    No. USA mega.com usually has the powerball and mega millions results about 5-8 minutes after the drawing at 11:00.

        I Agree! Plus Jorli D is faster than the TV.

          I don't even know if they have it on tv in TN, never seen it. It's computer generated anyway. They could pretty much tell us anything they want and we wouldn't know any better. The people here in TN would prefer real ball drawings but our Lottery Officials really don't care what we want. They're letting us eat cake. And I think the cake's from Walmart. Have you had their new "whipped icing"?  It looks exactly like real whipped cream and tastes like you took a bite out of a Motel6 mattress. Yummy!

            Nope. I saw a drawing, or rather the results on the news while at a restaurant once. I go to the state lottery site to check.

              We watch it when WGN-TV shows it, but we're not in the Chicago area so they don't always show it.

              If WGN doesn't show it sometimes we can get the Powerball results on the Paducah station but they only show Kentucky numbers for the opther drawings, not Illinois.

              The stuffed monekey we have for luck likes to watch it.

              Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

              There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.

                  Just wondering how many of you in here watch the lottery drawing on TV?

                  I try to as much as possible.  They are only shown during the week here in NY nothing on weekends.  This month has been alot of screaming at the LAST ball that comes up (even in the 4way) as I have been one off more times than I can count.

                  Its great to watch your number show! I luv watching them.

                  Money won is twice as good as money earned!

                    Nope, usually too busy at that time to watch the drawing, they usually have a small corner of the screen to watch the drawing while the news is on. 

                    Aren't Walmart cakes yummy? For my son's birthday party last year, we got delicious Elmo character cupcakes, made to look like a single cake for the kids, well needless to say we start pulling apart the cupcakes and a horde of ants fall out from in the middle=DISGUSTING! I had to leave the party to return the cake, a twenty minute drive, to get another cake, and my money back. The cake wasn't what I wanted or had and I ended up giving it away. I will NEVER buy a Walmart cake again!

                      If I am at home at the time of the drawing, I will watch it.

                      Unfortunately, Virginia doesn't air its drawings anymore, but they put drawing videos on the Internet. When Virginia did air its drawings, I watched them.

                      Today's winning 3-ball is going to be a number between 000 and 999.

                      In a lot of states, lotteries benefit education. That makes the REAL winners the only people who can't play!

                            I don't have a TV, so no.

                            I get my drawing results online. Here or at the Texas official lottery site (when LP is lagging).

                              LOL! I've eaten ants before and they taste a lot better than that cake from there. They don't even give you much cake, it's all frosting. That store is the absolute best at making stuff look good and taste bad. Their latest scam is the one I mentioned - "whipped icing" - (gag, wretch, puke, barf). The produce is the same - looks good but doesn't even taste like anything. Get peaches or plums or apples, it doesn't matter cuz they all taste like the same thing - nothin. You know you're eatin something cuz you're chewing but there's just no taste. We go to the farmers market when we can or a regular grocery store. It's true that you get what you pay for.
