As a TechTV fan, I am all but contractually obliged to hate G4 and root for its failure and utter demise. Why shouldn’t I? When Comcast bought TechTV, instead of it being a solid merger of equals (which it wasn’t), the lesser-known G4 culture took over the more tech-savvy, nerd-friendly environment of TechTV. The show that was essentially the face of TechTV, The Screen Savers, was affected the most in the transition, eventually morphing into Attack of the Show. The show affected the least was X-Play, one of the two real reasons Comcast bought TechTV for in the first place (the other being the lucrative, plentiful channel space). By the end of 2005, the G4 virus had completely taken over the network, and all things TechTV was gone.
