ABC Cancels Lucky 7 After 2 Shows

By Allison Moore

Washington, D.C. (October 5, 2013) - ABC has cancelled the rookie drama Lucky 7 after just two episodes, making it not only unlucky but the first show of the Fall 2013 season to get the ax.

The Hollywood Reporter writes that starting October 8, ABC will replace Lucky 7 in the Tuesday, 10 p.m. ET time slot with repeats of Scandal.

Lucky 7, which followed
a group of lottery winners, fared poorly in the ratings, falling from 4.4 million in its debut to 2.8 million last Tuesday.

The show edged out Fox's Dads as the first show to be cancelled during the Fall season. Many critics believed Dads, which has averaged about three million viewers, would be the first to get cancelled because of its allegedly racist content as well as poor ratings.

But The Hollywood Reporter noted that Lucky 7 suffered the lowest ratings ever for a broadcast drama during a TV season.

Lucky 7 was based on a British series called The Syndicate.
