Ratings, renews and renewal prospects
The premiere episode of Stan Lee`s Lucky Man fared rather well ratings-wise, with a 1.63 million audience. The second episode saw a drop to 1.23 million viewers. The reviews were rather supportive of the pilot, and full of hope for the series as a whole, but it seems like the enthusiasm was significantly curbed following the broadcast of the two subsequent episodes. It doesn`t seem hopeless, but also doesn`t have anything new to offer the viewer. Will it prove to have enough momentum to carry it into another season?
