The H8R TV show is a 60 minute reality series that premiered on September 14, 2011 on the CW Network. It's about celebrities who confront members of the public who hate them. First an encounter is arranged where the celebrity acts exactly like the hater expects them to act. Then host Mario Lopez asks them to give the celebrity a chance to convince them that they are wrong ... that the celebrity isn't what they've come to believe and doesn't derserve to be hated. The two spend a day together while the celebrity does their best to convince the hater that they are just a normal person with human faults who happens to work in show business.

For those of you who may not be into texting, "H8R" is the text abbreviation for "Hater".
There were two episodes of H8R that were produced but not originally broadcast due to early cancellation of the series. Their titles were: "Levi Johnston / Janice Dickenson" and "Charles Barkley / NeNe Leeks". Raw footage was shot for another segment with Nadya Suleman on September 22, 2011 but that never even got into production.
H8R was canceled the day after the fourth episode aired due to horrible ratings. The episode with the highest ratings was the one featuring Kim Kardashian ("Keeping Up With the Kardashians") and Joe Francis ("Girls Gone Wild" creator) but even that one only drew an audience of 1.37 million!
The H8R pilot featured Kim Kardashian and Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi (Jersey Shore) but the two segments were shown on two different episodes when they aired.
H8R's executive producer was Mike Fleiss who also created another "reality" series called, "The Bachelor".
Kat Von D and Barry Bonds were signed to appear on a future episode. In addition, if the series had been a big hit there were plans to approach Sarah Palin, Joan Rivers, Mel Gibson and Lady Gaga.
Critics were extremely negative about H8R. The haters were chosen from people who had posted negative comments on the web about a celebrity. Since people typically post comments using an alias, critics didn't feel it was ethical to expose those people publicly. In reality, no one would have appeared on the show unless they co-operated in the filming and signed a consent form so they weren't really "exposed".
