The soapy Filthy Rich has been short-lived.  News tonight has that the series featuring Sex and the City favorite, Kim Cattrall and former Guiding Light star, Aubrey Dollar (Ex-Marina) has been canceled by Fox in its first season.

After her husband dies in a plane crash, Margaret and family are stunned to learn that he fathered three illegitimate children, all of whom are written into his will — threatening their family name and fortune. Melia Kreiling, the aforementioned Aubrey Dollar, Corey Cott, Benjamin Levy Aguilar, Mark L. Young and Olivia Macklin co-star along with Steve Harris and Aaron Lazar.

Only started watching this, but I’m guessing it’s like anything else with a religious theme on network TV….

The religious reich types got all offended for no reason, and started making threatening letters/phone calls/tweets to the network.

You know…. just like my old friend JC would have done.

They got Fox to cancel the series loosely based on my own life (Lucifer) but it was moved to Netflix where it’s doing great. So things don’t always work out in favor of the religious censors.

Oh well, but they crammed too much too soon and one thing I know the show was very revealing what goes on behind the scenes for some folks. I loved the show. 🙂

Fox doomed it by running 2 or 3 episodes and pre-emoting it for football?! Killed the momentum. Too bad

Sigh. It had so much potential, but networks don’t give shows a chance to get on solid ground anymore. If they don’t come out of the gate in perfect shape and with high ratings, they are doomed. It’s a reason viewers are afraid to take a chance on new shows. You only end up disappointed.

Oh Gee, was just starting to make sense of this unholy mess.
I really loved Schitts Creek and that’s over too.

Like Daniel of old, I saw the hand-writing on the wall as soon as the first show aired. No chance to grow and fear of protests. I really liked this show and will watch it to the end. Stupid decision to cancel it, but I don’t run that uptight network anyway. I never saw this as a “fit” for FOX; maybe the CW or whatever it’s called now. Sigh. Just another reason to skip the shows on network.

I like Kim Cattrall. She generally is a good actress. I also like most things that I’ve seen by Tate Taylor. That being said, I watched one episode of this show and thought it was TERRIBLE. Cattrall really was lousy trying to play a Southerner. Her accent was beyond horrible. I’m not surprised to hear the show is gone. I wish Cattrall and Taylor better luck in future projects but this one got the quick death it deserved.

It was different & entertaining…..a nice change from the overload of police drama, reality shows & silly sitcoms.
It had a strong cast which kept the storyline interesting. Too bad it didn’t get a chance to develop further.

Sorry to hear this- enjoyed the show and thought the theme was different/entertaining. Also loved the cast.
Wasn’t a medical, crime, detective, reality show.
It was refreshing to see something different.
