Ready…Or Not: It appears Tim, Ben, and Ernesto, who have been searching for their soulmates on NBC’s new dating reality show Ready for Love, have to cut their hunt short. NBC has pulled the low-rated show, produced by Eva Longoria, after two episodes. Beginning April 30, the network’s sci-fi Friday hit, Grimm, will move into Ready for Love‘s Tuesdays at 10 PM time slot, following The Voice. [Deadline]

Too Scary for TV: Former Spice Girl Melanie Brown has been banned from her new gig as judge on the Australian version of America’s Got Talent, and it’s all thanks to her old job as Australian X Factor judge. Her old network, Seven, sued to keep her off rival airwaves because she had an exclusive deal with them, and they planned to use her in a small role on the next season of X Factor. An Australian court has ruled that she cannot appear on any other TV network in the country until Jan. 31, 2014. [TV Guide]

Ratings Rise: It’s not all bad news for NBC. Two back-to-back episodes of Parks and Recreation were up in the ratings, and Community even ticked up a tenth of a point. However, freshman drama Hannibal dipped three tenths of a point. Although American Idol‘s ratings have been down for Season 12, the reality hit still won the night. [The Hollywood Reporter]
