My Name Is Earl (NBC) Returns Thursday, April 3 at 8 p.m. So Far This Season: After taking the fall for Joy (Jaime Pressly), Earl (Jason Lee) went to prison, became invaluable to the warden (Craig T. Nelson) and even managed to meet a girl (guest star Alyssa Milano), all while continuing to correct the bad karma he'd accumulated. Until, that is, he got out and started acting bad again, which leads to him getting hit by a car, again. When It Returns: In the hour-long return episode, an unconscious Earl finds events from his live mixing with those from the outside world. Paris Hilton makes a cameo appearance.
