Best Human Interest Reality Shows


Being saddled with crippling drug addiction or dependency is one of the most tragic things that can happen to a person. In some cases, the struggles faced by an addict’s family and friends are nearly as terrible. Intervention is one of cable’s most captivating documentary series that dives deep into the lives of those living with addiction.

Sometimes, the struggles of those living with compulsive hoarding disorder can be as crippling as a drug addiction. Not being able to throw out things like old newspapers, expired food, and sometimes even cat poop can turn a beautiful home into an unlivable sty. Hoarders offers an insight on those who live with the disorder.



The internet is a place to find like-minded friends and occasionally romantic partners. But what if the person behind the screen name isn’t who they say they are? Catfish follows folks in online relationships to see if they’re legitimate or based on a big fat lie.
