Ready for Love?

More like: Ready to Watch Any Show But This One.

Despite getting a huge lead-in from The Voice, the two-hour series premiere of NBC’s new romance reality show Ready for Love came in last place among the major broadcast networks at both 9 and 10 p.m. on Tuesday night. Ready for Love had only 3.8 million viewers and a 1.6 rating among adults 18-49 (and this early rating includes a minute of overrun from The Voice).

The adult demo performance is actually the same as the series premiere of Hannibal last Thursday, except the reality show’s Voice lead-in was 282 percent larger than what Hannibal had from Go On; plus Ready for Love was against weaker competition at 10 p.m. Ready for Love matches last season’s NBC launch for Fashion Star.

As for The Voice, right after we praised the show for its growth trend this spring, naturally the numbers went down — dipping 7 percent this week now that NCIS isn’t a repeat.

Also last night: ABC’s Dancing results show was down 17 percent to a season low. NCIS was down 19 percent from a couple weeks ago to a low, while NCIS: LA was steady and Golden Boy improved a bit. Fox’s comedies were up slightly.  Full Chart:
