<h2>Ready for Love</h2>
<p><i>Trending on: Google Trends</i></p>
<p><b>Why:</b> Ah, the good ol¿ days of reality shows, when networks were content to just knock off one existing hit. Today, the trend seems to be toward Frankenstein-like mash-ups, which explains NBC¿s ¿Ready for Love,¿ an ungainly mixture of ¿The Bachelor¿ and any number of Bravo shows, with gameshow-style studio-audience elements of ¿The Dating Game¿ and relationship ¿mentoring¿ a la ¿Dr. Phil¿ thrown in for good measure. NBC launched ¿Ready for Love¿ on Tuesday with a bloated two-hour premiere. And while the soapy, dating-coach aspects could certainly tap into fans of the genre (particularly for the snark factor), one suspects many gawkers lured in via ¿The Voice¿ lead-in were ready for bed well before the show ended.
