People love to demonize reality TV as evidence of decay in Western society, but have these people actually seen a reality show lately? They aren't all vehicles of Schadenfreude and exploitation. And even so, what's wrong with that? Even Jersey Shore has its purpose. Contrary to popular belief, reality TV serves a variety of useful and important functions and I, for one, am a better person because of it. Here's why:

Doug and Darlene haven't let any strangers inside their home for the past 20 years, and there won't be party invitations any time soon considering their latest setback. On Sunday's Hoarding: Buried Alive, we see inside the couple's house, which features piles of trash and one rather glum-looking cat. Four months ago, however, their lives became almost unbearable when a septic tank overflowed, tainting everything with filth and fecal matter.
Compulsive hoarder Caryn just wants to get better and be happier and that's why she's seeking help. On Sunday's episode of Hoarding: Buried Alive (9/8c, TLC), we see Caryn struggle with trying to regain her life and the home that her parents left her after their deaths 10 years ago. Her inability to stop hoarding, however, has forced the city to kick her out of the horrible conditions in her home. Now, if she doesn't make headway in clearing the house, the home that she had with her parents could be torn down.
