Rehab television shows: intervention or exploitation?

There are 3 comments on the Hartford Courant story from Jan 2, 2011, titled Rehab television shows: intervention or exploitation?. In it, Hartford Courant reports that:

Leif Garrett didn't want to go to rehab - or at least not "Celebrity Rehab." "I didn't want to have a camera stuck in my face while I was trying to kick," said Garrett, the 1970s teen idol once as famous for his singing and acting as his sun-kissed mane of blond hair.

Who is Leif Garrett? And why should we want to watch this?

TV stations want ratings, and these washed up celebs want their names back in the news. Why the hell anyone would care about them in the first place I have no idea.

I watched 10 minutes of the latest version of this show over the weekend, and I can't find any way on Earth to justify ever losing 10 minutes to this again. I'd far rather watch "Intervention" on A&E, at least it's somewhat authentic.
