If you were one of the few — apparently very few — hooked on NBC’s dating show disaster “Ready for Love,” we’ve got some good news: NBC will release all the remaining episodes. The possibly less good news: They won’t air on TV, and will instead be available via VOD and digital distribution (either streaming or for sale on NBC.com, Hulu, iTunes, Amazon, etc.).
Oddly, NBC still plans to release one episode per week — as if it was still airing on the network — beginning next Tuesday, April 30, and ending on the previously scheduled finale date of June 4. Who knows, maybe the show will find a more dedicated following online than it did during its brief three-week run on NBC?
The relationship series was executive produced by Eva Longoria and followed a trio of eligible bachelors looking for love. The April 9 series premiere drew a meager 3.67 million viewers and a 1.5 rating in the 18-49 demo, despite following NBC’s blockbuster “The Voice.”
By its third episode those ratings had shrunk to 2.86 million viewers and a 1.1 rating in the demo. It was just the latest bomb in what has been a particularly rough season for NBC.
