  • Not a bad show.

    At least at the beginning it was pretty fun to watch. But as a result of low ratings or something the writers start changing the show. Then it wasn't that funny anymore, and I stopped caring about the show.
  • Bring back the show u ended WITH A PART 1!!!!!! (my name is earl)

    Ok My name is earl was a AWESOME show about a man trying to right the wrongs in his life he goes through

    tons of challenges like winning the lottery then getting hit by a car which sends him to the hospital then his wife Joy walks in and hands him a divorce paper he signs then she hands him his stuff. THATS JUST THE FIRST EPISODE! That episode made me repeatedly watch episode after episode you get the idea, Then i got to dodges dad that was a awesome episode but at the end my screen turned black and said.. TO BE CONTINUED... Are u kidding me you end a show in TO BE CONTINUED!? Just because you didn't have the numbers of viewers YOU wanted?! I loved the show my family loved the show! ALL THESE PEOPLE LOVED THE SHOW! And then you expect us to be ok with Raising hope? YOU HAVE TO END WHAT YOU STARTED!!!!!!!! Not in a part 1!!!!!!! The characters are funny adorable low life losers A THOUSAND WORDS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! JUST BRING BACK MY NAME IS EARLmoreless
  • Amazing

    This show is funny. From the quirky jokes and the character traits are just funny. Randy is my favorite. He is always making a dumb remark that always makes me laugh. My favorite is when Earl was broke and trying to sell his car.
  • They Should Make A Movie Or The ReallyLast Season

    I think they should make a movie or another season because in the episode "Dodge Dad" they found out who his real father is. And on the paper work it said that Darnell wasnt the real father to Earl Jr. Which said "To Be But they stop and they should finish off.
  • i hate when shows are cancelled

    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.

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