Critic’s corner: What’s on TV tonight

Oxygen

My Shopping Addiction 11 p.m., Oxygen

Are they deeply troubled, self-destructive people looking to fill the void in their lives with things? Or are they brats? Or are they actors playing shopping addicts? This show brings in telegenic therapists David Tolin and Ramani Durvasula (right) to help people in self-made financial crises. Tonight: A woman who is obsessed with designer clothes and a waitress whose love of shopping may lead to eviction.

Catfish: The TV Show 11 p.m., MTV

Many viewers and critics wondered if Nev Schulman’s 2010 movie “Catfish” was more fake than real. It was presented as a documentary, so the action shouldn’t have been simulated unless noted. Schulman’s “Catfish: The TV Show” is a reality series, though, and as such, some fakery is expected at this point in the genre. I like this show; it gets at the way we fashion selves online, and how those selves differ from who we really are. Pictured: Schulman (left) and Max Joseph.
