3 is an American reality television series that premiered on July 26, 2012, on CBS in the United States. It revolved around three very different women who are brought together to search for love. They provided emotional support to each other as they deal with the realities of dating. The series was hosted by Alex Miranda. The format was based on a similar series that was made in Israel.[1]

On July 31, 2012, CBS announced that the show had been pulled from the schedule effective immediately,[2] following low ratings for its first two episodes.[3][4]

On August 5, 2012, CBS began releasing new episodes online. '@3_CBS' on Twitter confirms that 3 is now an online series.

In the spring of 2013, VH1 Brasil[5] reran the original "3" series in its entirety.

Other versions[edit]

On 3 May 2012, it was announced that a UK version would air on ITV2. This will be presented by Emma Willis.[6]
