'Hoarding: Buried Alive' is all new tonight on TLC.
This week's episode focuses on compulsive collectors Patti and Jonathan. Both have extreme hoarding obsessions that threaten to break their family apart.
Patti's obsession with collecting has transformed her 900-square-foot California home into an un-maneuverable dumping ground, driving her own daughter to flee the house she grew up in.
Jonathan's ubiquitous filth and mold issues, coupled with a compulsive collection of toys has created a living condition so hazardous his wife refuses to return with their 3-year-old son Robbie. Even his own brother will not visit him without the protection of a scuba suit.
