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.

I vaguely recall that show it was on in the early to mid 1980's.

I believe I watched about half the first episode.

    With the big jackpots and all the interesting lottery stories, I think this show stands a good chance of doing well. Lotteries are starting to be seen differently. It seems pretty slick in the promo.

      I seen the British version "The Syndicate" and it was really good.  There was only 5 episodes in Series 1 and the ending sucked but overall it was really good.  I couldn't watch Series 2 (except the 1st episode) because I couldn't find it anywhere online.  I think Lucky 7 will be good.  One of the actresses was in the British version.

        I was disappointed seemed like characters from LCML the whole time I was watching I kept comparing their stories to the ones on TLCML. 

        1. Ex-convict ( the person in Michigan that went to prison for selling drugs)

        2. The wife who husband left her the day she won from California. 

        3. The lady that did not play from Florida though she was not on TLCML

        4. The Guy that owned his own mechanic shop.

          It's up against Person of Interest.  There's no way I'll be watching it.  Hat

          Good call, HoLeeKau.

          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.

                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

                Well thank ya kindly, duckman.

                Them ol' boys come up to East Tennessee sometime though and I'll show 'em what a real beard looks like, I'm here to testify.

                  The US show is exactly the same as the British Version "The Syndicate" in the exception that they added two characters and changed a few minor things.  It kind of sucks.  I thought it was based on that show, meaning it would have similarities but be different.  But nope it is the same show with different actors/actresses.  Hope as it goes on the storyline changes a little so it is not the same.  The season preview didn't look that way though.

                    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

                    You like the same shows I do

                     

                    Crime shows etc,

                     

                    Law and order is awesome, I have started watching the US one after I finished with the UK one.

                      The second one was much better than the first, they did it so it so each episode was showing how each person spent their money etc then the last episode was like showing how all the characters end up.

                            Not all of ABC's news was good on Tuesday. The TV By the Numbers website reported that the 10 p.m. debut of "Lucky 7," a series about a group of co-workers who win the lottery, was the network's lowest rated drama debut ever.

                              Yep it got a 1.3 rating from what I read there were 6 episodes ordered but it might not make it 6.
