G4 has simply evolved from what it once was. They still have game content but they have a wider variety of shows. If they didn't become what they are today I highly doubt they would still be on the air.It's just like WoW. When it first went live there was the stigma that only nerds who live in their parents basements played WoW. Five years and around 12 million subscribers later that is no longer the case. There aren't 12 million nerds living in their parents basement to begin with. Larger variety of views tuning into G4. Larger variety of players in WoW.

It would of been just as successful as TechTV was before the merge. They just felt the need to try to compete with Spike and cannot do so.

The problem is that they basically destroyed everything original and funny, and basically turned the station from a nerd station to a frat boy station. The "evolution" of the Screen Savers into Attack of the Show is a good example. X-play is the only original show left, but even that is a huge shell of its former self. Now it basically covers everything Attack of the Show used to do, and have cut out many of the hilarious skits/sketches/reviews for other stuff that just... really doesn't make it as good as it used to be.

I'm in agreement that the station has pretty much become Spike, plus some gaming/tech shows. I don't watch it so much anymore because about 8 times out of 10 that I turn to it they're showing Cops or some other crap.

I very much miss the dear, departed TechTV.I know they called it a merge, but it was more like when Ubisoft ate Red Storm, thereby turning the Rainbow Six franchise from "tactical simulation" to "OMFG shoot it!11!"I liked that not only was there game content on TechTV, but that there was software and hardware content as well. You could actually learn useful things.
