And the winner is…. ABC’s Lucky 7.
The ABC drama wins the award for being this fall’s first canceled series and after only two episodes (and 12 days into the season). Lucky 7 premiered to 4.4 million viewers and a woeful 1.3 adults 18-49 rating last week, making it ABC’s lowest-rated drama premiere in years despite the evening launching and lead in with Agents of S.H.I..E.L.D. For its second episode last Tuesday night, Lucky 7′s adult demo rating plummeted to a 0.7 to rank as broadcast’s lowest-rated show that evening. Scandal repeats will fill its 10 p.m. slot starting next week.
We never watched the series. And apparently neither did any of you. Lucky 7 followed seven down on their luck Queens, N.Y. residents who split a $45 million lottery win, and all the problems and heartaches their windfall causes. While it seems lots of lottery winners come into troubles, the premise is very dumb.
What new series will be next on the chopping block? Some say CBS We are Men or Fox’s Dad’s. We personally vote for Dad’s (especially because we only made it through 14 minutes for the first episode). It was HARD to watch.
