The CW to pick up reality show about celeb haters

We’ve seen celebrities attack each other before on reality shows, and now The CW is offering non-celebs a chance to get up close and personal with stars they can’t stand.

According to Deadline, the network is expected to announce that it's picking up a reality show called “H8R” on Thursday. Hosted and executive produced by “Extra’s” Mario Lopez, the reality show gives a celebrity the chance to confront his or her biggest “hater” so the star can try and convince the regular Joe that all that vitriol is misdirected.

A pilot episode featuring Snooki and Kim Kardashian facing off against their haters has reportedly been well-received. (We gotta ask: If you were to get the opportunity to go toe-to-toe with the celeb you find most detestable, who would it be?)

In addition to "H8R," the network is also expected to announce that it's picked up the Sarah Michelle Gellar series "Ringer," which marks Gellar's return to the small screen as a troubled young woman on the run from the mob.

    Who the hell are any of you to tell someone to get off of this message board. If i am not mistaken,this is AMERICA, remember free speech. With all of the bully issues going on, I cant believe anyone would try and bully someone on these boards. Over a stupid TV show to boot.I know we dont all agree,but do we have to attack anyone that dont agree with us.Cant we all just get along!! By the way ,i would like to go toe to toe with spencer pratt.

    Why would any one want to watch this and why would any one want to be a part of the low lives that are regulars on this blog? You are all mean and have no purpose in life. You are a bunch of bullies.

    Hi Sunshine Girl, Beautiful Vixen. Hope you are having a good night ladies. Jen we hope you will become a regular. You see we have a nice little family going here even if we sometimes don't agree with each other. I see our friend Lloyd is still up and about causing trouble. How is your night going so far Lloyd Christmas? Well wishing the rest of the regular blogers a good night. God speed.

      It's "you're". It is the contracted version of "You are". As in, "If you're going to call someone dumb, your grammar should be correct."

    When someone makes a show called slap the crap out a celebrity then maybe I'll turn my t.v. back on after it's been off a year because I can't stand them.

    Also agree with Twisted. I highly doubt any of these bloggers would say anything like they blog to anyone in person. Writing it is one thing. Saying it in person is another. Theyd better grow a pair before attempting it. Ha Ha.

    Well I agree with Come On. Its probably already set up and scripted. But if it was real it may be interesting. Im not a CW channel fan. If any of their other shows are any indication of how this one will be Ive gotta say its probably gonna s*ck. Id pick Paris Hilton. Gotta list a mile long for her.

  39. Sounds interesting.

    Perhaps the show should be renamed "Jail Time" or "Lawsuit". If the atmosphere becomes too hostile and words turn to blows that's where everyone will be going.

    I might watch. But in all likelihood they'll bring on the loudest, most ridiculous, most obnoxious "average joes" to make for good t.v. I doubt any legitimate arguments will be made, but hey, ya never know.

    What celebrities will sign up for this? Doubt the caliber will get much higher than Snooki, in which case I sense a sinking ship.

    Im gonna guess they are paid haters.....

    its got to b A. J. Hammer.
    Have you seen his show. Watching paint dry is more entertaining than his lil show.

    Gosh – i might actually watch this. I bet the poducers will cater to the celebs though. Let them get the upper hand in arguments and stuff. The same thing happened on a few episodes of Simple L
    Ife. The celebs were made out to be super smart and always tricking the dumb bumkin con-celebs.
