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.
