The CW pulls the stupidity known as H8R, but Top Model stays where it is

After four episodes, The CW has ended the life of H8R, perhaps the fall’s most ill-conceived reality show, although sometime in the future, it may burn off episodes featuring hated celebrities such as Janice Dickinson, Levi Johnston, and NeNe Leakes confronting people who hate them.

The show debuted to terrible ratings, and on Wednesday, the show lost half of its already impossibly low number of women 18 to 49, its target demo, and just 1.15 million people watched, The Futon Critic notes.

While H8R took America’s Next Top Model‘s regular 8 p.m. timeslot, Tyra Banks and company will stay at 9 p.m. for now, as The CW will repeat episodes of Ringer at 8 p.m.
