The CW Doubles Up on Ringer, Says Later to H8R

The CW is pulling the low-rated reality series H8R off its fall schedule immediately, replacing it with encore broadcasts of the freshman thriller Ringer, sources tell TVLine.

Since launch, H8R has averaged in the neighborhood of 1.3 million total viewers, and at last tally scored a 0.4 demo rating. Filling the Wednesdays-at-8 vacancy allows The CW to generate further sampling of the buzzy, Sarah Michelle Gellar-fronted Ringer, which is a high-priority series for the network.

Several unproduced hours of H8R have yet to air, and could see daylight in the spring or summer 2012.
