    Whoa! This Ready for Love sounded bad, but that’s just sad! Ha ha!

  • Lance

    To suggest that NBC has no options but to stick with a show that will likely drop to a 1.0 next airing is absolutely silly! Even Ultima said, The Voice is going to 2 hours in a few weeks. Come on, even Dateline specials and a one hour Best of Betty White OTR are more likely than a RFL burnoff! Why would they just throw in the towel for the rest of the season than promote shows that will actually be returning?

  • Jayzel

    Geez, for the love of God. Ready For Love’s retention of the demo and total viewers was ever worse than TNN — I didn’t think that was possible. Cancel it!

  • Jordan

    Man, I hope Golden Boy survives the cuts.

  • grey

    Wow, “Ready for Love.” Not ready for prime time. I really wonder if they will mention it on E! News tonight.

  • Ultima

    Geez, for the love of God. Ready For Love’s retention of the demo and total viewers was ever worse than TNN


    2 April
    8:30 – The Voice 4.7, 14.54 million
    9:00 – The New Normal 1.9, 4.97 million (retention from 8:30 – 40%, 34%)
    9:30 – The New Normal 1.4, 3.56 million (retention from 8:30 – 30%, 24%)

    9 April
    8:30 – The Voice 4.6, 13.76 million
    9:00 – Ready for Love 2.1, 5.37 million (retention from 8:30 – 46%, 39%)
    9:30 – Ready for Love 1.6, 3.72 million (retention from 8:30 – 35%, 27%)

  • Frank

    Well, this should prove that all the naysayers of “The New Normal”, that “Ready for Love” was NOT ready for that timeslot. It’s a tough timeslot for ANY show, given that its up against NCIS/LA and “New Girl”.
    Maybe this will give NBC cause to think twice about giving up on TNN.

    If the Voice is going to two hours soon, can’t they just air special episodes of Hannibal at 10PM and pull the one-hour editions of Ready For Love? The show’s going to go into June otherwise, so not only might double episodes help the ratings, maybe they’ll get all of the produced episodes in by the end of May.

  • Jayzel

    Nonsense. Hahahhahaha. I love that. You pull out the half hour numbers like the average Joe or Jane has them. I was looking at the full hour/2 hour numbers. I do thank you for bringing out the breakdown by 30 minutes, but try being more polite to the average reader. Thanks

  • Ultima

    Double episodes of Save Me

    Did they ever restart production on the series? They had stopped after two episodes and replaced the showrunner in January, but I’ve heard nothing about it since then except that it is unlikely to air and that they’re looking to move Anne Heche to a different project.

    Maybe you’ve wondered how many people in the Nielsen sample represent a tenth of a rating point. In the all-important Adult 18-49 demographic, the answer is 22 people. Not even enough individuals to fill the roster of one Major League Baseball team or occupy all the seats on a city bus. On a recent day (April 19, 2012), the Nielsen People Meter sample had 22,015 Adults 18-49 “in tab” or in the sample and properly reporting data. The number of “installed” sample members is slightly higher, and the “in tab” number fluctuates from day to day due to equipment malfunctions or compliance issues. (If a sample member stops pressing buttons routinely as they watch television, a sample member is taken “out of tab” and contacted by the ratings service and coached to press their assigned button on the people meter remote control when they watch TV.)

    So with 22,015 Adults 18-49 in the national sample, a 10.0 rating would mean 2,202 sample members were watching a particular program, while 220 sample members would yield a 1.0 rating. When we get down to 22 people moving a rating by one-tenth of a rating point, it is not hard to imagine a few people getting sick, some deciding to go out on a night when they usually watch TV, a couple working an extra shift, or a few others God forbid doing something else than watching a favorite show.

    The numbers become even more volatile with smaller but still important demographic groups. Six (6) Men 18-34 in the Nielsen sample can move a rating in that demographic group by a tenth of a point, and only four (4) Teens 12-17 can do the same thing. It becomes even more treacherous if you look at cable networks with low coverage levels (like HBO). For example, 1,850 Men 18-34 in the national sample subscribe to HBO. So if you were tempted to compare ratings with young men for a couple of boxing matches, one or two young men could impact an HBO rating by a tenth of a point.

    This does not mean you should distrust ratings or even other polls. It is merely a caution to not push the data too far. A one-tenth of a rating point change in one isolated week for one program really should be taken with a grain of salt. Look at a program’s ratings over the course of several weeks. If a show is falling a tenth of a rating point a week for five weeks in a row, something real is going on rather than a transitory blip that could very well be reversed the following week. Look at multi-week network averages

    Very, very interesting. Thank you!

  • HalCapone

    Ready For Love is a cheap, heavily cheesy, loosely scripted program that follows a wildly popular heavily cheesy loosely scripted program. If it were a scripted show that cost a lot more greenbacks, the Nothing But Crap network would have pulled it at comparable anemic rating of 1.5. I expect the full run of Ready For Love will follow The Voice till the end of this season but don’t expect to see it back.

    The television “Reality” programming idea book has been looking awfully thin for a long while but it won’t stop the networks from trotting out the most outrageously bad stuff (like Splash and Ready For Love) because they cost next to nothing to make and can be churned out practically overnight.

  • LBConoy

    man o man

    I have never seen more network executives on a message board in my life!

    You all seem to have NBC scheduling figured out.

    Shh, don’t tell the cable networks… :roll:

  • senor chang


    Television is truly a fascinating business ;)

  • Oliver


    Yes. Production was restarted and 13 episodes were filmed.

    Its lack of premiere date suggests it didn’t turn out well, though.

    “It’s a tough timeslot for ANY show, given that its up against NCIS/LA and “New Girl”.”

    lol neither show is that strong. It’s one of the weakest timeslots.
