The First to Go

As the fall 2013 TV season rolls on with news shows being presented each week, we already have our first casualty: “Lucky 7.” The ABC hour long comedy (although, I guess some thought it was a drama), lasted only two episodes. According to Nielsen, the show premiered with 4.4 million viewers and dropped down to just 0.7 the second week. This is especially surprising as one of the show’s lead-ins was the new “Marvels Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” which ranked as the network’s highest rated shows. I liked the show (I even called it a winner), as it was clever, funny and clean, but I guess that is not what viewers at large are looking for.

On the other end of the spectrum, it appears that FOX’s “Sleepy Hollow” will be around for a while as the network has already been renewed for a second full season of the show. According to Entertainment Weekly, this is extremely odd since the show doesn’t even have a full season order of the show for this year! “Sleepy Hollow” premiered to 13.6 million viewers. I also liked the pilot for this show, but the previews for the shows to follow made me question if I will stick with it.
