I've been a loyal TechTV fan since late 2000 and this whole G4/TechTV merger has done nothing but piss me off.

I've heard they'll be keepin most of my favorite TechTV shows, at least, but I don't know if they'll be the same. Especially if they get rid of the hosts of those shows.

I was exposed to what G4 has to offer recently. They've been airing some of G4's stuff on TechTV to prepare people for what is to come. I must say that the hosts of G4's shows suck. They're cardboard hosts. They have no personality and I seriously doubt any of them played video games before they got those jobs, and I'm sure some of them still don't play games.

And the shows from G4 just suck. One show is all about watching other people play games. Yeah, that's a great show. There's nothing more entertaining than watching other people play video games. :|

G4 has been pissing off a lot of TechTV fans with what they've done or admitted to planning on doing. When I say a lot, I mean a lot. The number of angry TechTV fans is staggering.

If the idiots behind G4 don't stop irritating the loyal TechTV fans, I highly doubt there will be much of an audience after the merger.

I made a post on this awhile back, but basically ZD determined that TechTV was losing money and it's ratings weren't high enough so they sold it to Comcast, who then decided to Merge it with that joke of a channel, G4TV.

So far it doesn't seem to be too bad, other than the fact that Call for help is being dropped. I'm hoping most of the hosts come over from TechTV. Especially Leo, he owns your soul. I know alot of the younger ones will, I just hope the rest will too.

Damn, I get Digital Cable, and the network I got it for goes to hell. This blows.

The Screen Savers had Minibosses on one time. That was downright amazing hearing good quality video game music from them.

Damn, wish I'd seen that.

At least they still have Robot Wars. Why the hell did they cancel Call for Help. It'll still suck without Leo &amp; Kat.

I sat there today on the couch, and decided to watch Sweat. I thought it wouldn't be that bad. Then they actually were stupid enough to count down the "Top Ten Greatest Basketball Games of All Time". o they really think Gamers are that stupid? This blows, and so does G4 f***ing up TechTV.

I've never even heard of it. But with shows titled "Sweat" and "Pulse" it's bound to be stupid.

You hit the nail on the head.

Like every show features a host trying to act spontaneous and hyper. It's really, really annoying. G4TV.com and Icons are really the only shows on the channel worth a damn.

It is stupid. The whole network is stupid.

I like the random cosplayers they throw in though... I know a few of them.
But if I didn't know them, I'd probably hate them like I hate everything else G4 does.
