Filthy Rich and NEXT Canceled by Fox


Two of broadcast's only new scripted originals this fall have already been canceled. Filthy Rich and NEXT, both Fox dramas, won't be back next season. Both shows have been abysmal performers for Fox, but didn't exactly have much lead-in support. Both are quite early into their runs, with Filthy Rich airing five episodes (of a ten-episode run) and NEXT airing just two. Of the two, Filthy Rich was marginally better in the ratings department with a 0.35 average. NEXT trails it narrowly with a 0.31 average. Filthy Rich, a Louisiana-set soap centering on a family that owns a religious-based TV network as scandal and tragedy upends their lives, starred Kim Cattrall, Gerald McRaney, Aubrey Dollar, Melia Kreiling and Corey Cott, among others. NEXT, a sci-fi drama about a rogue AI system, stars John Slattery, Fernanda Andrade, Michael Mosley and Elizabeth Cappuccino, among others. Both series were holdovers from the 2019-20 season, originally ordered in May 2019 before being held to the current TV season, to give Fox something to air amid the COVID-19 pandemic. Both are correct predictions for The TV Ratings Guide.
