Sessler Out, G4 Done

The recent departure of Adam Sessler from G4 caps off the television network's short and troubled history with yet another low point. From its inception in 2002 to the present, G4 has struggled to gain an audience large enough to sustain its ambitions. The loss of their largest and arguably most respected host can only spell more trouble, and possibly oblivion for the network. How did the only network dedicated to the most lucrative medium in America get to this point, and where could it possibly go from here? (Adam Sessler, Culture, G4, Industry)

Sessler was the one main reason I watched it.

That explains why they've been pushin Dr.Pepper so hard on Aots, I guess. Falling apart it seems.... I've stopped watching it regularly myself. I don't much care for that Sara Underwood fellow(if I wanted to hear a woman fake enthusiasm then I'd still be with my ex-ex). Lol.

If Blair Herter (spelling?) takes over on X-play along with Morgan Webb(I don't much care for her double standards when it comes to female characters in video games)I'll leave and never look back.

I'm sad to see him go, as I agreed with a lot of his cynicism about certain things.

This really is a blow to G4. Where else am I going to get to watch The Big Boss twenty times a week?(btw I love that movie and Way of the Dragon)

Edit:(ed) for a minor typographical error yo. Lol ;)

G4 has been done for years...

Millions will still tune in for E3 week, but other than that...I have no reason to watch anymore. Has nothing to do with Sessler, but more about the lack of game related programming.

We need a channel that would replace G4 for good!

That's okay. I've always watched attack of the show more anyways.

Yeah... I'd stopped watching quite some time ago, so it doesn't bother me as much. Just sucks that it was such a good channel to watch at its inception... and just went downhill steadily.

The time slots for both xplay and aots are bad too. If love to watch daily. But its all right around the time I'm eating/finishing dishes/getting kids ready for bed. A little later and I'd be there most nights.

Yes I know dvr is an option, but mine is always so full, that adding 2 shows daily would kill it
