It has been a rough start for the ABC network this fall season. While some of the new shows have done “okay” there are a few that are not doing well at all. “Lucky 7” was put on Tuesday nights in the 9 p.m. CST time slot, and it didn’t do well for the premiere. The second episode aired and the ratings were less than half of what they were for the premiere. According to an article posted by Deadline.com on October 2, it looks like ABC may be cancelling the show, and sooner rather than later. It seems to be a trend with the ABC network.
“Lucky 7” fell to the wayside with publicity and promotion. Several comments on Twitter have suggested that no one had heard much about the show. If you are a regular ABC network fan, chances are you may have seen one or two commercials for the show. The actors have Twitter accounts that they are actively using, yet each of them only have a handful of followers.
It looks like “Lucky 7” will be the show ABC cancels before mid-season this year. Last year it was the drama, “Red Widow,” which was pulled from the famous Sunday-night lineup. Only two episodes have aired, but the network may allow it a few more weeks to see if ratings will improve. It is unlikely that this show will last past mid-season, if at all.
