It looks like television audiences weren’t quite ready for “Ready for Love,” with the news that the NBC series has been cancelled with all remaining episodes to be posted online, NBC Latino has learned.
The dating competition series – which has been pulled from the air effective immediately – will be aired in weekly installments on NBC.com, Hulu and on VOD (Amazon, iTunes, etc.) beginning next Tuesday, April 30 through June 4 with the show finale.
“Ready for Love” – which features bachelors Tim Lopez, Ben Patton and Ernesto Arguello on their quest to find love – had officially been pulled from NBC’s primetime schedule earlier this week and was replaced in its 10:00 p.m. time slot with fairytale drama “Grimm.”
Executive produced by Eva Longoria, “Ready for Love” debuted on April 9 to an audience of 3.8 million viewers, reports The Wrap. The series failed to gain viewers with its second episode, with a 13 percent decline for a total of 3.4 million viewers during its highly-competitive time slot.
Amid previous reports that the “Ready for Love” had been cancelled, Longoria went on the defensive, telling fans on Twitter that the show was “just changing days.”
But fans hoping to watch the show via broadcast shouldn’t lose hope: There’s still a possibility that “Ready for Love” may be aired on one of NBC Universal’s cable networks, show representatives told NBC Latino.
