addaword.gifdefinition of hate-watching

noun
the activity of watching a television program which you consider bad
"Hate-Watching” is NOT the same as a guilty pleasure. You wouldn’t tune in every week to hate-watch a really “bad” reality show — that’s a guilty pleasure. Generally speaking, hate-watching requires a TV series with high ambitions and features a certain amount of aesthetic perfection ... yet fails consistently and badly enough to make it compelling.
