'Ready For Love' Cancelled; NBC Has Not Decided If It Will Air Remaining Episodes Of Dating Show

By Staff Writer | April 20, 2013 10:56 AM EDT

The men of NBC dating show Ready For Love may have been ready to find their soulmates, but viewers weren't ready to watch it.

NBC has indefinitely cancelled the primetime show after just a handful of episodes, announcing that the Eva Longoria-produced program will conclude on April 30. The network has announced when or if they will air the remaining episodes, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The 10:00pm time slot will now be switched with a different show and NBC will shuffle around its programming consequentially. Sci-fi show Grimm will take over that time slot until May 21, while Dateline will replace Grimm at 9:00pm on Fridays starting May 26.

Despite following one of the biggest shows on NBC in music competition The Voice, Ready For Love never got off the ground. In the series premiere, the show dropped from a 1.8 in its first hour to a 1.3 in the second hour. The most recent episode averaged with a 1.2 rating and 3.2 million viewers, painfully low numbers for a primetime show on a major network. 

Ever since Parenthood concluded in February, NBC has struggled to find equally strong programming for their 10:00pm slot. Broadway drama Smash initially filled the space, but proved to be a ratings dud during that time. It's since been moved to Saturdays and is unlikely to return for a third season.

Longoria was reportedly in talks to produce other shows with NBC, but it is unclear whether those initial proposals will now move forward.
