NBC has not had much luck at the ratings game recently. And they can officially add their latest reality show Ready For Love to their list of unsuccessful ventures. The new matchmaking romp came in at last place last night with 3.8 million viewers and a 1.6 rating in the 18-49 demographic.
Apparently, the show's married hosts Bill and Giuliana Rancic were enough to draw more viewers. What's more? The show still tanked despite a very strong Voice lead-in.
We hope NBC will find a way to turn things around, but what does this mean for the Eva Longoria produced show?? Is a “So Long, Farewell” awaiting ‘round the corner?!

Ouch! Looks as though this one's going to sink without a trace relatively soon if they don't do some serious rewrites!
The second episode of the highly controversial US adaptation of the UK series Skins aired last night, and reportedly dropped a MASSIVE 52% in the ratings, with only 1.6 million viewers, compared to the premiere's 3.3 million.
Of course, this is after a week of advertisers pulling out due to content, and no Jersey Shore lead-in beforehand, but we're just going to say that the drop is most likely due to the fact the show is just bad.
So unfortunate! Guess MTV should have focused less on its wannabe edginess and more on making it watchable!
