Replacing G4
Quote:
New programming is already in development and will focus on the genres that other male-centric channels, such as Spike, have failed to provide for men. They include: cooking, travel, fashion and, in keeping with tradition, some gaming as well.


Will officially debut September 23rd.
Syndicated programming so far includes reruns of Parks and Recreation, Party Down, Burn Notice,Psych, and rebroadcasts of Late Night with Jimmy Fallon.

The original series announced so far are
The Getaway ,
Quote:
" a celebrity travel show produced by Anthony Bourdain features travel-loving, well known personalities - people deservedly famous for excellence in their fields - who take viewers to their favorite city on the planet, giving the insiders’ track on their top spots to eat, drink, shop and hang out This includes Aziz Ansari (Hong Kong), comedian Joel McHale (Belfast), musicperson Eve (Jamaica), actress Aisha Tyler (Paris), and José Andrés (Puerto Rico"

Knife Fight,
Quote:
produced by Drew Barrymore and about, per the press release, “underground, after-hours cooking competition where talented chefs go head to head in front of a rowdy crowd of celebrities, critics and die-hard foodies."
Hosted by Ilan Hall winner of season 2 of Top Chef

Brew Dogs - follows Scottish “beer evangelists” James Watt and Martin Dickie as they travel across America aiming to prove that the drink of the masses doesn’t need to taste mass-produced


Horse Players- centers on a competition for the title of America’s top handicapper in the high-stakes world of professional horse racing.

How I Rock It- NBA player Baron Davis profiles athletes, musicians and other celebrities. Produced by Ryan Seacrest.

Risky Listing- a docuseries about New York nightlife real estate

American Field Trip- featuring blogger/photojournalist Matt Hranek


· WHITE COLLAR BRAWLERS (6x60, premieres Fall) -- We've all daydreamed about it... Taking down an obnoxious colleague or pummeling a workplace rival. Produced by Authentic Entertainment, WHITE COLLAR BRAWLERS makes these dreams a reality. In every episode, two office adversaries push themselves to the limit and learn to box from some of the sport's most hardcore trainers. Finally, they'll step into the ring and put it all on the line - letting their fists determine the winner

BOUNDLESS
(8x60, premieres September 25, 2013) -- Two ultra athletes. Five months. Eight of the toughest endurance races in the world. With the globe as their playground, friends and fierce competitors Simon Donato and Paul "Turbo" Trebilcock aim to prove that boundaries are meant to be broken. The docuseries chronicles both pain and triumph as Turbo and Simon climb, run and bike up anything they can find over five straight months of extreme challenges. Will they finish all eight races and make it through this ultimate test of mind, body and spirit?

The only original G4 program that they will keep is American Ninja Warrior.

Eh. I watched AOTS every once in a while when Kevin was host, but not really at all since then. Going with Mira may have been a solid choice, but that Candace is just brutal. Good riddance.

Might as well. Hasn't been a gamer/ nerd network since it was TechTV, which was phenomenal.
