4. "The Moment of Truth," Fox. Reality TV hits a new low. Critics and reporters have been using that line since Survivor first made castaways eat bugs, and they revived it when this show premiered in January. After taking a lie-detector test, people sit in front of friends and family members and answer squirm-inducing personal questions. One contestant, after confessing in front of her husband that she had cheated on him, lost anyway when she answered yes to the question of whether she thought she was a good person. She and her husband separated shortly afterward. Now that's entertainment.
