What would you do if tomorrow's paper came to your door today? If you knew that you were going to die? Be lucky in love unlucky in life? That's what Gary Hobson has to ask himself every day. Gary Hobson is a stockbroker that got fired from his job and his wife found him uninteresting and kicked him out. You see it's quite simple. Everyday an orange cat comes to his door with the paper (a Chicago Sun Times). Gary doesn't know where it comes from. He did a bit of research and found out that a man named Lucis Snow, was an old typesetter and he had the paper before Gary. The day after Snow died, the paper came to Gary. Gary has two friends. Chuck Fishman, who has been best buds with Gary since college. Chuck wants Gary to give him the scores of games, winning lotto numbers, stocks, or even soap opera tips. Marrisa is Gary's blind friend who helps Gary make all the right choices.Written by
Gary's name, Hobson, implies the nature of the show, a Hobson's choice. He receives information and is in a position to help, sometimes a little, sometimes a lot. The choice is to act or not, a Hobson's choice. See more »
Throughout mainly the first season, it can be seen that the headlines do not match the columns themselves. See more »
You know, sometimes when people get older, they lose a little faith.

I was really sad to see that this show had been cancelled. I actually only started seeing this show in re-runs on Fox Family. Here was a smart show, no cliches, no mush, no garbage. Here was a show that you would actually feel comfortable watching with everyone from your thirteen year-old son/daughter to Grandma. Here was a show that caught my family's attention, and, for once, kept it. The acting was great, the storyline was original, and the setting for this show was perfect- Chicago. All you need to know is that it's about a guy (Gary Hobson), down on his luck, who starts getting tomorrow's paper today. Unlike most people, he uses the paper to save lives, not to win the lottery. This becomes his life. The show's got morals. How many shows on television today can you say that about?
