So when does this channel officially switch over?
It's been made official , April 22nd.

Tons of info about it here..
http://www.ign.com/articles/2013/02/...ally-announced

this is being described as an 'upscale Bravo for men"

the first two original series announced are
The Getaway (working title)," a celebrity traveling 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";
and Knife Fight, 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."

They will also show reruns of Parks and Rec and Party Down.

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

Adam Scott must be like the posterboy for the image this network is going try to display.

Reruns of 'Psych' and 'Burn Notice' acquired, as well as a new original travel show called American Field Trip.

So far I'm not mad at what this channel is potentially becoming. More intrigued than anything.

Saw a trailer for The Getaway featuring Joel McHale, looks entertaining.

^ Doesn't seem nearly as different from any other cooking show as they're trying to make it look, but the celebrity panel (especially seeing Eric in there) makes me more likely to check it out.

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.

I want to be excited about Knife Fight but I really hate Ilan. I'll probably still watch though.

The more advertising I see, the less I hate the idea of it.

Yep, even though they're all reality shows so far, all the original programming for this looks surprisingly enjoyable. Pair that with the syndicated stuff they landed, this network should be not that bad.
