: We are a binge-and-purge nation and we’re still binging on reality shows; the purge will come soon enough.
USA Today lists the realityfests in the making. They’re bringing back Paris, of course, and even Regis and Rocco. This one sounds like fun: “The One That Got Away (NBC, April). A two-week series in which a man revisits former flames.” But this one sounds troubling: “Playing It Straight (Fox, March 12, Fridays, 8 p.m.). A classic Bachelorette-style dating show, except some of her 14 suitors are gay, and she has to unmask and avoid them to win money.” Cue the Liza music.
