The End of G4 Has Finally Arrived

It has been 2 years since Comcast officially announced the the end of G4, with the cancelation of the network's two top programs, Attack of the Show! and X-Play, and the transference of Ninja Warrior to NBC. Since then, the former hosts have found new homes, including Adam Sessler's move to Revision3.

Somehow, the network is still on the air; at least as of the writing of this article. Comcast will shutter the network after November 30th, following 2 years of no new programming and no clear direction. After that time you will have to find somewhere else to catch hours of Cops reruns.

Founder and former CEO Charles Hirschhorn has taken this opportunity to raise money for charity. He has started an auction of G4 branded materials, including T-shirts and hats. The prices are higher than you might expect, considering the network has been dead for so long. Perhaps this is a sign that the network had more fans than thought, or perhaps this is simply nostalgia run rampant.

Either way, the brand only has a few more days of life. Will you, or do you already, miss what G4 was in its heyday? Let us know in the comments. For those of us who admired what G4 and TechTV managed to do, especially in their early days, and were even inspired by some of what happened, I know we miss what used to be.
