Ready for Love cancelled but still airing a new episode

NBC cancelled Ready for Love last week after just two low-rated episodes were broadcast, but it will still air a new episode Tuesday night, the network confirmed to me.

When I saw Eva Longoria, the show’s executive producer, tweet about tomorrow’s episode, I suggested someone might have forgotten to tell her that her own show was cancelled. (Reporting on the cancellation last week focused on its cancellation after two episodes.) Then I checked NBC.com, and my digital TV guide: both showed a new episode.

An NBC publicist confirmed to me that Eva was right and I was wrong: a new episode will air Tuesday after The Voice, with Grimm replacing it next week, on April 30. Other episodes may air in the future, but no decision has been made yet as to when that’ll be.
