"Lucky 7" officially ran out of luck. Get used to that joke because, if you follow prime time network TV, you’ll hear it often in regard to that "Lucky 7."
The show was officially canceled due to abysmal ratings, which made it the first cancelation of the 2013-2014 fall season.
The drama, which centers on a group of gas station attendants in Queens who win the lottery, aired at 10 p.m. EDT on Tuesday nights, but it failed to attract enough viewers in the key 18-49 demographic, whom they were aiming to attract.
According to the Huffington Post, that slot will be filled with re-runs of ABC’s hit show "Scandal."
The show's cancelation prompted a slew of media outlets to examine the network's other new shows to see if they are likely to be canceled as well. ABC is owned by The Walt Disney Company (NYSE:DIS).
