G4 will be re-branded as the Esquire Channel in early 2013. Apparently some "new programming is already in development and will focus on the genres that other male-centric channels, such as Spike, have failed to provide for men. They include: cooking, travel, fashion and, in keeping with tradition, some gaming as well."

Apparently NBCuniversal is trying to appeal to an Upscale male audience. You know, the kind of guys who didn't watch G4.

The only quality original content that has ever existed on G4 is Reviews on the Run.
I actually watch the show quite a bit. It's one of the few TV shows that I do watch.
I find the hosts of the show are actually likeable and funny.
Not like those tools on X-Play or AOTS. Words cannot describe how terrible Adam Sessler, Olivia Munn, etc. are.

G-What? I'm sorry, I don't watch the televisions anymore because I can just...wait for it...STREAM IT! FUUUUUTUUUURRRE!

But seriously I can't watch it because DirecTV removed it due to "Low Ratings"...

If we've gotten into an argument, it's okay. I'm not holding a grudge against you. Why? Because I like you!

If I haven't posted in awhile, it's probably because I'm with friends.

Clearly, someone has never watched Cinematech, Cheat! (before it was turned into an X-Play segment), Anime Unleashed, Icons (later renamed to Game Makers), or old X-Play (when they didn't try to take themselves too seriously).

I have to give Adam Sessler some credit. I did like watching him on Gamespot TV wayyyyyyy back when the channel was called TechTV. Then they became Extended Play which was ok, and then X-Play which I rarely watched. I could not stand AOTS, though.

Honestly, this isn't really that unexpected a change, the channel had little to do with video games for months. And the quality of much of their gaming programming wasn't that good in general, so I'm not sure I'd even really miss it.

The cops channel sounds a lot better then G4 right about now.

"bad boys, bad boys, what you gonna do when they come for you!"

I liked to rev up those fryers, I play games, I can't draw good, but I make stick figures named Sheldon and Mr. Randoms.
