G4 network placed under the thumb of E!

G4 network moves to E!

In an attempt to consolidate its west-coast TV channels, Comcast has placed the G4 gaming network under the auspices of E! Entertainment Television, TV Week writes. For gamers, this is just the latest in a series of disappointments from G4. The network's programming has become increasingly diverted from gaming since its debut in 2002; some current shows include G.I. Joe, The Man Show, and Star Trek: The Next Generation. The E! changeover may accelerate G4's transformation into a non-gaming channel. "I do agree with the vision of going after young men more than just going after gaming," E!'s Ted Harbert says. "Gaming has been demonstrated as being too narrow." He may be right, since G4 is ranked 57th among 64 channels available on basic cable.
