My Name Is Earl Wiki

Earl's List is a list created by Earl Hickey after he discovered the concept of karma.

The List.

While watching "Last Call with Carson Daly" in the hospital (after being hit by a car shortly after winning $100,000 on a lotto ticket), he learned that doing good will come back to reward you. He wrote down everything wrong he did in his life and started to make up for all the mistakes he had made ("Pilot").

As of the end of the series, Earl has completed at least 95 of the 277 items on the list. In one of Greg Garcia's shows, Raising Hope, a newscast in the background of the pilot episode mentions a "local man" who finally finished going through his list of wrongs that he had committed. Since it is implied that Raising Hope is in the same universe as My Name is Earl, it indicates that Earl may have finally completed his list.


Season 1[]

In Pilot, Earl made a List of 259 numbered items, but in five episodes Earl added one item each, in one episode he added two, and in another his father added one, bringing the count to 267. However, Earl uses #260 on two different occasions, so the total was only up to 266. As of the end of Season 1, Earl has so far completed 36 items, unsuccessfully attempted five, been absolved for two, started work on two items, and intends to leave one permanently unresolved as a reminder, leaving 221 items outstanding.

Season 2[]

As of GED, Earl had completed 57 items, unsuccessfully attempted five, been absolved for at least nine (with the total amount unknown because in The Birthday Party everyone at Earl's party crossed an item off as a present), started work on two items, and intended to leave one permanently unresolved as a reminder, leaving a maximum of 199 items outstanding. Earl added one to the list in three episodes, and four to the list in another, bringing the total to 273.

Season 4[]

Earl crossed off #47, #72, #87, #94 and #231, as well as another three items in The Magic Hour, We've Got Spirit Little Bad Voodoo Brother. He left on #7 in Sweet Johnny as a permanent reminder. He added #276 in Nature's Game Show, which he then crossed off, and #277 and #278 in Pinky, the first of which he also crossed off.
