Since I don't get G4 I won't miss those shows, I did get some kicks from em

I wish there was an easier way to get reruns of Ninja Warrior and if they continued it, Bomb Squad Afghanistan

Farewell, Attack of the Show and X-Play. TVGuide.com is reporting that the two long-running G4 series are coming to an end, as the cable undergoes a rebranding that will turn away from its geek-friendly past.

The final episodes of both will air in December, and leading up to the finale will be rotating guest co-hosts joining current AOTS hosts Candace Bailey and Sara Underwood and X-Play hosts Morgan Webb and Blair Herter, including John Barrowman, Michael Ian Black, Josh Myers, Paul Scheer, Rob Huebel and Horatio Sanz.

TVGuide.com says both shows will have a series of farewell episodes that will include former guests and hosts returning, along with re-airing favorite segments from the past, including AOTS’s coverage of San Diego Comic-Con and X-Play’s E3 coverage.

"Attack of the Show and X-Play have been important for G4, and we want to acknowledge the creative people who have helped inspire and showcase the phenomenon of gamer culture," G4 Media general manager Adam Stotsky tells TV Guide. "With more than 3,000 episodes aired between them, we have more than enough great material to honor these innovators and their amazing contributions as we bring both shows to a close."

TVGuide.com says there is talk that G4 may be looking to partner with Esquire or another men’s magazine like GQ as it moves forward into “more upscale, sophisticated guy TV space.” The network may be renamed G4Men, among other possibilities.

I missed it when G4TV was everything tech.


G4TV was bad from the start. You have to go all the way back to TechTV or even ZDTV to say there was a time everything was tech.

Yes, we all know how great that show was. Being nostalgic about it still doesn't serve any purpose. Attack of the Show was at least entertaining and Kevin brought a lot to the show. Without him, it's hasn't been the same and it wasn't ever going to be. What I meant is without Adam Sessler or Kevin Pereira, the two biggest shows on G4 are now no more. That is indeed sad.
