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.

Daytime Emmys To Remain Virtual For Upcoming 2021 Ceremony

With an uncertain situation of when live events can get back to normal, or as they have been in the past prior to the coronavirus pandemic, The National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences (NATAS) announced today that it plans on keeping next year’s Daytime Emmys award show virtual, to allow for the 2022 awards cycle to stay on track.

In fact, all of NATAS’s award ceremonies including: the News and Documentary Emmys, Technology & Engineering Emmys and the Sports Emmys will also remain virtual next year.

The Daytime Emmys became the first major award show to air a virtual presentation that others followed back in late June of this year and aired on CBS.

In a statement, NATAS chairman and CEO Adam Sharp expressed on the organization’s decision:“The current timetables articulated by manufacturers project mass availability of vaccinations for the entire U.S. population by mid-summer 2021, potentially permitting a return to more traditional in-person ceremonies later in the fall. However, we have determined that delaying our 2021 events to possibly allow for a compressed calendar of in-person Emmy ceremonies late in the year would result in unacceptable delays to our awards cycle for 2022. Instead, we have decided to remain “virtual” in the format of our ceremonies for 2021 while relying on a substantially pre-COVID awards calendar. In so doing, we believe we will be best-positioned to return to a full, on-time, traditional schedule of in-person ceremonies in 2022.

The dates currently under consideration for the 48th annual Daytime Emmys which would be via two or three nights of presentations are: a combination of dates from Friday, June 25, Saturday, July 17 and/or Sunday, July 18.

For those entering the competition, the entry deadline is February, 17, 2021 with  the nominations not to come till May or June.

So, what do you think about the Daytime Emmys going virtual again for 2021? Comment below.
