Days like this make me miss G4

Say what you will about how the industry killed two good networks for being "Too niche". I can't stand these Gametrailers.com folk. I miss Morgan Webb, Sessler, Blair Herter & the other great G4 reporters.

How are those ratings now G4? Gettin that Cops rerun money?

This.

Everybody at G4 needs to be drummed out of the industry completely and never be able to get another job.

@TheBlueStig

How am I not surprised you have something negative to say. This is why I'm more of a lurker around here, there can't be one thread without someone being negative. Also, inb4leave because I'm not, someone has to bring some positivity or at least neutrality to these boards beside GlassGhost

It's not like any of the people that work for G4 or TechTV had any say in anything that went down in the demise of either network. That and TechTV's shows were more like what they became ultimately. A web channel. Rev3 garnered more success than TechTV ever would have allowed being pinned down by a major network.

As for G4, it really was the same thing. A lot of shows that work better online & crap reruns of crap shows. AOTS & Xplay were the saving grace of that channel. Say what you will about any of their reporters, but they are all far better than Keighley, Pachter, & whoever this kid imitating Yanni's look is.

AOTS and Xplay were two of their lowest rated shows. You wanna know why Cops was played so often? It pulled better ratings than both AOTS and Xplay combined.

When you play a show for hours on end, it will obviously get more ratings.

G4 was enthrals tic and asked some tough questions. Geoff Keighly just nods and goes along with the pr spin. It's pretty sickening to watch.
