Airs Sunday 3/6

Us Rating: ***1/2

Ruby Gettinger's mission to go from morbidly obese to happily svelte takes a sad turn in the season 4 opener. The Southern charmer -- who started the series in 2008 at 716 pounds and was down to 302 last season -- reveals that despite all kinds of training and treatment, she has regained 60 pounds. In her mind, she's overeating as a way to deal with the residual emotional trauma of being molested as a child. As Gettinger rallies to confront her demons and reacquire her healthy habits, fans of this soulful and heartbreaking show will root for her harder than ever. (Style, 8 P.M.)
