'H8R' Premiere: Snooki Finds Out Her Hater's Mom Is a Hater, Too (VIDEO)

Nicole 'Snooki' Polizzi, 'H8R'Nicole 'Snooki' Polizzi and former 'Bachelor' Jake Pavelka were the first subjects of new reality series 'H8R' (Wed., 8PM ET on The CW). The new series puts together C-list celebrities with regular people who hate them to see what happens when the celebrity stops being the sum of their tabloids and television appearances.

In premise, the show isn't a bad idea, but in execution it was lacking. Plus, am I the only one who doesn't understand why this is a fall-launching show on a major network (minor-major network, but still!)? 'H8R' feels like the kind of filler that does quite well in the summertime, and even better on cable. Even the textable title screams MTV.

They did a great job with casting the premiere, though, as Snooki and Jake Pavelka are easily two of the most hated people to come from reality television. Snooki's hater was a guy named Nick, but she found out the apple doesn't fall far from the tree.

Nick's mother isn't a big fan either. Even though her argument against 'Jersey Shore' was understandable it put an onus of responsibility on the cast that isn't necessarily theirs to own.

"I don't personally like my daughter to watch the show because I don't like the image that it portrays," she said "The young people, they like to emulate you ... but that's not really what us moms and dads would like our kids to do."

Snooki couldn't really defend the show, other than to say the partying is just representative of growing up. Maybe it's more a matter of policing what the children are watching than passing judgment on a show featuring young adults.

Regardless, the family did come to see that Snooki is more than the parts they see on television. It's never clear if mom gets onboard the Snooki love train, but Nick at least seems willing to be more open-minded.

Jake Pavelka's journey wasn't so successful, though I blame Mario Lopez for some of that. His idea was to have Jake meet his hater, Danielle, and be everything she expects him to be. The problem is that he genuinely seems to possess those arrogant d-bag qualities, so when it was time to turn them "off," there wasn't much of a change.

Even his crocodile tears -- now who's hating? -- couldn't sway her from hating on him, but he's probably pretty cool with how things turned out. After all, he got to be on another television show.

Lol! Clueless! I give everyone the opportunity to show themselves, even when they are embarrassing or obnoxious the first time I meet them, I give them the benefit of the doubt. But crap by any other name is still crap. She says she being her, that's how she is. But in the show and interviews, she totally comes off as arrogant, conceited and junvenile. If that's not her, than she lying to us as well as herself. But if that is her, well she pretty clueless to not realize why people hate on her. She can say her friends like, but that's because they are just like her...clueless. She is right though, it is part of growing up. But with that kind of attitude and ignorance, she better grow up fast, and put all her immaturity behind her.

Any sane person would and shoud hate this fowl mouthed potty brained little ignorant twit. She offers NOTHING in the way of intertainment. She should be taken off the air ASAP and replaced with a more wholesome family friendly show. God Bless America. In God We Trust.
