Not all reality TV is a fluffy guilty pleasure. Just look at important and disturbing shows like Intervention and Hoarders. Soon, another serious reality show will join the list, Abusers, “a new intervention-style reality show that depicts real-life cases of domestic violence and offers counseling and support for both the abuser and the victim.”
We have to admit to being skeptical about shows like Intervention, but while watching it, it’s clear producers are sensitive to the challenges and pitfalls their subjects face. Can Abusers‘ producers tow the same line? We’ll have to wait and see. We’re not actually even sure we want to watch Abusers — it just seems like such a depressing topic (to be fair, we also don’t watch Hoarders for that very reason).
But will you tune in to Abusers? Tell us in our poll below:
