

Eva Longoria's Ready For Love has been dropped by NBC after only two weeks.

The show, which aired on Tuesdays at 10 p.m., used social media and professional matchmakers in an attempt to find suitable mates for several bachelors. However, the reality spot failed to draw in the necessary ratings, particularly in the 18-49 demographic, reports The Wrap.

According to Variety, while singing competition The Voice, which aired directly before Ready for Love, raked in 13.8 million viewers, the dating program received a staggeringly lower number with only 4 million.

Instead, the network is bringing the well performing, supernatural procedural Grimm over from Friday nights and airing it in the 10 p.m. Tuesday slot instead. Grimm will remain there through May 21.

Starting on April 26, Dateline will take over Grimm's spot at 9 p.m. on Fridays. Meanwhile, The Hollywood Reporter states that NBC is unsure what will become of the unaired Ready For Love episodes.

Hopefully Grimm will continue to fair well in the later time, particularly considering the spots' recent history. First NBC lost Parenthood, which had been doing well, then Smash moved in only to quickly bomb out and be replaced by the ill-fated Ready for Love, reports EW.
