    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

    YouTube
    The Sifl and Olly Show is a show about 2 sock puppets named Sifl and Olly who run a low-budget TV show out of their apartment. The duo host a variety of segments throughout the show. It's usually referred to as the lowest-rated program to ever air on MTV. Segments include: Calls from the Public - Sifl and Olly would take calls, either with a question or comment; from their fans, landlord, or even Olly's mother. Interview Time - The interviews rarely went without a hitch. Usually Sifl had forgotten to book the star or spent all the money on some lame scheme or product. The interviews then were either substituted with another lesser interviewee or Olly would dress up as the person. Rock Facts - Sifl and Olly would ask a question, either before commercial or during the show pertaining to rock history. The answers were usually made up and non-sensical, but Olly made it clear that Bjork was off limits. Rock! - Pretty much self explanatory, Sifl and Olly would break out in song. Precious Roy - In order to help finance the show, Sifl and Olly would sell merchandice that Precious Roy himself made. Olly would go crazy during his sales-pitch. They would then take calls from people who have already bought the products. The segment would end with Precious Roy making a comment on the item, but due to his loss of senility, he usually says something totally out of the blue. A Moment with Chester - Chester, Sifl and Olly's friend, would come on and do an interview. Letters to Chester - As a follow up to 'A Moment With Chester,' they introduced this new segment. In it, Sifl & Olly read the letters and Chester responded to them. It's Almost the End of the Show - The show usually wrapped up with Sifl and Olly doing a musical number. During the second season of the show, MTV edited down some of the episodes and inserted music videos. During the videos Sifl, Olly, and Chester would pop onto the screen doing some dance or gag. Pretty unproductive. The episodes are titled after the opening scene. If there is none, it's named after the first Chester scenemoreless
