G4 to become the Esquire Channel, stars comment on show cancellations

NBCU has apparently inked a deal with Esquire parent company Hearst Corporation to take the network in a direction that will appeal more to the upscale male demographic, featuring programming on cooking, fashion, and travel, starting in the first half of 2013. In other words, GTFO, gamers and geeks.

Ugh. I detest this whole thing. First, the dismantling of Tech TV by G4. Now, G4 being dismantled by Esquire.

I'm done here.

They wanted to appeal to gay guys and metrosexuals aka "The audience Spike TV left behind".
Please, those people have a million shows they can watch - every show girls watch.

If you're a gamer now you're stuck with the sorry excuse that is Spike TV.

Thats why Adam and Kevin left.

Should try to get shows like spike has like 1000 ways to die and have some game stuff mixed in the middle of it and then some show with girls half undressed and then some tech shows and end it off with a ep of ninja warrior and cops :D

"I would have liked to see behind-the-scenes things for video games and/or movies, "art of" type segments, gaming tournaments of all kinds, and more game walkthroughs... but, hey, that's just me."

Fun thing is TechTV did all of those thing.

Tech TV was great. Lots of great shows on computers and gaming. Then it got turned into G4 and they ruined it. Most of the time all they show is stupid shows not worth watching.

KozmoOchez1389d ago

to be fair, G4 had those things too before it merged with TechTV, and it played all that on repeat like ESPN news, so if I ever missed anything, I could catch it later on in the day.

I wish gaming podcasts were more reliable and less obvious bias because overhyping journalism isn't getting me the info that I like to have for gaming either

This channel have been dying for years. No shock there. But ultimately it's just moving on to where this stuff belongs. Youtube.

Mila Kunis is so hot, but her nipples are all jacked. It's a shame. It's like playing Mass Effect 3 thinking "this is so good", then you get to the end.

More on topic: G4 screwed itself by becoming sold out to one platform in particular, then when they tried to being more unbiased again, it was too late. Once Sessler left it was over.
