Ready for Love's premiere will be getting an extra promotional push from The Voice.
NBC has bumped the two-hour debut of the new Eva Longoria-produced reality dating series to Tuesday, March 26 at 9PM ET/PT -- where it will have the benefit of airing directly after the second part of the network's two-night premiere of the fourth edition of The Voice.
Ready for Love had been previously scheduled to debut Sunday, March 31 at 8PM ET/PT and will still air in the Sundays 8-10PM ET/PT timeslot following its special Tuesday night premiere.
All three men -- Ben Patton, an international financier from Dallas, TX; Tim Lopez, a Plain White T's band member from Santa Barbara, CA; and Ernesto Arguello, an entrepreneur with a social vision from Miami, FL -- were hand-selected by Longoria herself.
NBC orderedReady for Love last spring and announced the show's bachelors at the same time, allowing interested women to submit themselves for consideration to matchmakers Amber Kelleher-Andrews, Tracy McMillan and Matt Hussey.
