Good new, everybody! Well, maybe not for everybody but for some of you anyway! Misery night has returned! Yes, now you can spend your summer evenings watching hoarders and addicts fight with their families, tell heartbreaking stories of abandonment and abuse, frustratingly resist help, and finally show some small amount of progress such that you get your hopes up for them before finally realizing that most of these people will backslide within a month or two. Aren’t you thrilled!?! I’m sure there are those of you who are, either because you like the show or because watching “Hoarders” keeps your apartment/house in tip-top shape because watching it gives you the screaming heebies.
