Viewers will see a side to celebrities rarely seen by the public, as they do their best to turn their haters around. Will the haters be impressed or will they refuse to change their minds?

If you squint, you can see what the people who invented H8R, the show now tanking magnificently in the ratings, were thinking. But only if you squint.

The creepiest thing about "H8R" isn't them. It's executive producer Lopez watching a TV monitor in a van outside, chortling over the train wrecks he's generating.

In the end, it doesn't feel much more enduring than a tweet.

H8R hardly smells like a rose. Still, there's a good solid traffic wreck of a show here, with Snooki actually managing to renovate herself just a bit while Pavelka sinks deeper into his role as America's sad sack punching bag.

H8R isn't even the best version of H8R, which looks and sounds like a bootleg of Blind Date. Even E! would be embarrassed of the Hollywood montages.

The central problem with H8R-the CW's new reality show and not just the worst new show of the fall season but the worst show of the fall season by a significant margin-is that it seems to really think it's doing something good for the world.

Snooki drags citizen-critic Nick to a grocery, where he weakly defends his position, and then she cooks his skeptical Italian family a meal. Will they admit finally that she's really a lovely girl?

Mario Lopez, my name is Daniel Fienberg and your show sucks.

Sep 1, 2020 | Full Review…

"H8R" feels contrived whether there's a happy ending or not, so there's not much point in watching except perhaps for the initial confrontation between the hater and the object of his/her scorn if that's the kind of uncomfortable drama you crave.

H8R? I H8it.

Sep 1, 2020 | Full Review…

The show takes an anti-bullying tone by holding people accountable for the negative things they say about celebrities. And it offers celebrities the opportunity to show audiences the real person behind their celebrity persona.

Sep 1, 2020 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

It's hard to determine what the target audience for H8R is as most people who watch reality shows aren't particularly interested in seeing the people they love to hate redeemed, that's not the point of that genre.
