My favorite new reality show of the season? “Leper Colony,” obviously, as well as “Bathroom Attendant.” Both shows are equally jam-packed with surprises and pathos. Of course, I also can’t get enough of “Indigestion”; everyone I know is hooked on that crazy show with its upset stomach mentality. But there’s also a lot to love in “Fourth Dimensional Rehab,” in which extra-dimensional beings with the power to reach into our 3-D universe at will simply turn addicts inside-out and pull the drugs and alcohol right out of them. Though I think “Scrub Brush” and “Paint Drying” are also pretty thrilling programs. I hear a new show is due to premiere next month, and I for one can’t hold my horses till it drops: who could resist a TV series called “Colonoscopy,” in which lucky viewers will get to follow intestinal cameras as they shoot the interiors of patients’ colons during polyp-hunting procedures. Yes, this might just be the best TV season of all time.
