Somebody has probably suggested something like this in the form of a joke, but I'm not sure it isn't a good idea: Half-way House Reality TV. Or Reality WebTV with ads. This would be capitalism-meets-voyeurism-meets-exhibitionism being used to recruit and pay for group-therapy-meets-drama-therapy-meets-self-help as an alternative social assistance program. Not to mention the community building, public education and prevention that might come out of it. What's not to like?
