    Depends on your definition of down hill.  Yes they have balanced viewing not everything is about gaming and quite frankly gaming is taking a backseat which i'm not happy about but they've expanded pretty well.  Even though I don't watch half of what they show I can understand.  Only thing I don't like are the man show, star trek, and Brainiac.

    absolutely it has gone downhill but at least X Play unlike AOTS has remained the same and are in fact better for it. I liked Brainiac it was much like Mythbusters which is another great show. Back on topic yes G4 is much like the current Nickelodeon which I will say sucks. Stand at attention and Salute you Shorts! Stick Stickly was and always will be awesome. Much like AOTS used to be the single best show on television. I would have missed LOST for that show but not anymore!

    AOTS used to be Screen Savers, the good old days when the network was about games. When it was g4techtv, there was still a glimmer of hope but when G4 took over, I knew it could only go downhill. The worst party is how now they always talk about sex, drugs, porn and all that other crap. The occasional reference joke is funny but I think X-Play is one of the things that keeps the station alive. The only shows I watch are X-Play, AOTS,and Cheat. Anyone notice that the new Filter didn't last long, after it stopped being about video games.

    I wasn't sure until I saw Fastlane being introduced to the G4 lineup.  The only shows I ever watch are X-Play, Cheat, and AOTS, but if they add any more crap like Fastlane, the network will have completely jumped the shark.

    Yes G4 is going downhill fast, after they got that Midnight Spank and Star Trek it went downhill fast, they got rid of the original better Filter (That's actually game related), Cenematech (the original better one), the beter Icons (whichh now is changed and they seperated the good version from the bad version by calling the old verion Game Makers, but they never actually show it) and many other good shows. Now the only good shows left are X-PLay, Cheat and Attack of the Show.

    They still show Cinematech, daily at 11AM or something. I like NE a lot more though, probably because they show a bunch of Japan-only games. Not the reason you may think.

    I still like Nick, but I'd rather not kill myself. That's not even funny. Anyway, I agree that G4 sucks now. It's a "video game" channel, and it has a "video game" block with only three "video game" shows in it? I miss TechTV. I even miss G4TechTV. Whatever happened to Filter, Judgement Day, and...well, it's been so long, I can't even remember the other good shows I used to watch. G4 is now a "man" channel. Isn't that what Spike TV is for?

    yeah the second they took off Judgement Day I really lost all interest in the channel as a whole.

     I get the idea that they want to have stuff that is about more than just video games/tech stuff, but that was suppose to be idea of the channel. Why did they get rid of so many decent, new, and unique shows to air reruns of shows that have been cancelled.

    Yeah, I'd hate to say it but it is going downhill. All that's left is Attack of the Show, Cheat, and X-Play. Why did they get Cops, Ninja Warrior and Cheaters? Ninja Warrior is ok, but who here watches Cheaters? Really? Star Trek is a very good show, but when I want to watch G4 I want video games. Besides, Spike shows all the Star Treks, why doesn't G4 give the the old/first one? And Spike also shows Cops or other cop shows every day, G4 does not need to air any episodes. And I used to like Filter, in fact it was my second favorite, but then it was about other stuff. (Or so I read.) They need more video games on the show. What ones were cancelled, besides Filter? I remeber a few but I'm not sure what they were called. Any one know?

    G4 is seriously going downhill. Even X-Play is starting to get affected negatively by the failing channel as a whole and that show has been holding it off for years. They need to hire people who are actually in touch with video games and technology and place those people in higher up positions, and introduce more original programming that stays true to its original theme. I mean look at the programming now, what the heck is COPS doing on G4?
