lucky 7 review abc 'Lucky 7' canceled by ABC, first new show of the season to go downABC has pulled the plug on its rookie drama “Lucky 7” after just two episodes, making it the first cancellation of the young season.

The show about a group of lottery winners — and the unexpected consequences of their newfound wealth — was part of a lineup of all-freshman shows on ABC on Tuesday nights. “Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD” and “The Goldbergs” have fared reasonably well thus far, but the “Lucky 7” and its lead-in “Trophy Wife” have struggled.

Repeats of “Scandal” will fill the 10 p.m. Tuesday spot for the time being.

Given the show’s dismal ratings, ABC’s move is hardly a surprise. “Lucky 7” debuted to just 4.4 million viewers and a 1.3 rating among adults 18-49; Tuesday’s (Oct. 1) episode fell to just 2.6 million viewers and a 0.7 in the 18-49 demographic. The latter number was the lowest in-season rating for a first-run drama ever on ABC.

The first cancellation of the season comes a day after its first renewal: On Thursday, FOX ordered a second 13-episode season of “Sleepy Hollow” to debut next fall.
