Tune In Tonight: Get ready to skip ‘Ready for Love’

April 9, 2013


Featuring “the world’s greatest matchmakers” and semi-celebrities looking for the “perfect” match, the new dating spectacular “Ready for Love” (8 p.m., NBC) isn’t interesting enough to ridicule with much enthusiasm. It seems to exist only to give viewers of “Splash” (7 p.m., ABC) a feeling of superiority. Tonight’s lucky bachelor is music star Tim Lopez of the Plain White T’s.

According to NBC, Lopez is a “hopeless romantic.” He’s still in recovery from an 11-year romance and a three-year marriage that went south. Rather than moping like a crestfallen crooner, he’s doing the next most logical thing — searching for his heart’s desire amid a pre-packaged gaggle of exhibitionist strangers in front of a camera crew for millions of viewers to see. Or so NBC hopes.

Tonight’s other highlights:

• The sixth installment of blind auditions on “The Voice” (7 p.m., NBC).

• Two chefs compete as servers on “Hell’s Kitchen” (8 p.m., Fox).

• Somebody goes home on “Dancing With the Stars” (8 p.m., ABC).

“Deadliest Catch” (8 p.m., Discovery) examines an epic season.

• A chance encounter between the owners of a pink Volkswagen Beetle and a Ford Galaxie looms large on the season premiere of “Counting Cars” (8 p.m., History).

• Dave Davis stars in the MTV spin-off movie “Ladies Man: A Made Movie” (8 p.m., MTV).

• Deep-space explorers encounter terrors on their search for the origins of humanity in the 2012 head-scratcher “Prometheus” (7:30 p.m., HBO). Roger Ebert called it “magnificent,” but not all critics or viewers were as enraptured by this Ridley Scott space epic.

• Mindy’s ex wants to talk on “The Mindy Project” (8:30 p.m., Fox). NFL linebacker Clay Matthews guest-stars.

• Owen and Arroyo enter into a fierce competition on “Golden Boy” (9 p.m., CBS).

• Tommy appears to be splattered with murder evidence on “Body of Proof” (9 p.m., ABC).

• A young woman balances self-esteem issues with her aspirations to stardom in the new series “The Kandi Factory” (9 p.m., Bravo).

• A bad babysitter (Jonah Hill) takes his charges on a wild ride in the 2011 comedy “The Sitter” (9 p.m., Cinemax).
