EDIT: This only applies to the American version of G4. Canadian viewers: Your channel should be safe. For now. Especially you, g1 Dark Magician.

Play this video while reading the article cause it's a PERFECT way to set the tone:

Well, I guess the writing was on the wall. G4, the network that kept us plugged in for 10 long years, just when it found its footing with Attack of the Show!, Ninja Warrior, and X-Play, is gonna get killed off next year.

NBC Universal, the channel's parent company said that it's looking to change to "a more sophisticated look while remaining true to its tech and vid game roots" by turning into a TV version of GQ and eschewing its nerd focus in favor of something more "modern male".

And there you have it, g1s. The channel that kept us plugged in for 10 long-ass years, had some ups and downs (Game On, anyone?), acquired a competing tech network, exiled Leo Laporte to Canada and made him later start his own tech website. They made Olivia Munn jump in a giant chocolate pie, eat a hot dog and confront a fear of balloons; but now they're turning thru GQ lane down right of Modern Male Blvd and frankly, I'm gonna miss it.

How 'bout you? What were your favorite memories of G4 and/or TechTV? Are you said to see this legendary nerd channel go? And are you pissed that they might go gay, somewhere along the line, a la Bravo? Jot 'em down below!
