‘Ready For Love’ premiered April 9! Are you ‘Ready’ to schedule it on your DVR?

NBC’s Ready For Love has a valuable lesson to teach Americans: Sexy people have problems, too! The new reality dating series introduces viewers to three ‘eligible’ bachelors, all of whom have struggled to find the ‘right’ woman in their individual quests for love. With Giuliana and Bill Rancic playing Team Cupid, the first of the three gentlemen were introduced to a bevy of beauties on the April 9 premiere.

Bachelor No. 1 Tim Lopez, along with being a newly minted reality TV contestant, is also a member of the band Plain White Ts! (Remember, “Hey There, Delilah?” That was them.) And while he may have girls throwing themselves at him left and right, they’re not exactly dating material.

We did meet one of Tim’s exes on the show, and it couldn’t have been more awkward. Actually, I’m not really sure if it’s fair to call her his ex. “We had our moments,” she said. And that was all.


‘Ready For Love’ Ratings

Despite a ton of buzz, and an incredibly sappy commercial that ran every 15 minutes on NBC, Ready For Love found a fairly modest audience with it series premiere.

Entertainment Weekly reports that the reality series was the least-watched show among the major broadcast networks — that’s all but The CW for those keeping score at home — during both the 9 and 10 p.m. hours.

The premiere garnered 3.8 million total viewers, with The Voice as a lead-in.
