30 Days courtesy FX
Cheers to Morgan Spurlock for bringing back TV's best reality show (yeah, I said it), FX's 30 Days. The third-season premiere sent the Supersize Me documentarian back to his home state of West Virginia to spend a month working as a coal miner. He faced dangers ranging from split underwear to cave-ins and convinced his boss to take a long-overdue test for black lung disease (sadly, spots showed up in both lungs). Plus, he took a truly fair and balanced look at energy issues, interviewing both a coal-industry lobbyist and an environmentalist. Funny and moving, entertaining and educational, 30 Days deserves an Emmy or a Peabody or, most of all, more viewers.
