Re: G4 becomes the Esquire Channel

Speaking of TWIT, apparently they're going to get Leo and Patrick to do cameo on the last Attack of the Show.

TWIT.tv is the spritual successor to the old TechTV.
Had never heard of twit.tv. Just checked out the website -- pretty cool. They even have Leo Laporte.
Actually, TWiT is owned by Leo. He started the "this week in tech" podcast shortly after he got canned from techtv. It has since grown to a video show, to a network of multiple shows. He doesn't like to refer to the twit network as a podcast network, instead using the term netcast. In many ways, things like twit, revision3, and a few others presents the new model of "tv network" in the Internet age.

I have an essentially free subscription to Esquire. It's basically Maxim trying to pretend it's sophisticated and with less TnA

I actually like Esquire. More tradional styling than GQ, Details, or Men's Journal. It's probably tied with Men's Health for my favorite of the "men's mags".

NBC/Universal has decided to rebrand G4 as the Esquire Channel (in a partnership with Esquire Magazine) as a new upscale channel hoping to appeal to the "untapped metrosexual viewership." Cooking, travel, and fashion shows are being developed, as well as perhaps a new one for gaming (for you former G4 watchers).

Sounds like BRAVO basically.

No. Bravo is for actual homosexuals...and middle aged women.

Re: G4 becomes the Esquire Channel

This news has finally got me to start watching X-Play and Attack of the Show again, and now I'm going to miss it when it's gone... though it's definitely a shadow of what it was a mere year ago and I didn't even know it before that.
