Filthy, Rich and Homeless doing it tough
Ratings: SBS series has an uphill battle to attract viewers when reality shows are fighting it out.
While a nation is hooked on cooking and locked-up reality stars, a series about homelessness is doing it tough.
A third season of SBS series Filthy, Rich and Homeless drew 272,000 last night, trailing others in its timeslot. That’s down on its first season which drew numbers around the 350,000 mark. But it’s also a big ask to attract eyeballs when reality juggernauts don’t finish till around the 9 – 9:15pm.
