    NBC did a lot of promotion for this show - they even showed previews for it in movie theatres before the feature started!

    Anyways, it was nothing spectacular but it wasn't bad, either. Jason Lee is likable as 'Earl,' and Jaime Pressly is good also as 'Joy,' his white-trash ex-wife. It's too bad that Jaime gets typecast in these roles so often - people who view her as the blonde bimbo should've seen her work as 'Audrey' on The WB's "Jack & Jill," or her guest turn as the secretary on the NBC comedy "Happy Family." She's gorgeous and talented - if "My Name Is Earl" does good in the ratings, I hope the writers give Jaime more to do in upcoming episodes.
