The Real Love Boat Moves from CBS to Paramount+

By Jessica Lerner 

The Real Love Boat is docking somewhere else.

The series, a reality take on the classic CBS romantic comedy series, is moving from CBS to Paramount+ for the remainder of its run.

The show premiered on Oct. 5 to just 2.41 million viewers and each of the following three episodes saw fewer than two million viewers. These numbers are among the lowest for any non-CW broadcast series launch this fall.


The first four episodes are already available on Paramount+, and new episodes will air weekly on the streamer.

Co-hosted by Rebecca Romijn and Jerry O’Connell, the reality competition series brings singles together to cruise the Mediterranean on a luxury Princess cruise ship in search of love.

The captain and cruise director play crucial roles in setting up dates and navigating the romantic and occasionally choppy waters ahead, just like in the original scripted series.

The couples’ chemistry and compatibility will be put to the test with surprising new singles, challenges and destination dates.

One winning couple will disembark in the last port after nearly a month at sea and receive a cash prize along with an unforgettable journey courtesy of Princess Cruises.

In collaboration with Buster Productions, Eureka Productions produces the television series. Chris Culvenor, Paul Franklin, Wes Dening and Jay Bienstock executive produce for Eureka.
