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.

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.

Oprah Winfrey Helps Ellen DeGeneres Process Ending Her Talk Show & Tells Her She is ‘Proud’ of Her for Following Her Instincts

Oprah Winfrey was the once reigning queen of the daytime talk show, and that mantled was then passed on to Ellen DeGeneres, although their shows were at times, very different.

With the announcement by DeGeneres that she is ending her talk show after its 19th season which will run from fall 2021-into spring 2022, who else should be her first guest but the mighty Oprah who knows a thing or two about ending an enduring talk show.   Winfrey appeared virtually and praised Ellen for knowing it was time to call it quits and reflected on the ending of the Oprah Winfrey Show back in 2011.

Oprah expressed: “It’s almost 10 years ago …will be next week.  10 years ago when I was in this exact position. I know what those feelings are. I also know the feelings leading up to it. So hearing you say, and announcing to the world that it was your instinct, and that you thought long and hard about it … because anybody would know that for something that is as powerful as the show is in other people’s lives, that you would not take that lightly. And that coming to the realization that, ‘Now it is time,’ is a process.”

Ellen shared that her decision was about wanting to have, and do, and fulfill other creative outlets for herself.  When Oprah asked Ellen how she was feeling since she made the announcement and uttered the words, ‘the show is ending after its 19th season.’ Ellen responded:  “I didn’t rehearse the monologue. I knew what I was going to say, but the words hadn’t come out of my mouth. So I was okay until I started talking and it became real. Obviously, I got emotional because it’s real now. But I’m feeling good.  I feel like it’s the right thing to do, but I’m charged. It’s a weird thing to announce that I’m stopping.”   Winfrey then said, “I’m proud of you for trusting your instinct because I know that there has to be — as there was in the case for me — a lot of people around you that want to keep that train moving, who want to keep going.”

Winfrey said it was important that Ellen gave her staffers a one-year heads up, since so many of the people who work on the show built their financial and emotional and professional lives around it – and by giving everyone a year, it helps those that have worked on the show time to process and to figure out their next chapter, as well.

You can watch the entire conversation below.

Then let us know, do you think Oprah offered up great words of wisdom to Ellen? Share your thoughts in the comment section.

Ellen DeGeneres On Her Talk Show Exit Says Personal Attacks Following Toxic Workplace Backlash Were “Too Orchestrated … It Was Too Coordinated”

This morning on The Today Show, Savannah Guthrie’s sit-down interview with Ellen DeGeneres aired in what was her first TV interview since announcing on her talk show on Wednesday, that she was ending her show following its upcoming 19th season.

All of this comes on the heels of last summer’s nightmare of publicity for her and the show, when allegations emerged that Ellen and her staffers fostered a toxic workplace environment, which saw key executives ousted, and reports that Ellen was not nice, which had already been noted throughout Hollywood, previously.

In addressing whether the situation ultimately brought her clarity to end the series, DeGeneres told Guthrie, it wasn’t the reason, but when Guthrie asked if Ellen felt if she felt ‘canceled’ amidst society’s ‘cancel culture’, Ellen expressed:  “I really didn’t understand it, I still don’t understand it.  Yeah, I thought I thought something was going on like that, because it was too orchestrated, it was too coordinated. And, you know, people get picked on, but for four months straight for me, and then for me to read in the press about a toxic work environment, when, when all I’ve ever heard from every guest that comes on the show is what a happy atmosphere this is, and how, what a happy place it is.”

Ellen also informed Guthrie it was emotional for her to tell her staff the show would be coming to a close after next season: “I’m glad that before it leaked, I got to tell my staff and my crew, from my own words – that they didn’t hear it anyplace else. Because I haven’t been sleeping. I’ve been trying to anticipate how to tell them and, you know, hope that everybody would take it okay. A lot of people were very emotional. I got emotional.”

On today’s episode of The Ellen DeGeneres show look for Oprah Winfrey to be the special guest, which is sure to have the famous talk show hosts discussing Ellen’s exit from daytime.

Watch a portion of Ellen’s interview from this morning on the Today Show below.

What do you think of how Ellen is sharing that she feels the attacks we too orchestrated against her last summer? Do you agree, or not agree? Let us know in the comment section.

Ellen DeGeneres to End Her Talk Show After Its 19 Season

Ellen DeGeneres informed her staff yesterday that she has made the decision to end her talk show after its upcoming 19th season.  She will sit down with Oprah Winfrey on the May 13th episode of the The Ellen DeGeneres Show to discuss her decision to step away.

In an exclusive interview with the Hollywood Reporter, Ellen shared: “When you’re a creative person, you constantly need to be challenged – and as great as this show is, and as fun as it is, it’s just not a challenge anymore.”

The show’s end comes on the heels of all of the turmoil last summer when several former and current employees accused Ellen of fostering a toxic work environment.  As well, several key producers were let-go as a result.

 

When speaking with THR, DeGeneres said of last summer’s revelations and accusations against her: “It was four solid months. And you have to understand, in that time, someone got into our house and robbed us and I lost four animals — three cats and a dog died. It was a tsunami. When it started, with that stupid ‘someone couldn’t look me in the eye’ or whatever the first thing was, it’s like a crest of a wave. Like, ‘This isn’t going to be that big of a wave.’ And then it just keeps getting bigger and bigger until it was out of control. And I really, honestly, felt like, ‘I don’t deserve this. I don’t need this. I know who I am. I’m a good person.’  And I was sitting back going, ‘If I was someone watching this, I would think, ‘Well, there must be some truth to it because it’s not stopping.’ Of course they’re going to believe this because I’m not addressing it because I was told not to and you can imagine what that felt like. And it’s a lot to live up to. I started saying “be kind to one another” because I really believe people should be kind to one another and so it was easy clickbait to say, ‘Oh, the be kind lady isn’t so kind.’ … I am kind, I’m also a woman and I’m a boss.”

Earlier this morning, The Daily Mall UK reported that Ellen DeGeneres and Warner Brothers, were expected to make an announcement that she will end her talk show after the 2021-2022 season.  According to their sources, DeGeneres told her team she “has had enough and told her team that she’s done.”

It should be noted that the The Ellen DeGeneres Show has seen a steady decline in the ratings as well.  The ratings for total households from February 2020 to February 2021 were down 40% in New York City and Chicago; and in Los Angeles it lost 59%.

Ellen’s talk show has produced over 3,000 episodes.

So, what do you think of Ellen deciding to conclude her talk show? Comment below.
