Thank Grimm it's Tuesday doesn't have quite the same ring to it as it did when we were celebrating Fridays, but we can hardly complain that the supernatural drama is being upgraded to a pretty choice spot. That's the good news, especially if you're a fan of the dark, dramatic and somewhat underrated series. The bad news is for those who were ready for love. Or loving Ready for Love. As Grimm takes over the unscripted dating competition's post-Voice timeslot, Ready for Love's remaining episodes are being shelved until some yet-to-be-determined date.
NBC passed the word along today. Grimm's being moved from Friday nights to Tuesdays, beginning April 30, which is actually the Tuesday after next. Dateline will take over Grimm's old spot on Fridays at 9:00 p.m., beginning April 26, which means it looks like we'll be in for a week without Grimm next week. But again, can we complain? It's far worse when a series is moved to Friday than away from it. Of course, Grimm was one more reason to look forward to Friday nights, but the series, which has held steady in its ratings, bringing in about 5 million viewers per episode in its current, second season, will hopefully stand to benefit from airing after the hugely popular singing competition, The Voice.
Then again, airing after The Voice really didn't help Ready for Love, which slipped from 3.67 million viewers in its premiere earlier this month to 3.2 million viewers for its second episode this week. The dating show clearly didn't take off, despite plenty of promoting on NBC's part, not to mention its Voice lead-in. Hopefully Grimm will do better on Tuesday nights.
Grimm will air on Tuesday night at 10:00 p.m. through May 21, when the series wraps up its second season.
Here's the information for tonight's episode, which airs as previously scheduled at 9:00 p.m. EST on NBC.
