Premieres: Sunday, May 12 on TLC
Why we're watching: You know how sometimes there's a show that you call a "guilty pleasure," but you don't actually feel guilty about it? These two, we actually feel guilty about. But we keep watching them anyway. Basically, these two reality shows -- one about a Long Island mother who claims to speak to the dead, the other about a bunch of formerly-Amish young people who collectively have a serious problem with the truth -- are the equivalent of the pint of chocolate-potato-chip Ben & Jerry's we hide in the back of the freezer because we're embarrassed our roommates will see it.
