ABC canceled hour-long drama Lucky 7 on Friday after two low-rated episodes and became one of the shortest-lived dramas in the network’s history. The Tuesday drama premiered on Sept. 24, with a 1.3 adult 18-49 demo and dropped to a 0.7 in its second airing, declining 46 percent week-to-week and drawing just 2.6 million viewers opposite CBS’ Person Of Interest, NBC’s Chicago Fire, FX’s Sons Of Anarchy, and even a repeat of American Dad on Adult Swim. Repeats of Scandal (whose season premiere drew 10.5 million viewers Thursday night), takes over Lucky 7’s time slot immediately.
Not counting NBC SN’s The Crossover with Michelle Beadle (an early fringe sports talk show axed Sept. 24), “Lucky 7” becomes the season’s first casualty.
And you know what that means…
Lucky 7 (ABC, 2013) A group of South Bronx service station employees pool resources together and win the lottery – and feel the aftermath that follows. Canceled after two episodes.
