Lucky 7: Cancelled by ABC

Lucky 7 canceledAs expected, ABC has cancelled Lucky 7 after two low-rated episodes. The drama is the first of the 2013-14 season to fall.

Lucky 7 revolves around a group of service employees who form a workplace family and win the lottery together. The cast includes Summer Bishil, Lorraine Bruce, Alexandra Castillo, Christine Evangelista, Stephen Louis Grush, Matt Long, Anastasia Phillips, Luis Antonio Ramos, and Isiah Whitlock Jr.

The series debuted to a disappointing 1.3 rating in the 18-49 demographic with 4.43 million viewers. It was last in its timeslot. This week, the second episode plunged 46% to a 0.7 rating with 2.62 million. It quickly became the network’s lowest-rated show.

ABC has pulled the show from the schedule effective immediately and will replace it with reruns of Scandal, a drama whose season debut hit a new series high last night.

Production will shut down some time next week. It’s not known how many episodes have been produced or if the remaining installments will ever be made available.

What do you think? Are you sorry that Lucy 7 has been cancelled? What do you think went wrong? Was it the premise, the cast, or what?

    I was giving it a chance it wasn’t that bad. I was enjoying it and wish I could of at least got a whole season. But I am watching like five new shows right now so I guess losing one isn’t the end of the world.

      I love the show but with all the other shows returning it was hard for it to get high ratings I would love to finish seeing the episodes

    Its so frustrating to get interested in a new show only to have it cancelled before it even gets a chance. Why should I commit my time to any more new series if they are just going to get cancelled as soon as they start.

    I agree with Angie
    I too was sucked in…I got hooked after the first episode. Then the second episode was even better. I couldn’t wait for the third…I was so disappointed. I don’t think they gave it a long enough chance….I too wish I knew what happened…

    Attention all who liked ‘Lucky 7′: It’s just an American remake of a UK show on BBC One called ‘The Syndicate.’ (In the UK, a lottery pool is called a syndicate.) The storyline of ‘Lucky 7′ is pretty much exactly the same as that of the first season (2012) of ‘The Syndicate.’ The second season (2013) of the UK show follows a different group of winning characters, and when the third season airs (probably 2015), I guess it will follow a third group of winners. So, if you liked ‘Lucky 7,’ then check out ‘The Syndicate’ on Netflix, DVD, Hulu, or wherever. It’s the same show, only better.

      Did you see the ratings for this show? A 0.7 demo rating for the second episode is the single worst rating for any drama episode in the ENTIRE HISTORY of ABC. The network would have lost millions of dollars if they kept in on the air until January.

    Dang it. I just got started watching this one after the second episode.
    The first episode was VERY SLOW, probably why it didn’t do well. Plus the lead bad guy wasnt very believable. He can act fine, he just doesnt look the tough bad guy type.

    Oh well.
