We just had the first snow of the season here in southern Michigan, so I'm a bit wired on coffee today. In fact, my brain-buzz is to blame for today's puzzle. Sorry about that.

What's the next number in this series?

1, 0, 2, 0, 1, 0, 2, 1, 1, 1, ?

HERE is the solution.

THE ANSWER:

THREE.

The number represents the number of times the letter "E" appears in the spelled-out numbers 1, 2, 3, etc. The next number in the series is ELEVEN, which contains 3 E's.
