I think this sitcom was the best ever...with the incomparable Dixie Carter's character's sarcasm and Anne Wedgeworth's character's cloying stupidity. I don't remember the actors who played other characters, but this outrageous comedy was the best and I wait for its release every week.... I don't even know whom to contact to find out about it ever being released on DVD, or where to find a bootlegger, so please, someone, let me know where to look.

Sorry; I can't help you in finding this show, but I vaguely remember it--and I do recall that Delta Burke, Dixie Carter's later "Designing Women" co-star, was also in the cast; she played a vampy character I think. For more general info you can look up the show on Wikipedia, if you trust that source for accuracy.

I myself am still pining for DVD release of Burt Reynold's excellent eighties--whoops, nineties--sitcom "Evening Shade" which co-starred "Taxi's" Marilu Henner as his wife, Ava, and in memorable supporting roles Ossie Davis (whose character had the absolutely wonderful name "Ponder Blue"), Michael Jeter (terrific as Reynold's hapless coaching assistant, Herman Stiles), Elizabeth Ashley, Charles Durning, Hal Holbrook (real-life husband of Dixie Carter) and... Ann Wedgeworth!

If I learn anything helpful about "Filthy Rich" though, I promise I'll post ASAP. In the meantime, hang in there Sam--sometimes it's just a matter of time as various rights are being sorted out before these shows can be released for distribution.

Thank you for the info--can't belieeeve I forgot about Delta! Remember the cigar-chewing yokel who played Anne's hubby; he called her Bootsy to the chagrin of Dixie especially in public. My fave episode involved Dixie complaining about their garage door not being fixed, and the time she went into the garage buck naked, caught herself on the door, and the door kept opening and closing with her hanging on it. The postman came by, and Dixie's husband asked what he said. In her most strident, loud voice she said he said HAVE A NICE DAY! The way Dixie narrates this is priceless and even now I can think about it and cry in laughter. I also am a fan of EVENING SHADE, and you didn't mention the teen who played Burt's son--a fine and good-looking young actor who unfortunately isn't seen anymore. What was his name? Perhaps I'm wrong about his acting career....

Great show, Filthy Rich. Great cast. I think it was created by the people who would do Golden Girls and Soap (Susan Harris, etc)?

Another fun sitcom, shortlived, was The Powers that Be. Took place in Washington. Featured David Hyde Pierce (before 'Frasier'), and I believe Holland Taylor, among others.

Holland Taylor is up there with Dixie, Delta, Ann, and Wendy Malick of JUST SHOOT ME. Is she currently in a sitcom? I still look out for FILTHY RICH but no luck. Have any leads to pirating? Looking for copy of SCAVENGER HUNT, a totally hilarious movie with my also fave Cloris Leachman.

I believe Filthy Rich was created by Harry Thomason and Linda Bloodworth Thomason 5 years before Designing Women , and Susan Harris had several short lived sitcoms and two of them had Patty Duke in them ,It Takes Two and Hail To The Chief , another Susan Harris effort was the series Good And Evil about two sisters ,Margaret Whitton played the good sister and Terri Garr played the evil sister ,You Tube had an epsoide before it got pulled ,The Powers That Be was created by Norman Lear ,and also starred John Forsythe possibly one of his last series before his retirement, one epsoide was aired on T.V. Land a few years ago in honor of Norman Lear's birthday and they also aired his 1991 effort Sunday Dinner which featured an unknown Terri Hatcher

I agree with you. Filthy rich was an absolute scream! I remember Delta Burk and Charles Frank were also in it. I have searched all over the net for it with no luck. So I'll be waiting also, it was too good a show not to be released on DVD.

It's so good to hear from a fellow FILTHY RICH fan!!! Please let me know when you find or hear something, and I'll do the same. Here's hoping....

I sure will. they are doing so many of the other shows of that time, and the majority not near as good of shows, so I'm hopeful!

As a former Memphian - was living there at the time - absolutely loved this show - would absolutely buy a DVD of this series if it was every released - if anyone knows if that exists - let me know - would be thrilled.
