Thus far there’s been no word on ABC execs changing their minds about ordering additional episodes of Dirty Sexy Money. Not only that, but it looks like the network’s not going to air at least one of the installments they’ve already made.
As you might have noticed, last week’s Thanksgiving eve episode was pulled in lieu of a Barbara Walter interview with President-elect Obama. The episode titled “The Facts” centers around Clark the chauffeur (Shawn Michael Patrick). While the Darling family are enjoying Thanksgiving at their New York mansion, Clark must fend off a relentless and sexy reporter (Rena Sofer) by setting the record straight about his employers.
The episode is essentially a clip show and features bits and pieces of unused film from season one. The installment also includes footage of missing-in-action sister Juliet (Samaire Armstrong) and an update on the character’s love life.
Unfortunately for fans of the spoiled rich girl, ABC isn’t planning to air the episode. The like reasons are the installment’s the turkey-day theme and because of the series’ low ratings. Last night’s drew a disappointing 5.67 million viewers and 1.7/5 in the demo.
On the positive side, it seems that Money fans will get some closure in what’s likely to be the series finale. The mystery of who killed Dutch George (the Darling’s former attorney and Nick’s father) will finally be solved — and apparently it’s a big twist! The bigger question remains if the network will keep the show on the schedule long enough to air it.
If they pull Money before all of the episodes have been shown, the finale will likely be made available online. If not, a season two DVD set is very likely and that’ll contain every dirty sexy minute of the second season, including the missing Thanksgiving episode. Stay tuned!
