The new drama gets the early axe.
October 4, 2013
ABC has cancelled freshman drama Lucky 7 after just two episodes. The show got off to a rough start last week when its premiere pulled in a lowly 1.7 rating among adults 18-49. Things got worse this week, where it fell to a dreadful 0.7, causing the network to pull the plug.
Lucky 7 becomes the first broadcast series of the 2013-14 season to be cancelled.

Wish they hadn't tried to put so much into it. No need to have robbed the guy. Just should have let the winners be followed.

Although the show was cancelled over 2 weeks ago... I still decided to check out both episodes... I sat through both... It wasn't horrible, but, pretty bad... The acting and direction were not great... I was, however, looking forward to that foster mom storyline

The quality of ABC's shows lie on the extremes of amazing and craptastic. Lucky 7 was craptastic. With shows like Modern Family,, The Goldbergs, and Super Fun Night, ABC isn't going to let an embarrassing show like Lucky 7 stay on. From the premise, I'm shocked this had two episodes. It could have been a TV movie.

John.. I would say the draw of star power mainly comes in to play with comedies. Most of these TV actors have been in and out of supporting roles and are looking for their big shot/steady home. This show just didn't really have a network television show feel. Probably couldve made it a season on cable network like FX or USA who have a niche of people that will give anything that comes on their network primetime a chance.

Boom: I'm not one to usually respond, but since I checked out the link you provided, I felt I needed to make a comment. Windfall, the show the imdb link goes to for those who were wondering and didn't want to take the time to follow it, took the storyline of a family of lottery winners in a totally different direction. In fact, in my opinion, that statement is really the only thing similar between the two shows. Personally I didn't like either one. That said, I'd still rather see networks at least give shows a fighting chance. These days, a lot of us don't even bother to check out new shows until we find out if they will at least air the episodes initially purchased. The list of shows that should/could have made it if: a) the networks hadn't created audiences afraid to become invested in shows and b) networks committed to air episodes and/or c) networks/showrunners at the very least gave viewers a short blurb of the intended story for cancelled shows is a VERY long list!

John, you clearly never watched The Wire. And you apparently didn't understand my comment. I'm not defending the show but a lack of star actors is a stupid thing to criticize. As mentioned, The Wire and The Sopranos casted a bunch of unknown actors. Didn't stop the shows from being quality television. I'm not saying that this show was quality television but it didn't suck because they casted unknown actors.

I think you meant "already."
