Lucky 7 First Canceled Show of the Year

LUCKY 7 - "Pilot" - The Gold Star pals have never lost hope that they could potentially cash in on the winnings of a lifetime. Matt Korzak(Matt Long) could get his very pregnant girlfriend, Mary Lavecchia (Christine Evangelista), and their other child out of his mother's house. Matt's brother, Nicky (Stephen Louis Grush), an ex-con, could pay off a dangerous debt and pursue the crush he has on co-worker Samira Lashari (Summer Bishil). Samira, a second-generation Pakistani immigrant and a talented musician, could finally afford to go to her dream school, Juilliard. Denise Dibinsky (Lorraine Bruce), the tender-hearted Gold Star cashier, is struggling to lose weight and regain her former glory, but the winnings could provide an opportunity for her to rebuild her crumbling marriage. Leanne Maxwell (Anastasia Phillips), a single mother, will try to keep her past hidden despite the spotlight the lottery win puts on her. Bob Harris (Isiah Whitlock, Jr.), the store's manager and quite possibly the nicest man in the world, wants to buy the Gold Star and make it into the perfect workplace. And cheerful and charming Antonio Clemente (Luis Antonio Ramos) will discover ways to capitalize on the group's win in order to give his wife, Bianca (Alex Castillo), and their three kids a whole new life, in ABC's new drama, "Lucky 7," premiering TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 24 (10:00-11:00 p.m., ET) on the ABC television Network.

Farewell, Lucky 7. ABC's ensemble drama about lottery winners has unsurprisingly nabbed this year's inglorious title of First Canceled TV Show of the Season. ABC will be replacing it starting this Tuesday with reruns of Scandal, the network confirmed. Lucky 7's first two episodes were not very good, but if you really liked them in that way we all sometimes find ourselves just liking certain things even though we know there's not a tremendous amount of objective good in them, go ahead and watch 2006's The Nine on iTunes.
