The Real Love Boat is sailing to be an exclusively streaming series. The low-rated reality series is moving from the CBS network to the Paramount+ streaming service. The fifth episode of the series will be released on the streaming service on November 2nd. Rebecca Romijn and Jerry O’Connell host the dating competition series, which was inspired by the classic ABC comedy, The Love Boat.
Deadline revealed the following about the move:
The Real Love Boat, which is a reality take on the classic CBS romantic comedy series, launched on October 5 with 2.4M viewers and a 0.3. This was in line with the overnight performance of ABC’s The Rookie: Feds, but was down on long-running hit Survivor, which brought in 4.8M viewers and a 0.7 in the earlier slot on CBS. It has slipped to below 2M overnight viewers for its subsequent three episodes.
The Amazing Race will shift to Wednesdays at 9 PM on CBS, and reruns will fill the 10 PM timeslot for the immediate future.
What do you think? Will you continue to watch The Real Love Boat on Paramount+ starting next week? Do you think that it should be cancelled or renewed for a second season the streaming service?
