As 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?
