The new tv show about a group of lottery winners will premiere tonight at 10:00 on ABC. I watch anything and everything abouy the lottery, but I got a feeling the show only last for a few episodes. NBC had a show called Windfall with the same premise and it got cancelled after 13 episodes. I think the reason these type of shows don't work because it is fiction. The lottery changed my life is better because it is actual lottery winners telling their stories. I will watch the first episode tonight:

After years of chipping into a lottery pool, seven gas station employees are changed as their dream comes true.

Guess Who's Back?

              Yes, I would rather have a show based on real life situations (as real as it could be - considering much of the "reality TV show "category is not really unscripted and unedited). I also think this will be a short lived series. Sometimes you never know what show will become the next hit though. Look at Duck Dynasty. I never would have thought that show would have lasted or would have become a ratings bonanza for cable tv. Whenever I see a commercial for Duck Dynasty, for some reason rdgrnr comes to mindSmiley

                    Yep, anything fictional on TV just does not last.  Now, if it were a reality show, it would probably last as long as American Idol.

                    People in America just can't wrap their heads around fiction/fantasy anymore, everything has to be "real"

                      Whats funny about your statement is that "Reality" shows are heavily choreographed to get the best TV moments.  Remember ratings equal more $$$$$ so the networks do anything and everything to boost ratings.  Always, let me repeat... always follow the money.

                        I work in reality television and there is very little 'reality' to it, other than real places instead of sets and real people instead of actors reading lines. The producers don't tell the people exactly what to say, but they do tell them what to talk about (prompts, suggestions, etc). Also, scenarios are often shot multiple times to get the best effect. There are times where emotions like 'surprise' are authentic but it is extremely rare for any genuine emotions to come up because you've got these big cameras in your face. In other words, it's all for show.

                        Lottery Changed My Life is more biographical than this series would be....and people like that. People like people they can relate to. That's why reality TV is popular. Seemingly 'ordinary' people having extraordinary events or opportunities.

                        If the chances of winning the jackpot are so slim, why play when the jackpot is so small? Your chances never change, but the potential payoff does.
                        If a crystal ball showed you the future of the rest of your life, and in that future you will never win a jackpot, would you still play?

                          hmmm With hits like "Grimm" and many other fiction shows, not sure what you are talking about here.

                            Alot of these reality shows are scripted, so they might as well be fiction anyways...but to prove that there are some really good fiction shows on here's a few of my favs...

                            Burn Notice

                            Person of intrest

                            Royal pains

                            All the Law and Orders

                            C.S.I.

                            N.C.I.S (both of them)

                            Rizzoli and Isles

                            Major Crimes

                            I could go on and on but these are some of the highest rated fiction shows on t.v...with the exception of Burn notice which just ended their series

                              I think Ridge is the Exec. Producer for Duck Dynasty.
