If you are looking for earnings data for U.S. Stocks then the following item will help you get it: Historical Earnings Calendar Data for U.S. Stocks - Date/Time and EPS.
And if you are looking for earnings data for International Stocks (UK, Canada, France, Italy...) then the following one is what you need: Historical Earnings Calendar for Major Stock Exchanges

Both items get earnings calendar data and store it in a custom historical database whose name is "earnings_cal".
The database contains the following fields: (for the one that gets U.S. stocks EPS data)
timeday: Release Time
eps: EPS or Earnings per share
prevyr: Previous year EPS

In the next steps, we will show you how to install and run the earnings downloader for U.S. stocks:
- Go to: Historical Earnings Calendar Data for U.S. Stocks - Date/Time and EPS
- Click on "Download" to open a small popup then wait a few seconds until a file is downloaded
- Double click on that file to open QuantShare
- In the new opened form in QuantShare, click on "Download", on "Save" and finally on "Start"
- Click "Yes" to create the missing database/fields
- The downloader will start and the data will be saved in the "earnings_cal" database

Here is how to display EPS data on a chart
