Ready for Love's third episode will still air Tuesday, April 23 as previously scheduled, the network later clarified.
Produced by actress Eva Longoria and hosted by Giuliana & Bill stars Giuliana Rancic and Bill Rancic, Ready for Love premiered April 9 and was airing two-hour episodes in the Tuesdays 9-11PM ET/PT time period.
However, Ready for Love's first two broadcasts delivered poor ratings even though it had The Voice -- the highest-rated program on NBC's schedule -- as its Tuesday night lead-in.
Despite heavy promotion, Ready for Love's April 9 premiere averaged only 3.85 million viewers and a 1.6/4 rating/share in the Adults 18-49 ratings demographic -- an enormous dropoff from the 12.95 million viewers and 4.2/13 rating/share its The Voice lead-in delivered.
Ready for Love's second episode delivered even worse ratings this week, averaging only 3.37 million viewers and a 1.3/4 rating/share in Adults 18-49.
NBC will move Grimm, a drama series which currently airs on Friday nights, into the Tuesdays 10-11PM timeslot beginning April 30.
Ready for Love's first two episodes featured the show's three bachelors -- Benjamin "Ben" Patton, Tim Lopez and Ernesto Arguello -- each narrowing their pool of bachelorettes to eight women.
(REVISED TO REFLECT NBC'S SUBSEQUENT CLARIFICATION THAT EPISODE 3 WILL STILL AIR ON APRIL 23)
