Bananas. This show is B-A-N-A-N-A-S

TLC's Extreme Couponing is irresistible Great Recession TV, with its zeitgeisty mashup of Hoarders-style eccentricity (no one needs that much "rinse agent") and nature-documentary-style earnestness (narrator: "With her list, her coupons and her whole day off from work set aside to shop, Amanda heads to the grocery store...").

Watch consumer Davids bring retail Goliaths to their knees! See the supermarket system wibble under the weight of the sheer crazy! And, today, in an exclusive sneak peek, see "super-frugal Amy plan to buy over $400 worth of groceries for under $10."

What do you think of Extreme Couponing so far? Would you watch other frugalista-oriented TV shows? (Anybody else think The Amy Dacyczyn Show would be a blockbuster?) Hit the comments!

Extreme Couponing airs Wednesday at 9 and 9:30 p.m. on TLC.
