Pathetic threesome, agreed hosts (6)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

meagre

'pathetic' is the definition.
(thesaurus)

'threesome agreed hosts' is the wordplay.
'hosts' indicates a hidden word.
'MEAGRE' can be found hidden inside 'threesome agreed'.

(Other definitions for meagre that I've seen before include "Thin on the ground, scarce" , "Thin or scanty" , "Scanty, not plentiful" , "Miserable" , "Inadequate, scanty" .)

I've seen this clue in The Independent.
