Against my better judgment, I watched two episodes of Extreme Couponing last night and found that the new TLC series oddly fascinated and infuriated me on so many different levels. Like the patrons at the stores where these women shop, I couldn't stop look away as four full carts of groceries shrunk down from several hundreds of dollars (in one case nearly two thousand) to next to nothing. On one hand, it was kind of impressive. But on the other hand, that's only if you discount (no pun intended) all of the stuff they already have at home, the fact that they don't need most of these items and the amount of time it takes them to get this stuff.
It seems that nearly every day there's a new reality show popping up to vie for our attention, and while most of them are instantly forgettable or boring clones of existing hits, some of them are actually pretty great. While we mostly talk about competitive reality shows or docu-soaps that feature reprehensible rich people, toddlers, tiaras and chefs, we enjoy plenty of other unscripted programs that don't get that much attention. Until we're blessed with another season of My Strange Addiction (because we can't get enough of people munching on cremated remains or drywall), here are the shows more reality fans should be watching:
We thought the Dance Moms stars would come back with a vengeance, but it seems that Abby Lee Miller is saving the good stuff for later.
