For years I think we all can agree that we all have watched G4TV. The channel was behind shows like Attack of the Show, X-Play and many more. They also had live coverage of Comic-Con and E3. Earlier this year, it was revealed that G4 will make a move to rebrand itself and partner with Esquire or another men’s magazine like GQ in order to tap into a “more upscale, sophisticated guy TV space.” One of the names the channel was considering calling the new station was G4Men. Now the channel will be called the Esquire channel.



G4TV Esquire’s programming will now appeal to the “untapped metrosexual viewership.” The rebranding efforts will “shift the former gaming network to a destination more in line with the modern male.” New programming that is in development will focus on the genres that other male-centric channels, like Spike, have failed to provide for men. These new programs will include programs about cooking, travel, fashion and, some gaming as well. This will happen around early 2013.

So what do you guys think? Will any of you be checking out their cooking shows or fashion shows? Comment below? Peace.

I loved G4, even after Olivia Munn left it was still fun to watch, but i got pissed when DirecTv cut it off. Now that I heard kevin left and saw a some clips of recent shows, IDK, call me nostalgic but the show didnt feel the same anymore, but still wish it the best ...LONG LIVE G4 :]

Happy about this and G4 is past done. Looking forward to this as long as there's shows about hot chicks and nice suits.

G4 was a really bad channel. I miss TechTV more.

So excited to hear G4 will be rebranded as the Esquire Channel. Men's fashion, cooking, travel, and design

i hope it fails miserably ! Sounds like a POS network. I love xplay & Attack of the Show.

If Sara Underwood and Mila Kunis are in then I watch...
TheJester - 12/10/2012, 9:44 AM
why is she smelling her finger?
Jimll565 - 12/10/2012, 11:40 AM
I don't think you can use "Metro sexual" and "Male" in the same sentence.
MisterMagurlypse - 12/10/2012, 11:45 AM
This is a good change. G4 was going down the toilet anyway. Remember guys, nothing turns a woman on than a guy who can cook. Learn something and get you some!

Just what we needed: Another "Ovation" or "Bravo" knock-off. Can't get enough high brow, artsie fartsie programming.

The only way I EVER tune into that channel is if Olivia Munn is on there naked all the time.

G4 has been pretty shitty for years so I won't miss it.
