Admit it. There's at least one show you find yourself watching, week after week, even though everything about it makes your skin crawl. When said program is brought up in conversation, you immediately quip, "I hate that show!" which you genuinely do — but you still set your DVR to record it every Tuesday at 9/8c on Bravo. (Sorry, Real Housewives).

It's a pastime that many refer to as "hate-watching" — a form of cruel and unusual television punishment that occurs when "you watch a show you wouldn't choose to watch for any reason other than to mock it for its awfulness — say, by sharing snide Twitter exchanges with like-minded hate-watchers when the program airs," according to The Associated Press.
