The ABC series Lucky 7 wasn’t so lucky after-all and managed to be the first show of the fall 2013 season to get the axe dropped on them. But the show is no longer alone when it comes to shows that have been cancelled as joining Lucky 7 and We Are Men in the cancellation column are the NBC shows Ironside and Welcome to the Family.
Per a report form Deadline:
Replacing “Ironside” in the 10 p.m. Wednesday time slot for November and December will be a string of original programming, including new episodes of “Dateline” crime stories, “Saturday Night Live” holiday-themed specials and holiday music specials starring Kelly Clarkson and Michael Buble. Highlights of the detailed week-by-week list are included below.
NBC details their full plans when it comes to replacing the cancelled shows in a press release put out today, but basically Ironside and Welcome to the Family won’t be missed too sorely as they sign off the air after rocky starts to their first and only seasons.
It’s not a shock that either of these shows got axed, seeing as they were both leading candidates to be cancelled when the topic of shows in the brink was brought up. Now that they are gone, attention turns to other shows that are struggling such as the FOX show Dads as well as a few others.
