The Nail in the Coffin for TechTV

It's official... G4 is finally dropping the TechTV in their title, and have finally succeeded in eliminating any resemblance that it had with the channel they "acquired" in 2004. It's useless to spin my wheels complaining about what Comcast did to our beloved TechTV, so I will just end with a timely quote on the situation from Gabe over at Penny Arcade:

I think that the idea of a television channel that focuses on videogames and technology is an exciting one. Obviously there is a lot of potential for some quality shows on a channel like that. I think that’s why people dislike G4 so much. It’s not just because the stuff they make is so bad. There are plenty of bad television shows on every channel. It’s the fact that they are wasting all that potential, and that’s what is so disappointing.
