G4 Marks the End of AOTS and X-Play with Two-Month Farewells


G4's two longest-running and defining series, Attack of the Show! and X-Play, will be ending their run at the end of 2012. Both shows will include original episodes through the end of the year, and will look back at theirmost memorable moments as we lead up to their final episodes. A rotating lineup of guest co-hosts including John Barrowman, Michael Ian Black, Josh Myers, Paul Scheer, Rob Huebel and Horatio Sanz will join AOTS hosts Candace Bailey and Sara Underwood, and X-Play hosts Morgan Webb and Blair Herter as part of the farewell shows.

With well over a thousand episodes each, Attack of the Show! and X-Play have defined gamer culture for a generation, serving as the launch pad for prominent personalities including Kevin Pereira, Olivia Munn, Chris Hardwick and Adam Sessler. Attack of the Show! debuted March 28, 2005 and from the start was the ultimate guide to everything cool and new in the world of technology, web culture, gaming and pop culture. X-Play made its debut almost two years earlier, on April 28, 2003 (on G4’s previous incarnation: TechTV), and immediately became the go-to destination for young men seeking the latest video game news, honest reviews, hands-on demos and exclusive video game trailers and footage. The year-end celebration will take you back through highlights of these landmark shows' history, including its exclusive live-from-the-floor coverage of San Diego Comic-Con and E3.

Both long-running shows helped define, as well as expand, the pop culture and gaming TV experience for a generation. We hope you've had as much fun watching them as we have had making them, and sincerely hope you join us in bidding a fond farewell to Attack of the Show and X-Play's as we look back over the next two months and head towards each series' finale.

Not surprising considering all the good people on that network have left.

They got rid of all the good people for people who looked better, and then the shows got stupid.

Is twit.tv going to fill the void in my life without AOTS? They need to hire some chicks. :D

Apparently they're "rebranding" the network to be more like the magazine GQ.

Wow how absolutely sad. You have to admit though the show has gotten so horrid since Kevin left. The network has nothing anymore.

Not for nothing but Im actually shocked that those 2 shows lasted as long as they did. They were actually terrible. I miss the old screen saver days. But on the bright side at least you can go to revision 3 and enjoy some real shows. TwitTV would be a good replacement as well.
