    X-Play and Attack of the Show Ending on G4!

    G4 ending X-Play, Attack of the Show [update] | Joystiq

    Not that I watch G4 that much anymore as I cannot stand Cops and Campus PD 24 hours a day.

    But something magical came on between 6PM-8PM every night for a good while that made the channel worth watching.

    That ends this year and sometime before Thanksgiving.

    RIP to G4 as we know it!

    There goes the only reason I even watched the channel. It started dying a few years ago all the tech based TV went away, now with these two gone we can consider the network deceased

    I haven't watched G4 in like forever, so it's no big loss for me.

    There goes G4 for me, I'll most likely stop watching the channel and it will fade into a merely distant memory in the back of my mind.

    I stopped watching G4 a long time ago, but for them to drop X-Play and Attack of the Show, shit, might as well just close up shop.

    AOTS was lame ever since Olivia left, and without Kevin, well, you don't have a show at all. Same with X-Play...there is no X-Play without Adam, he had been there since the TechTV days.

    Well, how else were they going to make room for more Cops?

    Yeah, RIP G4. You used to be watchable when nothing else was on.

    What? You don't enjoy 6 straight hours of COPS? What's wrong with you?!

    I understand viewership is probably down, but this sounds like suicide for G4. I mean, they have to have some major restructuring in the works. They can't keep showing shitty movies while calling them "Movies That Don't Suck."

    Oh, absolutely this. They lost every bit of credibility for that block when they started airing the Street Fighter movie.

    :lol 

    Ehh X-Play wasn't that good of a show to begin with, so no big loss there, good riddance I say. I can't comment on Attack of the Show.

    I stopped caring about X-Play when they stopped giving good game reviews.

    Always hated Attack of the Show.

    I feel kind of bad since I only really watched G4 from '10 onward for Ninja Warrior and Unbeatable Banzuke :lol 

    Still, sad to see X-Play, a show I faithfully watched for a little under a decade (And still watched from time to time) go.

    G4 has been pretty much a lost cause since they started playing Code Monkeys and stopped playing Cinematech.

    The suck that was Attack of the Show was the start of the end of an awesome channel anyway. They kicked out all the nerds and filled the channel up with hipsters.

    That blows, but I knew it was downhill the second Kevin announce his departure. I guess that they won't do anything game related after they're gone. I stopped watch after Kevin left, he kept the show going after Olivia left.
