NBC Moves ‘Grimm’ to Tuesdays, Cancels ‘Ready For Love’
It’s that time again! With the Upfront presentations set to begin in the next few weeks, all the major networks have begun to trim the hedges and tighten a few loose ends before the ultimate presentations. The latest to shake things up is NBC, who has announced the cancellation of struggling reality series ‘Ready For Love,’ moving the surprisingly-durable ‘Grimm‘ to Tuesdays for the foreseeable future. Could that be a sign of good things to come for the quietly-steady NBC drama?
‘Grimm’ Fans have temporarily caught a break in the fairy tale drama’s scheduling, albeit at the cost of NBC’s reailty dating series ‘Ready for Love.’ The peacock network has decided to shelve the remaining episodes of ‘Ready For Love,’ taking ‘Grimm off the Friday block to fill its Tuesday 10:00 p.m. time slot, at least until May 21.
‘Ready For Love’ had previously faced the Herculean task of replacing ‘Smash‘ on the Tuesday lineup, but only averaged under 3.5 million viewers. Hosted by Bill and Giuliana Rancic and executive produced by Eva Longoria, ‘Ready For Love’ invited eligible women to “find out how easy it can be to find true love.”
Hopefully NBC’s faith in ‘Grimm‘ will contribute to an order for season 3, though we’ll learn more once the network officially holds its Upfront presentation. Would you like to see a third season of ‘Grimm,’ now that the series has temporarily escaped the Friday night death slot?
