Kevin Pereira Leaving Attack of The Show

After more than a decade on the air, host Kevin Pereira is leaving Attack of the Show. Attack will celebrate Pereira’s contribution to G4 with a month-long look back at his most memorable comedy sketches, interviews, and hilarious off-the-cuff moments from the show. The Pereira-palooza will culminate on May 31, his final day on AOTS, before Pereira delivers his final live, on-location coverage for the gaming world's biggest event, the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3), from June 4-7. In other words: Kevin’s going out large. (G4, Industry, Kevin Pereira)

G4 is losing all the best they had. I hope only for the best for Kevin.

This one sucks. He was the only one I actually liked.
LOGICWINS  +   1208d ago
Yup. Very charismatic dude...that ACTUALLY plays games. Def gunna tune in for his final appearance on G4. After that, I'm done with them.
crxss  +   1207d ago
sad to see him go. wonder where he'll land... god i hope its not at shitty GT.
LOGICWINS  +   1207d ago
What's wrong with GT? They have some of the most in depth video reviews you can find on the net. The only downside is that Geoff Keighly is the only one on the GT staff who seems like he's actually passionate about games.

Something's up at G4. Without X-play and AOTS, the only thing running on G4 would be Cheaters, Cops and well, some more Cops which to be frank, I am sick and tired of.

I hope Sessler and Kevin could join forces and somehow start a real gaming related show. We need a proper 24/7 gaming channel!
mewhy32  +   1207d ago
Oh man. Kevin leaving the show is NOT good. I hope that Attack of the Show will go on and not get canceled.
Dac2u  +   1207d ago
Wow, there's really nothing left to watch on G4. I know some didn't care for him, but Kevin's style of humor was right up my alley. I guess I'm not so mad about losing G4 with my switch to Direct TV now.
Pushagree  +   1207d ago
Just cancel the whole show. Nothing but a bunch of models pretending to be gamers anyway. Everyone on that show tried way too hard to be likeable.

bring back "the screen savers"
I really liked that show. It is what AOTS transitioned from (or so i seem to recall).

There were lots of good shows when it was tech-tv like audiofile and fresh gear. Yet without the merger with G4 I would never have seen the show icons. That was a great G4 series.

I don't see this as being sad, mainly because G4TV is terrible now. So, to see these people leave makes me happy that they aren't apart of G4TV anymore. Hopefully they'll find much better work somewhere else.

R.I.P. TechTV

G4 is closing and everyone is jumping out before it sinks or what?

I think I'll Miss 'Kevin vs Batman' most of all :*(

ReservoirDog316  +   1208d ago
Haha, I was hoping someone gave a link to that. That was my favorite aots moment.

First Adam Sessler left and now him. Gonna miss their E3 coverage from now on (only thing I still watched on G4).

Dam I really enjoyed watching AOTS, Kevin, Sarah, and Candace are a great team!

With Kevin gone it just will not be the same cause I know for a FACT that Kevin is a tech Nerd and a real Gamer and he gave the show it's credibility.

Gonna miss Kevin but I hope he moves unto something Bigger and Better cause he is a good talent and a cool dude!

(hope it wasn't about money cause I would take a pay cut to work with Candace Bailey and Sarah Underwood)
fatstarr  +   1207d ago
if kevin and adam left the network is dead. they are the only two that stayed with them through all the cuts at G4.

orange-skittle  +   1207d ago
Kevin and Adam did leave....HELLO?!! McFLY!!!
Megaton  +   1208d ago
I used to think this guy was a douche, but then I listened to both of his appearances on the Joe Rogan Experience podcast. Seems like a cool guy when he's not forcing jokes for TV.
aawells07  +   1208d ago
Hey thanks for the heads up on the Joe Rogan Experience. I looked it up and looked for the episodes with Kevin in it and was looking thru them and saw one with Jim Gaffigan in it so ill def be listening to it as well. Thanks
Megaton  +   1208d ago
It's a good podcast. Lots of interesting guests.
ThichQuangDuck  +   1207d ago
It is a great podcast and I have not heard Kevin's appearance yet but do hate the forced feeling of AOTS. some other recommended listens include Jason silva and what is reality. I wish kevin the best and now we have lost kevin pereira, adam sessler and robot wars
Nac  +   1208d ago
I have met Kevin, really nice guy. I hope he has a great career.
MidnytRain  +   1207d ago
I'm sure he is. Jesus, there's no reason to watch G4 at ALL anymore.
kevnb  +   1208d ago
He was the last person I liked on g4...
WeskerChildReborned  +   1208d ago
Adam Sessler now Kevin? I'm guessing after that we will be losing Morgan Web then Blair Herter. G4 just isn't what it use to be.
WesMcLaren  +   1207d ago
Do you really like Blair?
WeskerChildReborned  +   1207d ago
I don't like nor dislike him. I'm just stating a point.
Fel08  +   1208d ago
First Adam, now Kevin? WOW, is this the end of G4?
ronin4life  +   1207d ago
You know the saying: you know the boat is sinking when the rats jump ship?
Well, the big rat (DirecTV) jumped years ago.

I'd hope so. Then again, DirecTV doesn't even air that garbage channel anymore, so I couldn't care less.
blackblades  +   1207d ago
That's what I was thinking, Morgan might be leaving as well soon, I think G4 should go away now, since spike is moving up with the event's lately.
Cryptcuzz  +   1207d ago
I wish him all the best, he's a pretty cool guy and seems really passionate about games.

At least there is still Candace Bailey! She is hot and super cute!
Lord_Sloth  +   1207d ago
I stopped watching G4 years ago anyway. Mainly when they removed Portal. BEST SHOW EVER!
biRdy  +   1207d ago
Well everything has to die eventually, hope Morgan leaves soon as well, would hate to see her go down with the ship.
snowman2149  +   1207d ago
First G4 was dropped by Direct TV, then Abbie Heppe left, then morgan webb, then adam sessler and now kevin pereira. Damn, G4 is in deep shit right now lol
MidnytRain  +   1207d ago
When did Morgan Webb leave?
Edward75  +   1207d ago
Next they will change AotS into a 30 min show so they can fit in another episode of cops or cheaters!
SignifiedSix  +   1207d ago
Now I really have no reason to tune into g4tv... I'm gonna miss you, Kevin!
BigDog55  +   1207d ago
They need new blood on G4!
specialguest  +   1207d ago
I'm sure Kevin will be just fine on his next venture whether it be TV or internet. Does anyone remember Brenden Moran who left AOTS with Sara Lane? According to Wiki, he's no longer part of the industry and is now a realestate agent.

I think out of the all of the former host who left AOTS, Kevin Rose is probably the most successful. Senior Project Manager for Google. Now that's no easy feat to achieve.

If I was still watching it, THIS would be where I jumped ship.
BlaqMagiq24  +   1207d ago
Adam and Kevin have made the right decision. People as smart and funny as them shouldn't be on a garbage channel like G4 anymore. Only thing G4 is good for now is E3.

whoyouwit04  +   1207d ago
they are really not good for that any more cause spike tv does just a good of a job
azshorty2003  +   1207d ago
maybe they both can go and make their own station. a Real gaming station. just a thought.
Arcanine  +   1207d ago
wow its over now so much for me watching g4
smashcrashbash  +   1207d ago
They are just jumping ship now. i am guessing all the desperate things they did weren't enough to save G4 from a downward spiral
DarthBigE  +   1207d ago
I'll still tune in once a year to see E3 live
Kevin was my favorite of all the G4 channel sad to see him go. I swear he made AOTS tolerable
RockmanII7  +   1207d ago
lol people saying G4 is dead now, G4 died when Sarah Lane left AoTS and Xplay tried to start acting all serious. Mix that with the endless hours of Cops and Cheaters, yea it's been gone for a while now. Still miss Arena and Judgement Day, but now twitch.tv feeds my competitive gaming needs and there are a slew of places online to get game reviews.

First Adam Sandler left now this guy. It's crazy though, G4 really hasn't been the same though.

Adam Sandler???
morkendo23  +   1207d ago

In a perfect world adam and kevin would stay and only morgan would leave(I like candice,blair and sara plus a few other people i forgot the names of i just hate morgan she is too snobby)
cardgenius  +   1207d ago
Too bad. Sessler and Pereira were the good ones. Both AOTS and X-Play have gone down hill since they added Candace and Blair. Cant stand either of those idiots.

Hopefully they go onto make something great. Cant say I miss them since its been quite a while since I stopped watching both shows...

What a sad sad day!
