I would say I’m surprised, but I’m not. Deadline is reporting that Filthy Rich has been canceled by Fox just five episodes into the debut season. It is expected that the show will continue to run its ten episode order.
Filthy Rich has had low ratings through the first five episodes of the season, which is most certainly why it was not renewed for a full or second season. To me, this doesn’t come as a great surprise. I have been covering Filthy Rich every week and I’ve been engaged less each episode. Now, that’s not to say that it hasn’t had its good moments or that it didn’t have potential. Because it did.
I loved Ginger’s storyline and I thought she was hilarious. It just wasn’t the right time for the show in my opinion. I think it would have hit differently if it was released on a streaming network or if it was a summer run. You can catch up with my reviews of Filthy Rich here.
