ABC's “Lucky 7” is canceled after only two episodes, becoming the first new fall TV show to get the ax and it did so in record breaking time. The show got the rug pulled out from under it after only 12 days into the season. According to Inside TV on Oct. 4, the "Lucky 7" show, which was following seven lottery winners who split that 45 million jackpot a while ago was seen as “sappy and silly.”
The show was supposed to depict the problems and daily changes of these seven folks and their families after winning such a large windfall. When it came down to it, this wasn’t the economy for people to want to watch the “problems” of new found millionaires. These seven gas station co-workers split a lottery jackpot of $45 million and now life has changed for them. "Lucky 7" was going to show the positives and negatives of new found wealth.
The show debuted strong but within the next two episodes it bottomed out, prompting ABC to pull it from its lineup without even giving it a chance to recoup some of the ratings. It seemed as if ABC had an inkling that the show wasn't long for this world. They didn't order any new commercial art for the show, which they would have if they expected to keep it going.
ABC has taken the unprecedented step of taking this show off after only going 12 days into the fall season, the earliest a show’s been pulled in the past is about three weeks into the season. This show didn’t even make it two weeks. For now ABC will run “Scandals” repeats during that time slot. It sounds like the life of a several millionaires is just boring!
