    Attack of the Show (or "AOTS")--the self-proclaimed "show that gets it before it gets out"--is a signature show of G4, the video game network. There's the inside track, and then there are those who pave the inside track. Attack of the Show gets you inside, underneath, around, and behind the newest tech, the hottest games, the fastest-breaking news, and the oddest oddities from the fringe. In addition to reporting the hot Internet memes of the day, AOTS features interviews with both famous and internet-famous celebrities, the most-blogged news of the day, coverage of alt-events like the Geek Prom and the Modern Drunkard Festival, and the latest games and gear for PCs and consoles. AOTS is also well-known for its regular weekly segments such as "Gems of the Internet," "DVDuesday," "It Came From eBay," "The Feed," "User Created," "AOTS LAN Party," "Free Play Friday," and "Damn Good Download."moreless

    G4 (ended 2013)
    It's Game Time. Airing on G4, X-Play provides reviews and previews of the latest video games. Hosted by Adam Sessler and Morgan Webb, each episode rates new video games releases on a 5 point scale and previews soon to be released games with game trailers, clips and hands on demos with the game makers. Mixed with highbrow and lowbrow humor, it's "TV's gaming source, that feeds your daily gaming addiction." Originally airing on the ZDTV network in 1998 as GameSpot TV, the show was hosted by Adam Sessler and Lauren Fielder for the first year and Sessler and Kate Botello afterwards. A typical episode began with an update of information posted on the GameSpot website then went into game reviews where games were ranked according to GameSpot's 0.1-10.0 scale. Other segments included interview game designers and hints and cheats on games. In 2001, TechTv acquired ZDTV and changed the name of the show to Extended Play. Much of the original format remained, but the rating scale was simplified to the 5 point scale. Botello remained with the show for a year, and Sessler would host on his own until 2003 when the name changed to X-Play and he would gain another Co-Host with Morgan Webb, formally of The Screen Savers. With the inception of X-Play, the show became more comical and darker. Skits were added that included many of the crew of the show and became fan favorites. More mature games and subject matter were discussed and it wasn't unusual to see someone "die" in an episode (only to be revived in the next one). While the reviews and previews remained the show began to show some variety show elements which many fans enjoyed. Self depreciating humor and recurring characters helped make the show more than just a simple review show. During this time G4 merged with TechTV and later disbanded many of the networks former employees. X-Play survived the merge and would later become the only show that survived that period, including all of the original G4 shows. Eventually, the skits were removed, the humor was toned down, and X-Play became a streamlined show more like it's roots with game reviews, previews cheats and interviews with game designers and members of the gaming community. With additional correspondents (American Idol contestant and former G4 Cheat! host Kristin Adams and former Road Rules member Blair Herter) the occasional dirty reference and a wide library of games to choose from, X-Play has become one of the most watched shows on G4 and boasts to be the highest rated video game show on television. On October 26, 2012, it was announced by G4 that X-Play (along with Attack of the Show) was canceled and would endproduction at the end of the year.This was due to G4 being rebranded in February 2013to the Equire Network, a channeldevoted to the"metrosexual" demographic. The final episode aired as a one hour special on Wednesday January 23, 2013.moreless
