Show Summary

Earl Hickey's life has been full of poor choices and mistakes, but after winning a small lottery jackpot he has an epiphany and vows to change his ways. Upon discovering that he is the holder of a winning ticket, Earl is hit by a car and the ticket blows out of his limp hand as he lies unconscious in the street. While recovering in the hospital and watching television, Earl has a karmic epiphany, thanks to Carson Daly, who attributes his success to doing good for others. A light bulb goes off in Earl's dim head and he sets out to right every wrong he has done starting with a grade school geek. The series won 5 Emmy Awards for Outstanding Casting for a Comedy Series, Outstanding Directing for a Comedy Series - Pilot, Outstanding Single-Camera Picture Editing for a Comedy Series - Joy's Wedding, Outstanding Writing for a Comedy Series - Pilot and Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series - Jaime Pressly.

  • i hate when shows are cancelled

    9.0
    great idea. but tv shows about losers never last becuase they are good, but don't do great in ratings. i still have to say NBC is the best network for giving creative shows a chance.

    (my name is earl, community, chuck etc) i just wish they could stay.
  • About this series

    10
    It had great casting in season one and acting for Jaime Pressly in season two.
  • I dont know how this show got canceled.

    9.0
    This show had it all. It was an original idea about an ex-con who tries to make ammends with his past and correct his wrong doings while learning valuble lessons alnog the way. Most of the characters were original and intresting to watch. Even the antagonists were intresting to watch. The jokes somehow felt original and they were what really spiced up this show in quality. I dont know why good shows like this get cancelled while shows with a 2 or lower last longer.moreless

    Fox's new sitcom is trying to be two shows at once, but it's really just one: an unfunny comedy.
