Kevin Pereira leaving G4TV
Attack of the Show's Kevin Pereira is leaving G4TV. With Sessler and Pereira throwing in the towel in less than a month's span, this may be a sign of trouble within the network.
Chalk up another blow to G4TV as Attack of the Show co-host Kevin Pereira has announced his departure from G4. Pereira has been the co-host Attack of the Show since 2006 and has also done live coverage of events such as E3 and Comic-Con for G4.
In a statement released by G4TV.com, Pereira says he will not shy away from the small screen. “I plan to turn my attention to full-time with my production company Super Creative and live touring nerd-carnival leetUP,” he stated.
Pereira’s departure from G4 may be a sign of bad times for the network. Two week ago, X-Play host and TechTV/G4TV veteran Adam Sessler announced his departure from the network. Both Sessler and Pereira have not commented on relations with G4 but confirm that they will continue to work with the television medium.
How is this bad news? Now if Dustin would leave ScrewAttack if he hasn't already.
I always kinda thought of him as a tool........still do, just an really unoriginal tool
I know right, I missed Martin Sargent, his show was kick ass
I cared more about when Olivia left AOTS more than Kevin or sessler.
2001-2004 was the best time for G4 then it fell hard. I thought TechTv was so much better before the merge happened.
wow it's amazing that g4 managed to live on for this long
Oh no, G4 could be going down. This is terrible...*snicker* Nope, couldn't say it with a straight face. Best of luck to you Kevin.
Cared more about Sessler leaving G4 than Pereira but at least Pereira realized and considered requesting huge changes to fix the channel's problems.
I don't like AotS or Kevin Pereira, but i know alot of people do, so G4 is dead now
Cops because video games make us want to become criminals. Cheaters because more often then not we cheat in video games meaning we will cheat on our significant other. Duh, man you guys are dumb.
How exactly does Cops, and Cheaters represent shows inspired by video games? They should have stuck with the great classics especially Arena!
smarted move he could make, since that channel is in a coma.
ScrewTV? Then what would be the point of watching it? (Sorry, joke popped into my fraun). But seriously, that could be a good idea. Maybe buyout the G4TV slot?
I see big things in his career now.
Neil Tiles is what happened when he took over in 2005 and I quote...
"Now, under the aegis of Comcast and new president Neal Tiles, G4 is evolving into a lifestyle channel, peppered with videogame culture, as opposed to wall-to-wall games." 'We're going through a change. Guys like to play games, but not necessarily watch a bunch of shows with games on the screen,' Tiles says. 'So what we're doing now is expanding G4 from a network solely defined by videogames to one inspired by them.'"
It's really unfortunate but I hope that G4 will just stop airing after all these people have left in due time. As a fan who started watching the birth of G4, when the first week played the same shows as reruns constantly, I miss the old lineup. G4TV.com, Portal (not the game ;p), Filter, especially Arena and all the others, those were so fun to watch. It shows how ignorant these "presidents" are at not being able to understand who there viewer base is. I play video games a lot and even I would sit out from playing my games to watch people playing video games. Sigh, stupid corporations...lol
Oh no, where will I watch Cops and Cheaters now that G4 is going out of business? Maybe every other channel? I would rather watch someone beat Hydlide then watch any of their syndicated crap....maybe now we can get a REAL gamer network, maybe ScrewTV or SABC? c'mon Craig make it happen!
Best move in his career.
I stopped watching G4 a loooooong time ago, basically when they took off all of the funny shows and replaced them with crap (Cops? Cheaters? What tha what?). Congratulations to whoever thought THAT was a good idea. You've effectively destroyed what once was a great network.
Poor G4, what happened to you?
Yeah, I love Kevin on AOTS. But its been 6 years, its time to move on.
The other channels that had it?
