Wait.. some people are actually okay with G4 being replaced by some shitty, metrosexual fashion channel, or am I misunderstanding the purpose of this new station?
I think fashion is just one part of it.
I just see it as a more sophisticated upscale version of Spike.

just make it a 24 hour slow-motion sara underwood channel
It would make sense to keep her as an on air personality considering she was Esquire's Hottest Woman Of The Year 2012

Saw a trailer for The Getaway featuring Joel McHale, looks entertaining.
The one with Aziz in Hong Kong should be great.

So is Anthony Bourdain going to be present in this at all? He's one of my favorite television personalities.
I think he is just producing it, he has a new travel show on CNN now so i don't think he'd be in two similar shows.
