Extreme Couponing, TLC's new show on those manically obsessed with--you guessed it--coupons, premiered last night to so much buzz, it was a worldwide trending topic on Twitter, with viewers calling the "couponers" either inspiring or insane. (One woman's near-$2,000 grocery bill was reduced to $103.72 after coupons. Now that's insane.)
Here are some reactions to the show via Twitter:
