The CW Picks Up Celeb Reality Show ‘H8R’ and ‘The Ringer’

Mario LopezThis is low, even for the CW. They’ve just picked up an hour-long reality series called H8R that forces celebs to pair up with folks who hate them so they can perform some unknown task that will undoubtedly feel as natural and the faces Tyra Banks makes at the America’s Next Top Model judges panel. The show will be hosted by Mario Lopez who just can’t seem to regain that AC Slater magic (we miss you and your high-top hair and muscle tees) and will find stars like Snooki and Kim Kardashian as they try to convince the buncha haters that they’re really alright. Good luck.

Also on the CW’s new menu is The Ringer, a mystery drama starring Sarah Michelle Gellar. Gellar plays twins, one who passed away but has a hit out on her, and the other whose own troubles force her to steal her twin’s identity not knowing of the mafia trouble that will certainly follow. Adding to the drama so typical of the network are Gellar’s costars, Ioan Gruffudd and Kristoffer Polaha.

Both don’t look that promising, but at the same time, play into the type of shows we’re used to seeing on the CW. Get ready to attempt to resist the melodrama, folks. Trust me, I know how hard it can be.

Celebrity Editor Kelsea Stahler was born in a pile of dirt. Okay, she was actually born in an old Naval hospital in San Diego, which then became a pile of dirt and remained as such for a number of years before becoming a parking lot perfectly sized for circus tents, and finally a museum. She eventually left San Diego to attend New York University, where she studied Journalism and English literature — two less-than profitable liberal arts degrees about which guidance counselors warned her. Against all odds, she now resides in Brooklyn, where she fights the constant fear that the locals will soon discover she isn’t quite cool enough to live there, and makes a living writing absurd, pop culture features about Batman, zombies, vampires, funny people, and Ron Swanson.
