Reality producer Matt Kunitz has asked contestants to eat foul bugs (on Fear Factor) and jump on big red balls (see Wipeout). But that's child's play compared to what he's put people through on ABC's recent new entry, 101 Ways to Leave a Game Show.

Our top moments of the week:
11. Worst Call for Help: On the Real Housewives of New Jersey, Teresa goes over to Jacqueline's house for help writing a letter to Teresa's brother, Joe. Unfortunately, pretty much all of Jacqueline's advice falls on deaf ears, as Teresa tells her, "You really don't know ... it's between me and my brother," and then proceeds to overstay her welcome by a few hours.
