Due to dismal ratings, the series (as well as the one which followed it at the time, Tucker's Witch) was lifted from the schedule following this broadcast. Filthy Rich's lead-in during October and November, Alice, only lasted a few more weeks before it too was pulled. All three were relaunched in early 1983 in better time periods, but only Alice would live to see another year.
