Eva Longoria’s Dating Show has been scrapped just after two episodes. The former Desperate Housewives star’s Ready for Love dating reality show has been pulled by NBC it just wasn’t bringing in the audience.
“It’s so hard to date anybody today,’ Eva told NBC before the show aired. “This show puts it into a format that people are using today. Matchmakers. The Internet. Scouring the earth for that perfect match. I think people will take away inspiration, motivation to find their match, she added. “The hopeless romantic in themselves to go out and find their compatible one.” The show, for its two episodes anyway, was hosted by Bill and Giuliana Rancic. “This show is going to do for the dating show genre what The Voice did for the music show genre,” Rancic said. “I truly believe that it’s going to change the whole landscape of these types of programmes.” His wife Giuliana added: “You almost want it to be opposite of what these dating shows are doing, because a lot of that stuff tends to be a train wreck.”
The show had dropped significantly in its second airing. The follow-up episode averaged a 1.2 rating in the key demo and 3.2 million viewers.
