Did you H8 The CW's 'H8R'?

Jake Pavelka, H8RWhen I watched 'H8R,' I wasn't expecting much. However, I had a little faith there would be at least some entertainment value. There wasn't.

This show is probably one of the least real reality shows out there.

The premise: "Real" people (putting real in quotes because I'm not convinced these people aren't actors) hate "celebrities" (putting celebrities in quotes because this show is filled with lots of D-list reality stars), then there is a confrontation between the "real" person and "celebrity."

After the two spend a day together, the show ends on a message of "bullying is bad" -- hey, it is -- and the two people go on their merry way.

But the show doesn't really resolve anything -- H8Rs still gonna hate, afterall -- and it just leaves viewers asking why. Or in our case, wanting to hate on all involved with the show that much more.

I'm just going to say it: The screener I saw was so boring, so poorly acted, that it was hard to watch. The most interesting part was when Snooki met her H8R's family; it felt the least staged. But these people raised someone who hates Snooki, and now they have to meet her on television? With Mario Lopez waiting in the wings with sassy commentary? Awkward.

Part two featured Jake Pavelka -- he of 'The Bachelor,' 'Bachelor Pad,' 'Dancing With the Stars' and 'Famous Food' fame -- confronting and then hitting on a young woman who thinks he's a douche. A valid argument, but Pavelka can't really prove otherwise and the two don't make up, unlike Snooki and her H8R. By far the best part of the entire episode was Jake taking off in a jet, never to be heard from again. (Hey, we can dream.)

Other TV greats confronting their H8Rs this season include: The Miz, Levi Johnston, Kim Kardashian, Janice Dickinson, 'Girls Gone Wild' creator Joe Francis, Ron Artest, Maksim Chmerkovskiy, Scott Disick, Charles Barkley and Eva Longoria -- wait what!? Lopez is really cashing in on that friendship!

So, did you H8 'H8R' as much as we did?

Since there's a giant picture of Kat Dennings up. I'm going to throw this up there.
I hate Kat Dennings, it would be the last possible thing I would want do is spend a day with her.
I'm sure I wouldn't enjoy a single minute of it.

Can this show get me a day with Kat Dennings? Like I said it would be absolutely miserable and it wouldn't be something I would like. And if she's not available, I also don't like Mila Kunis, Anna Torv, or Anne Hatheway. Please, don't make me spend a day with any of them.

PM me H8R producers, lets make this happen.

I'm sure that Mario Lopez will be hosting a telethon for these poor "celebrities." Sometimes you have to pay a price for being on t.v. (such as Snooki) and getting paid to go out to clubs, drink and make fools of themselves. You can't please all the t.v. viewers. I'm sorry but I just have little sympathy for people who can afford to leave tips that are higher than my monthly income. Get this show off the air now!

I turned it on for a few minutes.I almost vomited into my beer mug. I thought the haters were terrible. I think they are worst then the people they are making fun of. Cancel this show now and save us the brain cells.
