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?

    Why wasn’t Lucky 7 given more of a chance. I think it would have caught on, to me it was like a dream come true… take off all of the reality crap and put this back on.

    I liked the 2 episodes they did show. It wasn’t given a chance with just 2 shows. I think it wasn’t on during a good time slot. Abc has had far worse shows than this last longer probably due to the time slot. I’m sure if they can put it on at a better time or day it would have done better in ratings.

    Interesting premise, one of the best new shows in a long time Just can,t imagine why it was cancelled so soon Even after just two episodes, character development seemed good and most characters very likable. Show was well written even with so many actors to write for.

    Loved this show…very pissed off and disappointed! This is the first show I’ve started out watching on ABC in over 10 years…oh well, ill just go back to my cable (upper) channel shows.

    I agree with Andrew S. I’m watching so many that ABC is doing me a favor by filtering some out. I thought it was “ok” not great, but not bad either. I was very interested in the web of all the people and seein how it played out. Hopefully they will at least play what they have done so far.
