    Oh you have got to be kidding me! Them canning TechTV was bad enough, but I learned to love G4...Now I will lose that too!

    Oh well, I guess I will just spend more time gaming now. It would still be nice to catch AOTS and Cinematech once in a while.

    The only things i worry are, what will happen to the spaceballs cartoon and I'll miss xplay. Aside from that I can't help but feel like doing a happy dance.

    So, AOTS will now be about celebraties, what they're wearing, with whom, and hosted by Joan Rivers

    After reading the article, it sounds to me that G4 isn't going anywhere, its just a staff consolidation and someone else is in charge. Now, that probably isn't good news for the network, but it should still be around.

    Good riddance.

    That channel was great before it merged with TechTV, then it became G4TechTV (which was OK with me). Then G4 decided, "Hey, let's invade TechTV and make it G4 again, only this time make it a hopeless clone of SpikeTV." And most of the fine shows on G4 were reduced to sheer crap. But it serves G4 right. Invade another channel, absorb it, put shows that have been on other channels on their channel, make their original programming more retarded, and this is what you get. E! takes over G4.

    To be honest, I'm glad G4's gone.

    Way to fuck over a network twice you dipshits!!

    I loved Tech TV. I hated when G4 took over. But at the very least, the channel became somewhat watchable when they did things like E3 live, and Comic Con. Also Olivia Munn made me watch Attack of the Show and enjoy it. But E!..... Ugh!!! I say the dumbfucks that did that to this channel should be tried for murder and suffer a firing squad in the middle of the street.

    Good, it's about time. Maybe E! can revamp everything again and find a way to bring back Leo Laporte.

    Yeah, I've not been liking anything on G4 lately other then X-play (when Sessler was out "sick" was the best honestly) and well Cinematech and that's mainly it, that Kevin I'd rather see get eaten by a Chicken Zombie (yeah last AOTS I saw was that one)

    Eeh not even caring to read is how much i find it crappy. Hell took off my fav shows anyway so I could care less and half of the stuff on their doesn't even fit it, if TechTV was still on maybe I could see a trekkie hour or something but other then that no. All the non-gaming stuff needs canned. 'nuff said.

    Yeah, so let's be a really fucking trashy channel by having shows with lewd topics such as periods(AOTS) and diarrhea(Cinematech). We'll also name a block of shows after slang for masturbation(Midnight Spank). I've never seen a whole channel try so hard to reach the lowest common denominator.

    MY local cable stopped airing TechTV after the merge. Thinking back, I think they did the right thing after all this mess.

    Serves 'em right for screwing over The Screensavers, one of my favorite shows on TV at one time.
