For those that had the cancellation of Lucky 7 in the office pool to be broadcast TV’s first big scheduling change of the 2013 Fall TV Season, consider your bets ruined! In surprise move, and I only say surprise because of the type of announcement it is, a new Fall TV show has been renewed already!
Congratulations to FOX’s Sleepy Hollow. They get a 13 episode season two. No wonder too, because the first three episodes have pulled a 3.5, 3.1 and 3.0 in the 18-49 demo live, and in the second week that number went up to a 4.6 when DVR plus 3 was factored in. Yep, that is a bona fide hit for any network these days, let alone FOX. Number of viewers has been an average over three episodes in the 8.5 million range (not counting that DVR 3 and 7 stuff).
I know plenty of good things have been said about this show on our @TVFTROU twitter page, so if you’re looking for a new show to pick up that will be around for a while, you have one!
To offer perspective, Lucky 7 just got a .7 in the demo and 2.6 million viewers. Yep, we expect that announcement any hour now.
