The surprise reality hit about people with bizarre compulsions (like eating toilet paper) lives up to its title again this week.

First, meet Cyntrelle, a rabid germaphobe who spends eight hours a day cleaning. Then there's Belinda, a sweet mom obsessed with rocks -- her house is filled with more than 100,000 of them! The afflictions are fascinating, but too much time is spent gawking at their odd behavior as opposed to treating it. Only in the final moments do therapists pay a visit, and they oversimplify things by suggesting exercise and journaling! (TLC, 10 P.M.)
